- From TMBG Unlimited: "Forged in the crucible of an eastern Massachusetts junior high, this song expresses the dreams, fears and hopes of a New England young adult. Remixed by the Elegant Too, the track celebrates the enchanting 'old school' sound of the mid-1980's inner city even as it invokes the 'older school' of early 1970's suburban Boston."
- In Boston slang, "wicked pissa" could be translated as "super great", while "dink" could mean a stupid person or a jerk.
- A sissy bar is a curved bar on the back of a motorcycle seat. They were often added to children's bicycles in the 1970s to emulate the motorcycle feature.
- According to TMBG's old Q&A, John Linnell's favorite hockey player is Bobby Orr.
