As we approach the 17th Anniversary, a chap called Chris just emailed me on this subject and gave me 2 examples he’d noticed. I hadn’t heard of either of these before, but I think the second one is incredibly blatant. Perhaps some folks on this list are already aware of both examples.
The first is a song by US Country Artist Ryan Adams. (Chris remembered seeing this on TV). It was released for sale on 11 Sept 2001:
was shot on Fri Sept 7, 2001.
In one of the most blatant examples I’ve seen, we have a group called “I Am The World Trade Center” releasing an album called “Out of the Loop”
I will leave you to look at the track listing. The album was released on 17 Jul 01 – or 170701 or 071701.
The album cover is shown on this page on a German website (which you can use Autotranslate for), with many other examples (some are rather tenuous however).
Also of note is the title on an album the “WTC group” released in 2004 (see link on the Discogs site).
I wonder if you find this as unsettling as I do (even though I’ve seen many other examples over the years, like on the German page, this last one seems more blatant to me).
Also, have a look at Carl James’ excellent analysis of the symbolism in the Back to the Future Trilogy.
