Trivia/Info

  • In a song-by-song guide of No!, the Johns said this of "Fibber Island":
Fibber Island is a traditional song written as a national anthem during the Island's tumultuous drive for independence from the US in the 1960s. Located directly to the east of Nantucket, Massachusetts, Fibber Island has been a vacation destination for CIA and retiring black ops agents for years, but when they moved to become their own nation-state, the Island was 'disappeared' by Lyndon Johnson and the FBI.
  • The kids singing in the background are actually Flans, just with a much higher pitch.
