Jane's Addiction, also known as Triple-X or XXX, is the debut album by Jane's Addiction. The band opted to record their debut album live in an attempt to better capture the energy they were known for. The album was recorded live at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles on January 26, 1987, with some light overdubs and corrections added at The Edge studio in Los Angeles, including an audience applause dub from a Los Lobos concert.
The songs "Jane Says" and "Pigs in Zen" were both re-recorded in 1988 and released on Nothing's Shocking, the band's major label debut. "Whores" and "Chip Away" were re-recorded in 2009 by the reunited Jane's Addiction for release on the NINJA EP, a collaboration with Nine Inch Nails to help promote the joint NINJA tour.
The very first CD pressing of the album contains a typo in the track list on the disc itself; "Pigs in Zen" is listed as "Pigs in Ten." This typo was corrected on all subsequent pressings.
