* BigRockEndingBigRockEnding: Often, to the point they finish concerts with their biggest use of this trope, "I Got Mine".
* BreakUpSong: ''Brothers'' and ''Turn Blue'' are filled with them, as each of the two was experiencing a divorce (Carney in the former, Auerbach in the latter).
* BrokenPedestal: They were asked to induce Music/SteveMiller onto the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame, being big fans. Given he was overtly critical about the Hall and didn't care about who they were ([[http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/entertainment/music/sdut-steve-miller-rock-hall-of-fame-interview-2016apr14-htmlstory.html Miller himself later]] said he wanted his induction by friend Music/EltonJohn), [[http://www.rollingstone.com/music/features/black-keys-we-regret-inducting-steve-miller-after-rock-hall-insults-20160413 they regretted the experience, leaving even before Miller's angry speech.]]

** According to early reviews, ''Turn Blue'' turns back towards PsychedelicRock while also leaning toward RapRock.

* PunBasedTitle: ''Turn Blue'' is not only a reference to their Blues influence, but how a CreatorBreakdown inspired the whole thing.

* CloudCookoolander: Patrick Carney - celebrated musician, veteran of the garage rock scene, [[http://instagram.com/officerpatrickcarney/ curator of an Instagram that goes out of its way to be as weird as possible]]. If you didn't know who he was, you'd assume he was a FYAD veteran rather than a famous drummer.

* CreatorBreakdown: ''Brothers''



** ''[[BreakthroughHit Brothers]]'' emphasized elements of soul music while rolling back ''Attack And Release's'' psychadelia somewhat.

* ''Blakroc'' (2009)


Added DiffLines:

* AWildRapperAppears: They don't normally do this, with one major exception: ''Blakroc''. The entire album is ''built'' on this concept, turning the normal trope UpToEleven.
