Asswhuppin’ In A Trunk (a.k.a. Asswoop or Edward) is the fifth track (fourth song) on the aborted third Madhouse album, 24. In March 1995, concertgoers at later dates on The Ultimate Live Experience tour received an NPG Records Sampler Experience cassette featuring various clips of "upcoming releases" - Asswhuppin’ In A Trunk was featured (as well as Ethereal Segue and Parlor Games).

In 2001, the full version was included on NPG Ahdio Show 6, but was not available as a separate download. At the time of recording, Asswhuppin’ In A Trunk was titled Edward, but was later renamed Asswoop or Asswhuppin’ In A Trunk - both titles have been used, but Asswhuppin’ In A Trunk appears to be the title settled on prior to the aborted release (used on both the NPG Records Sampler Experience and on NPG Ahdio Show 6). However it was registered at ASCAP under the title Asswoop.

Basic tracks were recorded on 7 July 1993 at Paisley Park Studios, during a five-hour session that also produced Carnac (later renamed 17), (Got 2) Give It Up, Parlor Games, Rootie Kazootie and a mostly-instrumental version of Space, all of which were intended for a third Madhouse album, 24.
