Although the band told their record company that "Siogo" was an Indian word for "closeness" or "togetherness", it is actually an acronym for "Suck It Or Get Out". According to guitarist Charlie Hargrett, it was coined by the band's road crew and put up as a sign in the front lounge of their tour bus during previous tours.[2]

"Heart's Grown Cold" is a cover and originally appeared on the 1980 Nazareth album Malice In Wonderland.
