- Weißes Fleisch was among the first songs the band wrote. Its very first version was called White Flesh, because Till sung in English first. After the band switched to German, the working title for the song was Fleisch.
- While the tracklist spells the song with "ss", the correct German spelling is with "ß" like in the booklet. "ß" has been used as equivalent to the "ss" digraph, but had no official capital form until 2017; which is the reason why "ss" was used frequently, to avoid issues within modern and foremost international typography.
- On some first pressings of the album, the song had the words "Schulhof" (schoolyard) and "töten" (to kill) beeped during the first verse. There was no visual difference between the censored and uncensored version of the album.
- German death metal band Debauchery covered the song in 2007 for their album Back In Blood.
