The correct title of this song is Commemorative 9/11 T-Shirt, but evidently the band's record label was uncomfortable with the title. Vocalist Mike Vennart commented, "It's not actually got anything to do with 9/11. I was sold a T-shirt by the singer of the Cardiacs. On the label it read 'For ages 9-11', and when he sold it to me he said, 'oh, here's one of our commemorative 9/11 T-shirts', so I got thinking about what sort of person would wear a 9/11 T-shirt. Someone who's not really looking to the future." The song's time signature primarily alternates between 11/8 and 9/8, "so when we were naming the song, it was like, 'It's in 11, it's in 9, it's got to be 9/11'."
