  • The album art is a parody of Nirvana's album Nevermind, and was even photographed in the same swimming pool.
  • Al ended up recording one too many original songs for this album, and chose to include "I Was Only Kidding" over "Waffle King", the main reason being that the line "I really love you... NOT!" in the former song would become too dated if it were released later (it's a reference to the movie Wayne's World, which came out in 1992). "Waffle King" was included on Al's next album Alapalooza.
    • "Waffle King" was also a B-side on the single for "Smells Like Nirvana", so the song wouldn't go to waste in case Al never got to make another record.
  • The six-second-long hidden track "Bite Me" (consisting of Al screaming over musical noise and sound effects) is included on CD versions of the album after several minutes of silence at the end of "You Don't Love Me Anymore". Al intended it as a parody of Nevermind's hidden track "Endless, Nameless", (a chaotic, noisy, six-minute long song) and as a way to scare listeners who forgot to turn off their CD players. The track isn't included on cassette versions of the album.
    • A snippet of "Bite Me" accompanies the Ear Booker Productions logo at the end of The Weird Al Show.
