- In an essay for Modern Drummer, Marty Beller stated that he generated the percussion for this song using his knuckles on the body of an acoustic guitar.
- The year 2082 will mark 100 years after They Might Be Giants formed as a band in 1982.
- A 2011 review of Join Us for The Wrap described the song as such:
The tracks that don't sound like wry extracts from a non-existent musical-comedy tend to be perfectly formed literary conceits. "2082" is a science-fiction short story in just under two minutes, with a protagonist who travels into the future, finds himself hobbled but still unhappily alive all the way into the next millennium, and travels back to the title year to smother himself with a pillow in a mercy killing.
