The film was shot with one camera and a sound person using the techniques of Direct Cinema and Cinéma vérité. Goodnight Cleveland is noted for its lack of dramatic arc which captures the boredom and tedium of touring life in a very realistic way.
The title Goodnight Cleveland is heard in the film when Hellacopters lead singer Nicke Andersson yells "goodnight Cleveland" to the audience at the end of the Agora Ballroom show, an inverted reference to the mockumentary film This Is Spınal Tap, in which bass player Derek Smalls yells, "Hello Cleveland" to an unseen audience as the band attempts to find their way to the stage, while lost in the boiler room of the theater before a concert.
