* EpicRocking: "The Real Thing", "Jizzlobber", "Zombie Eaters", "King for a Day", their cover of "[[Music/BlackSabbath War Pigs]]". Ironically, "Epic" is slightly less than five minutes long (4:55).

* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: Trey Spruance's guitar credit is buried at the very end of the credits in the liner notes for ''King For A Day...'' due to the band being pissed at him for backing out of the band at the last minute after replacing Jim Martin and recording the album (he saw the tour schedule and decided it wasn't for him).

** "Das Schutzenfest" is a parody of German polka music, and how music sung in other languages can often include offensive lyrics that would go past the radar of someone who doesn't know the language in question.

* {{Retraux}}: The song "Mouth To Mouth" from ''Album Of The Year'' is written in the style of the band's work with Chuck Mosley. Mike Patton imitates Chuck's rhythmic style of rapping (similar to tracks like "R'N'R"), and the Middle Eastern sounding music calls to mind the way many of the songs from that period were based around synth lines and tight bass and drum rhythms. The track particularly stands out because the rest of the album is far more driven by electronica and metal. Many fans have wondered what "Mouth To Mouth" would sound like with Chuck on vocals.

* 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 was a particularly unlikely lead single for ''Sol Invictus''.
* StraightGay: Roddy Bottum. Bottum revealed his homosexuality in 1993. In a 2001 article in The Advocate, Bottum stated that "I would never have thought as a gay teen I'd be in a band that would be considered heavy metal or hard rock."
* SurprisinglyGentleSong: Their cover of [[Music/BlackSabbath "War Pigs"]] was a live staple, so at a certain point they decided to spite the metalhead audience who started to ask for "War Pigs" and go into the Commodores' "Easy", and later Music/TheBeeGees' "I Started A Joke" instead.

** "Land of Sunshine", which has quite a funky tune, is about cults brainwashing people by asking a lot of personal questions and then pretending these things are 'wrong' and they can help them. [[note]]The song was written by piecing together phrases from fortune cookies and [[ChurchOfHappyology Scientology]] personality test questions.[[/note]]

** 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".

* 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.
