"Eat That Question" was written for the 1972 LP The Grand Wazoo. It is a rather basic jam piece in the form of head-solo-solo-head, with an introduction on electric piano by George Duke. The main theme (or head) is in the bass register, a heavy-driving motif. On the studio version, Duke plays a mean solo, followed by an average guitar solo by Zappa. The theme comes back embellished by multi-tracked trumpet cues from Sal Marquez backed by marching drums, suddenly turning the tune into a victory parade, which would fit the loose concept of the album, the story printed on its sleeve, and the title of the piece.
