* CharacterFilibuster: Though not going to unbelievable extremes, as many other examples of [[CharacterFilibuster filibusters]] do. The protagonist of ''... Is A Real Boy'' goes into a six-minute-long rant about know-it-all intellectual types in the final track, "Admit It!"

* CreatorBreakdown: Max went a little crazy during and after high school. (He's happily married to Sherri Dupree-Bemis of Eisley and off the drugs now).



* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: All of their pre-IARB music. ''Menorah/Majora'', ''Baseball'', ''Junior Varsity'', ''For Sale'', and the dormroom demos are all floating around out there and pretty easy to find if you know where to look or who to ask.
** As of 2013, most of the material was compiled in the 3-disc set ''All My Friends Are Enemies: Early Rarities''.

Say Anything is a "vaguely indie punk-pop" style Music/{{Emo}} band composed of frontman Max Bemis, drummer Coby Linder, and their [[IAmTheBand revolving group]] [[RevolvingDoorBand of bandmates]]. Like the origin of any unlikely hero, Say Anything was forged from conflict: a feisty young punk band from Hollywood formed during the birth of "hipster" elitism, always out of place. In that day any group of rich kids with a penchant for the Music/VelvetUnderground and enough five o'clock shadow could be paid millions of dollars to be walking billboards for "anti-culture" consumerism. Say Anything shunted pretension, choosing initially to play sincere and nervous rock music and opening locally for the touring bands they closely identified with (The Weakerthans, RiloKiley, The Promise Ring). A few years passed and songwriter Max Bemis continued to feel alienated from the collegiate "scene;" He witnessed young rebels devolve into the counter-culture clichés they sought to avoid in the first place, "reverse psychology" victims of homogenized humanity. By identifying this mass-marketed "hip lie," Bemis found his "arch villain" and, imbued with purpose, Say Anything's music became a new monster - as theatrically pop-based as it was angular and dark.
