Lyrically, Counterparts continues the trend of dark and emotional themes; it takes on difficult subjects such as homosexuality and crime, yet it keeps a general concept of ambition, sadness, and love on songs like "Nobody's Hero", "Speed of Love", and even "Cold Fire". "Leave That Thing Alone" earned a Grammy nomination for "Best Instrumental". The song "Stick It Out" is one of the band's "heaviest" works in quite some time, and the video was featured on an episode of Beavis and Butt-Head where Beavis said "The guitar is pretty cool" (after mocking the 1980 Rush track "The Spirit of Radio") only for Butt-Head to reply "Yeah, if you are a wuss". Beavis and Butt-head is an American Animated television series created by Mike Judge. Other highlights include "Animate" and "Double Agent".
