Pandemonium is the second track on The Time's fourth and final album Pandemonium. Pandemonium was written by Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis and Jesse Johnson and Prince, but was credited to The Time. Strangely, Prince was missing from the track's initial copyright submission, but was added on a revised submission in June 1992. Prince's writing contribution may have been the "aristocratic black" rap/chant at the end of the track, which was originally used in Murph Drag. The track's production is credited to The Time, but it was likely produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.
While specific recording dates are not known, basic tracking likely took place in late 1989, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. Prince was likely not involved in the recording of the track, however.
