* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: This is basically the site's entire point. See [[AwesomeMusic/OverClockedRemix here]] for specific examples.
* DeadHorseGenre: Besides [=ReMixes=] with lyrics, most dubstep, rap, and metal [=ReMixes=] also commonly receive backlash.
* ItGetsBetter: Some [=ReMixes=] can be made better to a listener by chopping the first 30 to 60 seconds of the song off.
* MisattributedSong: It's commonly believed that [[http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR00022/ this OC ReMix]] by The Rabbit Joint is by Music/SystemOfADown. It isn't. This misattribution was [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=XdyFH0KzzhU#t=3031s debunked by SoaD bassist Shavo Odadjian]] in 2002. (50:32-51:30 of video)
* MorePopularSpinoff: Of [[http://overclocked.org OverClocked]] itself.
* OlderThanTheyThink: Contrary to popular belief, the concept of video game music remixes and a central location to showcase them was not originally conceived by [=OC ReMix=]. The site's founder, David "djpretzel" Lloyd, was actually inspired by specialized sites like [[http://c64audio.com C64 Audio]], back then a collection of free Commodore 64 arrangements.
* TheScrappy: Vocal [=ReMixes=] are often the point of ire, mostly for those who prefer instrumental-only music (most VGM is instrumental), consider video game music with lyrics to be out of bounds, or dislike the quality of the vocal performances. They seem aware of it, as their 2012 AprilFoolsDay joke involved a ReTool to all vocal remixes.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Many [=ReMixes=] are criticized as TheyJustDidntCare for not copying/retaining the mood, feel, or instrumentation of the source music, even though interpretation through arrangement is the site's stated purpose.
* YouKeepUsingThatWord: Because [=OverClocked ReMix=] sounded better than "[=OverClocked Arrangements=]," the site uses the proper noun "[=ReMix=]" (capital R, capital M) to signify interpretive arrangements rather than traditional remixes. Though [=OC ReMixes=] almost never directly sample the original audio, most people casually refer to them as "remixes" anyway.
