"Among the Living" is based on the Stephen King novel The Stand. "The Walkin Dude" is Randall Flagg, the main villain in the book, and the beginning verse: "Disease! Disease! Spreading the disease!\With some help from Captain Tripps, He'll bring \the world down to its knees" refers to the virus that destroys most of the population in the novel.
The rerecorded version of "Among the Living" from The Greater Of Two Evils is used as a background to the Clerks 2 Teaser .
