Q. The shoot for the music video on January 26, 2000, caused the doors of the New York Stock Exchange to be closed. In fact the Stock Exchange locked its doors mid-day in response to fears of crowds gathering to watch the filming. This was not recorded as a closure as trading on the exchange floor continued uninterrupted. "We decided to shoot this video in the belly of the beast", said XXX , who was detained by police for an hour and threatened with arrest during the shooting of the video, despite the band having a federal permit to perform. The band was escorted from the site by security, after band members attempted to gain entry into the Exchange.

Q. The original idea for the band's name was "Civilian", but it was dropped when members found out that it was already taken.After the name was announced, it emerged that it was already being used by an unsigned band from Liverpool . The two bands worked out a settlement, involving $30,000 in a deal that allowed each band to use the name. To avoid confusion, the Liverpool band would rename themselves The Most Terrifying Thing. The name was mocked by critics due to its uninspired nature,, and was regarded as one of the worst in contemporary rock music, even of all time. Pitchfork Media called it the "most asinine bandname of the year", while Spin magazine chided it as "one of the dumbest band names in recent rock history". Which band??
