"Time Bomb" featured Dee Dee's first lead vocal on a Ramones album. "Little Bit O' Soul" was a cover of a song originally recorded by The Music Explosion in 1967. "I Need Your Love" was also a cover song, originally recorded by The Boyfriends, as was "Time Has Come Today", originally recorded by The Chambers Brothers in 1968.
Marky Ramone was dismissed from the band during the production of the album. He can be seen lurking almost invisibly behind the window on the front album cover. Heartbreaker Billy Rogers filled in for him on "Time Has Come Today", and the album also features Heartbreaker Walter Lure on guitar. In the music videos for "Psycho Therapy" and "Time Has Come Today," Richie Ramone plays the drums.
