* CreatorBacklash: For a while they stopped playing "If I Had $1000000" in concert, because they got sick of fans throwing Kraft Dinner[[note]]Kraft Macaroni & Cheese to Americans[[/note]] at them during the song. Now they play the song, but they request that you put your Kraft Dinners in the donation boxes.
* OfficialFanSubmittedContent: One of their videos was clips of fans lip syncing to the song.
* OneOfUs:
** Ed has stated that one of the reasons he was able to write the theme for ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' is because science was one of his favorite subjects in school when he was growing up. He also knows the guys at Creator/RoosterTeeth and has helped them out with videos they did to help promote the custom content system for ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes''.
** He was also Captain Flowers in ''Machinima/RedVsBlue''. Hell, the band actually collaborated with Rooster Teeth to record their video for [[http://t.co/RyqtePRZUc "Odds Are"]], with Creator/FreddieWong and iJustine also featuring in brief cameos.
*** A second collab "Did I say that outloud?" can be added to that list.
** They decided to cover "Lovers in a Dangerous Time" (their first video and the way they were introduced to Canadians due to the video in heavy rotation on MuchMusic), because, as they pointed out, they knew Music/BruceCockburn's music through Canadian radio and his videos on Video Hits. Anyone who grew up in Ontario in the 1980s, pre-MuchMusic, probably remembers the show well and is familiar with Canadian Content.
* ThePeteBest: Andy Creeggan, who was uncomfortable with fame.
* SoMyKidsCanWatch: Several examples, actually. In addition to ''Snacktime!!'', there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JtXoKOwTo2M "The Ballad of Gordon"]], an {{Anvilicious}} yet catchy PSA the band did very early in their career. They've also contributed songs to other children's compilations.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: There really is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince_Edward_Viaduct a net on a bridge]] near where Steven Page lives to stop jumpers from "raining down on the cars and trucks below".
* The video for ''Thanks That Was Fun'' features all ''six'' members of Barenaked Ladies, as it was a montage of their previous music videos. Of course, Steven Page (who was in the band at the time), Ed Robertson, Kevin Hearn, Tyler Stewart, and Jim Creeggan are featured prominently, but in a few blink-and-you-miss-it moments you can catch glimpses of their original keyboardist [[ThePeteBest Andy Creeggan]].
** Also true of the video for Pollywog in a Bog (Andy is the second fox).
