Songfacts®:

  • This was used in the movie Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back. The music video featured Jay and Silent Bob as well.
  • This song makes fun of the music scene at the time. Particularly those who sang about how tough their lives were, when in reality they made up a background story for their songs.
  • The album cover for this was just showing the CD, with the words "Rip if Off" on it. It is the same concept as System of a Down's Steal This Album! Stroke 9's album came out first, but was not nearly as successful. >>
