Whilst Screeching Weasel were starting out in [[TheWindyCity Chicago]], so were the likes of Music/GreenDay and Music/PansyDivision in Northern UsefulNotes/{{California}}, The Mr T Experience, The Music/{{Descendents}} and many more [[PopPunk pop-punk]] bands, and the genre declared TheNineties as a decade of their own.

* TakeThat: "Veronica Hates Me" was a pisstake on the song "Valerie Loves Me" by Material Issue. Dan Vapid claims it was in response to Jim Ellison, the singer of Material Issue, reportedly ripping them off at a show they played.

* InNameOnly: Sort of; ''My Brain Hurts'' was supposed to be the debut album of Gore Gore Girls, a side-project that Ben Weasel and John Jughead were starting right as Screeching Weasel initially ended. Lookout Records would only distribute the record if it was released under the Screeching Weasel name, which led to them reforming the band once again for it.

The band was a breath of fresh air at the time of their formation - the punk scene at the end of TheEighties was filled with overly serious {{straight edge}} and politically driven [[HardCorePunk hardcore]], with attention to catchy, bouncy melodies lagging. Screeching Weasel imitated the Ramones and were about as un-PC as you can get.

* ShoutOut: The bridge of "I Wanna Be Naked" is musically identical to the chorus of [[Music/TheRamones "I Wanna Be Sedated,"]] with the obvious lyrical change.

* IAmTheBand: Ben is the only consistent member.



* LampshadeHanging: Ben satirized many of the tropes of punk rock in his work; "DIY" is a good example of this.
