  • The first polka medley to feature "Shave and a Haircut" during the outro.
  • The title is a play on Hooked on Classics, a series of compilation records featuring medleys of classical pieces rearranged with disco beats.
  • Unusually for a polka medley, this one was released as a single in Japan. The only other medley to receive a single release was "Polka Power!" from Running With Scissors, released only in Germany.
  • Al sings the original German version of "99 Red Balloons" (titled "99 Luftballons"), though he mixes up some words and syllables and some of it comes out as nonsense.
