* {{Anvilicious}}/SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: They don’t write lyrics, but their music just ''feels'' undeniably political. Sometimes the samples included with the songs are political in nature as well.
* ArchivePanic: They don’t have that much officially released material, but if you want to start going through all the live recordings of them that are available (which is recommended since they tend to début new songs in live performances years before they’re given official releases), ''good luck''.
* AwesomeMusic: ''All of it''. However, each album has one or two tracks that stand out even above the band’s usual high quality:
** ''F♯ A♯ ∞'' - “Providence”
** ''Slow Riot for New Zerø Kanada'' - ''Both of them''. There’s a good reason this is the highest rated EP on RYM.
** ''Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven'' - “Sleep”
** ''Yanqui U.X.O.'' - “Motherfucker=Redeemer”
** ''’Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend!'' - “Mladic”
** ''‘Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress’'' - “Piss Crowns Are Trebled”
* BrokenBase: ''‘Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress’'' is shaping up to be this with some fans calling it one of their better albums and other fans calling it one of their worst.
* CrossesTheLineTwice / CrowningMomentOfFunny: The opening of “Antennas to Heaven” (“Moya Sings Baby-O”).
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Blaise Bailey Finnegan III’s rant at a judge is this for many fans: “You think you’re God because you have a robe and you can put people up the goddamn river for twenty years? Well, you’re not!” Of course, for others it may verge into {{Narm}}.
** The issue of the man’s “poem” actually being mostly lyrics [[OlderThanTheyThink ripped off from the band]] Music/IronMaiden is also a bit divisive, since it makes one question whether this story is even true.
* EpicRiff: “The Dead Flag Blues” motif, repeated at the beginning of “East Hastings” as well.

* FaceOfTheBand: Even though he’s not the frontman in the traditional sense (and has repeatedly disclaimed the r¸ôle), Efrim Menuck is the member that seems to get the most recognition. It’s no doubt a contributing factor that he’s been by far the member who has interacted most with the press.

* FridgeLogic: In the midst of his interview, Blaise Bailey Finnegan III repeats a story in which he apparently said “I don’t repeat myself for nobody” to a judge. Come again?

* MemeticMutation: The whole monologue at the beginning of “The Dead Flag Blues”. The intro to “Sleep” as well.

Added DiffLines:

** "Mladic" has an extremely heavy, almost stoner metal-esque guitar riff that gets faster and more intense as the song continues.

* MagnumOpus: ''Lift Your Skinny Fists'' by consensus, but ''F♯ A♯ ∞'' and ''Slow Riot'' are both close.
