YMMV: Big Black

  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The quote "The future belongs to the analog loyalists. Fuck digital." on the back cover of Songs About Fucking. Steve Albini installed a Pro Tools rig in his recording studio which, while he never uses and is only there for the artists' use, makes this quote amusing looking back.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Many of their songs. It becomes worse when you learn that many of these were based on actual events.
    • The cover of the limited edition version of the Headache EP.
    • Steve Albini's pantomime during concert performances of "Jordan, Minnesota."
      • Bandmate Santiago Durango: "We would get to a point in the song where we'd hit this really creepy noise, prolonged so it would just hang in the air, discordant so you would get a creepy feeling. And Steve would start pretending that he was one of the kids being raped, but I mean really intensely. And just impeccable timing. It was actually very disturbing to watch... It would really get people unsettled."
