* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: ''Rise of the Orge'', despite being the band's biography apparently hasn't been printed since, since no book store seems have it and Amazon prices range from ''70'' to ''''''100 bucks''''''. Even ''worse'' on Ebay.

* [[SoMyKidsCanWatch So My Kids Can Listen]]: The exact reason why Bobby Womack came out of retirement to sing on "Stylo" (his daughter specifically nudged him to work with Albarn). The song revitalized public interest in Womack, leading to his first album in 18 years.

* VisualPun: The pirate aircraft attacking Noodle's ship in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04mfKJWDSzI Melancholy Hill]] are for all intents and purposes F4U Corsairs with open cockpits. Incidentally, a corsair is another name for a pirate, although the pun may not have been intentional.

* DevelopmentGag: Noodle was going to be the same age as the rest of the band, before being redesigned as a child. The original design was later recycled for Paula Cracker, who in lore was the original guitarist before being quickly replaced by Noodle.

* HeyItsThatVoice: Well it starts from [[Music/{{Blur}} Damon Albarn]] (the co-creator of the band and singing voice for 2-D -- in essence, Albarn is the band's lead singer) and goes from there. The guest performers on some of their songs include Music/DeLaSoul ("Feel Good Inc.", "Superfast Jellyfish"), Del tha Funkee Homosapien ("Clint Eastwood", "Rock the House", from ''[[Music/GorillazAlbum Gorillaz]]''), Creator/ShaunRyder of The Happy Mondays ("DARE", from ''Music/DemonDays''), Bootie Brown of Music/ThePharcyde ("Dirty Harry", from ''Music/DemonDays''), Creator/DennisHopper ("Fire Coming Out of the Monkey's Head", from ''Music/DemonDays''), Creator/BobbyWomack ("Stylo"), Mark E. Smith of Music/TheFall ("Glitter Freeze"), [[Music/TheClash Mick Jones and Paul Simonon]] ("Plastic Beach") and Music/LouReed ("Some Kind of Nature").
* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: An inversion, for singer/2D voice Damon Albarn. A manga writer in Japan decided to name his protagonist [[Manga/SoulEater Maka Albarn]] after one of his favorite musicians. In the animated adaptation, her theme song is a punk-rockish, closely resembling the style of many Gorillaz songs.

* AscendedFanon: [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_Mañana_(song) Wikipedia's article]] on the song ''El Mañana'' noted that the helicopters in the video didn't match the ones from ''Feel Good Inc.'', and proposed an explanation for it. This article was quoted in ''Rise of the Ogre'', with Murdoc replying, "Er... yeah. That sounds about right."

* NoExportForYou:
** Gorillaz is known to leave off several tracks for each album either as secret bonuses or as incentive to buy additional [=EPs=] or special-edition albums. Usually, however, at the end of a phase a corresponding B-side album is released containing these songs. Unfortunately, the [[AllThereInTheManual supplemental material]] plays this completely straight.
** Besides this, there are often tracks added into the release of certain albums only in certain areas, with the Japanese release of each studio album getting 1 or 2 songs that otherwise wouldn't be available until the singles or B-side collection gets released.
