  • This intro was used in live shows from 1998 onward to introduce the glockenspiel for "Shoehorn With Teeth". The "G-L-O-ckenspiel Intro" was also sometimes used for this purpose.
  • Later adapted and extended to become "Dan Vs. Cog".
  • It is possible that this was the precursor for the band intros song Graveyard, which was frequently performed throughout most of the late 2000s. Coincidentally both songs feature similar elements and chord progression.
