Frenzal Rhomb have said many times that they will not play songs from Shut Your Mouth during shows, leading to some fans speculating that Lindsay sold the rights to play the songs live for a half eaten salad pita and a warm glass of sav blanc.

This version of the album came in a stickered sleeve and with a multimedia component with a 'My City Of Sydney' film clip (not available anywhere else) and an interview with the band members. There is a hidden song on Track 0, "Baby Won't You Hold Me In Your Arm". A longer version of this song later appeared on the For the Term of Their Unnatural Lives compilation record.

The version of "Everything's Fucked" on this release has the term "racist cunt" censored and replaced with animal noises.
