- The song parodies several common elements of early They Might Be Giants songs, particularly ones written and sung by keyboardist John Linnell: the use of accordion, electric organ, saxophone and drum machine; and rambling, bizarrely morbid lyrics offset by cheery melodies. The slow organ intro sounds similar to the intros of TMBG's "Sensurround" and "Out of Jail"
- In the February 1999 "Ask Al" column, Al confirmed that the song's title is a reference to the Firesign Theatre 1974 album of the same name.
- The title is also similar to the first song on They Might Be Giants' debut album, "Everything Right Is Wrong Again".
- The accordion solo in this track is similar to the one in TMBG's "Rhythm Section Want Ad".
