* LongRunnerLineup: Type 1 + Type 2. The original line-up of Mark Arm, Steve Turner, Dan Peters, and Matt Lukin, lasted 13 years (1988-2001). Lukin retired from the band and was replaced by Guy Maddison, who has remained with the band since then.
* {{Mean Character Nice Actor}} : Despite the angsty lyrics and the snotty, aggressive vocals, many interviewers have pointed out that Mark Arm is a very amiable and friendly dude.

** The title of "FDK (Fearless Doctor Killer)" is a nod to BadBrains' "FVK (Fearless Vampire Killers)" - and by extension, the movie of the same name.

* SingerNamedrop: In "Freak Momma", a song featuring Music/{{Sir Mix A Lot}}, Mix-A-Lot works the band name into a pun: "I wanna get you in the mud, honey".

to:

** At the end of "When Tomorrow Hits," you can hear Mark softly intone the words "that's the lowdown." This is most likely an acknowledgment that the riff the song is based around is a slowed-down version of an old Music/{{Wire}} [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6Ytde6tmkQ song]].

* SelfDeprecation: The PerformanceVideo for "Suck You Dry", where they're playing a sparsely attended "Ten Years Of Grunge" event at a small bar in 1998 (the song was released in 1992). The audience is mainly sitting by the bar looking bored, while the one apparent diehard fan in attendance pogos and slam-dances in front of the stage by himself.

* ToiletHumour: The [[NoTitle untitled]] fifteenth track on ''Piece Of Cake'' consists of the band playing a simple repeating riff for 30 seconds, with fart sound effects (possibly achieved via WhoopeeCushion) played in time with the music. The final fart sound effect then segues into the start of "Ritzville".
* VisualPun: The artwork to ''Piece Of Cake'' includes a cake slice sitting in a urinal... Thus, a literal "urinal cake".

* SpringtimeForHitler: When they were asked to write a song for a specific scene of the movie ''With Honors'', they offered an instrumental outtake, but the studio insisted they submit a song with lyrics. So they added some very repetitive throwaway lyrics to the song, gave it the TitleOnlyChorus of "Run Shithead Run", and sent in both the instrumental and vocal versions, figuring this would result in the instrumental being used after all. Instead, "Run Shithead Run" appeared complete with vocals both in the movie and on the soundtrack album... However, the band also noted that they never got another soundtrack offer again.
