Trivia and media
On the cover of the EP is a distorted and rearranged image of the band's drummer, Dominic Howard.
A slightly different image appears in the American film 12 Monkeys. Bruce Willis is seen tearing down Muse posters in Philadelphia in 1996, revealing the titular symbol spraypainted in red on the building's wall; however, the Vortex (the location of the show on the poster) is a club in London.
