* RefrainFromAssuming: Some people, especially those who don't speak English that well, frequent misinterpret "No Woman, No Cry" as a MisogynySong, thinking it means that without women there would be no reason to cry. A lot of stupid men find this incredibly funny, but the last laugh is actually on them, because the song is simply about a man telling a woman not to cry, despite their misery.


The album was listed at nr. #181 in Magazine/RollingStone's [[Music/RollingStone500GreatestAlbumsOfAllTime 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time]].
