* {{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.

* ClusterFBomb: "Fucked With an Anchor" is an entire song that consists of a pirate with HollywoodTourettes threatening to [[AssShove shove an anchor up the arse]] of the Witch Doctor that cursed him. The chorus of the song provides a good example, shown under LyricalDissonance.
-->''Now when I speak, it's rather absurd\\
An endless tirade of four-letter words\\
I lash out in anger at all in my way\\
Shocking unspeakable things that I say!''
