* AwesomeMusic: Lots of it, with ''Music/SomethingAnything?'' and ''A Wizard, a True Star'' being frequent contenders for MagnumOpus. The Beatles parodies on Utopia's ''Deface the Music'' are such effective pastiches that the track "I Just Want to Touch You" was rejected for inclusion on the soundtrack to the film ''Roadie'' because the filmmakers were afraid of getting sued for plagiarism.

* EarWorm * EpicRiff
to:
* EarWorm EarWorm: Nearly everything he ever released, even including his TrueArtIsIncomprehensible ProgressiveRock epics. If you make a playlist with his songs on it and listen to it for a few hours there is no telling what hooks you'll have stuck in your head when you finish. * EpicRiffEpicRiff: Again, many of his songs.

Added DiffLines:
* EarWorm * EpicRiffTrueArtIsIncomprehensible: Some of his PsychedelicRock and ProgressiveRock material can get this way, but probably none of it more than "A Treatise on Cosmic Fire", a thirty-five minute {{instrumental}} consisting mostly of Rundgren's synthesizer.
