Of the album's title Casablancas says, "Tyrannyhas come in many forms throughout history. Now, the good of business isput above anything else, as corporations have become the new rulingbody. Most decisions seem to be made like ones of a medieval king:whatever makes profit while ignoring and repressing the truth aboutwhatever suffering it may cause (like pop music, for that matter)."
