Funny: Barenaked Ladies
  • "Bank Job". That is all.
    "But how do you plan for a bank full of nuns?"
  • "Why Say Anything Nice?"
    "Why'd you put your backpack on
    If you won't just take a hike?"
  • This Rendition of "King Of Bedside Manor".
  • "Crazy" is basically a string of one-liners based around slang for being insane.
    "The lights are on but nobody's home
    My elevator doesn't go to the top
    I'm not playing with a full deck
    I've lost my marbles!"
  • The "Give me a break" in the background during the bridge of "Stomach vs Heart"
  • The end of Enid:
    I can get a job, I can pay the phone bills
    I can cut the lawn, cut my hair, cut out my cholesterol
    I can work overtime, I can work in a mine
    I can do it all for you!
    But I don't want to!
  • "Grade 9".
    "Jim: They called me "Chicken Legs"
    Andy: They called me "Four Eyes"
    Steven: They called me "Fatso"
    Tyler: They called me "Buckwheat"
    Ed: They called me Eddie."
  • On their Live DVD Talk to The Hand, Steven literally eats the mic during a pause in the middle of "Be My Yoko Ono", much to the amusement of everyone.
  • "If you think of her as Catherine the Great, then you should be the horse to help her meet her fate."
  • "I could hide out under there/I just made you say underwear"
  • The entire video for "Odds Are, particularly as it contrasts so spectacularly with the lyrics of the video. There are quite a few bonuses for Rooster Teeth fans, too.
  • Their rendition of "Jingle Bells." Few bands but BNL would actually commit to tape the famous "Batman Smells" verse.
    • The crowning moment must be when Steven Page starts corpsing in the third chorus due to his voice squeaking from the harsh high-pitched near-falsetto he uses for most of the song.
