Created as the album cover for Green Day’s Insomniac, "God Told Me to Skin You Alive" is a ref­er­ence to the Dead Kennedys first album, “Fresh Fruit for Rot­ting Veg­eta­bles”. The cover art con­tains an image (the den­tist) that was orig­i­nally used in a col­lage fea­tured in the insert book­let art of Dead Kennedys’ album Plas­tic Surgery Dis­as­ters.

There are also three skulls on the entire album cover– one for each mem­ber of Green Day. One of the skulls requires you to view the piece at an angle. The hid­den skull is taken from Hans Holbein’s 1533 paint­ing The Ambassadors.
