* IndecipherableLyrics: "Pork Soda" (the title track of said album) consists of this is ranting form. The CD's liner notes omit the lyrics to this song, and barring the ACapella chorus they are completely unintelligible - if one looks them up on any lyrics site, only the first few lines of each verse is written down, and those lyrics make no sense.

* BlessedAreTheCheesemakers: ''Sailing the Seas of Cheese''. The packaging of their GreatestHitsAlbum, ''They Can't All Be Zingers'', also resembles a package of processed cheese slices. Note, more generally, how most of their album titles involve a reference to food.

* SubvertedRhymeEveryOccasion: "The Air is Getting Slippery" does this with setting up a PrecisionFStrike, before instantly subverting it into the pre-chorus, "Forgive me if I hesitate". [[spoiler:At least until the ending.]]

Primus' music is incredibly hard to describe, to the point that it is the only band to have its own [=ID3=] tag in Winamp[[note]]Not that this is saying much, given Winamp's notorious inaccuracy with genre tags[[/note]]. The closest general description would be "alternative rock/funk metal" or the band's own suggestion of "psychedelic polka", with main influences including [[Music/GeorgeClinton Parliament-Funkadelic]], Music/TheResidents, Music/FrankZappa, Music/{{Metallica}} and Music/{{Rush}}. Additionally, their initial fans came from the Bay Area thrash scene due to opening gigs for Testament and Exodus, among others, and Larry [=LaLonde=] was previously in seminal thrash metal bands Possessed and Blind Illusion, the latter of which also included Claypool.

* FunkMetal: One of the genre's key bands. It's both an accurate and somehow [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly completely inadequate]] description of their sound...
