One Foot in the Grave is the third independent studio album and fourth overall by American alternative rock musician Beck, released in June 1994 on K Records, an independent label. It was recorded prior to the release of Mellow Gold, but was not released until after that album had met critical and commercial success.

Well there aint nobody left to impress and everyone's kissing their own hands its 666 on the kichen floor aint no fire in the pan.

Getting fat on your own fears bring that beer over here i stomp on the floor just to make a sound.

Recorded prior to Mellow Gold but released several months after that album turned Beck into an overnight sensation, One Foot in the Grave bolsters his neo-folkie credibility the way the nearly simultaneously released Stereopathetic Soul Manure accentuated his underground noise prankster credentials.

The year "Loser" charted at on the Billboard Hot 100 (1994, probably hoisted up by cassingle-crazy prepubescents like me), Beck actually released three full-length albums: the canonical Mellow Gold ; the messy, skit-heavy Stereopathetic Soul Manure ; and One Foot in the Grave, a set of ramshackle folk songs about, roughly, the apocalypse. While SC was unimaginatively billed as his "mature" album, I'm not sure that he was actually any more mature in 2002 than he was in 1994. True, the obvious "relationship" songs here- "Asshole" (as in "She'll do anything to make you feel like an") and "Girl Dreams" (as in the ones that "never come true")- lean on familiar (if funny) self-deprecation.

Beck had recorded the One Foot In The Grave album before the release of Mellow Gold, which had itself arrived only a matter of days after Stereopathetic Soulmanure landed on the Flipside label. For One Foot In The Grave, the latest in a series of associations with small, autonomous labels was with the Olympia-Washington based K Records, who would later be a vital cog in the early development of Built To Spill and Modest Mouse. That’s not to say that One Foot was not a steady seller. By 2013, Billboard was reporting that the album had sold a sturdy 168,000 in the US alone, and Soulmanure another 146,000. They were part of a running sales total, for his album catalogue in America to that point, of some . million. Back in 1994, as ‘Loser’ swept all before it even while Beck was clinging to his indie moorings, he was struggling to understand his new notoriety.
