i had an idea to do the Beach Boys and the Ramones as each other and mix them in mono, which i've never done before. this is possibly the worst idea i've ever had and some corpses have definitely rolled over in the grave during the process. while we weren't able to gather 30 other musicians to do a true wall of sound, i moved some things around to sort of recreate that sound for the BB side and kept the Ramones side simple. credits to Dustin Wright for showing me that video of Mike Love going "WEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" and partially inspiring this single.
