*"Legend in My Spare Time" - "Do What You Want to Do" by T-Connection
*"Mama Say" - "Goodhumor Man" by Blue Mitchell and "Save a Prayer" by Duran Duran
*"One Way" - "Boogie Shoes" by KC & The Sunshine Band and "Theme from Sanford & Son" by Quincy Jones
*"Rang Dang" - "White Lines" by Grandmaster Flash and "Not to Touch the Earth" by the Doors

"She Ain't Got No Legs" originally contained a sample from The Cure, but frontman Robert Smith refused to grant permission, so the sample was replaced with live horn instrumentation.

"Coo Coo Ca Choo" originally contained a sample from "Sunshine of Your Love" by Cream, but guitarist Eric Clapton refused permission, so had to be replaced with a live guitar part (played by Lüpüs Thünder).

"One Way" contains a sample from "Theme From Sanford & Son," and initially, according to the band's website prior to 2004, resulted in a cease and desist from Quincy Jones (it was ultimately resolved - Jones received co-writing credit, and the song remains on the album).

The band has described the album as "the one that resulted in the most cease and desist orders in the band's history."

Trivia

*The song "You're Pretty When I'm Drunk" is made entirely by beatboxing.
*The first track is spoken by comedian Rip Taylor.
*Kids In America, on the album, is sung by someone completely unrelated to the band. This is Rob Vitale from the band Black Train Jack.Fact|date=June 2007
