* GrievousBottleyHarm: Sort of. When Milhouse appears in Bart's fantasy of being a BritishRockstar and chastises him for how much he's changed, Bart angrily tells him to "slag off" and throws a bottle at him.

Added DiffLines:

* HalfwayPlotSwitch: The first half of the story is about Bart seeing a heavy metal concert and wanting to become a rockstar. The second half is about Otto trying to get a driver's license and get his job back, which has almost nothing to do with the first half.

* ITakeOffenseThatLastOne: Otto doesn't object to being called a bum, or being called out for clogging the bathroom sink, eating the last cookie, and getting collect calls. But don't you ''dare'' call him a sponge.

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Spinal Tap abandons the concert 20 minutes in after getting fed up with the various screwups of the stage crew - the scene hasnt been properly prepared and is full of water from its usual job as an ice rink, their inflatable giant devil prop isnt inflated, the lights dont come on as theyre supposed to, and one of the members gets hit in the eye with a stage laser.
* ShoutOut: Homer says of Otto "This is not ''{{Happy Days}}'' and he is not the Fonz." Otto then comes in and says "Hey, Mr. S!" like Fonzie would call Richie's father "Mr. C."

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Homer waits in the car for Bart and Milhouse while they're at the concert. We see him munching on chips and singing along to the radio, blissfully unaware of the riot police storming the arena outside his car window.

Added DiffLines:

* IncompetenceInc: The management of the venue where Spinal Tap performs. The place is usually a hockey rink, but the melted water hasn't been cleaned off the stage; the giant Devil balloon deflates during the show; the stage fans are set full blast instead of the medium setting the band requested; The stage lights aren't turned on at the band's cue; and one of the band members gets hit with the stage lasers. It's hard to blame the band for not wanting to put up with it anymore.
