Notes:

"When the revelation (revolution) comes" does appear in certain versions of "When the Saints go marching in" but no use of that song is included here except the intro from the Inkspots in Track 11. Track 5 ('crass de burgh') fuses "Bloody Revolution" by Crass with "The Revolution" by Chris de Burgh. Track 6 is built around a rare Hendrix use of the word and Tracks 7-9 contains solely POP uses (Spice Girls, Kylie Minogue, Transvision Vamp, Simply Red, 4 Non Blondes, Rod Stewart, The Police, Aztec Camera, Belinda Carlisle, Beverley Craven, Duran Duran, Earth Wind & Fire and Sigue Sigue Sputnik) layered over Ennio Morricone's "Once upon a time ... the revolution".

Track 10 uses 130 revolutions not used before day 7. Track 11 slows down The Inkspots' 'Saints go marching in' over Robert Wyatt. Track 12 grinds the gonads to a halt. Track 13 was mixed live in LIPA and features Bryan Biggs' suggestions and contributions: Dylan, Quicksilver, Freedom Fighters and Mother Earth. Tracks 14 and 15 are Tomorrow, with and without Lennon. Track 22 remixes Total Chaos. Tracks 23-28 are source material and Track 29 contains all 500 uses.
