This album marked the end of the band's relationship with producer and often referred to ``4th member`` Sam Taylor. The band cites creative differences for the split.
The bonus track ``Junior's Gone Wild`` (3:10) appears on some foreign releases of this album and on the soundtrack for the movie ``Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey``.
This album was the band's first album to be released exclusively on the Atlantic label.
There was a video made for the track ``Black Flag`` which saw moderate airplay on MTV and even on ``Beavis and Butthead``. There were actually 2 versions of this video made but only the one was released commercially. The second video featured darker imagery and a different general theme. The released video for Black Flag keeps the band's positive type video image as in the previous releases. The video was filmed on location in Dallas, TX and Fontana, CA.
The original title for the album was ``Since Hector Was a Pup``

Recording information:

Recorded & mixed at Rampart Studios, Houston, TX.
Mastered at Masterdisk, New York, NY.
