This was chosen as the album's lead single, which angered David Hodo, the group's hard-hat-wearing construction worker. "I threw a fit when they picked 'In the Navy' because I thought it was like a children's song. I can remember saying, 'If that's a hit, I will eat
that record,'" he recalled in a Pop Matters
interview. "I was so glad they didn't hold me to that. There was a lot of filler stuff that was really good music."
