I just listened to this album the other day and I always am struck by the lyrics of Jesus etc.
The first time I heard that song was in the early spring of '02 and the DJ on WFNX (or WBCN) in Boston introduced the song as having very prophetic lyrics considering it was recorded long before 9/11.
My girlfiend and I were dumbstruck.
Needless to day, inthe past few years YHF has become one of my favorite albums, and Wilco one of my favorit e bands, even though i do get turned off by Jeff Tweedy's muffled and indirect socialism that creeps in here and there.
There are serious synchonicities involving this album that cannot be denied: the original release date, the cover and of course the lyrics to 3 or 4 of the songs.
However, I don't think Heavy Metal Drummer carries any portents of Doom along with it, so maybe they are just coincidences.
