Contrary to what some writers have said, the song title for this instrumental electronic interlude does not stand for the year 2009. According to Chris Martin it came from a slogan relating to the band's long-serving guitar tech - "Mat McGinn is awesome." The Coldplay singer admitted to Music Week: "I don't know why the f--- it got called that. It has nothing to do with anything… it stands for nothing; it's just a collection of letters."
"Here Comes Your Man" is the closest the Pixies came to a hit in America. It was rumored to be about a drug dealer, but Black Francis says it's just a story about some hobos who travel by train and die in an earthquake.
Geffen Records made history on June 27, 1994 when Aerosmith's "Head First" became the first major label song made available for exclusive digital download. Download speeds at the time were so slow it took around 75 minutes to download the track.
