This punky tale of alien abduction is named after the military base in the Nevada desert rumoured to host alien life. The song came from Yeah Yeah Yeah's Nick Zinner. Drummer Brian Chase described the guitarist to The Sun as "the hardcore alien guy" in the band who has visited Area 52 a few times.
Lily Allen wrote "Something's Not Right" for the soundtrack of the Peter Pan prequel, Pan. The song was inspired by the heartache that Allen experienced after suffering a miscarriage when she was six months pregnant with her first child by husband Sam Cooper in 2010.
