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.
Broken Base: Sort of a minor and strange version. When they released the pro-union song "Take 'Em Down", some fans said they didn't like the band's new "political direction". Other fans however, not only embraced the song but let the angry fans go.
Given how the band's covered "Which Side Are You On?" and sung stuff like "Worker's Song" on the past albums, that's a hell of a time to bring it up.
Which is part of the reason why it's a strange case.
Covered Up: "I'm Shipping Up to Boston" and "Gonna Be A Blackout Tonight" are Woody Guthrie songs. Both are interesting examples of this because Guthrie never recorded either song! (he left behind dozens of unrecorded songs, and many of them had already appeared on Wilco and Billy Bragg's Mermaid Avenue albums in the early 2000's)
Crowning Music of Awesome: Several, including - but not limited to - "Flannigan's Ball", "Echoes on 'A' Street", "God Willing", and, of course, "I'm Shipping up to Boston".
Ear Worm: Echoes on 'A' Street has the elongated line, "Shannon, i'm comming hooooooooooooooooooooooooooooome!" It is sang five times during the song.
The chorus of "God Willing"
"I'M SHIPPING UP TO BOSTON!" Especially that intro.
Face of the Band: Ken Casey, the bassist. Sort of odd, but considering he's the sole original member...
