In the song, "The Thing That Only Eats Hippies", the band states that "Bob and Greg and Grant you should beware". This is a reference to the band Hüsker Dü, a punk trio from Minneapolis that featured Bob Mould on guitar and vocals, Greg Norton on bass and Grant Hart on drums and vocals.

The cover to the album was designed a year prior to the release by a friend of the band and Drexel University art student Brooke Heiser.
