** The music video for "Close But No Cigar", which was animated by Creator/JohnKricfalusi, features a perverted alley cat trying to find the love of his life, only to turn them down over the slightest issue he finds with them (such as one of the girls using the word "infer" when she meant "imply"). The sexual imagery of the video can be a little awkward to watch in light of Kricfalusi's sexual harassment allegations. Made worse by the fact that Al himself has stated to be fan of John K.

The perverted behavior of the cat, his rather harsh way of dumping the women, and the overall sexual imagery of the video can be a little awkward uncomfortable to watch in light of Kricfalusi's sexual harassment allegations. Made worse by the fact that Al himself has stated to be fan of John K.

** Speaking of "Stop Forwarding That Crap to Me", one of the lyrics states "[[Series/MisterRogersNeighborhood Mr. Rogers]] never fought the [[UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar Vietcong.]]" On Mr. Rogers's 90th birthday, Adi Shankar posted [[https://youtu.be/ab0D0gKlsdA this video]] to YouTube.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Let's be honest, Osama bin Laden's death would have been a better subject for "Party in the CIA", despite the fact that Al no doubt wrote the song before it happened.

* DiscreditedMeme: The music video for "White & Nerdy" had Al editing Atlantic Records' Wikipedia entry with "YOU SUCK!" in large print, prompting fans and trolls to do the same to the real page. This led to Wikipedia protecting and even locking the page to prevent such vandalism. The page is no longer protected as of June 2017, but Wikipedia will ban the IP of anyone who changes it to Al's edit.

** Al would have a hard time doing a song like "Trigger Happy" today, especially with the mass shootings that took place since ''Off the Deep End'' was released.

* ValuesDissonance: In addition to using the term "midget", "Jerry Springer" off ''Music/RunningWithScissors'' spends a lot of time making a spectacle of transgender people, using words now considered slurs like "hermaphrodite" (which was also used in "Albuquerque", another song from the same album) and "shemale". That said, [[Series/TheJerrySpringerShow the show it was based on]] did exactly that on a weekly basis.
