The album would include two Wig Wam singles, being the Mel C cover "I Turn To You" and the anthemic "Hard To Be A Rock N' Roller". Several other popular tracks, including their Melodi Grand Prix 2004 song "Crazy Things" (which would be released in promo form), were also included on the album.

In January 2005, the album was renamed to "Hard to Be a Rock'n Roller". A radio-edit from the song "Hard To Be A Rock N' Roller" and a few videos were added. In March from the same year, this album was renamed another time to "Hard To Be A Rock N' Roller ... In Kiev!". The song "In my dreams" and the video "Hard To Be A Rock N' Roller" were added to the original track list from the album at that time.

The name of the album "667.. The Neighbour of the Beast" is a quote from a computer game named "Max Payne 2" as well as a twist on the Iron Maiden album "Number of the Beast". 667 also turns up as the license plate of the "guitar car" on their third album "Non Stop Rock'n Roll".
