* {{Anvilicious}}: Um, OK, censorship bad?
* BrokenBase: It got real hard to be a Styx fan about a month after this album came out. To be fair, the rise of new wave displaced the other arena rock bands too (REO Speedwagon, Journey, etc.). But those bands didn't do it to themselves with a single album.
* HilariousInHindsight: The protagonist's name, Robert Orrin Charles Kilroy ([[FunWithAcronyms "ROCK"]]), who disguises himself as a robot. Isn't there a [[VideoGame/MegaManClassic certain famous robot who's name is also "Rock"?]]. ANd wasn't there a [[Music/TheProtomen rock opera]] written about said robot, with a fascist government who uses robots to enforce it's will? Not saying that there's a connection, but it was too coincidental to not point out.
* LargeHam: James Young during 'Heavy Metal Poisoning' during the concerts. Might even qualify as HamAndCheese.
