* A central tendency of ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'' is for Dethklok's concerts to typically wind up causing impressive body counts. In one episode, for example, the band's unnamed adopted child plays with the controls to the laser light show and winds up murdering a good part of the audience and the entire London Philharmonic orchestra. Other concerts included Dethklok's attempt at a blues concert (so depressing that it could be likened to the ending of ''Raiders of the Lost Ark''), and the episode where Dethklok accidentally summons a troll (which proceeds, of course, to go on a bloody rampage). One wonders how Dethklok has a fanbase considering that anyone becoming involved with them, in any way, has a tendency to die in an exceptionally brutal fashion.[[note]]Of course part of it is because Dethklok makes ''everything'' "metal", including coffee -- "blacker than the blackest black [[UpToEleven times infinity]]."[[/note]]

** "Accidentally" summons a troll? I'm pretty sure they were trying to summon it.
-->"Now, we've never tried to summon a lake troll from the Finnish ''Necronomicon'', so please bear with us. Here goes..."
** That is the quote from the album, but in the original episode, they were merely attempting to apologize for a disastrous previous tour of Finland by writing them a new national anthem, with lyrics taken from the Finnish Necronomicon.

** Because they are so very metal. No, really.

** The stage sets for the Smell the Glove tour were supposed to be pretty elaborate. However, since Tap is clearly on the way down, their label isn't willing to put a lot of money behind their tour. One concert has most of the band members in something resembling a chrysalis. Derek's doesn't open when it's supposed to and he spends almost the entire song trapped inside it. But that ''pales'' in comparison to their set for the song Stonehenge. It was intended to be a full-size replica, but at some point the person labeling the concept sketch thought that " was the abbreviation for ''feet'', so they wind up with a Stonehenge "in serious danger of being crushed by a dwarf".

* Pyrotechnics became so ubiquitous in the mid- to late-80s that at the 1987 {{MTV}} Music Video Awards, a bomb blast was used during the performance of Los Lobos' "La Bamba." "La frickin' '''Bamba'''," people!

** By the way, Alice invented this stuff. He's vaudeville. Which is why [[TheMarxBrothers Groucho]] was such a fan.
