- This song appeared on the setlist for a show in 1985, scanned online by John Flansburgh in the early 2010s. According to Flansburgh, the song was a sample-filled "pop rock" number including drum tracks by Dave Crigger in 5/4 time. The Johns used a similar drum track for the song "Now That I Have Everything".
- Bill Krauss on the Don't Let's Start fan podcast, recalling the song:
That used a recording of some guy that Flansburgh knew, I think. And it's a really weird vocal. He's like "I Wouldn't Be Mad!" [...] I think that may be the same guy [from I'm Def]. [...] Maybe I'm full of shit. I make many mistakes, I will say that. Maybe I'm just connecting them on an emotional level, which is quite possible. It's a good story, so I'll make it work.
- This song's name was one of a few unreleased tracks featured on a 2001 official TMBG shirt which listed all of the band's songs up to that point.
