* {{Retraux}}: Beck's 2012 "album" ''Song Reader'' was originally released not as a record, or a CD, or a collection of MP3 files, or as any kind of recorded performance at all--it was published as ''printed sheet music''. 20 tracks worth. If you can read traditional music notation and you have a piano or guitar, knock yourself out. Beck himself performed "I'm Down" and "Sorry" from ''Song Reader'' in live shows before finally releasing ''Song Reader'' as a record in 2014, except he only sang "Heaven's Ladder" and outsourced the rest to artists such as Music/JackWhite, Music/{{Fun}}, Music/JarvisCocker, Music/{{Sparks}}, among many others.

Since then, he has released seven more albums, his latest being 2014's ''Morning Phase''. During this time, he had become noted for the [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly large variety of genres]] his work takes in. Critics have deemed him one of the most definitive solo artists in AlternativeRock (if not the most influential), with ''Odelay'' and ''Sea Change'' being among his most acclaimed records.

* The upcoming album ''Colors'' (2017) - In June 2015, Beck released the single "Dreams" with the aim of it being the lead single from his next album. He says it started as a garage-rock album, but will be more a funky sequel to Midnite Vultures. During the two year period, additional singles "Wow", "Dear Life" and "Up All Night" were also released despite delays encountered with recording the full album.

* ArtisticLicensePhysics /BadassBoast: As part of Beck's BadassBoast in "In A Cold Ass Fashion", he mentions that he can "Squeeze the breeze" and "Smoke a pack of whiskey". He does the latter with JesusChrist, implying that Beck has these powers because he's a godlike figure.

* ClusterFBomb: Swearing was rather common on ''Mellow Gold'' and other early albums. As of late, though, he's been cutting down on the amount of swearing in his lyrics. Special note to the song "Mutherfuker" which is this deliberately abrasive on purpose.

** "Dreams" is an exception to the above, the bridge is "Stop fucking with my dreams" repeated twice.

Added DiffLines:

* ClumsyCopyrightCensorship: His head is blurred out in the beginning of the video for "Loser", because he was wearing a ''Franchise/StarWars'' mask without getting permission for it.

Added DiffLines:

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: "Mixed Bizness" contains a muffled, robotic-sounding "fuck you" towards the end. This was not changed for the video.

* BonusMaterial:
** Deluxe versions of ''The Information'' included a DVD containing music videos for ''every song on the CD''.
** "Diamond Bollocks" is a bonus track on ''Mutations'' (hidden on the US release but separate on others) because Beck couldn't find a way to fit it in the tracklisting. He described it as "the wayward son at the Thanksgiving dinner who just doesn't really fit in with the family anymore, is the black sheep. So you put him at the end of the table..." Other versions of ''Mutations'' also include bonus material - UK, German and Japanese versions add "Runners Dial Zero", German Limited Edition has "Halo Of Gold" and "Black Balloon" in addition to the usual German tracks, Japanese version has the re-recorded version of "Electric Music And The Summer People" inserted in the main tracklisting.
