- "Take a look, take a look, take a look
At the kids on the street, no, they never miss a beat
No, they never miss a beat, never miss a beat
Never miss a beat, beat, beat, beat"—Never Miss a Beat

Kaiser Chiefs provide examples of:
- Break Up Song: "Everyday I Love You Less and Less".
- Funny Afro: Simon Rix, depending on the publicity shot (like the one above).
- Long Runner Line Up: The band remained stable from 1996 until the drummer's departure in 2012.
- Market-Based Title: The Future is Medieval will be released in America with the title Start the Revolution Without Me.
- Oop North: They come from Leeds.
- She Is Not My Girlfriend: "You Can Have It All", except it's not quite a denial:I tell you what it's going to be like
No, you can never hold my hand in public
They can't know or understand
That you and me are now together
- Shout-Out: "Caroline, Yes".
- Spell My Name with an "S": Both the first and the current name fall under this: Runston Parva has an N in the middle of the first name to differentiate itself from Ruston Parva, a hamlet near Leeds, while the "Kaiser" in Kaiser Chiefs is written with an S to differentiate from the football team they took the name from (which is spelled "Kaizer", with a Z).
- Wretched Hive: The city depicted in "I Predict a Riot", which may or may not really be Leeds, depending on who you ask.
