!!Tropes that apply to this band:
* AccentuateTheNegative: The liner notes for their greatest hits album, ''The Greatest Songs Ever Written (By Us)'' contain clippings of the most negative reviews the band has ever received, including one from a critic who claimed that a bite on his penis from a deer tick he'd recently gotten while camping was pleasant compared to the album he was reviewing.
* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: "Philthy Phil Philanthropist."
* ApatheticCitizens: "Franco Un-American" is from the perspective of who's been largely apathetic to the greater issues of the world like global warming, animal rights and corrupt governments, only to become shocked by the damage they've done and vow to no longer sit idly by and let such things happen.
* BestialityIsDepraved[=/=]ContemptibleCover: The cover to ''Heavy Petting Zoo'' depicts a man cuddling in a...rather interesting way with a lamb. Then there's the cover of ''Eating Lamb'', depicting him in a 69 position...make note that the album has no references to bestiality, nor animals or zoos in general, at all.
* DigitalPiracyIsOkay[=/=]DigitalPiracyIsEvil: Parodied in a hidden advertisement for ''The War On Errorism'' on their EP ''Regaining Unconsciousness'', which ends with El Hefe encouraging the listener to go pick up the album at their nearest independent record store, followed by a very fast, half-whispered "Also available for free on the internet."
* DividedStatesOfAmerica: "Leaving Jesusland"
* EpicRocking: "The Decline" runs for over a whopping ''18 minutes''.
* EyeScream: The song "Stickin' in my Eye"
* IntentionallyAwkwardTitle: "Don't Call Me White" and ''White Trash, Two Heebs and a Bean''
** Also, "Heavy Petting Zoo"
* HiddenTrack: ''So Long And Thanks For All The Fish'' has a brief clip of Creator/HowardStern playing their song "Drugs Are Good" on the air hidden after the last track - Stern doesn't even let the song play long enough for the vocals to start, dismissing it for not "rocking" enough, comparing it to disco, and suggesting they change their name to No Talent.
* HulkSpeak: "Whoops I OD'd", sung from the perspective of someone who has overdosed on drugs, features a lot of this.
* LeadBassist: Fat Mike is a Type B.
* LongRunnerLineup: Type 2, as the band's lineup has been the same since 1991.
* NWordPrivileges. Their ''White Trash, Two Heebs, and a Bean'' album. The album's name actually refers to the members of the band, with El Hefe being the "bean", the "two heebs" (heebs being short for Hebrews, as in Jewish people) being Fat Mike and Eric Melvin, and "white trash" being Erik Sandin. According to the CD notes, this was a retreat from the original working title of ''White Trash, Two Kikes, and a Spic'' which their parents objected to.
* IronicNickname: Fat Mike is not very fat.
* ObligatoryBondageSong: A surprising amount of their songs are about S&M.
** BondageIsBad: Subverted
* PrisonRape: A character in "The Decline" is raped after being incarcerated for a marijuana-related misdemeanor. He soon commits suicide by asphyxiation.
* ProtestSong: "The Decline" again.
** During the Bush administration the band noticeably became more political in their songs. ''The War On Errorism,'' as the title might imply, was mostly made up of these. Fat Mike also produced two compilations in 2004 entitled ''Rock Against Bush'' for his label Fat Wreck Chords.
** Another Bush protest song was 'The Idiot Son Of An Asshole." As you can imagine, this one is a bit more on-the-nose and was only ever performed live.
* PunBasedTitle: ''Heavy Petting Zoo'' and ''The War on Errorism''.
** CoolAndUnusualPunishment is the name of one of their songs about Japanese S&M clubs.
* RefugeInAudacity: Quite a few songs, but "She's Nubs" off of "The War on Errorism" is a fairly good example. The song depicts a woman who has no arms or legs that enjoys going to punk shows (and who turned down Fat Mike's invitation to go hang out before being carried away in someone's backpack), despite the difficulties she faces in her life. The real life Nubs (a Toronto woman named Talli - who has legs and a job) [[http://www.nofxwiki.net/wiki/index.php?title=Nubs_by_punknews.org absolutely loves the song, and says that she wouldn't have turned down Fat Mike in real life]]. The kicker? The ''only'' thing she was offended at about the song was a random line about her inability to "give good head".
* SelfDeprecation
** Their two live albums ''I Heard They Suck Live!'' and ''They've Actually Gotten Worse Live!''
** The album ''Coaster'' reference the bands opinion that you would get better use out of it using it as such. The Vinyl version of the album is entitled ''Frisbee''.
** As mentioned above, the liner notes for ''The Greatest Songs Ever Written (By Us)'' contain clips of their most negative reviews and ''only'' negative reviews.
* SexDrugsAndRockAndRoll
* ShoutOut: ''So Long And Thanks For All The Shoes'' is a play on a quote from ''Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'': In the book, the last message the dolphins send out to mankind before departing a soon-to-be-destroyed earth is "so long and thanks for all the fish". They replaced "fish" with "shoes" because audiences tend to throw their footwear onstage at outdoor punk shows.
* {{Spoonerism}}. ''Liberal Animation'' and ''Punk in Drublic''
* StageName. El Hefe and Fat Mike.
* TakeThat: "Kill Rock Stars" was a very incensed take at [[BikiniKill Kathleen Hanna,]] written after she criticized the band earlier on.
* ThreeChordsAndTheTruth
* TooDumbToLive: ''We threw gasoline on the fire and now we have stumps for arms and no eyebrows''
