  • Giant Woman
  • Kill ’Em All
  • Losing a Shoe in the Struggle
  • Nice Shoes: Jeremy Popoff has pair of shiny black shoes with white flames on them called "hot rods." He even wore them at his wedding for his longtime girlfriend, and had his groomsmen (the other members of Lit) wear the same type of shoes, but with the colors reversed. They even got special attention in the video for Miserable.
