Added DiffLines:

* SeriousBusiness: Another trademark of the band. Many of their songs involve taking something mundane or silly to incredibly absurd lengths of seriousness. Such as:
** "Who Says We're Wack": Being called 'wack' is, to the group at least, one of the most devastating insults imaginable.
** "Santana DVX": In which a the band celebrates a champagne released from a vineyard owned by Music/CarlosSantana thusly:
--->On the seventh day, it's been said God rests\\
But on the eighth day, he made the DVX

** The trio are playing PunchOut in ''Incredibad''. The ending of the song ("Stop stop stop! [Crash] Surprise, everyone!") is also a reference to the ending of Music/{{NWA}}'s "100 Miles and Runnin'".

* MundaneMadeAwesome: "Like A Boss" is mostly the boss talking about how he does stuff like a boss.

to:

* MundaneMadeAwesome: Something of a speciality of the group. Many of their songs involve giving a bombastic R&B/Hip-Hop/Pop treatment to subject matter that is usually quite mundane:
**
"Like A Boss" is mostly the boss talking about how he does stuff like a boss.boss. It starts off fairly ordinary ("Talk to Corporate LIKE A BOSS!") but ends up going to some rather strange places ("Turn into a jet LIKE A BOSS!")
** "I'm On A Boat" is basically an epic set of beats combined with lyrics describing how the group is, well, on a boat.
** "I Just Had Sex" gives the full-on power ballad treatment to two guys rejoicing over what appear to have been some very underwhelming sexual encounters.
** "Lazy Sunday" treats two guys going to see ''Film/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe'' as if it were a hardcore gangster rap about planning a heist and indulging in conspicuous over-consumption with the proceeds.
