  • An instrumental, this features Breeders guitarist Kelley Deal's sewing machine miked through a Marshall amp. Vocalist Kim Deal explained to Mojo magazine May 2013: "When Kelley came to the studio, she brought her sewing machine with her. There's a lot of dead time in the studio, and she'd spend that time working on this quilt for my mom. So I'd listen to her sewing, and I thought, We should mike that up."
  • The Prodigy sampled the song's looped wah-wah riff on their smash hit single "Firestarter." Kim Deal was credited as a co-writer and the resulting royalties were considerable.
  • The Breeders did not release another album for 8 years, when they came out with Title TK.
