* The album was originally planned to be named "Heavy Flow", but was changed to "Hefty Fine" because on the scavenger hunt episode of Viva La Bam where Jimmy Pop had to bail out Evil Jared for $10,000 when Dakota Films refused to pay for it. Another story, given by guitarist Lupus Thunder, was that because Moby had a song called "Heavy Flow," the band refused to use it (both Jimmy Pop and Lupus have declared dislike for Moby in the past). E-mails between Jimmy Pop and Lupus lead to the former using the phrase "have to pay a hefty fine" in a joke both found amusing, and suggesting it for the title.
* The album is currently the second-lowest overall music score on Metacritic, with an average score of (28/100). It leads Kevin Federline's debut, Playing With Fire, which received (15/100).
* Jimmy Pop wrote the song "No Hard Feelings" about one of his ex-girlfriends (allegedly, the same ex-girlfriend from "Kiss Me Where It Smells Funny" and "Three Point One Four"), so the song is from a girl's perspective.
* "Something Diabolical" has vocals from Finnish "Love Metal" band HIM's lead singer, Ville Valo, who makes reference to the band in the lyric "Tonight belongs to H.I.M.".
* Hidden track is said by Bam Margera of CKY/Jackass/Viva La Bam fame. He can also be seen in the video for "Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo" driving a car shaped like a banana and despite popular belief, he did not direct the video. RockHard Films director Marc Klasfeld directed the video.
*"Hefty Fine" is the only album with drummer Willie the New Guy, as he left the band early into 2006. He has been replaced by Adam Perry, nicknamed "The Yin." It is assumed that "The Yin" will play drums on the next album.
*Sometime in 2006, Bloodhound Gang launched a campaign to have the Pennsylvania state anthem changed to their song, "Pennsylvania". The outcome is unknown.
*D.J. Q-Ball and Lupus have confirmed that there is a new album coming within two years of "Hefty Fine's" release. Lupus has also stated that their label was pushing them to release the album sooner ("Hefty Fine" was released six years after "Hooray For Boobies"; a period that had adverse effects on the band's fanbase). Q-Ball commented (in the same interview) that four or five of the tracks were close to, if not actually, finished. "Larried" is the only definite song for this album, having been intended for "Hefty Fine." The song was unable to make the cut for the album, but was finished afterwards. It is said that Jimmy Pop deliberately keeps the song titles secret from the band.
*A follow-up single (and its accompanying video) entitled 'Screwing You On The Beach At Night' was released in 2007. Another single, titled 'Smash' will be released in August. Bam Margera may shoot a video for 'Smash'
*The cover depicts a large, naked Caucasian man, whose genitals are obscured.
*The line "Eminem's gotta cuss in his raps to sell records, well me too, so fuck Will Smith!" from the album's opening track "Strictly For The Tardcore" is a reference to Eminem's song The Real Slim Shady - which features the line "Will Smith don't gotta cuss in his raps to sell his records; well I do, so fuck him and fuck you too!"
*On a sticker at the CD cover of the German release the song "Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo" is misspelled as "Foxtrot Charlie Uniform Kilo".
