* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: In the 1992 movie, Curley's wife is [[AdaptationalHeroism far more sympathetic than in the book]] - specifically, the scene in which she crosses the MoralEventHorizon by threatening to have Crooks lynched is omitted. The director wanted her depicted more as a "sad angel" rather than the vampish character she appeared to be in the novel.

Added DiffLines:

* WinBackTheCrowd: Their post-Austin songs have been well-received for toning the NuMetal down to a more manageable level a la ''Restoring Force'' and bringing back more prominent {{Metalcore}} elements, making their music recognizable as their own again as opposed to sounding completely different.

Added DiffLines:

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: The reason Jerry gave in an interview as to why he was only in the band for a year. Prior to joining the band he was under an exclusive contract with a different record label and they would not let him make any arrangements to terminate it.

--> [[MadonnaWhoreComplex She was told over and over that she must remain a virgin because that was the only way she could get a husband]] ... She only had that one thing to sell and she knew it. [[HiddenDepths She is a nice, kind girl and not a floozy]]. No man has ever considered her as anything except a girl to try to make ... As to her actual sex life -- she has had none except with Curley and there [[SexlessMarriage has probably been no consummation]] there since [[ItsAllAboutMe Curley would not consider her gratification]] and would probably be suspicious if she had any.

** Curley's wife, to an extent. She's married to a badly-tempered man who is extremely possessive of her, and keeps her as a trophy wife. She's obviously lonely, but all the workers are too scared of her husband to speak with her. She later tries to chat up Lennie, [[spoiler:which ends with her panicking when he won't stop stroking her hair and, when she starts to scream, him killing her by accident.]]

* HarsherInHindsight: "Pain" is a song entirely made of Austin's anger at the constant pain Marfan syndrome causes him. A few months after it was released Austin had to leave the band for good after doctors told him that due to his health issues, if he kept screaming he'd be causing himself permanent spine and nervous system damage.

* UnfortunateImplications: The ending seems to suggest that mentally ill people need to be put down, not just for their own safety, but for society's benefit as well. Becomes HarsherInHindsight considering the ''extremely'' disrespectful and insensitive way society treats the mentally ill to this day (i.e.: the "Triggered" joke).
