Blood Red Shoes provides examples of these tropes!

  • Miniscule Rocking: "Je Me Perds" clocks in at only 1:28, but still rocks as hard (maybe even harder) as their other songs.
    • With no lyrics, the 1:51 long "Welcome Home" is even more this.
  • Non-Appearing Title: "Say Something, Say Anything" off of Box of Secrets.
  • Precision F-Strike: BRS certainly aren't against swearing, but it's always perfectly placed rather than as a matter of course. A good example are the opening lines of "Say Something, Say Anything":
    The letters are held tight
    A fucking theft in broad daylight
    • And from "An Animal":
    I see you there no hair out of place
    I see that fucking look on your face
  • Self-Titled Album: Their fourth album.
