* AffectionateParody: Mostly of country music cliches, but they also poke fun at TheBeachBoys in "Hey Little Minivan," mariachi music in "Buenos Dias, Budweiser," among others.

Their politically-themed songs tend to have a liberal leaning, which poke fun at conservative politicians (''The Ballad of Ronald Reagan,'' ''Gingrich the Newt'') or satirize current political issues (''Go Ahead and Die''). All the groupís members contribute to songwriting, but the two principal songwriters have been Card and Deisler. Cardís lyrics often rely on clever word plays, double entendres, and off-beat but sometimes poignant narratives about ordinary life. His most frequent subject matter is love, especially comically forlorn yearning. (''The Dogs, they Really Miss You''). Deislerís lyrics, in contrast, focus on the existentially absurd, often combining absurdly unexpected pairings (such as making Richard Petty the subject of a surreal Luis Buñuel film) as well as pitiable, sometimes lovable characters bewilderingly unaware of their own absurdity and oddness (''Wendell the Uncola Man''). The band often pokes fun at country music clichés, for example the "we were happier when we were poor" trope exaggerated into absurdity in "''Love in a Refrigerator Box''". Deisler's lyrics also marry comedy with a remarkably dark vision of humanity and its future (''Bonfire of the Inanities'').
