For Certain Because is the fifth UK album by the Hollies and their second released in 1966.[4][5] It was the first Hollies album in which all the songs were written by members Allan Clarke, Graham Nash, and Tony Hicks, and the first on which they did not use the songwriting pseudonym "L. Ransford" (or just "Ransford"). It was also the first Hollies album recorded with new bassist Bernie Calvert replacing Eric Haydock.

Most current CD releases of this album use the original UK album title and artwork, but a recent US CD reissue series instead uses the US title and artwork, described below.[6]

For Certain Because was retitled Stop! Stop! Stop! for the US and Canadian markets and issued with a different, full-color cover image of the group in the US. This was also the fifth Hollies album released in the US and Canada, although the third released in 1966. It was the first Hollies album on which the track listing for the UK version remained unchanged for the US and the Canadian versions; that would not happen again until the 1970s. In addition, other markets also used the title Stop! Stop! Stop! when issuing or reissuing this album -- including the UK, which retitled this album as Stop! Stop! Stop! for a 1971 budget-line reissue.[7] In 1983, Liberty Records in the US reissued this album as Pay You Back With Interest without the tracks "Stop! Stop! Stop!" and "High Classed".

Stop! Stop! Stop! was the Hollies' last new album for Imperial Records in the US and for Capitol Records in Canada and would be followed by a greatest hits album on those labels. The Hollies' next album of originals, Evolution, would be released in the US and Canada on Epic Records while remaining on Parlophone/EMI in the UK and would revert to having a different track lineup between the US/Canadian and UK versions.
