** This song in particular was so disturbing that an urban legend was created about the guitars that sporadically punctuate the song. Depending on who's telling the story, the screeches are attributed to audio samples that had been distorted beyond immediate recognition of either of one of the Moors murders taking place or a woman/a child being raped that the band had obtained from a police station/a courthouse through fraudulent means or via LoopholeAbuse. The fact that Genesis kept the sources of the samples in TG's discography a tightly guarded secret didn't help matters.

* "Very Friendly," off The First Annual Report. It's like Slug Bait, but with one of the Moors killings. It spares not even the most mundane or irrelevant of details, and it lasts about 18 minutes. Genesis sounds more or less detached, but gets more enthusiastic as s/he carries on, culminating in h/er [[spoiler:graphically impersonating Evan Edwards.]]

* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1X9ygjkIPf8 Zyklon B Zombie.]]" It's hard to make out the lyrics (which are, unsurprisingly, about a concentration camp prisoner being led into a gas chamber), but the droning, muted vocals and subject matter are bad enough.

* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECBBAz1e5Dk Persuasion.]]" Built around a tape of a desperately pleading woman, with jarring guitar, two-note bass, and monotonous vocals, the song is essentially about emotionally abusing a woman to get her to shed her clothes.

* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojO3XvBIT0Y Slug Bait]]", in which Genesis gives a detailed first-person description of a Mau Mau uprising atrocity.

* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPrTUC7BDn4 Hamburger Lady,]]" which combines cold, mechanical electronics and thoroughly effects-fed vocals, with lyrics taken from a medical letter involving a severe burn-ward victim.

* After finding out [[JoyDivision Ian Curtis]] liked it, "Weeping" becomes very spooky to listen to.
