* {{Badass}}: Most of his "character" songs were about badasses:
** "Roller Derby Queen" - "She might be nasty, she might be fat, but I never met a person who would tell her that."
** "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown" - "Badder than old Film/KingKong, meaner than a junkyard dog."
** "You Don't Mess Around With Jim" - "You don't tug on Franchise/{{Superman}}'s cape, you don't spit into the wind, you don't pull the mask of the ol' [[Franchise/TheLoneRanger Lone Ranger]], and you don't mess around with Jim."
*** Played with in that the latter two were both taken down at the end of the song, Leroy by an angry husband and Jim by a country boy whose money Jim had hustled away.
