** In live performances, Mike Patton pretty much always adds a couple of these to "Epic" - "it's outta sight" becomes "shit's outta sight", while "so you lay down on it and you do it some more" becomes "so you lay down on it and you fuck it some more".

* StepUpToTheMicrophone: "Motherfucker" has Roddy Bottum speak/rapping the verses, with Mike Patton only singing the chorus. Combine that with an IntentionallyAwkwardTitle and a chorus consisting of a ClusterFBomb, and it's a particularly unlikely lead single for ''Sol Invictus''.

* ThreeChordsAndTheTruth: It's very rare for this band, but they do have an example in their cover of Music/GGAllin's "I Wanna Fuck Myself" - in order to mimic the sound of the original version, they deliberately made the recording quality as murky and indistinguishable as possible.

After going through a series of singers which included CourtneyLove, the band was joined by Chuck Mosley in 1983. The same year, Jim Martin was recruited to replace guitarist Mark Bowen. After a long, long time spent changing the lineup before, eventually, Chuck Mosley was replaced by Music/MikePatton, and the band found massive success with their third album, ''The Real Thing'', which contains their best-known song "Epic".

* EvilLaugh: The chorus of "Land Of Sunshine" consists of this provided by Mike Patton.
* FakeOutFadeOut: The album version of "Anne's Song" fades out near the end of the track, then it quickly fades back in for about ten seconds and [[NoEnding just abruptly cuts off]] - this is particularly jarring because the next track on the album, "Introduce Yourself", has a LyricalColdOpen.

** They have performed live versions of "Evidence" in several languages. The translation isn't always so smooth. A studio version of the song in Spanish was available via iTunes, and appears on the Argentinian release of ''Fool For A Day... King For A Lifetime''.

* SurprisinglyGentleSong \ TrollingCreator: Their cover of [[Music/BlackSabbath "War Pigs"]] was a live staple. So at a certain point they decided to spite the metalhead audience who even started to ask for "War Pigs" and go into the Commodores' "Easy", and later TheBeeGees' "I Started A Joke" instead.

The band is best known for combining elements of HeavyMetal, {{Funk}}, ProgressiveRock, HipHop, HardcorePunk, and {{Jazz}}, among many others, [[spoiler:among many, many, many others... seriously...]], and is considered one of the most influential rock bands of modern times, "Epic" having massively influenced the NuMetal genre.
