Track list error on reissue[edit]

The first two bonus tracks listed on the back cover of the reissue have "Hot Topic" then "Deceptacon". These songs are actually listed in the wrong order, as the song "Deceptacon" is on track 13, and "Hot Topic" is on track 14. This information is matched by the CDDB, but was fixed in the iTunes Store.
