Allusions and samples[edit]

  • "5 AM Afterparty" is an irate telephone voice message from KMFDM's Lucia Cifarelli in response to her receiving numerous anonymous prank calls.
  • "Get Your Body Beat" differs on the album from the single version; although the single version is marked as "album version" on the single, it is not.
  • "Fuck That Shit" contains audio excerpt from Dennis Hopper as Frank Booth from the 1986 movie Blue Velvet. The repeating phrase spoken by Hopper, "fuck that shit" is used as the song's main hook.
  • "Shut Up and Swallow" contains audio excerpt from the film The Thirteenth Floor (1999).
  • "Are You Connected" contains samples from the film Suicide Circle.
  • "Give Head if You Got It" contains audio excerpt of the cheerleader-like chant from the film The Hot Chick.
  • All Your Bass Belongs to Us" is a play on the famous phrase "All your base are belong to us".
  • "God Warrior" contains audio exceprt from an episode of reality show Trading Spouses.
  • Jack Torrance is a reference to the main character of Stephen King's The Shining.
  • Both "HAL 9000" and "Brain Bypass" use the computer speech from Stanley Kubrick's 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Music videos[edit]

Four music videos were made to promote the album:

  • "Get Your Body Beat" was directed by Agata Alexander and uses scenes from the biopunk film The Gene Generation by the director Pearry Reginald Teo.
  • "Electrohead": The band posted a bulletin on their website and Myspace, "We will be shooting a video for "Electrohead" on Friday February 2, in Los Angeles, at Das Bunker. If you want to be a part of the video, dress hot or "crazy", and show up early. We expect to see all of the So Cal CC Army out for this. Doors open at 10pm." However, after reviewing the material shot during the performance, the footage was too dark to use because of the venue's poor lighting. The band then opted to re-shoot the live video portion in North Carolina. "Electrohead" was officially released on June 10, 2007, via MySpace video.
  • "Deathbed" was released on May 7, 2007. LaPlegua posted the band's new video on his livejournal and on YouTube. This time the video was filmed and directed by LaPlegua with help from Agata Alexander who also directed the "Get Your Body Beat" video.
  • "Fuck That Shit": The video was animated and directed entirely by Brandon Duncan of corporatedemon.com. After viewing Duncan's online portfolio, LaPlegua quickly asked Duncan to animate the video. The video was initially posted through Video on YouTube on the Combichrist MySpace page, but a higher quality version has since been posted.
