* NoseShove: In "Fish Fight Song", the female lead threatens to shove the husband's fish eggs up his nose if he shrugs off his duties as a father in favor of fishing again. She then implies an AssShove with the spoken line "Somewhere else, too".

* NuttySquirrel: "Burt & Ernie", a skit on ''One Can Short of a Six-Pack'', has [=DeCaire=] and Potila voicing two squirrels (voices pitched up to match). As mentioned above, ''Jackpine Savage'' revived the skit as "Burt & Bunna", with Bellmore and [=DeCaire=] now voicing them.

** ''Yoopanese'' is all over this, as the band barely resembles itself. "My Shoes" and "Critics Tune" are completely serious songs with more generic themes (adultery and TakeThatCritics, respectively); "Robot Girl" and "I Don't Wanna Glow" have science fiction overtones that stand in contrast to the mostly realistic approach of their later work; and "Road to Gwinn" is one of only a very small number of parodies in their catalog. It is also the only album besides ''Yoopy Do Wah'' not to have interstitial skits or guest musicians.[[note]]''We're Still Rockin''' came close to the latter as well, since the only guest musician is Jim [=DeCaire's=] son Jesse on lead guitar on one song.[[/note]]
** ''Yoopanese'' and ''Culture Shock'' also have Lynn playing an analog synthesizer, as opposed to the keyboards used on later albums. "Last Frontier", the first track on the latter, is also the only time the band ever used a drum machine.
** ''Culture Shock'' and ''Camp Fever'' include renditions of traditional Finnish folk songs, another subject the band never revisited.

** ''Culture Shock'' Shock'', despite containing the very famous "Rusty Chevrolet" and "Second Week of Deer Camp", still contains some weirdness. Notably, some tracks still have Lynn playing a synthesizer ("Last Frontier" even has a drum machine, something the band never used again); "Chiquito War" continues to show a mild science-fiction theme; and guest musicians perform some Finnish folk songs near the end. Also, "Rusty Chevrolet" and "Second Week of Deer Camp" are examples themselves, as the former is a parody, and the latter is "traditional" folk with only a gutbucket bass and accordion.

* NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: They've done traditional folk songs, polka, country, and rock, just to name a few. This genre-hopping gets turned UpToEleven on ''We're Still Rockin''', where every song is done in a different musical style (for example: "Big Truck" is truck-driving country, "Green Green Grass" is {{reggae}}, "Vampire Surfin' Girls" is surf rock, "My First Time Ever" is a cappella, "Shuckin' da Cob" is {{grunge}}, etc.).
* NewSoundAlbum: ''We're Still Rockin''' turned up the rock influences in the band's sound, which have more or less stayed on subsequent albums (likely a result of Jim Bellmore taking over from Joe Potila).

* SameLanguageDub: They released a music video for "Rusty Chevrolet" in the early 1990s, featuring the group's then-lineup of Jim [=DeCaire=], Joe Potila, Lynn Coffey, Doc Bradbury, and Jerry Coffey. However, the latter two were not in the band at the time the song was released, and [=DeCaire=] didn't play anything on it, so Jim D., Doc, and Jerry are lip-syncing to parts that they didn't actually sing. Much later, after Jim Bellmore joined, they released a video compilation mostly composed of songs released before his joining, resulting in him (and a few others) lip-syncing to parts that they never sang.

**This actually originates in ''Culture Shock'', but is easy to miss. Only one interstitial skit there explicitly mentions the station call sign YOOP, but the station call-in phone number (used in the skit ''Talk Time'') is also an obvious tell once you know about the FramingDevice: 371-YOOP.
