* APirate400YearsTooLate
* PirateSong: A pirate-themed PowerMetal band that patterns its songs after these, with sea shanty beats and lyrics about [[https://youtube.com/watch?v=GTyMhv7MCCs the golden age of piracy]] and [[https://youtube.com/watch?v=Od7I54LHTTU warfare]]. And sometimes sillier things like [[https://youtube.com/watch?v=f55CqLc6IR0 stealing beer]]. They have also made {{Cover Version}}s of other famous pirate songs, like "[[Series/LazyTown We Are a Pirate]]", "[[Music/StanRogers Barrett's Privateers]]" and "Wolves of the Sea".

* APirate400YearsTooLate
APirate400YearsTooLate: A few of their songs are sung from a modern perspective, like "The Sunk'n Norwegian," about how hard it is to find any place good enough to be a modern pirate.

** The 7-second long "Rumpelkombo" is this. Once, Alestorm was touring with GraveDigger, and they were basically the opposite of Alestorm: old, cranky, and hated drinking and partying, so the entire tour pretty much consisted of GraveDigger hating Alestorm. During an interview, the lead singer, Chris Boltendahl described Alestorm as a "rumpelkombo," which basically means "group of rowdy idiots." Well, Christopher Bowes then decided to write the really quick song where the only word is "rumpelkombo," but then credited the lyrics to Boltendahl, thus giving him a royalty check every month that's a couple of cents from Alestorm, reminding him of them every month.

* [[ViewersAreGeniuses Listeners Are Geniuses]]: "The Huntmaster" ends by quoting the English translation of the poem inscribed on bottles of Jägermeister, which itself is the German word for "Huntmaster".

** And done again in "Rage of the Pentahook":
-->''He fights to die,\\
He lives to kill,\\
To cut your throat,\\
His greatest skill,\\
He'll eat your kids,\\
And punch your house.''
** and
-->''He'll break your neck,\\
And eat your face,\\
The foe of all the human race,\\
He'll stab your mum,\\
And drink your rum.''

* {{Deconstruction}}: While they do sing about the joys and adventures of piracy, Pirate's Song is a rather brutal deconstruction of the whole romantic pirate, showing the singing protagonist as a ruthless monster who lost all his glory in his old age.
