* 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.

Ian Anderson laid Jethro Tull to rest in 2014, but the spirit of Tull goes on with Anderson and his solo band, who continue to tour and make records.

* {{Recut}}: A minor example - Steven Wilson's remix of "The Foot of Our Stairs" features an extra 30 seconds of music that he discovered and put back in with Ian's permission.

* DentedIron: While on the ''Under Wraps'' tour, Ian Anderson suffered numerous throat problems, including multiple cases of laryngitis. He returned to recording and touring after a couple years off (his first break since the band began touring regularly), but his voice had lost its trademark fullness. Also, he now sings in a limited range in a higher key then on his older material. Since 2012, he has had singer and actor Ryan O'Donell to sing certain parts for him, resulting in an entertaining VocalTagTeam.
