* DownerEnding: "Lost in Hollywood"; "Soldier Side".
** On that note, all of their albums end depressingly. Their self titled debut closes with "P.L.U.C.K.", a song about young men forced to join the army in the wake of the Armenian genocide. ''Toxicity'' ends with "Aerials", a song about how selfish the human race is, and its hidden track is a tribal rendition of Armenian church hymn "Der Voghormya" (God Have Mercy). In addition, ''Steal This Album!'' ends with "Streamline", a song about a man not being there for someone when they were on their death bed,

* Humor: For as moody and intense at their music could get, they tinged it with a madcap sense of humor. Examples include:
** "Bounce", a song about pogo sticks.
** "Chic N' Stu", a song mocking advertising through pizza jingles.
** "Cigaro", which is about penis size.
** "This Cocaine Makes Me Feel Like I'm On This Song" (title is self-demonstrating).
** "Old School Hollywood", Daron's synth song about a charity baseball game he participated in.
** "She's Like Heroin", which is about transvestism.

** They were kings of this with the singles they released, especially the choruses. Using their standard hard rock as a baseline you had "Sugar" (which veered into nonsense comedy), "Chop Suey!" (which had a Middle-Eastern tinge), and "B.Y.O.B." (which veered into reggae).
