In a statement about the album, NOFX and Fat Wreck Chords' Fat Mike wrote: "What I wanted to show on this record is how amazing Tony's songs are. You can tell a song is great when it can be done in any style and it's still great. That's what this comp is about. All the bands are doing No Use For A Name songs or Tony Sly songs with their own take. It's a real tribute to his songwriting... These bands were his closest friends and his favourite bands. I thank all of them for stepping up and showing their love and respect to Tony and his family."
