Presidents of the United States are mentioned and seen various times in Free Country, in particular presidents Martin Van Buren and Abraham Lincoln. This is perhaps a nod to They Might Be Giants, who frequently use presidents as a theme in their music. It was revealed in an interview that The Brothers Chaps have an oval portrait of Lincoln hanging in their office.
