** 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.

** The line "Last one born and the first one to run" is a shout-out to Music/BruceSpringsteen, and "The Static Age" also musically references "Born To Run"'s iconic intro and chromatic solo.

%%commented out due to ZeroContextExample * BookEnds: Pulled off excellently.Both the opening songs are echoed in the last tracks: "Song Of The Century" is replicated in the intro to "American Eulogy", and "See the Light" revolves around the guitar intro to "21st Century Breakdown".



* RebelliousSpirit

* RebelliousSpiritRebelliousSpirit: The narrator is clearly one of those.

-->Sing us the song of the century\\
That sings like American eulogy\\
The dawn of my love and conspiracy\\
Of forgotten hope and the class of 13\\
Tell me a story into that goodnight\\
Sing us a song for me
