* FreezeFrameBonus: If you manage to wade through the insanity at the end of "I Was a Teenage Hand Model"'s LastNoteNightmare / EarRape, you will notice a phone call going on near the end. Most precisely, [[Foreshadowing Nick Oliveri calling Josh to tell him he's accepted the offer to join the band]].

* LastNoteNightmare: "I Think I Lost My Headache", "Make It wit Chu".

to:

* LastNoteNightmare: The band became specialists at this on their first albums. "I Think I Lost My Headache", "Make It wit Chu".Wit' Chu", [[EarRape "I Was a Teenage Hand Model"]], "In the Fade", "Tension Head"... There's A LOT of instances.


Added DiffLines:

** Check above on the EarRape entry for their biggest example at the end of their first album. No, really. Homme added LOUD SYNTH DISTORTIONS ''just in order to wake stoners up should they sleep while listening to his band''.

Added DiffLines:

* EarRape: The ending to "I Was a Teenage Hand Model" from the first album, definitely, with all those synth distortions. Josh did it on purpose; he intended it to wake up ''[[LastNoteNightmare any stoners who dared to sleep listening to his music]]''.
** You can say "You Can't Quit Me Baby" earlier in the same album does the same thing if you think about it.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Villains'' (the whole album) is mostly a solid 5. It's definitely the lightest QOTSA album in a while.


Added DiffLines:

** Interestingly, "The Evil Has Landed" has a line about not worrying about the glass being half full or half empty, but instead just drinking the whole glass and embracing the here and now. Almost throwing the concepts of both idealism and cynicism right out the window.

* FullFrontalAssault: Nick Olivieri, sometimes. It got him in hot water in Brazil, in 2001, where he was booked by the police for corruption of minors (they were playing at Rock in Rio, an all-ages festival, that year). He defended himself by saying he didn't know it was a crime there.



** "[[Film/ANewHope These Aren't the Droids You're Looking For]]".
