* HeyItsThatGuy: [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} Winston Zeddemore]] is Sgt. O'Malley, and Egon also appears as a "record executive".
** [[Series/{{Seinfeld}} Kramer]] is radio station accountant Doug Beech.
** [[Film/StandByMe Gordie LaChance's]] {{Jerkass}} father is now a SWAT team leader.
** [[Creator/ChrisFarley Officer Wilson]] will have plenty of time to search for Chazz's girfriend, when he's [[MemeticMutation living in a van down by the river.]]
** There's a "Hey It's That Place" as the radio station is in the same office area as [[Film/DieHard Nakatomi Plaza]].
* HeyItsThatVoice: Apparently [[WesternAnimation/{{TheSimpsons}} Fat Tony]] was once a DJ in Los Angeles.
* PlayingAgainstType: Creator/ChrisFarley, famous for playing [[LargeHam larger-than-life]] characters, as mild-mannered LAPD Officer Wilson.
** Similarly, Michael Richards, famous for playing {{Cloudcuckoolander}} Kramer on ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' as the highly neurotic Doug Beech.
* TechnologyMarchesOn: Chazz and his band might not have gotten in as much trouble if they had their demo on an iPod or available online. Also, if Kayla had a cell phone, Chazz might have gotten through to her sooner, and might not have needed the LAPD to scour the LA strip to find her.
** The Lone Rangers could have promoted their music through social media websites, eliminating the need for them to sneak into a radio station.
** The radio station would likely be going to an all-news format instead of easy listening (or closing completely) as in-car mp3 player options and satellite radio become ever more ubiquitous.
* VindicatedByCable: Very few people saw ''Airheads'' at the theater. But because it was played so heavily on ComedyCentral during the mid-1990s it has managed to become a CultClassic.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The role of Chazz was originally meant for John Cusack before Brendan Fraser was cast.
