* PeripheryDemographic: Despite many of their songs covering very adult content, they have a lot of teenaged fans, due to them having done a song for Film/SkyHigh, which many of those teenagers grew up with, and because they did the theme song for WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb, which has a PeriperyDemographic of its own. Lampshaded in "Friends Chicks Guitars."

Added DiffLines:

* CoveredUp:
** Raise your hand if you thought "1985" was originally by them.
** "Stacy's Mom" managed to be a case of this ''before they covered it''. (As in, everyone thought they did it when it was really Fountains Of Wayne.)

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: A lot of their songs count, but special mention goes to their cover of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXbgSMT-0j4 London Bridge]]
--->'''Erick''': [''singing''] "HOW COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOME?"\\
'''Jaret''': [''speaking''] I don't know.\\
'''Erick''': "HOW COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOME?"\\
'''Jaret''': Erick, I don't know, I'm sorry.\\
'''Erick''': "HOW COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOME?"\\
'''Jaret''': I have no earthly idea.\\
'''Erick''': "HOW COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOME?"\\
'''Jaret''': Erick, I'm confused, seriously.\\
'''Erick''': "HOW COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOME?"\\
'''Jaret''': ''Stop asking me that''!\\
'''Erick''': "HOW COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOME?"\\
'''Jaret''': '''I DON'T KNOW'''!
** "Here's Your Freakin' Song" deserves special mention too. It's exactly as [[StylisticSuck deliberately unproffesional]] and [[AntiLoveSong break-up-y]] as it sounds.



* TearJerker: "Goodbye Friend."
** "Almost", while being [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hilarious]], somehow manages to also be pretty dang sad.
-->''I know we had our problems/I can't remember one...''
** "If You Come Back to Me"

** By and large the band outright defies this as most of their songs are incredibly upbeat in nature, and even the angsty ones are noted to have a silver lining to them.
