Notes
  • "Keyser Soze" samples the alien-contacting theme from the 1977 film Close Encounters of the Third Kind, also known as the noise programmed to unlock a door in the 1979 James Bond film Moonraker. When played backwards, the track contains the line "Use your dildo"
  • "Faster Harder Scooter" samples the 1995 song "Come On" by Axis.
  • "Well Done, Peter" samples the 1999 song "Embargo!" by Embargo.
  • "Fuck The Millennium" samples "The Passion" by Technohead. The title of the track comes from a song by the same name by The KLF, released in 1997 under the pseudonym 2K. Likewise, "Back to the Heavyweight JAMs" is a refrain from The KLF's work. The version of the song released as a single contains a melody from Norman Petty song "Wheels", first recorded by The String-a-longs in 1961.
  • "The Revolution" samples the 1999 song "Who Do I Care" by Hermen.
  • "The Learning Process" samples the 1995 song "Technocat" by Tom Wilson.
  • "Main Floor" samples the song "Madagascar" by Art of Trance, taken from the 1999 album Voice Of Earth.
  • "Kashmir" samples the song "Living on the Ceiling" by the British synthpop band Blancmange, taken from the 1982 album Happy Families and "Turkish Bazar" by Emmanuel Top.
