The album featured the singles "Freewheel Burning", "Some Heads Are Gonna Roll" and "Love Bites".

The song "Eat Me Alive" was listed #3 on the Parents Music Resource Center's "Filthy Fifteen" which is a list of 15 songs the organization finds most objectionable. The co-founder Tipper Gore said that the song was about oral sex at gunpoint. In response to the allegations, the band recorded the song "Parental Guidance" on their next album Turbo.[1]
