* {{Animesque}}: The cover art for ''The Money Store'', which features a topless wide-eyed {{moe}}blob with "DEATH GRIPS" razored into her chest and a pig gimp mask, led around by another anime-styled girl, as drawn by Sua Yoo (who draws zines in this style).
* TheAntiNihilist: The whole band seems to be this, based on interviews. "On GP" has him deciding against suicide after a lengthy rant.

* {{Mondegreen}}: One of the lines in "Birds" says what innocently seems like "I had a bluebird / Now it's dead". However, lyric sites claim that it's actually "I had a bluebird / Now it's ''did''".

** Invoked in "BB Poison"; the song's hook actually goes "Obey me, poison", but the way Ride says it sounds a lot like "Oh, baby, poison", which could then be reworked into "Oh, [[TitleDrop BB poison]]".


Added DiffLines:

* TakeThatAudience: "BB Poison" directly talks about the [[TrollingCreator strange and twisted]] relationship the band has with their fans, considering fan freakouts and meme explosions have become an integral part of the band's culture.

* BoastfulRap: Oh so many. Also subverted on many occasions, as Stefan's lyrics frequently display a great deal of self-loathing and suicidal thoughts, especially on later albums.
