Don't Turn Your Back was about the Harry Canyon sequence (lyrics include "one chance to save her" and "You never know who your friends really are. You use that special action in your car". Vengeance:The Pact was about Taarna. The song "Heavy Metal: The Black and Silver". The cover of the album shows the Loc-Nar being held by one of the characters.
