* ApocalypseWow: 'Wheely Down' plays with this, to unnerving effect. * BadassBiker: The hero of '1952 Vincent Black Lightning'

* ApocalypseWow: 'Wheely Down' "Wheely Down" plays with this, to unnerving effect. * BadassBiker: The hero of '1952 "1952 Vincent Black Lightning'Lightning".

* ApocalypseWow: 'Wheely Down' ** His version of "Hey Joe" makes you realise that "Hey Joe" is an old-fashioned murder ballad -- even though he plays with this, to unnerving effect. * BadassBiker: The hero of '1952 Vincent Black Lightning'it like Hendrix, it ends up sounding like a Richard Thompson song.

* DrunkenSong: Subverted by 'God Loves A Drunk'. * DualMeaningChorus: Seen in 'Shane & Dixie'. The chorus 'Fame and Love will never die' is sung at first as a quote from the titular Shane as a total sincere expression of his beliefs. By the end of the song (When Shane has committed suicide and Dixie has got married to a journalist) the lyrics become ironic as Shane is totally forgotten.

* IntercourseWithYou: 'Hokey Pokey', a song supposedly about ice cream with lyrics such as 'Some like it round/Some like it fat/Some like a poke or two' * LyricalDissonance: Most times the downbeat nature of the music will match the lyrics, but he will often produce an upbeat tune such as 'Wall of Death' (a jolly number about a mutually destructive couple) 'Read About Love' (a upbeat song about a boy who ends up raping a girl through misconceptions about sex) and 'Bad Monkey' (a bouncy little ditty about drug addiction).

** 'Blackleg Miner' is an old-school pro-union anti-scab song, which culminates in the blackleg miner getting, well, killed.
