* DefectorFromParadise: Invoked in A Passion Play
--> "God of ages, Lord of Time, mine is the right, right to be wrong.
--> Well I'll go to the foot of our stairs.
--> Jack rabbit mister spawn a new breed
--> of love-hungry pilgrims (no bodies to feed).
--> Show me a good man and I'll show you the door.
--> The last hymn is sung and the devil cries 'More.'"

** Lampshaded in "Ring Out, Solstice Bells": ''"Seven maids move in seven time."'' Guess what meter the song is in for the most part.

* DrivingSong: DefiedTrope. The band did a number called "Driving Song" in 1969, but it's not about driving; its subject is how Anderson was being overworked.

** "Mother Goose" is pretty nonsensical, too.
** Certain parts of ''A Passion Play'' also contain such lyrics.

The band is named after an 18th-century agriculturist, though Ian Anderson ''hates'' the name. During their early days, their manager would change the name of the band so that they could be booked at places they had flopped at, and "Jethro Tull" was suggested by one of the manager's staff members who's a History geek; as Anderson put it, "Jethro Tull is the name we were using when we quit sucking."

* FoxHunting: In "Hunting Girl" (on the album ''Songs from the Wood"), the narrator encounters a fox-hunting aristocratic young lady whose horse had refused to jump a fence. The young lady turns out to some distinctly kinky tastes.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Their first album, ''This Was'', sounds like yet another {{Cream}} rip-off. This began to change with their second album, ''Stand Up'', when original guitarist Mick Abrahams left, and Ian Anderson started to monopolize the band's song-writing duties.
