** The refrain of ''Faro'' is just that. Literally.

* AssShove: The end of the spoken part at the end of "Servi della gleba", translated: "Do you want me to shove a broom up my ass, so that I can sweep your room?". The music video ends with exactly that image, first of the band members sporting a broom up there, and then of the incredulous guy (another band member) reading their adventures on the toilet and getting understandably horrified. The broom up one's ass is their symbol of being an ExtremeDoormat, what "Servi della gleba" is all about. Hilariously, in a video made about ten years after that one, the same band member plays a character that ''still'' has a broom lodged in there!

* ACappella: the album version of "Unanimi"

* ACappella: the album version of "Unanimi""Unanimi".
* AnimatedMusicVideo: A curious example. They never used this trope until the 2010s, when suddenly almost every other video they made was animated. A few examples:
** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yMLrdESf_uc Dannati Forever]]" (animated cutouts quite obviously inspired by Monty Python)
** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=919ZZdMBbHA Il primo giorno di scuola]]"
** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDB9Pf2Ho_Y Luigi il pugilista]]" (this and the former one were made by Italian cartoonist and animator Sio)
** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1KBee36SUI Il mistero dei bulli]]" (inspired by pictograms on signals)
** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DJ5dyp0Xo4 I delfini nuotano]]" (made by an AscendedFanboy and a homage to Music/TheWhiteStripes' mst famous clip, ''Seven Nation Army'').

** The cover of ''L'album biango'' is a ShoutOut to TheBeatles' "White Album". The title, indeed, can be translated more or less as "The Whyte Album".

* CreditsGag: From the song "Il vitello dai piedi di balsa" ("The Calf with Balsa Feet"). One of the calves is credited in the album's booklet as [[Music/ThePolice Sting]]. You know, the one who doesn't say anything.

* Figgatta De Blanc[[note]]The name is a pun: it blends Music/The Police 's ''Reggatta De Blanc'' with "figata", Italian for something cool, like "the bee's knees" or "the shit". The whole title is translatable roughly as "a freaking cool white"[[/note]] (2016)

* {{Corpsing}}: Every time they perform "Alfieri" live, Elio and Faso try to make Cesareo laugh while he's singing his stanza. It's not a particularly difficult task.

* ClusterFBomb: EELST have no problems with profanity and swear words, but it gets particularly dense in "Bis", even if it's not an "angry" song.
** In contrast, the very last line of "Parco Sempione" comes out as a PrecisionFStrike. The language is particularly strong, the insults are directed to a very specific real-life target and the drums underline every syllable of the last line, making it almost a music version of PunctuatedForEmphasis


Added DiffLines:

** The most egregious example may be their version of "Largo al factotum" from Rossini's Theatre/TheBarberOfSeville. By the means of a strategically placed pause after the second syllable of "Figaro" (the name of the Barber himself) Elio managed to sing a very common slang word for a lady's private parts on stage during the most popular music Festival in Italy, which is broadcasted live in prime time. Repeatedly.
