The film:

  • Nausea Fuel: Having graphic sex with a mangled and mutilated corpse, which has been cut open, leaving the insides completely exposed.
  • Paranoia Fuel: What could happen to your remains behind closed doors?

The series:

  • Nightmare Fuel: "Population Zero" initially covers the first hours, days, weeks, and months following humanity's disappearance, leading to many interesting yet still horrifying sights that the dueling show Life After People lacks (such as empty cars crashing into each other worldwide, airplanes falling down on earth and power going out in the span of hours if not minutes and so on), but the episode gets really eerie after the next Ice Age hits, turning into a Cosmic Horror Story where the narrator impresses us of mankind's insignificance on the cosmic timescale.

The Rolling Stones album:

  • Growing the Beard: Many fans and critics will cite this as the first truly great Stones album, as it was the first to feature all original material and highlights Brian Jones' musical experimentalism.
  • Values Dissonance: "Under My Thumb", where the narrator boasts about controlling his girlfriend.
  • Values Resonance: "Mother's Little Helper", as prescription drug abuse is still a major social problem.
