Mogwai upset some of their fans with Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will by including some surprisingly poppy tunes. Bassist Dominic Aitchison told Uncut magazine February 2014: "I have absolutely no idea where these upbeat songs came from, but again, we don't really know the direction a record's taking until it's nearly done. I definitely raised my eyebrows when I first heard ' George Square Thatcher Death Party' because I thought it was too straight ahead and not like us, but it was fun to play and it sat well when we were sequencing the album. A lot of the long-term Mogwai fans absolutely hate that tune."
"Thinking About You" was the ninth track from Calvin Harris' 18 Months album to enter the UK singles Top 10. No other artist has obtained so many hits from one LP - Michael Jackson was the previous record holder with seven Top 10 tunes from both his Bad and Dangerous sets.
