Frank Ocean was originally lined up to be the vocalist, but he was replaced by a capella singer Peter Hollens. Wilson explained to Vulture: "Frank Ocean didn't want to do the song. He wanted to do rap, so we canceled him."
The song also appears on Peter Hollens 2014 self-titled debut album.
The Flaming Lips' "Do You Realize??" was named in March 2009 the official Rock Song of Oklahoma. Four years later, Oklahoma's governor Mary Fallin pulled the tune as the state's official rock song in a move her office said had more to do with priorities than musical taste.
New Order took the title for "Blue Monday" from an illustration, which read "Goodbye Blue Monday," in the Kurt Vonnegut book Breakfast Of Champions. The image referred to the invention of the washing machine improving housewives' lives.
