Now the Necessity is the big brother of Necessity Now. The mother of all Necessity was recorded 1994 in Düsseldorf at Klaus Dinger's studio, where a nearly nerve-wracked Andreas Reihse started the song and was sequently joined by Thomas Klein and Stefan Schneider, while Klaus Dinger and guitarist Dirk Flader went to the drugstore for liquors. This recording session is still unreleased.

In 1999 Triple R used Gain as a trailor for his Radioshow on now defunct Evosonic.
