name, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., during an interview, "The name for us was just a way to identify our crazy new project that
had no limitations. People have no idea how we are going to sound, and so it gives them a reason to actually take some time
to listen to the music." The band even contacted Dale Earnhardt Jr. to make sure he knew that it had no intention of mocking
him, as it is actually a fan of the NASCAR driver.

to knock out the track "Simple Girl" on which Epstein had previously been working.
