** For a band whose music tackles such heavy, powerful themes, they rarely ever curse. As such, any instance where they use foul language certainly counts as a PrecisionFStrike. For example, in "The Great Die-Off", the chorus says "We want it all and we want it now.". The third time it's said, however, it's replaced by a more powerful "We want the motherfucking world and we want it now".

The band has undergone something of a style shift from their first album to their more recent works starting with ''Appeal To Reason'' - from straight PunkRock to a more mainstream sound, although the social commentary in the lyrics has always remained intact. Opinion is divided on which, if any, is the better sound.
