Dean Ween: "Joppa Road is a road outside of DC that we used to drive past on tour, and it looks so fucking funny on a sign."

He goes on to say, "The idea was you're cruisin' down a road, which is the name of the song, with wind blowing through your hair, and it's, like, the cruisin' vibe- sunny, cruisin', blue-sky vibe, which is what "Ventura Highway" (by the band America) is, taken to the max. It's the Ween bastardization by accident."

Joppa Road is track #11 on the 1994 Ween release, Chocolate and Cheese.

Historical tidbit: Joppa Road was originally an Indian trail and was still used as such as late as 1697.
