Gaz Coombes told Uncut magazine March 2008 why this was chosen as the first single from the album: "Whenever I'm in the car with my daughter, Raya May, and play this, she always yells and screams 'bite me!' She knows it's me and loves it. After she did it for the first time, I rang up the record company and made sure it was the first single, because clearly, she knew it was the one. Too much subtlety passes children by!"
"The Night Chicago Died" was written and recorded by the British group Paper Lace. They talk about Al Capone in the song, but got a lot of details wrong - understandable since they wrote it based on gangster movies.
