Son of A Gun is the debut extended play single by Glasgow alternative rock group The Vaselines. The title-song of this EP came to a wider audience after Nirvana covered it, along with "Molly's Lips", on their compilation album Incesticide. "You Think You're A Man" is a cover of a song written by the cult-film actor Divine, while the other two were written by Frances McKee and Eugene Kelly.
All songs written by Kelly and McKee except where noted.
- "Son of a Gun"
- "Rory Rides Me Raw"
- "You Think You're a Man" (Geoff Deane)
A reggae version of the title track was released on the Little Roy album Battle for Seattle in 2011.
