* UsefulNotes/{{Detroit}}: Quietly implied to take place there, as stated in "Peacemaker" ("Oh I am a killjoy, from Detroit...") and "Murder City" (a play on it's most famous nickname, the Motor City).
* EpicRocking: The title track is just over 5 minutes long, as is "21 Guns".
* {{Expy}}: Christian and Gloria can be seen as either these or {{Suspiciously Similar Substitute}}s for [[Music/AmericanIdiot Jesus of Suburbia and Whatsername]], although there are shades of difference: Christian is smarter and more insane; Gloria is more world-weary.

Several of the themes looked at by [[AntiHero Christian]] (who is [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation most definitely *not*]] [[WesternTerrorists a terrorist]]) include [[CorruptChurch religion,]] [[AmericanPoliticalSystem politics,]] and [[BestServedCold vengeance,]] along with being heavily involved in his relationship with Gloria. He is very cynical about most large organizations, and feels he and Gloria must stand up for TheEveryman. Gloria, meanwhile, is trying to hold onto her original beliefs while trying to help Christian as well.

** Also, the line "My Generation is zero" that precedes "Never made it as a Working Class Hero" is a shout out to TheWho's "My Generation", which they covered on their ''Kerplunk'' album.
