The cover is a cartoon-like drawing of Richard and Karen Carpenter listening to an LP album against an orange background. One of the 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 said that he "doesn't care for" this version of "Superstar". The album is the brainchild of Matt Wallace (Maroon 5, Replacements, Faith No More) and David Konjoyan.
The album is picked up by the title character in the film Juno, leading 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 the album cover for this compilation.
