Not only does Asher Roth share the same shade of melanin with Eminem, but also his speedy, precise rapping style have caused many to compare him with his fellow Caucasian artist. On this song Roth addresses the comparisons. He told Complex magazine: "Him and I are different artists. I think the music's going to portray that as time goes on. It's cool to be compared to Em, but he's one of the number one selling artists of all time. I'd rather be compared to him than pretty much anybody else. I think content and everything we rap about is completely different. We're different artists. We just happened to be under the same genre."
Fall Out Boy's "The Kids Aren't Alright" song title is not a reference to The Offspring's 1998 single of the same name. It actually alludes to The Who's 1979 rockumentary film called The Kids Are Alright.
