Background

Answer That and Stay Fashionable was recorded in Hayward, California at the studio of Andy Ernst in 1995. It was produced by Doug Sangalang, Tim Armstrong and Brett Reed.

The album features a parody of the film Reservoir Dogs. The tracks "Two of a Kind" and "Yürf Rendenmein" were re-recorded for AFI's second studio album Very Proud of Ya. The title of the track "Yürf Rendenmein" sounds like "your friend and mine" when pronounced slowly. The lyrics for "Cereal Wars" are credited to Toucan Sam for humor. It is stated in the album booklet that all of the tracks, excluding "Open Your Eyes", are copyrighted to Anthems For Insubordinates, the band's initialized name at the time.

The album originally included a hidden track, a cover of The Police's "Man in a Suitcase" (3:13). This track is not present on the 1997 Nitro re-release, with the reason for the exclusion being unknown. The 1997 Nitro edition contains a cover of The Circus Tent's "Open Your Eyes", originally released in an alternate mix on the Fly in the Ointment EP in 1995.

Nitro Records reissue and vinyl edition

The Nitro re-issue also omits the secret track from the end of "High School Football Hero". The vinyl edition replaces the hidden track with two bonus tracks.
