** Another Bush protest song was 'The Idiot Son Of An Asshole." As you can imagine, this one is a bit more on-the-nose and was only ever performed live.

* ApatheticCitizens: "Franco Un-American" is from the perspective of who's been largely apathetic to the greater issues of the world like global warming, animal rights and corrupt governments, only to become shocked by the damage they've done and vow to no longer sit idly by and let such things happen.



* DigitalPiracyIsOkay / DigitalPiracyIsEvil: Parodied in a hidden advertisement for ''The War On Errorism'' on their EP ''Regaining Unconsciousness'', which ends with El Hefe encouraging the listener to go pick up the album at their nearest independent record store, followed by a very fast, half-whispered "Also available for free on the internet."

* AccentuateTheNegative: The liner notes for their greatest hits album, ''The Greatest Songs Ever Written (By Us)'' contain clippings of the most negative reviews the band has ever received, including one from a critic who claimed that a bite on his privates from a deer tick he'd recently gotten was pleasant compared to the album he was reviewing.

** During the Bush administration the band noticeably became more political in their songs. Fat Mike also produced two compilations in 2004 entitled ''Rock Against Bush'' for his label Fat Wreck Chords.

** During the Bush administration the band noticeably became more political in their songs. ''The War On Errorism,'' as the title might imply, was mostly made up of these. Fat Mike also produced two compilations in 2004 entitled ''Rock Against Bush'' for his label Fat Wreck Chords.

** RefugeInAudacity: Quite a few songs, but "She's Nubs" off of "The War on Errorism" is a fairly good example. The song depicts a woman who has no arms or legs that enjoys going to punk shows (and who turned down Fat Mike's invitation to go hang out before being carried away in someone's backpack), despite the difficulties she faces in her life. The real life Nubs (a Toronto woman named Talli - who has legs and a job) [[http://www.nofxwiki.net/wiki/index.php?title=Nubs_by_punknews.org absolutely loves the song, and says that she wouldn't have turned down Fat Mike in real life]]. The kicker? The ''only'' thing she was offended at about the song was a random line about her inability to "give good head".

* BestialityIsDepraved[=/=]ComtemptibleCover: The cover to ''Heavy Petting Zoo'' depicts a man cuddling in a...rather interesting way with a lamb. Then there's the cover of ''Eating Lamb'', depicting him in a 69 position...make note that the album has no references to bestiality, nor animals or zoos in general, at all.
