[[caption-width-right:350:Psychostick circa ''Sandwich''. Left to right: Alex Priess/Dontre, Josh Key, Rob Kersey, Jake [=McReynolds=], Jimmy Grant. Foreground: Logo. Background: Mascot.]]

An American comedic [[UsefulNotes/HeavyMetal Metal]] band with strong influences from AlternativeMetal, {{Hardcore}}, NuMetal and FunkMetal; the band describe their music as "Humorcore". Formed in 2000, they became known to a wider audience in 2006 with the re-release of their 2003 debut album and have released two studio albums, along with two [=EP=]s (one of them a Christmas Album), since. They are also distinguished for their use of unusual wigs/[[NiceHat hats]] and costumes, with lead singer Rob's spiked clown hat being the one constant.

"How many tacos?" \\
"Uh, that would be 4,000." \\
"Four ''thousand'' tacos and one diet coke?." \\
"Yes sir."
* {{Angrish}}: Many, if not most, songs.
* {{Angst}}: Of which the band's SignatureStyle is a {{parody}} of.
* AudienceParticipation: Parodied in "Welcome to the Show", where the audience is asked to make some noise, show the metal horns, [[FlippingTheBird flip the bird at the band]], wave their keys in the air, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking give their neighbour a hug]]. ([[OutOfGenreExperience "Awww...you guys are sweet!"]])
* AuthorAppeal: In addition to thanking their musical influences in the liner notes, said artists also get mentioned in their {{sketch|comedy}} sequences.
* AwardBaitSong: "#1 Radio $ingle" tells you how it's done.
-->"We sell a million albums!"
* BadassBoast / RockstarSong: "P is the Best Letter"
--> P is the best letter in the whole alphabet,\\
because it starts the name of the greatest band ever.\\
The greatest band ever happens to be [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall the one you are now listening to]].
* {{Beergasm}} / OdeToIntoxication: "BEER!!!" and "Jagermeister Love Song"[[note]]Debut album bonus track[[/note]].
* BerserkButton / RageBreakingPoint: "Don't Eat My Food"
* BigShutUp: "Sadface :(", which is about Facebook posts and Twitter updates.
* BlackComedy
* BlackSheepHit: "Beer!", as showcased in "That Guy".
* BlatantLies / TheTreacheryOfImages: "This is Not a Song, It's a Sandwich!"
* BlooperReel: Each album (with the exception of ''[[ChristmasAlbum Holiday Joyride]]'') contains an "Outtakes" track which mostly consists of Rob (the singer) interrupting a line via a memory or vocal mishap.
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: Near the end of "[[InsistentTerminology This Is Not A Song, It's A Sandwich]]", a list of typical sandwich fillings is listed off, which gradually get more and more absurd. This list includes:
--> Lettuce, bacon, cheese, tomato, cheese, olives, onions, frog, tuna, turkey, peppers, salami, noodles, pizza, TIRES...'''CROWBARS!'''
** From "Because Boobs":
--> I wanna grab 'em, I wanna shake 'em,\\
I wanna nom nom! Because boobs.\\
I wanna squeeze 'em, I wanna slap 'em,\\
I wanna ''punch 'em''! Because boobs.
* BrickJoke: The first name suggested for ''We Couldn't Think of a Title'' at the beginning of the album is "The Flesh Eating Rollerskate". Their follow-up [[ChristmasAlbum Christmas EP]] would be named ''The Flesh Eating Rollerskate Holiday Joyride''.
* BrutalHonesty: "You're just drinking a pizza!"
* BuffySpeak: "For every spam you send me, I'm gonna... do something... like... really... not good!"
* ButtMonkey: Alex, the drummer. Is nicknamed "The Boy", appears in the debut album insert wearing a cow pattern jumpsuit, complete with a plastic udder, and gets criticized and ignored by the other band members during songs and skits.
* BuxomIsBetter, FunbagAirbag, GagBoobs, {{Gainaxing}}, IHaveBoobsYouMustObey, MarshmallowHell, PetitePride: "Because Boobs"
* CaptainObvious: "You're at a concert! You're at a show!"
* CarefulWithThatAxe: Rob is such a big fan of this trope that it'd be easier to list the songs that ''don't'' use it.
* CasanovaWannabe: "In a Band to Get Chicks"
* ChekhovsGun: "Attempt at Something Serious" involves one of the guitarists, Jimmy, trying to "write a serious song", only to be constantly interrupted by the other band members, eventually telling them it will "sell them a million albums". It's followed by "#1 Radio $ingle", which they say in the song itself will "sell them a million albums" but is different from the one Jimmy was writing. That song turns out to be "We Ran Out of CD Space", which ends up not being very serious after all.
* ClusterFBomb: "I like to yell things in the microphone! And say bad words: fuckity fucker!"
* ConceptAlbum: Though it doesn't comprise the album as a whole, 8[[note]]10 if you count "Caffeine" and the fast food worker lament "Minimum Rage"[[/note]] of the 24 tracks on ''Sandwich'' are food-related and all appear in a (mostly) uninterrupted cluster within the middle of the album.
* ConspiracyTheorist: "Political Bum"
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment:
--> '''Rob:''' You better get up before I start singing you a... SONG!
--> '''Josh:''' Alright, alright, I'm up! I'm up! Just ''please'' stop singing, man! You sing like shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit!
* DeadArtistsAreBetter: "Fake My Own Death and Go Platinum"
* DeathbringerTheAdorable: "Six Pounds of Terror" consists entirely of a guitar and drums playing to a little dog growling while playing with his squeeze toy.
* DeconstructiveParody:
** "Why, Oh, Why" is a note for note, lyric for lyric parody of the popular NuMetal band Music/{{Staind}} and singer Aaron Lewis' over-the-top relationship-based {{Angst}}.
** "#1 Radio $ingle" deconstructs the songwriting of Music/{{Nickelback}} and various other cookie-cutter PostGrunge HardRock acts.
** "Numbers (I Can Only Count to Four)" mocks the simplistic music and WordSaladLyrics of the original DrowningPool song.
* DoesThisMakeMeLookFat: One of the many topics brought up in "Throwin' Down".
* {{Dramedy}}: Despite the {{parody}} element, some of the songs are surprisingly effective as traditionally dark metal songs, [[DarkerAndEdgier especially]] on the debut.
* DrugsAreBad: Quoted verbatim within the [[ShowWithinAShow fake TV broadcast]] in "Lizard Sphere X".
* DrunkenSong: "BEER!" The lyric sheet even states that Josh "really was drunk" during the outro.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The three original bandmembers had different nicknames on the debut: "The Notorious R.O.B.", "Special J" and "The Boy".
* EducationalSong / SpellingSong: "[=ABCDeath=]", the alphabet song done ''[[MundaneMadeAwesome metal style!]]''
* EpicRocking: [[MundaneMadeAwesome "Shower"]]
* FakeOutFadeOut: "And once again, repeat the chorus for dramatic effect. To remind you that it will be stuck in your head for the rest of your life."
* FauxHorrific: "The Root of All Evil" turns a routine dentist appointment into borderline NightmareFuel.
* FlippingTheBird: At the end of "Sadface :(", Rob removes the subjects of the song from his friends list by clicking the mouse with his middle finger.
* GenreRoulette: Each song takes on a slightly different metal subgenre (or [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly mix of them]]), often in either {{Affectionate|Parody}} or {{Deconstructive|Parody}} style.
* GenreShift: "It's Only a Movie, Stupid!" alternates between guitar pop and the band's own metal style as a backdrop to the song's [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism contrasting messages]].
* GratuitousGerman: "Translate hate: ''Hass ist groß, ja?''"
* HarshVocals: Taken all the way UpToEleven and performed by an enthusiastic dog.
* HeavyMeta: "Jingle Bell Metal"
* HiddenTrack: The first of the band's [[RunningGag recurring]] BlooperReel segments appears at the end of ''We Couldn't Thing of a Title'' Track 18, "Fake My Own Death and Go Platinum", rather than as its own, individually labelled track on latter releases.
* InconvenientItch: "Scrotal Torment"
* ImAManICantHelpIt: "Because Boobs"
* IntercourseWithYou: "Orgasm = Love"
* InsaneTrollLogic: "The Dumb Song", whose lyrics primarily consist of "''[insert random contemptible occurance]'' because you're dumb!"
* InsistentTerminology: It may sound like a song, but it isn't. It's a '''SANDWICH.'''
* {{Instrumental|s}}: "Largiloquent Dithryamb", save for three trace lines of spoken dialogue which make the song much more {{Squick}}y when taken together.
* KillEmAll: "Die... a LOT!"
-->You! Me! Him! Her!\\
Everyone's gonna die!\\
Us! Them! They!\\
Come on, everybody DIE!
* ItsAllAboutMe: "P is the Best Letter"
--> You see, I'm not just an average guy, I'm the singer from Psychostick! I shouldn't just have one chick, I should have a whole harem, and I shouldn't just have one harem, I should have 2, in every state! And each chick should be able to fly to Starbucks to get my mocha frappucino, and my chicks have Wi-Fi preinstalled! Really fast Wi-Fi!
* ItsNotSupposedToWinOscars: Invoked in the ending of "Orgasm = Love", Rob says, "This song ain't getting on the radio any time soon!"
* LargeHam: Rob, aka [[NotoriousBIG "The Notorious R.O.B."]]
* LighterAndSofter: Most of ''Space Vampires vs. Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D'' has more pop-oriented song arrangements than the straightforward metal sound of the previous two albums and [=EPs=].
* LoudnessWar: Surprisingly averted; while the albums are still noticeably saturated, they're slightly less so than the majority of albums of the same time period and genre (the ReplayGain averages of all three studio albums are still in the single digit values, though ''Space Vampires'' comes startlingly close to breaking this like nearly all other popular music does). This goes especially for ''Holiday Joyride'', which has a volume and sonic clarity reminiscent of the [[TheNineties 1990s]]. And each one has very wide, natural dynamics, with the exception of ''Space Vampires'' which is more compressed than prior releases.
* {{Malaproper}}: ''We Couldn't Think of a Title'' offers an unusual variant:
--> '''Alex:''' Here it is, here it is: ''Vulgar Display of Power''!
--> '''Josh:''' [[PunctuatedForEmphasis You. Are. Dumb!]]
--> '''Rob:''' What kind of band would think of a name like that?
--> '''Mike:''' Hey, hey Robby! While I'm thinking about it, I know what... where this... this kind of came out of nowhere but... um... do you have all my Music/{{Pantera}} [=CDs=]?
--> '''Rob:''' Probably. Which one?
--> '''Mike:''' Uh, the name's uh, I forget, uh... ''[[InWhichATropeIsDescribed Vultures Displaying Flowers]]''. Oh shit! I got that one! It's like, it's like a classic album! You have it? I do? Okay.
--> '''Josh:''' We should come up with names like those guys!
* MarsAndVenusGenderContrast: "Throwin' Down", "Girl Directions", hell, nearly any time a female is discussed.
* {{Mascot}}: A cartoon drawing of a twig with {{Mad Eye}}s and a wide open, PervertedDrooling mouth, basically a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin psycho stick]].
* {{Medley}}: "373 Thank Yous" is 14 minutes of the band singing the names of everyone who donated to ''Sandwich'''s production to the tune of several songs from ''We Couldn't Think of a Title''.
* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: 8.
* {{Motormouth}}: Three each from ''We Couldn't Think of a Title'':
** "Why, Oh Why":
---> "...andthatoneguythatusedtocomeoverandmowourlawneverySaturdayhehadacooltattooofadragononhisshoulderitwasreallyneatandstuuuuuuuuuuuuuuff! Whew!"
** "Orgasm = Love":
---> "'Causetyingyouuptomybedandgaggingyouwithyourownpantiesandstickingmywienerinbetweenyourboobiesandcummingalloveryourchinequalslooooooooooooove!"
** "The Dumb Song"[[note]]Limited edition track[[/note]]:
---> "[=OnetimeyouwenttoMcDonald'sandgotsomefrenchfriessomeketchuppackageandyousatdowntoeatthembutyoucouldn'tgetthemopensoyouwenttothestoretobuysomescissorsbutdidn'thaveenoughtmoneysoyoustartedrunningtoyourfriend'shousetoborrowsomemoneysoyoucouldbuysomescissorstoopenupyourkatchuppackageandenjoyyourfrenchfriesmorefullybutthenjustbeforeyougottohisfrontdoor=][[PianoDrop apianofellonyourheeeeeaaad]]... because you're duuuuumb!"
** "Obey the Beard":
---> "Areyoustuckinthemiddleofnowhereandyouneedtomakeanimportantphonecallbutthebattery'sdeadandyoucan'tfindanoutlettopluginyourcharger? ...Grow a beard!"
* MST3KMantra: Invoked in "It's Just A Movie, Stupid", though the song itself doesn't follow this advice.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: Most of the band's music in general invokes this, with "Shower" being the penultimate example.
--> IT'S SHOWER TIME, YOU BITCHES!!!
* MustHaveCaffeine: "Caffeine"
* MyEyesAreUpHere: "Yeah, but your boobs are down there!"
* NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: The bulk of the band's music involves rather distinct blends of influences that can be difficult to pin down to just one genre. Is it {{Hardcore}}? Is it NuMetal? Is it {{Thrash|Metal}}? Is it FunkMetal? More importantly, who cares?
* NiceHat: Rob's rainbow foam spiked hat, which he is always wearing.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: ''Space Vampires VS Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D''
** From "We Ran Out of CD Space":
---> What if your dad was made of rainbows?\\
You would be like, "OMG that's lame, I want a dad made out of Ninja Robots."
* NonIndicativeName: "Prozak Milkshake" is, well, pretty much the opposite of what you'd except from such.
* NoYou: "Hey Murph, yer dumb!" "No yer dumb!" "No, no yer dumb!"
* ObsessedWithFood: At least a third of the ''Sandwich'' album is this. In particular:
** "The Hunger Within", which is about the narrator fantasizing about tacos, pizzas, waffles and omelets, having run out of both substantial food and the money to buy it.
---> The fridge is so empty.\\
Good food is so tempting.\\
I've got three more days\\
'till I get paid.\\
\\
Take away my suffering.\\
I can't go on with things this way.\\
There's only so much that I can take...\\
...of eating ramen noodles.
** "Do You Want a Taco?"
--> Do you feel inner peace because you hold it?\\
Would you fall in despair if you had dropped it?\\
Does it meet every need you have inside?\\
You feel so alive!
* [[OhCrap Oh Shit]]: "I've got bad diarrhea, it might be a good idea if I found the bathroom quick before I..."
* OutOfGenreExperience: They indulge in a more pop-sounding edge whenever the joke demands it, often suddenly dipping back into thrash metal, such as in "It's Just A Movie, Stupid".
* PottyEmergency: "No Pun Intended"
* PowerBallad: "Orgasm = Love"
* ThePowerOfHate: "Hate Times 8"
--> Embrace your hate / Hate tastes great
--> Hate your hate / Love to hate
--> Hate times eight
* OverlyLongName: "How about, '{{Panic|AtTheDisco}} Music/{{at the Gates}} Music/{{Between|TheBuriedAndMe}} Music/{{all That Remains}} Bleeding Through the Eyes of the Dead From Autumn to Ashes Every Time I [[Music/AsILayDying Lay Dying]] Music/{{in Flames}} [[Music/PanicAtTheDisco at the Disco]]... [[Music/{{Psychostick}} Stick]]?'"
* PerfectlyCromulentWord: "Pluh"
--> If there ever was a word that you heard \\
SO ABSURD \\
It could take the place of ANYTHING \\
that you could say \\
\\
Noun, verb, adverb, statement, question \\
Daytime, night-time, anytime, anyone! \\
\\
So remember the next time you forget \\
What you're sayin' in the middle of a sentence- \\
Don't strain your brain to remember the word \\
Instead look 'em right in the nose and \\
Tell 'em that the answer is: \\
[[TitleDrop "PLUH!"]]
* PowerUpFood: You probably never realized how awesome a fruit an ''Orange'' is!
* PrecisionFStrike: Happens a lot.
* RealityEnsues: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnyw4ytoHC4&feature=related "It's Just A Movie, Stupid"]]

** The subject of the song "Why, Oh, Why".
* RestrainedRevenge: "Passive Vengeance"
* RhymesOnADime: "Hate Times 8"
--> Don't you hate\\
AlexanderTheGreat\\
[[BadassCape in a cape]]\\
as he conquers Kuwait?
* RunningGag: The HilariousOuttakes at the end of each full studio album. The third instance is titled [[LampshadeHanging "Duh, of Course We Did Outtakes!"]].
* RussianReversal: "Your hate can go fuck itself!" "Well, your fuck can go hate itself!"
* SarcasmMode: "Cockblock"
--> Congratulations!\\
You're an asshole!\\
I hope you're happy,\\
'Cause you're an asshole!
* SayMyName: "Alex? Alex?! ALEX!!! This is a slow song, you can do that on the ''next'' one."
* TheScrappy: [[AWildRapperAppears Guest rapper]] Big Daddy Crack, as made evident InUniverse in "Lizard Sphere X".
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Josh utters this very phrase during "Orgasm = Love" when he gets tired of playing a ballad.
* SelfDemonstratingSong: "#1 Radio $ingle"

* SirSwearsALot: Makes sense, considering the genre(s) of music they're parodying.
* {{Sleepyhead}}: Josh becomes so bored during "Orgasm = Love" that he falls asleep at the end.
--> "Looks like our slow song put him to sleep!"
** Rob then violently wakes him up in the very next track.
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: "It's Just a Movie, Stupid" contrasts the Idealism of HollywoodStyle romance with the band's own Cynical standpoint.
* SongParody: "Numbers (I Can Only Count to Four)" is a parody of "Bodies" by Drowning Pool about [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin exactly what it says]].
** "Sadface :(" includes a brief parody of "The Beautiful People" by Music/MarilynManson.
* StealthPun:
** "The Root of All Evil" is about going to the dentist for a root canal.

---> I've got bad diarrhea\\
It might be a good idea\\
if I found the bathroom quick\\
before I... oh shit

* SuddenNameChange: In the notes for ''Space Vampires'', Alex's surname is listed as "Dontre" rather than "Priess" as on previous releases.
* SugarBowl: "We Ran Out of CD Space" provides a rather {{literal|metaphor}} example:
--> What if the world was made of glazed doughnuts?\\
You would be like, "Man, that's fuckin' sweet!\\
I can't believe the world is made of doughnuts!"
** SugarApocalypse:
---> What if another world then ate the world made of doughnuts,\\
making all the doughnut people pissed?
* TallDarkAndHandsome: "And there he was / He picked her up / And asked her, "Hey, are you okay?" / He was tall and dark / Strong and kind / And sensitive with washboard abs and it was BULLSHIT!"
* ThisIsGonnaSuck: "Dentist, dentist, dentist, dentist. Going to the dentist, going to the dentist and it's gonna SUCK!"
* ThreeChordsAndTheTruth
* ToiletHumor
* TooDumbToLive: "Now that we have drunk some beer / let's go drive a car!"
* ThirdIs3D: ''Space Vampires vs. Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D'', the band's third "official" studio album if you don't count their two [=EPs=].
* {{Troperiffic}}: Especially impressive for a band generally out of the public eye and has only released three and a half albums along with few, if any, music videos.
* TrueArtIsAngsty: {{Invoked|Trope}} in "Intervention for a Good Mood"
--> '''Matty:''' ...freaking wearing viking helmets and they're... \\
'''Josh:''' Ah ha ha! \\
'''Matty:''' ...like shooting lasers at each other. \\
'''Josh:''' It's awesome. \\
'''Matty:''' And it's like, it's just fucking epic, dude! And did you, did you see the one where like, the guy has the vacuum cleaner and he's like... \\

'''Rob:''' Yeah, it, uh... I dunno how to put this, uh, gently, so uh... um, I'm just gonna, uh, come out and say it, uh... Your, uh, your positive vibes and your, and your attititude, your positive attitude and your... you know, just being happy in general is just... not good for metal. \\
'''Matty:''' I know. I know, man! \\
'''Rob:''' And we need to, we need to, we need to put a stop to it, man. And, you know, we're here for you, though.

* WordSaladLyrics: "We Ran Out of CD Space" begins each line with "What if..." and then immediately descends into nonsensical lunacy.
* WordSaladTitle: "Lizard Sphere X"
* XMeetsY: The melodic/heavier contrast of SystemOfADown crossed with the funk-rock style of RedHotChiliPeppers, with masses of RuleOfFunny.
** Alternatively, Music/BloodhoundGang meets Music/FiveFingerDeathPunch.
* {{Yandere}}: "My Clingy Girlfriend"
--> I made her a cupcake to soften the blow when \\
I told her "I'm not ready for this level of commitment" \\
She grabbed for a fork then stabbed me in the arm and \\
began to pull my hair out while \\
expressing her resentment\\
\\
And then she told me she would murder my whole family, my coworkers and girl who took my order that day at Wendy's then she the house on fire, and ran screaming right outside and I felt guilty as the flames reflected off her teary eyes.
