This song features bassist Les Claypool soulfully slapping and tapping his bass. In the video about 40 seconds of the outro were removed. It appears to be about the pointlessness of mundane activities such as waiting in line at Department of Motor Vehicles, going to the dentist and sitting on cold toilet seats etc., and seeking relief through THC. The lyrics reference the previous album Sailing the Seas of Cheese.
The video for "DMV" features live and backstage footage from the 10/1/1993 show at the Greek Theater in Berkeley, CA and clips from a toilet, animation and artwork used for the "Tommy the Cat" video. Due the length of the song the video was cut to 4:29.
