* 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)

Added DiffLines:

* {{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.

Added DiffLines:

* ACappella: the album version of "Unanimi"


Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* ImpracticalMusicalInstrumentSkills: in their early years, Elio used to play Faso's bass guitar by standing behind him while the latter was busy performing the fake phone call at the end of "Servi della gleba" ("Serfs")

* SoccerHatingAmericans: "Nessuno allo stadio" ("Nobody at the stadium"), released just before the 1994 USA World Cup, pictures empty stadia, no flags, no crackers, no hooligans and so on.
--> "Soccer is a rite that must be respected, Europe gets crazy about it and wants it to be popular in the USA, too
--> Basically, Americans don't care about the World Cup in America"

Added DiffLines:

**Also, the last verse of "Vincere l'odio" (which has five stanzas with very different melodic lines and completely unrelated lyrics) goes like this:

-->"Singing this bad song, unpleasant to sing... It may be bad, but I like it.
--> Bad song. I bet you too have had a bad song in your head"

After Feiez's demise, they reduced their appearances on TV and the live concerts, only restarting in about the mid-2000s. Since then Elio and the others made such things as sport and commercial jingles, hosted TV programmes, played in classical concerts and more. The band has also been the first one, in 2004, to sell instant [=CDs=] of their live performances immediately after their end. Oh, and they went again to Sanremo in 2013 and won second prize. Again. For real this time.

** Sanremo 1996 saw them one time dressed as French space rock band [[http://www.lesrockets.com/ Rockets]], silver body painting and all (Elio actually even shaved his head). They repeated this at Sanremo 2013, by being dressed first as choir boys, then wearing fat suits that made them all look like [[Film/MontyPythonsTheMeaningOfLife Mr. Creosote]].

And again at Sanremo 2016 they one day went dressed as Music/{{Kiss}}, black-and-white makeup and all.


Added DiffLines:

** Their Sanremo 2016 song "Vincere l'odio" ("Winning Hate" or "Winning against Hate") is pretty much seven songs in one, with every refrain ending with the word that starts the next one.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Homage}}: Their [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_sBn34djMw official video]] for "Vincere l'odio" is a homage to Music/FatboySlim's well-known video for "Weapon of Choice", with Mangoni in place of Christopher Walken (even if he, probably as a joke, says he's "Christopher Lambert"...).
