* 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".

* NWordPrivileges: The name of Lowery's band Cracker is a tongue-in-cheek invocation of this trope, referring to "cracker" in its racial sense.

* AffectionateParody: Bradley Nowell of {{Sublime}} recorded an acoustic parody of "{{Lassie}} Went to the Moon" about his missing dog, Lou Dog (as well as releasing a more straightforward cover of "Eye of Fatima Pt. 1"). Camper Van Beethoven would later cover "Garden Grove," one of Sublime's songs.

* StepUpToTheMicrophone: Jonathan Segel, Victor Krummenacher, and David Lowery more or less split vocal duties evenly for ''Tusk'', which is otherwise highly unusual for the band. This is most likely because the lineup of FleetwoodMac that recorded the original album also featured a three-way VocalTagTeam. In fact, the three of them are generally paired with a specific Fleetwood Mac member: David Lowery mainly sings on songs originally sung by Christine [=McVie=], Jonathan Segel mainly sings Lindsey Buckingham, and Victor Krummenacher mainly sings Stevie Nicks.

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