* ValuesDissonance: The entire character of [[QueerPeopleAreFunny Billy "Fancy Pants."]] At the time, the only one who had any real umbrage with it was the screenwriter, who is openly bi and has a gay father, but general audiences wouldn't had minded. Over a decade later, it comes off as Dewey picking on him. The musical doesn't necessarily fix this, but at the very least depicts Billy as a character and not a punchline (helps that it's on Broadway, as LGBTQ-friendly a venue as you can imagine).

*WereStillRelevantDammit: The "parents all up in your Facebook" line from "Stick It To The Man". Children of that age in the mid 2010s would ''not'' likely be using Facebook (rather, they would use mobile apps like Snapchat or Instagram).

** A highlight of the soundtrack is Music/LedZeppelin's ''Immigrant Song''. Not just because its an awesome song, but the sheer fact that it's in the movie is a CMOA for the cast and crew, as they were able to convince the band (who is famously stingy about licensing their music) to let them use the song.

** The additional backstory the kids get leads to a real tear-worthy musical number in act one, as we see them all trying to be heard by their too-busy, overbearing, or unaware parents in "If Only You Would Listen". This song gets an even more tear-jerking reprise in the second act, as the kids, trying to get Dewey to come with them to the Battle of the Bands, tell him that he was the first one to really hear them.

And it's only taken him three weeks to achieve this!

* MemeticMutation: There's plenty of photos with Caitlin Hale's (Marta) face next to Eric Per Sullivans's who played Dewey on ''TvSeries/{{Malcolm in the Middle}}'' simply due to the uncanny resemblence the two have.

Added DiffLines:

** The stage musical assuages this somewhat: Patty takes huge issues with Dewey, but she doesn't take issue with Ned standing up for himself and is even turned on by Ned's rock star persona once she sees it. The fact that Dewey attains a music teacher job probably would help with the rent situation.
