* TakeThat: Towards Music/{{Staind}} and Music/LimpBizkit in the music video for "Girl All the Bad Guys Want," in particular making fun of the Fred Durst directed music videos for "It's Been a While" by Staind and "Break Stuff" by Limp Bizkit. Near the end of the video is a scene of Music/{{Slipknot}} lookalikes beating up a parody of Fred Durst as a reference to a feud Slipknot had with Limp Bizkit in the late 90s.

Bowling For Soup (also known as BFS) is an American pop-punk band started in 1994 in Wichita Falls, Texas. Their songs focus on drinking, partying, peppy songs about being a high school ButtMonkey and teenaged debauchery, and ones that are almost a deconstruction and analysis of the UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist (the song A-hole). Other times they talk about the band being high school buddies and the GirlOfTheWeek. Basically the kind of themes you'd find in an average Blink 182 song or a high school freshman's journal.
