* CoveredUp: Mad World was originally performed by them, but most (read: underage) people only know Gary Jules' version from Film/DonnieDarko.
* MemeticMutation: ''Shout, shout, let it all out! These are the things I can do without, come on!'' It's also not uncommon for other people to insert a different word where "things" is. Just take a look at the band's main trope page. Somebody used it as a heading to describe all of the following tropes by replacing that word with "tropes".
* TearJerker: Many, especially "Famous Last Words", which is about a nuclear holocaust.
