Trivia[edit]

  • Two different edits of "Thorn in Your Eye" were used as the theme to WWF RAW. The first edit was used from 1997 to 1998, and the second edit (with the rap section) was used from 1998 to 2002.
  • An edit of "We're All Together Now" was used as the theme for WWF War Zone from 1997 to 1998, which was the title used for the second hour of RAW is WAR.
  • A loop of the opening riff of "We're All Together Now" was the bumper music for RAW from 1997 to 2002. (Played before and after commercial breaks and such.)
  • Many wrestling fans mistakenly believe that "Thorn in Your Eye" was performed by Anthrax; in reality, only Scott Ian contributed to the song.
  • An alternate version of the cover art was used on the German release of the album, which omits the wrestler Goldust, due to the concern over how the controversial character (specifically the cross dressing aspect of his gimmick) was being received in certain overseas markets at the time.[citation needed]
