Kim Deal was concerned that this track would bring to mind the American math rock band Battles. She told Rolling Stone magazine: "I'm like, oh my God, everybody thinks we're going to try to bite off this Battles thing. But it's from a lyric."
Deal explained to Uncut magazine February 2008 why the album only lasts 36 minutes: "There's 13 songs. It's about 36 minutes long. I know that's kinda short, but I couldn't think of another song."
