"Pretty Penny" is a 1995 promo single from Stone Temple Pilots' 1994 album "Purple". It differs greatly in style from the rest of the songs on the album, and serves as a calm, old-fashioned interlude between the distorted and delirious "Still Remains" and the aggressive, sinister "Silvergun Superman".

According to lead vocalist Scott Weiland, this song was his last desperate attempt to prove to himself that he was not a drug addict; his heroin addiction later became a huge problem for the band and led to two hiatuses.
