The song "LET THEM MOVE" is one of the few original songs by composer and former DDR sound producer Naoki Maeda to not be revived after its inclusion in 4th Mix. This is due to him feeling ashamed by the song. When asked in an interview on what his favorite memory of working on the Dance Dance Revolution Series was, he jokingly answered "LET THEM MOVE" before pretending to self-destruct..

The distaste towards this song also carried over to Jason Enos, manager of Dance Dance Revolution's American Console Titles. He attempted to lobby the song's exclusion from Dance Dance Revolution Konamix to no avail:

"[When] they wanted to put Let Them Move on Konamix, oh my gosh, I just went nuts. I sent the poll results. I was like, "Look. See the poll results? Let Them Move? Rank: Zero! Bottom of the list! Please do not include!" I just told them to please not include this song in there. Everyone hates this song. Do not put it in there. They wanted to put it in for the training, because it's a real easy song, and since it was going to be in training, they thought it would have been stupid not to make it a selectable song. Okay, well I can understand that, but I told them, "Can we just get something else besides that song?" But no, they kinda like that song. No one else likes it though. That song, I'm not very pleased about. Then again, I don't [want] any people ever selecting that song in the public".

Within the game's data are unused graphics for the song "Xanadu", which would not appear until Dance Dance Revolution 3rd Mix. These graphics are different to the ones seen in Dance Dance Revolution 3rd Mix, the most noticeable being the song's title being spelt as "Xanado".
The song "Make A Jam!" appears to have several references to Konami. The Konami logo is hidden in the background and the 'Walking Konami logo' jingle can be heard throughout the song.
