* ReligionRantSong: "As Heaven is Wide" is a Type 1 [[note]]Although it's really more about somebody who has been hurt by a (supposedly) religious man than about God or religion themselves, so shades of Type 3 are also present[[/note]].



* TakeThat / SexIsLiberation: "Sex Is Not The Enemy" is very much aimed at MoralGuardians and UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush criticizing their attitudes about love and sex. (Shirley declared that a major inspiration was the outcry following Music/JanetJackson's WardrobeMalfunction).
** The album also has a ProtestSong against [[TheWarOnTerror Dubya and friends' foreign policies]], "Boys Wanna Fight".
** [[https://youtu.be/8ynWWrFXQok ''I betcha glad your girlfriend's doesn't cheat like me. Betcha, I betcha.]] [[Music/PussycatDolls I betcha glad your girlfriend's not a slut like me. Betcha, I betcha'']]

* PrecisionFStrike: Played straight with "Bleed Like Me" ("fuck"), "Cherry Lips" "Why Do You Love Me", "Boys Wanna Fight" and "What Girls are Made Of" ("shit") and "Shut Your Mouth" ([[BreadEggsBreadedEggs both]]).

* {{Fanservice}}: Played straight most of the time but is zig zagged on occasion. Videos such as "Vow", "Queer", "Run Baby Run" and "Blood for Poppies" downplays this by have Shirley in normal attire while other videos feature her in short dresses. "I'm Think I'm Paranoid" (see PantyShot below), "Cherry Lips" (An invisible Shirley sees her [[DressHitsFloor clothes fall off]] and walks naked to the bathroom) and "Bleed Like Me" turn this UpToEleven.

* GreatestHitsAlbum: ''Absolute Garbage'', but it wasn't composed solely of their previous songs, as "Tell Me Where It Hurts" was released on it. Five year later, their Australian record company released a repackaged and resequenced version titled "The Absolute Collection" which omitted "You Look So Fine" and "The World is Not Enough" and added two of their singles from ''beautifulgarbage'' and ''Not Your Kind of People'' apiece, as well as "Supervixen" from their debut.

** ''Not Your Kind of People" hasn't fared much better in the war either.

* RecordProducer: The band is always credited for producing its own albums. (the only outside producers were David Arnold in "The World Is Not Enough", and [[Music/TheDustBrothers John King]] in "Bad Boyfriend" and B-side "Space Can Come Through Anyone" the other ''Bleed Like Me'' songs they worked on with him were re-recorded).

* CoolOldGuy: The guys were born in TheFifties, so they all really broke out as musicians over or nearing 40, and evolve more and more into this. ** CoolOldLady: Shirley, born in 1966, also fit once TheNewTens kicked it. Not [[OlderThanTheyLook that she looked]] [[http://paranoid13xforever.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/screen-shot-2012-01-29-at-18-39-08.png aged 45]] or [[http://thumbnails.cbc.ca/maven_legacy/thumbnails/619/35/Q_S15-16_02-06-2016_1280x720_2500kbps.jpg?crop=1.777xh:h;*,*&downsize=560px:* near 50]].

* FakeShemp: Butch Vig was badly ill during the shoot for "Cherry Lips", so for the parts where he'd be wearing a green morph suit and invisible anyway, he was portrayed by a crew member who could play drums well enough to pass as him. He did recover enough to record the scenes he'd need to be visible in though.


Added DiffLines:

* ItMakesSenseInContext: The twist ending of "Cherry Lips", if oyu were paying attention to the lyrics.

*** "No Horses" has quite a few lines sung in a breathy whisper that's mostly her real accent. Especially the line "This is the apocalypse".
