  • From TMBG Unlimited, ""From a bootleg recording of the New Year's Eve Show in 1998 at Tramps in New York City we find the Johns, the Dans and Jim O'Connor battling it out for musical supremacy. While Jim O'Connor is apparently the only man standing by the end, it appears that only the audience is the clear winner in this ugly and brutal contest."
  • TDK on the title of the song: "The bootleg referred to was recorded by a friend of mine on cassette and transferred to CD by myself. I created liner notes, for which I personally named this track. I gave a copy of it to John Flansburgh in 2000, a year later he ripped the track for TMBG Unlimited and kept my title."
