"Made of Stone" is a single from The Stone Roses' eponymous debut album. Jackson Pollock was given a name check (along with his work "No. 5, 1948") in the B-side "Going Down" in the line "There she looks like a painting, Jackson Pollock's "No. 5".

Pollock's "drip and pour" paintings were a big influence on the cover art guitarist John Squire was producing at the time, as well as the band's musical instruments.

The band made their debut on national British TV by performing this song on BBC's cultural show The Late Show in September 1989, resulting in a power cut 60 seconds into the song and Ian Brown infamously walking off shouting "Amateurs!" [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgGTQgvCPOU]

The song was used during some of the road trip scenes in the 1997 American movie, "Heaven or Vegas".

B-side "Guernica" (the title of which references Pablo Picasso's Guernica) is "Made of Stone" in reverse, but with forward lyrics.

Quote

John: "'Made of Stone' about making a wish and watching it happen. Like scoring a goal in a Cup final...on a Harley Electroglide...dressed as Spider-Man".
