- Meat Puppets lead Curt Kirkwood on the inclusion of They Might Be Giants backing the track:
Our manager at the time, Jamie Kitman, I think he still manages They Might Be Giants, so [he] knew those guys a little bit. I just met 'em. I didn't know 'em very well, but once we recorded it, they heard it and they were like "Hey, can we do that?" "Hell yeah, that'll be fun." So it was done already and they went and slapped that on there — just took it right out.
