Notes

At least one confirmed source for the single is that it was given away in promotional pre-release media parties in early June 1995. It is therefore highly possible (especially given the addition of the postcard described below) that this was in fact the very first Foo Fighters release, prior to the Exhausted promo 12 inch record.

Also available at these events were unique pre-release promotional postcards for the new band with a version of the single artwork on the front, and a background description of the origin and meaning of the band's name on the back.

The postcard contained the original band lineup printed at the bottom, along with the official single release date of July 4TH (1995 - American Independence day).

This July release date has been added after the card was originally printed, and the original printed release date has been overprinted in black. That date can be made out to have been JUNE 26TH.

As a result of the blackout used, genuine copies have a section of unique black markings on the front underneath the bottom right of the big UFO which has transferred from the blackout ink used on the back of the above copy when they were stacked.

Very few copies of the additional postcard are known to still exist.
