** "ZZ Top Goes To Egypt" combines the blues-rock of early ZZTop with a stereotypically Ancient Egyptian-sounding violin melody.

* SyntheticVoiceActor: No one in the band wanted to sing "Sister Of The Moon" on the ''Tusk'' cover album, so they had a text-to-speech program read the lyrics instead. They also gave it some SpinalTap references and quotes from Creator/WilliamShakespeare and Pindar to recite, seemingly just for the hell of it.

* CreditsGag: The back cover of ''Key Lime Pie'' gives the track-list and other pertinent information in the form of a long paragraph formatted to scroll around the CD case, and includes a couple of humorous asides: Besides alluding to the CutSong below, the text also laments that having to include legal notices "makes it a little more difficult to have a stark artsy sleeve like all those cool British imports".

* CutSong: If the liner notes to ''Key Lime Pie'' are to believed, there was supposed to be a "Closing Theme" to go with its "Opening Theme", but the album was "just too damn long" already. If this is the same "Closing Theme" that later appeared on the outtake compilation ''Camper Van Beethoven Is Dead, Long Live Camper Van Beethoven'', then it turns out that it was already used as a BSide under the title "Guitar Hero".
