  • Performed frequently in late 1997 to introduce the band during their Severe Tire Damage '97-'98 tour, it was originally considered for inclusion on the live album according to a September 1997 newsletter[1], but the instrumental would not be chosen for release.
  • A studio version of this song was recorded at the band's first sessions at Coyote Studios in 1999 alongside "Rest Awhile"[2], which were the last studio recordings featuring bassist Graham Maby[3]. It appears in the Malcolm in the Middle episode "Water Park"[4].
