"Animal (Fuck Like a Beast)" was intended to be on the original version of the album, but was removed due to record company pressure following the controversy the song had created at the time.

The album was originally supposed to be called Winged Assassins.

The LP has engraved onto it near the label "We Are Sexual Perverts".

Songs added to the 1997 CD reissue:
1. Animal (Fuck Like a Beast) (03:07)
12. Show No Mercy (03:48)
13. Paint It Black (Rolling Stones cover) (03:27)

(1997 reissue tracks by Blackie Lawless except track 13 (Rolling Stones cover))

Videos were shot for "I Waana Be Somebody" and "L.O.V.E. Machine"
