The film includes more than 5,000 edits, a record.
Originally intended to be a documentary entitled "The Cook" about Methamphetamine cooks (makers of the drug) and its dealers and abusers. Instead, the project became a screenplay based on three days in the life of the film's creator/writer/co-producer, Will De Los Santos as he drove a methamphetamine cook around Eugene, Oregon, for three days in the winter of 1995.
The doctor who says, "That's gotta hurt," to Frisbee after he is shot is played by Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins fame, who also wrote some of the songs for the movie.
Originally Spider Mike was to be completely naked when he masturbates but John Leguizamo refused to do it. He compromised by wearing a sock over his penis.
Jonas Almqvist gave Jonas Åkerlund permission to use Leather Nun's song "506" for free if he made a music video for him. As of 2010, Åkerlund has still not returned the favor.
Mena Suvari wore resin on her teeth to make them look grungier. She had to get her teeth professionally cleaned afterwards to remove it.
The original cut was 3-1/2 hours long.
Chloe Hunter previously appeared in the poster for American Beauty (1999) as the navel which many assumed belonged to Mena Suvari.
Spun made over $42,000,000 (USD) in home video rentals in the first 3 months of release in the USA alone.
Producer Danny Vinik's arm is used in the scene where John Leguizamo's character 'Spider Mike' shoots up methamphetamine.

One of the characters is watching a video by Norwegian black metal band Satyricon. The song is called "Mother North". The group agreed to Jonas Åkerlund using the video upon condition that he direct their next video clip "Fuel for Hatred". He shot the video in 2003.

The film was shot in 22 days.
The turd that appears to drop out of Mena Suvari is actually a softened up Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.
Madonna was originally cast as The Neighbor, then porn star then Ginger Lynn. The role eventually went to Debbie Harry. Madonna backed out because of scheduling conflicts with her 2001 North American tour. Lynn backed out for unknown reasons, and was replaced by Harry.
The wrestling video playing in Mickey Rourke's room is the Insane Clown Posse's "Juggalo Championsh*t Wrestling" (JCW).
There are 20 producer/ co-producer credits.
