  • The ID3 tag for the MP3 and liner notes for Almanac list the song as being performed in Glasgow, UK on September 27, 2004. However, it was actually performed live at The Fillmore in San Francisco, CA on August 14, 2004. Flansburgh even says "...and this, ladies and gentlemen of San Francisco, is his true story" before the song.
  • This live recording appears as an exclusive bonus track on the version of Here Come the 123s and is mislabelled as 'John Lee Superstar'.
