* LampshadingTheObscureReference: When working in a science lab, he would write Music/{{Devo}} on his chemical protective suit (as they looked like something Devo would wear onstage, hell, probably was), to the bafflement of the middle aged scientists working there. He would then proceed to make of them for being out of touch, despite at the time Devo being a fairly obscure band.

** He has so many of these that he served as host to NationalGeographic's documentary on "[[http://youtu.be/35cOqZI067E The Warrior Gene]]", wondering whether he had it - [[spoiler: he did not]].

** The entirety of the ''Eric the Pilot'' saga (the whole tale takes up an entire spoken word disc). Henry's flight got cancelled to a gig in Oklahoma, and as he scrambled for a new flight out of St. Louis, a "pilot" approached and said he would take him on his small charter plane. The plane got completely lost and made an emergency landing in a tiny air strip in the middle of nowhere. Turns out Eric a) was not a licensed pilot (still in training) and b) had taken the plane without his company's or the FFA's permission. He was just a huge fan trying to impress and help his idol.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks:
** ''Get in the Van'' includes his annoyance at fans of Black Flag who told him he had "ruined" the band by taking over on vocals.
** Invoked in a bit about how a lot of bands "mature" and "grow" as musicians, and end up sucking as a result. Used as an example of why he loves Music/{{Slayer}}, because they're always...''Slayer.''

'''Henry Rollins''' (February 13, 1961-) is quite intelligent, and despite his imposing physical appearance and manic performance style, he is a nice - even shy - guy and something of a nerd, embracing the Internet and other technology at the cutting edge. (This may be because he initially cultivated the whole "physically imposing" deal to cope with rowdy, often-violent Black Flag shows).
