These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Barenaked Ladies
Dude, Not Funny!: The line "Better chance you're gonna bite it at the mall" in the upbeat and lighthearted song "Odds Are", released less than a year after the Toronto mall shooting in summer 2012.
Ear Worm: "It's been...one week since you looked at me!"
Harsher in Hindsight: A great number of songs after Steven Page's departure, most notably "Call and Answer", "Alcohol", and "War on Drugs".
"Sell, Sell, Sell", an already politically charged song, becomes this after 9/11 and the ensuing War on Terror.
Especially with the line about Iraq and Saddam Hussein.
