The cover features a cartoon-like drawing of Richard and Karen Carpenter listening to an LP album against an orange background. One of the most acclaimed songs on the album is Sonic Youth's rendition of "Superstar", which, along with the album, was mentioned in the 2007 film Juno. Richard Carpenter has stated that he "doesn't care for" this version of "Superstar".
The album is picked up by the character Juno in the movie of the same name, and leads to a discussion of one the bands on the album, Sonic Youth. Throughout season 4 of Melrose Place, the picture above Sydney's mantle is actually the album cover for this compilation.
