  • The title of the song 'YFLMD' is an acronym for 'You Fuck Like My Dad'
  • Regarding "Kevin Is Gay", Annie Hardy said: "Kevin is just a guy though, the song is nothing to do with him. But this guy, a friend of ours, hacked into our website, so it's a response to him. We posted up on there, 'Kevin, stop posting all this stupid crap on our website. Come and see us tomorrow when we'll be debuting our new song "Kevin is Gay"'. And the title just stuck." [1]
  • Hardy said in an interview that the clip at the beginning of "Kevin Is Gay" is her imitating the sound of the shoryuken special move from the Street Fighter series of arcade games. [2]
