* CompletelyMissingThePoint: Not Caparezza himself, but many listeners. He wrote a catchy song called "Fuori dal tunnel", about how the system is trying to uniform people's free time too... which immediately became a huge summer hit in discos and mainstream radio channels, the expressions of that "fun factory" he derided. He spoofed this in one song of his next album, when someone listens to "Fuori dal tunnel" and thinks that [[ViewersAreMorons it's about drugs]].

* LastNoteNightmare: The song "Limiti" from his second album ends with a few seconds of silence... followed by Capa screaming AIUTO! (''Help!'') in a distorted, screechy voice.

** Since "otto" means "eight" in Italian, the song ''Giotto Beat'' may be another great example: as a reference to Giotto the artist (the lyrics talk about "perspective"), as a play on words to "8-bit", and a reference to the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G8_%28forum%29 G8 summit]] ('''G-otto'''), especially the one that took place in Italy in 2001 where several protesters were brutally '''beat''' by police officers.

And it's also a throwback to the ''beat'' songs from TheSixties.

** And again for his song "Legalize the Premier". Despite ''explicitly'' stating in the lyrics that it's not advocating the legalization of marijuana (the song is about politicians making stuff legal for themselves thanks to their position), several listeners assume that, since he has a left-wing point of view, he ''must'' refer to free weed for everyone.

** The video for "Avrai ragione tu" contains several references to Russian and Communist-style iconography. The funniest one is a segment that replicates exactly the famous video of Eduard Khil (AKA [[MemeticMutation Trololo Guy]]).

He began his musical career in 1997 under the name '''Mikimix''', writing melodic rap/hip hop songs with little success; since 2000 he underwent a total change of appearance and style, rejecting his past and openly mocking it.

* TheBackwardsR: The video for "Avrai ragione tu", being in part a gentle spoof of Communist iconography, naturally features many of these. It also features V's in place of U's, which is more a Latin type of thing...


Added DiffLines:

** "Giotto Beat" from the 2014 album as well: as the title says, it sounds like a happy beat song from TheSixties, but the actual lyrics are pretty pessimistic.

** Once again, he did it for the first single of his upcoming 2014 album: titled "Cover", it is a long list of references to notorious album covers, which mirror his personal growth as a man and an artist.
