Hagar has said that he was originally going to call this album One Way To Rock. It was a British fan who told him of the term that came to be the title. In Cockney rhyming slang, a "Hampton" is a term for a penis. One that is "standing", of course, would be a reference to an erection. This led to the cover art that shows a gentleman greeting a woman in various states of undress.
The 45 single released for "I'll Fall in Love Again" includes the B-side, "Satisfied", which (as of 2008) has not been released in another format.
"There's Only One Way to Rock" went on to be one of Hagar's biggest solo hits and a signature tune. This song, along with "I Can't Drive 55", were the two Hagar songs that Van Halen consistently played when he joined the band.
A different version of the song "Heavy Metal" was used for the soundtrack for the animated movie Heavy Metal.
The lyrics to the song "Inside Lookin' In" refers to "ringin' just like one UXB". UXB is an acronym for an "unexploded bomb". No known references to the UK punk band UXB have ever been cited.
The lyrics to "Sweet Hitchhiker" refers to "Blaupunkt blastin' my favorite song". Blaupunkt refers to a popular brand of car stereo.
