* MusicalWorldHypotheses: One of those musicals that are ''not'' Alternate Universe. Some of the songs are diegetic, such as "Robots," "If You're Into It" and "Albi the Racist Dragon"; some of the songs are All In Their Heads, like "Business Time" and "Prince of Parties", and some of the songs are musical adaptations of events that really do happen, such as "Foux da Fa Fa, "Most Beautiful Girl in the Room," "I Told You I Was Freekie" and "Hurt Feelings." Sometimes, it's not really clear what happened. After the two spend a few minutes doing a ridiculous performance of ''Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros'' in front of two muggers, the only response they get is, "Were you guys dancing a little bit?"

** The song "Most Beautiful Girl in the Room" is filled with these, serenading the subject with the fact that she's the most beautiful girl in the whole wide room, and could become an airline stewardess or a part-time model.

* AffectionateParody: "Bowie" is an over-the-top, yet still somehow spot-on parody of Music/DavidBowie; "Inner City Pressure" takes on the Music/PetShopBoys; "Fashion Is Danger" - the entire [[TheEighties New Romantic]] genre; "You Don't Have to be a Prostitute" - "Roxanne" by Music/ThePolice; "I'm Not Crying" - "I'm Not In Love" by 10CC; "Hurt Feelings (Reprise)" is a dead-on take of the "Wise Up" [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aimee_Mann Aimee Mann]] montage in ''{{Magnolia}}''.

** The Season 1 finale could apply. [[spoiler:"The Crazy Dogggz", a band formed by Todd and [[Creator/DemetriMartin Demetri]] (two musicians who quit the Conchords), has hit the big time with a song Bret and Jemaine refused to play. Their manager, who also manages the Dogggz, has almost totally stopped managing them. And, possibly worst of all, their former LoonyFan, Mel, has lost all interest in them.]] However, as this ''is'' the Conchords we're talking about, it's all played for laughs.

* GratuitousFrench: "Foux de Fa Fa," which is basically the fragments of French that they remember from school shoehorned into song form to try to impress women.

* BunnyEarsLawyer: In-universe, Brett and Jermaine are complete losers who couldn't draw a crowd with their music to save their lives. In real life, however, they are some damn fine musicians with an ear for witty songs and clever rhymes.
