* AluminumChristmasTrees: The lyrics to "Punk Rock Girl" identify "California Dreamin'" as "a BeachBoys song" (when in fact it's by The Mamas And The Papas). This has been called a [[MisattributedSong misattribution]] made by either the band themselves or the characters in the song. However, the Beach Boys actually did release a CoverVersion of "California Dreamin'" as a single in 1985, so their version could have been playing on a jukebox a few years later when "Punk Rock Girl" was written.

* {{Retraux}}: "If The Kids Could Git Together" was newly released in 2015, but was meant to sound like it was recorded thirty years earlier and had just recently been uncovered. It's their side from a supposed "lost" split 7 inch with Philadelphia HardcorePunk group Flag Of Democracy, who pulled the same thing for their side of the record. The black and white artwork was [[StylisticSuck meant to look like something quickly thrown together with an old photocopier]], keeping with the look of flyers and no-budget singles of the time.

* RunningGag: For a while, they had one with Dave Blood dressing in drag in their music videos - He played a waitress in "Punk Rock Girl", a female alien in "The Secret Of Life", and a go-go dancer in "Smokin' Banana Peels".
