Fahrenheit 9/11

Question: What's the instrumental acoustic song that's played on the main menu of the DVD and also at various points throughout the movie? I believe it plays when they're showing on-the-ground reactions to the planes hitting. It's quite a slow, depressing song.

Chosen answer: It's an acoustic instrumental version of 'The Nobodies' by Marilyn Manson.

Question: I would like to know why Michael Moore named this film Fahrenheit 9/11. I know that the 9/11 is about the twin towers terrorist attack, but I can't get the Fahrenheit part. Could someone please explain?

Chosen answer: It's a reference to the book Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, which deals with a totalitarian society where people are not encouraged to think for themselves, question the government and so forth. One of the features of this society is that all books are burnt (hence the title - apparently the temperature at which paper will ignite).

Question: What was that phone number that they listed of that guy that lied about having an 800 number?

Kirill Ostapenko

Chosen answer: (202) 225-2536. It's not that major a revelation in the film, as his number's publicly available on a variety of sites.
