Frontman Matt Healy described his lyrics for The 1975's self-titled debut LP to The Guardian as "a genuine kind of diary." He added: "And that's the thing I'm really proud of in this album – it's me figuring myself out. Even the line in Heart Out – 'Your obsession with rocks and brown. And fu--ing the whole town' … I'm always talking about me, really."
Kid Rock's "All Summer Long" is a mashup of "Werewolves Of London" and "Sweet Home Alabama." The album it came from was released in October, 2007, but they held off until summer, 2008 for a more seasonable release.
