* {{Tuckerization}}: "that Jonny Wurster kid" in "Stuart" is named after Jon Wurster, the drummer for Music/{{Superchunk}} and a friend of the band.

** "Life Is Shit" is for the most part exactly what you'd expect from the title... And then the last verse features completely sincere lyrics about the pain of missing departed loved ones.

** "Tiny Town" included a now obscure dig at HardcorePunk band The F.U.'s - the band in question received fan backlash for pro-conservative lyrics on their album ''My America'', thus explaining why the bigoted narrators of the song "hate punks" but "love the F.U.'s",

** In the latter part of "Now Everybody's Me," the narrator [[ItMakesSenseInContext fears he's going to turn into a lesbian left-handed midget eskimo albino.]] Towards the end, he feels himself shrinking, gets the urge to build an igloo, and feels his skin turning white and eyes turning red... but only panics to the point of [[CarefulWithThatAxe screaming]] [[BigNo "NOOOOOOOOOO!"]] when he realizes he feels like buying a Music/SuzanneVega album.

** "The Fez" includes the lyric "There's a time for taking and a time for giving / but ripping off the Music/ButtholeSurfers is how we make our living" - fittingly, the song itself is sort of done InTheStyleOf Butthole Surfers. The same song also parodies lyrics from Eddie Cochran's "Summertime Blues" ("I'd like to help you son, but you smell like a goat") and JimiHendrix's "Purple Haze" ("'scuse me while I puke and die").

* ParodyNames: Drummer "Dean Clean" and lead guitarist "Joe Jack Talcum" are gentle parodies of punk names like [[Music/SexPistols Johnny Rotten, Sid Vicious,]] etc. For the album ''Soul Rotation'', Rodney Anonymous switched his stage name to HP Hovercraft, punning on HPLovecraft.

* 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.

** And the old man in "Epic Tales of Love and Adventure" who explains how "doctors and lawyers and bankers and priests are controlled by UFOs!"
