Harsher in Hindsight: A great number of songs after Steven Page's departure, most notably "Call and Answer", "Alcohol", "Bank Job" 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.
- From the same album, the first few lines of "Helicopters" wouldn't sound out of place in a song about the September 11th attack.
"This is where the helicopters came to take me away
This is where the children used to play
This is only half a mile away from the attack
This is where my life changed in a day, and then it changed back"
"This is where the allies bombed the school, they say by mistake"
- The line "Try to behave" in "Celebrity".
