* ParanoiaFuel: "Hide Away Folk Family", "Where Your Eyes Don't Go", "Someone Keeps Moving My Chair", "It's Not My Birthday", "Hall Of Heads", "A Self Called Nowhere", "The Bells Are Ringing", "Rat Patrol", "Older", "Ant", "Bastard Wants To Hit Me", "I'm Impressed", "Can't Keep Johnny Down", "Black Ops," "Aaa", "I Am Alone"... That's a song off of each (non-children's) studio album (and at least one compilation). Yeah, it's one of the band's favorite tropes, and at least half of those have serious LyricalDissonance. "Someone Keeps Moving My Chair" is downright ''upbeat''.

* PeripheryDemographic: The band were popular with kids since their early days, even when they were playing ostensibly "adult" Rock music. Come the TurnOfTheMillenium and their album ''No!'', they started making music specifically for kids and families.
