* {{Mondegreen}}: [[invoked]] YMMV aside, a few are present in prominent official or semi-official places:
** Apparantly, the lyrics booklet with the Japanese release of ''Alternative'' makes a few (e.g. "I'm virgin, I'm ugly" rather than "verging on ugly").
** PSB admit that they weren't sure what the "Go west" line rendered in their version as "the hustling, rustling just to feed" was actually supposed to be (it's apparantly supposed to be "the hustling, rustling of the feet"). It isn't nearly as bad as the demo, which renders the previous line ("Without rush, and the pace back east") as "We'll outrun all the power degrees" - it would seem that they did some more deciphering after recording the demo.

** Actually, ''every'' music video from ''Very''. They mix together bizarre outfits and backgrounds done with early CGI all in bright garish colours, presumably just because they could since they rarely have any connection to the actual song lyrics.

* ContinuityNod: The 2006 video for "I'm With Stupid" had the guys from ''LittleBritain'' parodying the 1993 videos for "Go West" and "Can You Forgive Her?"

Despite popular misconceptions due to Tennant's typical dry delivery, their music is not inherently ironic. While they have done a few ironic songs ("Opportunities"), a surprising proportion of their songs are honestly emotional. Another interesting bit about their music is that Neil often plays a character in their songs, and not necessarily a male character. In "I Made My Excuses and Left", for example, he sings as Cynthia Lennon walking in on [[Music/TheBeatles John]] and [[YokoOno Yoko]] and realizing her marriage is over.

** Eminem: Due to Mr. Mathers' rampant homophobia, they recorded "The Night I Fell In Love", a sweet AffectionateParody about a college kid having a one-night stand with an Eminem CaptainErsatz. (It could be about any rapper, but the lyrics reference "Stan", a single of his, and Dr. Dre, his producer.) Eminem responded rather less maturely than U2, and narrated running them over with his car in one song.
