Miscellaneous

  • The title of the album was taken from a song featured on Guided by Voices' 1994 album, Bee Thousand.
  • Critics say "In Transit" is the most Strokes-like song on the album. This is expected, due to the fact that the song was originally written by Hammond to be used by The Strokes (then called "Obstinate"), but it was decided that the song simply didn't fit in well enough. He used an early demo recording of the song as well as for "Bright Young Thing" and "Everyone Gets a Star" as the soundtrack for the band's 2001 European tour video, "In Transit".
  • Albert debuted a new song, "In My Room", in London during his tour of the UK. In live shows he sometimes includes a Guided by Voices cover and "Back to the 101" B-side, "Postal Blowfish."
  • The outtakes "Well...All Right" and "Back To The 101" (Alternate Version) have been used as B-sides.
