    Trivia (1)

    • There's just a minor time line error in the episode when Lindsay and Nick are listening to "The Spirit of Radio" in his basement as he does his best to play along with his idol, Neil Peart. The show is set in 1980, and in the second episode John Bonham dies, which did happen that year. This is just three episodes later, and just two after the one that was on Halloween. So it seems like it's still supposed to be 1980, but they're listening to the live version of the song which was on Exit...Stage Left. But that album came out in 1981, so they're just off by about a few months to a year.

    • Daniel: You know, you and Yoko here have turned music into school. Yoko Ono was the wife of John Lennon, founding member of the Beatles. The break up of the Beatles is often blamed on Ono and her relationship with John.
