Trivia[edit]

  • The vocals in "Some Dispute Over T-Shirt Sales" are similar to the one in the Ministry song "Jesus Built My Hotrod", possibly as an intentional reference as vocalist Gibby Haynes sung the vocals on that song. However, "Some Dispute" had appeared in the bands set lists as far back as 1990 under the name "Watlo", roughly a year before Haynes' vocals were recorded for "Jesus Built My Hotrod".
