In 1991, all 6 tracks from Hectic were later released on the self-titled compilation album, which also featured all the tracks from Energy and two tracks from the Turn It Around! compilation. Hectic was re-released on 12-inch vinyl by Hellcat Records on April 18, 2012.
Larry Livermore, founder of Lookout! Records, has said that Lookout! was founded solely to release an Operation Ivy record. Lookout! Records was in fact started with simply a PO Box in order to release records by Livermore's own band, The Lookouts. This was said to emphasize Operation Ivy's importance in Lookout! Records' catalog.
Hectic is often overshadowed by Energy, mainly because Hectic is included on the release of the compilation Operation Ivy. However, Hectic is widely regarded as the first ska-core record.
All lyrics are written by Jesse Michaels, except where noted; all music is composed by Operation Ivy.
