* BadassBaritone: One of the bands trademarks is Brad Roberts' deep, resonant bass voice, which he jokingly attributes to having a third testicle. He would later use it to take up Inuit throat singing.

Got into an accident and couldn't come to school but,\\
When he finally came back,\\
His, hair, had turned from black into bright white.\\
He said that it was from when the cars had smashed so hard.''

* NotChristianRock: Despite the occasional references to God and Christianity, they aren't actually a Christian rock band. Most of these deal with Brad Roberts' whimsical views on the subject and even deconstruct it. If anything, the band might be considered Agnostic rock. God Shuffled His Feet is a good example, where God can't answer some questions himself.

* LyricalDissonance: ''There Are Many Dangers'' has somber music. The first line of the song? "If your toast gets stuck in the toaster, do not put a fork in the toaster, while it is hooked up". Brad goes to mournfully croon his experience doing just this.

'''Crash Test Dummies''' is a Canadian AlternativeRock band with a definitely folksy bent, especially in their early albums. Although they first hit it big in Canada with the mournful "{{Superman}}'s Song," they are best known for their hit "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm", a song that showcases lead singer Brad Robert's distinctive bass voice, as well as his frequently bizarre lyrical subject matter and style.

Not to be confused with TheIncredibleCrashDummies

* AnswerSong: Not deliberately, but "Superman's Song" seems to be a rebuttal to "Iron Man" by Musio/BlackSabbath. While the latter has rejected the humanity he previously saved and is poised for a RoaringRampageOfRevenge, the former is about embracing humanity.
