The chorus and backing beat of "The Nosebleed Section" are sampled from the song "The People in the Front Row" sung by Melanie Safka. Pieces of this song are continually inserted into "The Nosebleed Section".
You know, I looked around for faces I'd know,
I fell in love with the people in the front row, oh ho...
...Put me here, and I'm all yours,
It's not for the money and it's not for the applause, no.
The song includes lyrics from the Powderfinger song "These Days", sung in tune by the band rather than sampled.
