Singer and guitarist Dan Auerbach told The Sun March 27, 2008: "This song was one of the few created from the ground up in the studio (except for the lyrics which were older) with me, Pat (drummer Pat Carney) and Brian (producer, Danger Mouse) all throwing ideas out in real time."
This is featured in the video game Grand Theft Auto IV.
"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.
The Four Tops' "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)" was written by the Motown team of Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland and Eddie Holland. The phrase "Sugar pie, honey bunch" was something Dozier's grandfather used to say when he was a kid.
