* AsTheGoodBookSays: Nearly every song contains some paraphrase of a Bible passage. And in case anyone doesn't get the reference, the reference was always printed above the lyrics in the liner notes. In one instance, lack of familiarity with [[http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans+6:6&version=KJV Romans 6:6 in the King James Version specifically]] made it impossible to understand that the song is [[IThoughtItMeant not about a man killing his father]]. Never ones to shy away from controversy, these guys.

* SubliminalSeduction: Parodied twice: ''More Power to Ya'' featured a conspicuous backwards message between two tracks -- "What are ya lookin' for the Devil for, when ya oughtta be lookin' for the Lord?" -- and "Witch Hunt", a song directed towards the accusers, whose bridge included backmasked lines that turned out to just be the spoken lines from the film ''TheWizardOfOz''.

* {{Awesome McCoolname}}: Greg X. Volz (one cash-in compilation by their previous label miswrote it as "Grex X. Volz", which is arguably even cooler).
