* NewSoundAlbum: "Daisies From The Galaxy" was a more joyful album than his previous two. "Souljacker" was loud and rocking compared to his earlier output.
* ObsessionSong: "My Timing is Off" and several other songs on "Hombre Lobo".
* RearrangeTheSong: They like to do this in their live performances. For instance the studio version of "I Like Birds" is laid back and based around acoustic guitar and drum machine, but at concerts they tend to increase the tempo and turn it into a noisy pop punk number. There was also a spell where E would speak the lyrics of "Novocaine For The Soul" instead of singing them, although otherwise the arrangement stayed the same.

Although Eels never really broke out into the mainstream ("Novocaine for the Soul" from ''Music/BeautifulFreak'' was a minor hit, but [[OneHitWonder that's about it for them chartwise]] in the United States), they do have a large and dedicated cult following. The 1998 album ''Electro-Shock Blues,'' E's effort to come to terms with the deaths of his mother and sister, is usually considered his ''MagnumOpus.'' The latest album, ''The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett,'' was released in 2014.

** "What Is This Note?" reverses the usual trend for Eels songs: It's a fast-paced song with noisy, distorted guitars and aggressibely shouted vocals... But the lyrics are about being happily in love ("The day is new and a good one too / How can I prove my love to you? / I wanna give you everything / Me and the birds, now we're gonna sing").
