* HarsherInHindsight: The defenses of the antagonist's actions in "Only a Lad" were later used in the [[RealitySubtext real-life trial]] of [[http://rt.com/usa/rich-teen-probation-killing-friends-086/ Ethan Couch]], a teenager who was given a relatively tame punishment for killing four people in a drunk driving accident after a judge ruled his actions the result of his privileged lifestyle.

* OldShame: Danny Elfman has gone on record as saying that recording the video for "Weird Science" was quite an ordeal. In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EeFZtXPUCxs an interview]], he pretty much disavows his involvement with it.
-->Interviewer: Was is miserable shooting it?
-->Danny: Yeah, and I deserved it...it's the one video that I did that I had nothing to do with.


* ValuesResonance: As much as Danny Elfman says he's not proud of writing "Capitalism," one could easily swap "middle class socialist brat" with [[Website/{{Tumblr}} "social justice warrior"]] and the whole thing would become a lot more timely.
