* In 1979, the band were called for an interview with a youth-oriented British show called "Check It Out". The band were shown a clip of Oi! punk group the Angelic Upstarts guitarist Ray "Mond" Cowie trashing Lydon and PiL for "selling out". This disgruntled John. The interviewer then brings up that they were called the Angelic Upstarts and they started much like the Sex Pistols. Having just had Sid Vicious die and legal trouble with McLaren at the time, he wasn't too amused.
-->''I don't give two shits what they're called. It's simple. Don't tell me I've sold out, pal. I walked out. It WAS the only honest band in 2000 million years. I couldn't help the management being corrupt, I don't wanna talk about the past. I wanna go on."
After further provoking, John calls the interview a "comedy interrogation act", drops his microphone and leaves. Jah Wobble then erupts, gets out of his chair and goes on a long tirade which is entirely censored, and drops his microphone as well and also leaves.

* "Double Trouble" is a surprisingly funny, tongue-in-cheek take on inane domestic squabbles, inspired by an argument John Lydon had with his wife over plumbing. It's the opening track to ''What The World Needs Now...'', so somehow it's especially funny and unexpected that the first lyrics heard on the album are:
