** The music video for "Rabid Child," which was never shown publicly (outside of a brief clip) and the Johns won't even discuss. No one is exactly sure why, as it seemingly consists of little more than Flans lip-synching the song while standing in his apartment.

Little about these songs is known, except that Dawn Divine was to feature Mike Doughty. Of course, knowing TMBG, there's still a good chance they'll be released someday...
*** "Prepare" has been released through Dial-A-Song. As of October 2015, none of the others have been seen.

*** Flansburgh's then-girlfriend (who sang on "Boat Of Car") was supposed to appear on "The Guitar (The Lion Sleeps Tonight)," but wasn't available for the recording, so instead they got Laura Cantrell.

** Music/ElvisCostello was apparently supposed to produce ''Apollo 18'' at an early stage. The Johns disapproved due to thinking they'd earn the chance to produce it themselves and to the tension that would occur from working with a hero of theirs.
