Microwave This CD is the second album from Neil Cicierega's first musical project, Deporitaz. Some time after its release in June 2001 and the closure of MP3.com in 2003, there were seemingly no surviving copies of the full album in either a digital or physical format, although MP3s of some of the songs from the album were available. The official track listing was also forgotten (to the extent that even Neil himself forgot the exact order of all of the songs) and there was no certainty of what the album's cover looked like, leading the album to be considered "lost" for a number of years.

When the Deporitaz download directory was established, the tracklist was replaced with a list of songs that Neil confirmed might have appeared on it. In lieu of the original artwork, the cover for the Aaron Carter album Aaron's Party (Come Get It) was often used as a placeholder as an in-joke on the Lemon Demon forums.

In 2010, Jake, a user from the defunct Lemon Demon wiki WikiLemon, discovered a copy of the album in his closet and shared the original track listing, and described the album art, for which a mock-up was created: "The real cover includes a single color (dark blue) illustration of a flower with a confused face. Above the flower, centered, is written 'Trapezoid' in green followed by 'Microwave This CD' in blue, in an awkwardly stretched version of the font Copperplate."
