"27" was voted Single of the Week by US band Taproot in the 7 April 2001 issue of Kerrang! magazine. Bassist James Johnston has commented about this, saying:
I was getting ready to wash my car when Ben brought the magazine into the house. We couldn't believe it and started running around the house screaming. When I calmed down, I thought, "Well... better clean the car, then." We're from Kilmarnock and no-one gives a shit. It helps keep your feet on the ground.
