After "Shiny Happy People"'s release, comedian Denis Leary attacked it on an MTV standup performance (which was recorded and later released as No Cure For Cancer). In one rant, he exclaimed, "Hey, hey, hey! Pull this bus over to the side of the pretentiousness turnpike! I want everybody out, I want the shiny people over here and the happy people over here! I represent angry, gun-toting, meat-eating fucking people! ...Sit down and shut the fuck up, Michael."
