This song was the infamous "total dumpout" song for WNEW (broadcasting the metropolitan New York area) when the station used too much vulgarity or anything deemed obscene by the company. After too many "dumps" by a show, this song would start in order to give the master computer time to rebuild dump time on the radio station. The song would kick in when any show dumped out too much. Many times the theory to how much dump time were in the computer were challenged many a nights by the "Opie and Anthony" or "Ron and Fez" show between June 1998 and January 2003.
In 2010, Polish female singer Doda uploaded her cover on YouTube and performed it live on the New Year's Eve 2010/11 concert in Warsaw. In May 2011 she released her second studio album, 7 pokus głównych (The 7 Temptations), where dance-pop cover of "Ain't Talkin' 'bout Love" written and produced by 5th Element was included as a bonus song.
