* SongOfSongTitles: The sub-titles of the mini-epic "Roisin Dubh: Black Rose (A Rock Legend)" reference the original Irish/Scottish/English folk melodies the track contains.
** Well, kind of. The track listing gives the tunes as "Shenandoah", "Will You Go Lassie Go", "Danny Boy" and "The Mason's Apron". They play, and Phil sings, most of the first verse of "Shenandoah", followed by a line from "Go Lassie Go", then the guitars play a soaring instrumental version of the second half of the verse of "Danny Boy". The first of the really fast guitar part is not, by any stretch of the imagination, "The Mason's Apron". The second half of it is a well-known reel, "Rakish Paddy".

* MoralityBallad: Averted. For example, the song "Suicide" is about a murder that goes reported as a suicide due to lazy and incompetent police work. Case number 81 remains unsolved, presumably forever.

** "S&M" tries to be this about BDSM, but it makes the male protagonist a violent sleazebag who gets aroused by sexual violence, so it's a CluelessAesop.



* MyspeldRokband: In a sense. It was named as a pun on "tin lizzy", but with "tin" mispelt as "thin", a joke on how Dubliners would pronounce "thin" as "tin".
* NewSoundAlbum: Frequently done, the most significant of these was Fighting as it signalled the beginning of their most well-regarded period.
* ObligatoryBondageSong: "S&M" from the ''Black Rose'' album.

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Musically as opposed to personally, Scott Gorham. His guitar style, especially when soloing, is very strange, being almost devoid of the usual clichés, and relies on imagination and quirky phrasing rather than speed. This is why he was usually not the star guitarist in the band, but also why he was more essential than those who were; he was also, after founders Lynott and Downey, its third-longest-serving member.

* LoopingLines: According to co-producer Tony Visconti, 75% of ''Live and Dangerous'' isn't really live, because the band was usually at least a bit drunk on stage and the shortage of coherent recorded performances meant that they had to record it live in the studio and add crowd noise later. The band's manager Chris O'Donnell disputes this, saying that while some parts (mostly guitar solos) got looped in the studio, it's 75% live. Guitarist Brian Robertson insists that the whole thing is live, and that overdubs would have been impossible because of the lack of acoustic separation. The only thing everyone agrees on is that it's one of the band's best albums.

[[note]]When a band records live, chances are that any given mic will record more than just the source it's supposed to record. If a part is played badly or contains obvious clams, it will therefore be potentially audible on more than one track. Overdubbing that part won't work, because the original part will be audible in the background of other tracks. The only solution is either acoustic separation, in which each track contains only the instrument or voice it's supposed to contain and which is impossible to achieve in a live recording, or else re-recording the whole performance.[[/note]] The only thing everyone agrees on is that it's one of the band's best albums.
