* AwesomeMusic: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGr3cBuM8Zw "Fuck You!"]]
* IAmNotShazam: There are a good number of people who thought "Gnarls Barkley" was his name.
* InternetBacklash: Of all the things Cee Lo could have said to spark off this reaction, it was changing a couple of lyrics from the [[Music/TheBeatles John Lennon]] song "Imagine" when singing the song during 2012 New Years Day. Although not all John Lennon fans were upset at Cee Lo, the rest of them gave him the kind of disapproval usually reserved for Music/JustinBieber. Ouch.
* MisaimedFandom: A rare positive example. According to a JET magazine interview, Cee Lo said the main reason he wrote "Fuck You" was to get forced out of his contract with Atlantic Records, since he felt that the company constrained his sense of creativity. Ironically enough, despite the song primarily designed as a TakeThat to Atlantic, the company ''loved'' the single and enthusiastically advertised the song afterward, along with the album "The Ladykiller". That's not to say Cee Lo wasn't grateful for the odd change of heart.
* SequelDisplacement: Despite Cee Lo's connections to Goodie Mob and his Gnarls Barkley material, a surprising number of listeners (mostly older R&B fans) think he's a new artist, and that ''The Lady Killer'' was his first album ever, rather than his first full fledged R&B album.
* SignatureSong: "Crazy" with Gnarls Barkley, "Fuck You!" solo.
* TearJerker: His song with Gnarls Barkley, "Just a Thought."
* {{Wangst}}: Parodied with the Gnarles Barkley single "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhPVA3AEioE Whatever]]."
