* HilariousInHindsight: "Poparazzi" was written to make fun of the glut of teenybopper pop artists gaining popularity at around the turn of the century. Music/MandyMoore turned out to be a fan of their music, which gained enough exposure through her film ''AWalkToRemember'' to score the band a mainstream record deal... and the rest is history.

* TheCatchPhraseCatchesOn: "Sorry, I'm awesome." [[note]]Originated in their 6th podcast, when Drew Shirley randomly looked into the camera and uttered the phrase; it was a literal {{CMOA}}, and the fans loved it so much that he ended up adopting it as his catch phrase.[[/note]]

* UncannyValley: At the beginning of "Faust, Midas, and Myself", an old man (implied to be Satan) is described like this: "Something in his eyes, something in his laugh, something in his voice made my skin crawl off."
