* NonAppearingTitle: "Clint Eastwood" (its name is derived from a recurring sample from the theme of ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly''), "Feel Good Inc." (though the phrase "feel good" does appear), "Empire Ants" (thought the word "empire" appears), "Every Planet We Reach Is Dead", "Fire Coming Out of a Monkey's Head" (though that phrase ''does'' appear on [[SiameseTwinSongs the very next song on the album]]. "Dirty Harry" (named such because of the references to gun violence in the song, as well as because Clint Eastwood played Film/DirtyHarry in the titular film), "19-2000", and "Slow Country" (though it comes close).

Added DiffLines:

** The cover to ''Humanz'', while primarily being an InternalHomage to the cover of ''Music/DemonDays'', features the bandmates [[https://i.imgur.com/ZGYRNXQ.jpg who are depicted as visual references to photos of other famous musicians.]] Specifically, Noodle is based on Music/{{Bjork}}, 2D is Music/{{Beck}}, Murdoc is Music/KeithRichards, and Russel is Music/TheNotoriousBig.

* StylisticSuck: The music video to "Sleeping Powder" features some ''very'' stiff and shoddy motion-capture, most notably with how 2D's fingers don't even come close to pressing the piano keys he's apparently playing. However, given the surreal nature of [[DisneyAcidSequence the rest of the video]] [[OdeToIntoxication and the song itself,]] this is very likely intentional.

* XtremeKoolLetterzXtremeKoolLetterz: Gorillaz's very title, of course. Phase 4 re-embraced this trope, using "Z" in place of an "S", with ''Humanz'' and some of its tracklist, including "Saturnz Barz", "Tranzformer", "Circle of Friendz", etc.

** "Out of Body" references "Busted & Blue".

** "Out of Body" references "Busted & Blue". "Busted & Blue" itself has a lyrical/melodical callback to "Saturnz Barz".

** The cover art to ''Music/DemonDays'' is very similar to the cover of ''Music/LetItBe'' by Music/TheBeatles.
*** And Humanz references both.
