* BadassBoast: "Richie Dagger's Crime" is a combination of this, a few lines from a poem called ''Astrid'' Darby had written before the Germs began, and a tribute of sorts to DavidBowie (more specifically, his tendency to switch alter-egos).

* DrivenToSuicide: Darby, via heroin overdose. Fans have multiple theories why he killed himself; according to "Wild-Eyed Boy: The Darby Crash Story", Darby's sexuality played a factor in his suicide (especially with bands with homophobic banter and lyrics like Music/{{Fear}} and the macho jock mentality permeating the scene); ''What We Do is Secret'' mentioned a five year plan for RuleOfDrama and as a DavidBowie shout-out, and there's always the camp that claims he never meant to overdose.

The band released one album - 1979's ''(GI)'', produced by Music/JoanJett - before vocalist Darby Crash died of an intentional heroin overdose on December 7th, 1980, whose death was overshadowed by the murder of Music/JohnLennon a day later. In 2005, the band reunited with Shane West on vocals to mixed reception among the punk community (the most vocal of those who disliked the reunion include [[Music/{{NOFX}} Fat Mike]] and [[Music/DeadKennedys Jello Biafra]]), and a film featuring Shane as Darby Crash titled ''Film/WhatWeDoIsSecret'' came out in 2008.

** Briefly averted by the introduction to "No God", where Pat Smear manages a near-flawless replication of a few seconds of the introduction to "Roundabout" by {{Music/Yes}} (which comes off as surprising, unless you didn't know that "Roundabout" was the first song he'd learned how to play on guitar)...and then the proper song starts; it's much more in line with their usual sloppy ThreeChordsAndTheTruth style.

* CatchPhrase: Darby would frequently utter "gimme" as opposed to asking for something. "Gimme a dollar", "Gimme a beer", and "Gimme a ride to the Whiskey", among other variations of that phrase were frequently heard by those in Darby's circle.
