** His song "Dog Eat Dog," a style parody of Talking Heads about the absolute joy of working in an office, ''could'' be seen as a riff on ''Film/OfficeSpace'' (it even includes the lyrics "Sometimes I tell myself/This is not my beautiful stapler!")....if it weren't for the fact that the song was part of his 1986 album ''Polka Party!''—five years before Creator/MikeJudge even created the character of Milton Waddams in his animated short films.

** One of the items mentioned in "Ebay" is a ''Series/DukesOfHazzard'' ashtray. With the controversy surrounding the Confederate flag, that will now raise some eyebrows instead.

** '''Kevin Federline.''' It's clear from his Al TV "interview" that he's the only famous person Al has no problem throwing some very sincere shade onto.

* SweetDreamsFuel: His songs can put one in a good mood really fast, and many fans have written to him about he helped them cope with depression.

** The song also contains a secondary TakeThat at entitled celebrities who think their status means they can escape all consequences for their actions.

*** The bridge also has a jab at the hypocrisy of the entertainment industry's lavish lifestyles and how they use it to justify crackdowns on illegal downloading.

Added DiffLines:

** Creator/AtlanticRecords. Al had approached Music/JamesBlunt about parodying his single "You're Beautiful". Blunt gave Al permission, but at the last second his record label, Atlantic Records, nixed the idea. Al would go on to perform the song on live shows while wearing a shirt saying "Atlantic Records Sucks", and would vandalize the Atlantic Records Wikipedia page in the video for "White And Nerdy".

* AmbiguousEnding: Being one of his (lyrically) darker songs, the music video [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-CG5w4YwOI]] for "Party In The CIA" implies that the protagonist is screwed over and ends up in the clutches of some dictator while the lyrics/protagonist say that you "better put your hands up and get in the van or else you'll get blown away." And when the lyrics say that "we only torture the folks we don't like, you're probably gonna be OK," it is not known if that means that the kidnapping is fake, or that the kidnapping is real but the protagonist will receive a painless death.

-->And, by the way, if one day you happen to wake up and find yourself in an existential quandary, full of loathing and self-doubt, and wracked with the pain and isolation of your pitiful meaningless existence; at least you can take a small bit of comfort in knowing that somewhere out there in this crazy old mixed-up universe of ours, there's still a little place... [[Series/BreakingBad Called Albuquerque!]].
