* MyCountryTisOfTheeThatISting: The song "Hurricane" criticizes the imprisonment of Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, a boxer falsely accused of murder and tried by an all-white jury.

--> ''Couldn't help but make me feel ashamed to live in a land where justice is a game.''

Itís my work, heíd say, and I do it for pay''

* HistoricalHeroUpgrade: "Joey". Especially egregious as "Crazy" Joey Gallo had only been dead for a couple of years at the time. Dylan said that the song was meant to be an ironic revival of the folk song glorfication of outlaws, noting that the famous song "Jesse James" was a folk song classic despite being sentimental glorfication of the brutal UsefulNotes/JesseJames.
