Why nobody mentioned the similarities between The Prodigy's Smack My Bitch Up and Junkie XL's Dealing With The Rooster? I read everywhere that Junkie XL copied Smack My Bitch Up but Dealing With The Rooster was first released in March 1997, 3 months before Smack My Bitch Up was first released!

The bassline and the intro of "Smack My Bitch Up" is completely inspired from Jazz-artist Randy Weston's track "In Memory Of", first recorded in 1963. The track can be found on "HIGHLIFE, Music from the New African Nations". In my opinion this is yet another example of Howlett's extraordinary capability to blend musical styles and pay a little hommage to great music of the past. The infamous vocal sample "Smack My Bitch Up" was taken from the Utramagnetic MCs' "Give the Drummer Some".

There are two versions of No Man Army. The one on this record is the full-length instrumental version. I personally prefer the other version, which is called One Man Army and found on the Spawn movie soundtrack. It's a bit shorter and has additional vocals.
