Although the songs have no musical similarity, "Headcleaner" contains a lyrical reference to the Beatles song "All You Need Is Love":

Where "All You Need Is Love" goes: “ There's nothing you can do that can't be done Nothing you can sing that can't be sung Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game It's easy ”

In "Headcleaner" the line goes: “ Cause nothing has been done that can't be done Nothing has been sang that can't be sung And nothing has been said, so forget how to play the game It's easy ”

The line 'All you need is love' is also replaced with 'All you need is headcleaner'.
