* JapanTakesOverTheWorld: Mocked in his 1991 single "Workin' for the Japanese":
-->Were all working for the Japanese\\
Little cars and color TVs\\
Sending all our money overseas\\
To the Eastern sphere\\
One day were gonna lose our roots\\
Wear Oriental jeans and boots\\
And drink nothing but Kawasaki sake, Honda wine, and Mitsubishi light beer\\

* MisplacedRetribution: In "The Ballad of the Blue Cyclone", when Ray's friend Virgil threw a chair into the wrestling ring, the titular Blue Cyclone beat up ''Ray''. Granted, he thought Ray did it, but it was still unfair, especially since Virgil had gotten to the safety of the car and locked Ray out.

* ButtMonkey: The narrator in "Deerslayer" was perhaps the biggest one in all of Ray's songs. After supposedly accidentally killing a deer that ran into his car, he decided to take it home. Turns out that it was only stunned and upon waking up, it trashed his car. To make matters worse, a pack of hunting dogs that had been chasing the deer attacked him and trapped him on top of a telephone booth. Finally, after the police he had called arrived, [[CavalryBetrayal they arrested him]] [[MiscarriageOfJustice for having a deer out of season]] [[FelonyMisdemenor and was given thirty days]], during which he lost his job and his wife left him.
