Some suggest the title of the album may actually be Radio Friendly, and that "George Clinton and Some Gangsters of Love" may be credited as the artist for the album.[8] The album has also been referred to as Any Percentage of You Is As Good as the Whole Pie, although that may refer to another P-Funk album to be released later.[9]

It features the last song recorded by the Red Hot Chili Peppers with guitarist John Frusciante.
