Trivia: Barenaked Ladies
  • Creator Backlash: For a while they stopped playing "If I Had $1000000" in concert, because they got sick of fans throwing Kraft dinner at them during the song. Now they play the song, but they request that you put your Kraft dinners in the donation boxes.
  • Official Fan-Submitted Content: One of their videos was clips of fans lip syncing to the song.
  • One of Us:
    • Ed has stated that one of the reasons he was able to write the theme for The Big Bang Theory is because science was one of his favorite subjects in school when he was growing up. He also knows the guys at Rooster Teeth and has helped them out with videos they did to help promote the custom content system for City of Heroes.
    • And, he was Captain Flowers in Red vs. Blue. Hell, the band actually collaborated with Rooster Teeth to record their video for "Odds Are, with Freddie Wong and iJustine also featuring in brief cameos.
  • The Pete Best: Andy Creeggan, who was uncomfortable with fame.
  • So My Kids Can Watch: Several examples, actually. In addition to Snacktime!!, there's "The Ballad of Gordon", an Anvilicious yet catchy PSA the band did very early in their career. They've also contributed songs to other children's compilations.
  • Real Life Writes the Plot: There really is a net on a bridge near where Steven Page lives to stop jumpers from "raining down on the cars and trucks below".
  • The video for Thanks That Was Fun features all six members of Barenaked Ladies, as it was a montage of their previous music videos. Of course, Steven Page (who was in the band at the time), Ed Robertson, Kevin Hearn, Tyler Stewart, and Jim Creeggan are featured prominently, but in a few blink-and-you-miss-it moments you can catch glimpses of their original keyboardist Andy Creeggan.
    • Also true of the video for Pollywog in a Bog (Andy is the second fox).
