* LyricalDissonance: "Jimmy Carter" reuses a chorus line from "[[BackstreetBoys Backstreet's Back]]", except that it's sung in a very serious and somber tone, used in a very serious and melancholy way, and juxtaposed with depressing quotations from Creator/WilliamButlerYeats.

** "Down at [=McDonellzzz=]" parodies old multi-language MTV videos with a woman doing sign language next to scrolling text in UsefulNotes/EsperantoTheUniversalLangauge.
* AIIsACrapshoot: The titular device from the song "Broken Machine." As the lyrics go, it doesn't care if it tears us apart. It also suffers from [[spoiler:erectile dysfunction.]]

* {{Angst}}: Examples include "Rubber Rocket" about the protagonist lamenting that he'd jerk off to internet porn rather than go back to a particular woman and "The Band in Hell" involving a failed artist lamenting his apparent one-way romance with someone... and is now forced to play at a seedy bar in Hell with a band that has Hitler in it to suck for all eternity. Yeah.

Electric Six are a UsefulNotes/{{Detroit}} sextet that formed in 1996. The band began in earnest as "The Wildbunch" until a group from Bristol found out and complained. They're best known for their single [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2a4gyJsY0mc "Danger! High Voltage!,"]] a dance-friendly duet with [[Music/TheWhiteStripes a mechanic who won a contest to sing with the band because he was the only person to enter]], and its associated video which involves the lead singer making out with a middle-aged woman on [[RefugeInAudacity a stuffed moose, and both of them have a glowing crotch.]] The video for their single [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTN6Du3MCgI "Gay Bar"]] also received viral-type attention on the internet for its [[CampGay very unique take]] on the White House cabinet of US president UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln. Members of the band are also involved in such listen-worthy side projects as [[http://www.myspace.com/evilcowards Evil Cowards]] and the dairy promotion campaign [[http://joliesimons.wordpress.com/2008/04/24/white-gold-detroits-electric-six-sexes-up-the-magic-of-dairy/ White Gold.]]

** ''Señor Smoke'' ends with a song titled "Future Is In The Future."



* ILoveTheDead: "Alone With Your Body" is described as "the feel-good necrophilia anthem of the summer."



** "Dark Angel" has the singer telling a girl to be "[his] Capri-Sun."



* RhymingWithItself: The first verse of "Dark Angel" begins with Dick rhyming "street" with itself three times in a row... and then rhyming "torture" with itself right after that.



* WhipItGood: The cover of ''Human Zoo'' has a man using a leather belt in this fashion. On some rug pelts.
