Trivia: Jimmy Eat World
  • One-Hit Wonder: "The Middle" was their only song to be a major pop crossover hit, but they have had many hits on the Alternative charts. However, "The Middle" is the one song everyone knows.
  • Shout-Out: "A Praise Chorus" references lyrics Tommy James and the Shondells, Madness, Mötley Crüe, They Might Be Giants, Bad Company, and The Promise Ring. The line "Come on Davey/Sing me something that I know" is also a shout-out to Davey von Bohlen, The Promise Ring's singer and close friend of the band.
  • Too Soon: After 9/11, their 2001 album Bleed American was re-released as a Self-Titled Album, while it's title track became "Salt Sweat Sugar". It was reissued with the original title seven years later.
