Die Band kommentiert ihre Songauswahl folgendermaßen:

Fat Mike: „When I think of divas (the new Gimmes album theme) I think of Britney Spears, Mariah Carey, or Beyoncé, but their songs all suck. We picked „Straight Up“ by Paula Abdul, not because she’s that much of a diva, but because it’s a great song.“

Chris Shiflett: „If I recall correctly, ‚Straight Up‘ was one of the last tunes we worked on for the new Gimmes record. I think it was Spike [Slawson]’s idea. He has an app on his phone that transposes songs into whatever key you want, so once we figured out where it was gonna work for his vocal, we banged it out quickly. Just like all our tunes, Spike’s vocal is the magic sauce that makes it good.“

Spike Slawson: „I just kept imagining Arsenio Hall’s prodigious index finger on my sweet spot and the rest took care of itself.“
