  • John Flansburgh responding to a fan question on Twitter, "I hate the way Unforgotten came out. It could have been a really good song." He later elaborated on Tumblr:
Well, hated is maybe the wrong word. Disappointed or frustrated would be a better way to say it. It was made very quickly and kind of on a deadline as we had to have b-sides for an EP done. I felt like I didn’t really know how to shape it into a more complete arrangement, and the vocal performance sounds tentative. But those are the breaks.
