* ShoutOut: Many of the songs on ''A Fever You Can't Sweat Out'' are named after lines from Creator/ChuckPalahniuk novels. "Time to Dance", in particular, is one big long reference to ''[[{{Literature/InvisibleMonsters}} Invisible Monsters]]''.
** If you haven't read ''[[{{Literature/InvisibleMonsters}} Invisible Monsters]]'', "Time to Dance" seems like a song about teen pregnancy, and some of the lines that reference the book seem to have little meaning in the scheme of the whole song (namely "hiding in estrogen and wearing aubergine dreams").
** "Build God, Then We'll Talk" has a shout out to ''Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic''.
** "Lying Is the Most Fun a Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off" and "But It's Better If You Do" are references to the movie {{Film/Closer}}- spoken in the same breath, no less.
** "The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide Is Press Coverage" comes from Palahniuk's ''[[{{Literature/Survivor}} Survivor]]''
** "London Beckoned Songs About Money Written by Machines" has a bridge which references lines from Palahnuik's ''Diary'' ("just for the record, the weather today..." is a reference to a line the main character often says), and the title references the Douglas Coupland Novel ''Shampoo Planet''("Torrid tunage from London beckoned- songs about money written by machines.")
*** This one may be unintentional, but the title also references Music/PinkFloyd three times; the band is English, and they have songs titled "Money" and "Welcome to the Machine".
** "I Write Sins Not Tragedies" also refers to ''Shampoo Planet'' ("I am writing a list of tragic character flaws on my dollar bills with a felt pen. I am thinking of the people in my universe and distilling for each of these people the one flaw in their character that will be their downfall--the flaw that will be their undoing. What I write are not sins; I write tragedies.")
