Mobile Estates is Citizen King's first (and only) major record release. Many songs off this album were used in pilot episodes and the series finale of Malcolm in the Middle. A remix of "Better Days (And the Bottom Drops Out)" was used in the movie Gone in 60 Seconds. The remix for "Better Days" along with "Checkout Line" can be found on a rare Japanese import.

On many P2P sites, the song "Better Days (And the Bottom Drops Out)'" is often falsely attributed to the band Sublime.
