"Mother" is a song by Danzig that first appeared on their 1988 debut album, Danzig. Thematically, the song is a rhetorical challenge to parents who wish to shield their children from what is believed by Danzig to be the reality represented by heavy metal music.

The original 1988 music video was rejected by MTV for its ending sequence, which contains imagery of a chicken being sacrificed and an inverted cross being drawn in its blood (although Glenn noted that the chicken was not actually killed or harmed). A live recording of the song became a hit on radio and MTV in 1993–1994, after a music video with live footage was created to promote the band's new live EP, Thrall: Demonsweatlive. Both the original music video and the live footage version appeared on Beavis and Butt-head, in the episodes "Couch Fishing" and "Crisis Line".
