Trivia: This track was one of many songs by different artists that tried to articulate the events of the 1992 riots in L.A. resulting from the Rodney King police beating verdict. The song also proved to be one of Sublime's most powerful anti-authority songs, especially when quoting the Snoop Doggy Dogg line "187 on a motherfuckin' cop."

This version of the song was recorded in Texas but didn't make the album. Included in the song are actual police scanner sounds from that night, recorded by Miguel off of his neighbor's police scanner.

"La Di Da Di" by Doug E. Fresh & Mc Ricky D is sampled. Recorded in Texas. Produced by Paul Leary of The Butthole Surfers.
