TriviaEdit

  • It is unclear why the track "Teeth the Size of Piano Keys" is missing from the reissue. The number of bonus tracks is six, despite the given number of seven new tracks. In the DVD section of this reissue, there is an appearance by the Trailer Park Boys at the Chiodos Madison Square Garden performance, and footage of them shown backstage with the band. There are also live clips of the band at various shows, with the songs "A Letter from Janelle" and "Lexington. (Joey Pea-Pot with a Monkey Face)" played over the performances. Also on the reissue the spoken words at the end of "The Undertakers Thirst for Revenge Is Unquenchable (The Final Battle)" are missing for no apparent reason.
  • "Is It Progression If a Cannibal Uses a Fork?" is a misquote of Stanislaw Jerzy Lec ("Is it progress if a cannibal uses knife and fork?")
  • "Lexington. (Joey Pea-Pot with a Monkey Face)" is a combination of the name of Pat McManaman's first dog and Lexington, Kentucky, where the song was recorded.
  • "Bulls Make Money, Bears Make Money, Pigs Get Slaughtered" is phrase commonly said by Mad Money host Jim Cramer.
  • "A Letter from Janelle" is a letter that was sent to Craig Owens by a friend, Nicole Rork. The lyrics are of the pieces that Craig feels comfortable sharing, as the letter, which he reviews in times of distress, still means a great deal to him.
  • The title "I Didn't Say I Was Powerful, I Said I Was a Wizard" was said by Chiodos' guitar technician while he was high.
  • The title "Teeth the Size of Piano Keys" is taken from Slaughterhouse 5 by Kurt Vonnegut.
  • The title "If I Cut My Hair, Hawaii Will Sink" was named when Matt Goddard drunkenly spoke the words to the other band members.
  • The title "Intensity in Ten Cities" is a quote from Mike Myers' character Wayne Campbell in the movie Wayne's World, alluding to the live album by Ted Nugent.
  • The song "The Undertaker's Thirst for Revenge is Unquenchable (The Final Battle)" pays homage to how the band used to watch wrestling when they were young.
  • The title "Two Birds Stoned at Once" comes from an episode of Trailer Park Boys, where Ricky mistakenly says it rather than "two birds with one stone."
