* [[BannedInChina Banned in Australia and Germany]] - That is, until 2007 and 2006, respectively. The German case only applied to some of their music, however.
* BigNameFan: Creator/JimCarrey is a fan of them. In fact, he was the one who suggested that they be put in a scene in ''Film/AceVenturaPetDetective''.
* CreativeDifferences: Depending on who you ask, Barnes either left because of this or because his excessive marijuana usage blew out his voice and made him unable to consistently pull off his gutturals.
* FountainOfExpies: Corpsegrinder, within the death metal scene.
** In fact, the band themselves, for death metal. If you ask someone to name a death metal band, chances are it's going to be these guys (unless the person you ask doesn't know much about death metal and says "Music/{{Slipknot}}" or "Music/{{Slayer}}".).
* InMemoriam: The first album, ''Eaten Back To Life'', contained a dedication to "the memory of Alfred Packer, the first American cannibal (R.I.P)".
* MilestoneCelebration: For their 15th anniversary of the band forming, they released "15 Year Killing Spree", a boxset featuring two "Best Of" [=CDs=], a CD with unreleased demos, and a DVD with 3 live performances by the band.
** For their 20th anniversary, they released "Centuries of Torment: The First 20 Years": a three disc DVD set featuring a documentary that reunited almost all of the band's members.
** For their 25th anniversary, they released "Dead Human Collection: 25 Years of Death Metal": a box set containing all of their albums, a live performance on CD and vinyl, a calendar and new artwork from Vince Locke.
* OldShame: Rusay has apparently entirely disavowed his time in the band.
* OneOfUs: Corpsegrinder plays ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' and is apparently obsessed with it. He's also a fan of ''Franchise/FinalFantasy''.
** The former even has a reference to him, in [[http://www.wowhead.com/?npc=25329#comments Gorge the Corpsegrinder, the tank commander.]] "Confirmed in a recent interview with Cannibal Corpse in Decibel Magazine - "There's a character in the new World of Warcraft named after me," Fisher beams, coincidentally wearing a WOW t-shirt. "I mean, this is my favorite fucking video game and they made a character named after me. Millions of people are going to go to Gorge the [=CorpseGrinder=] and get quests from him. It's unbelievable, just unbelievable."" And he is, of course, an orc. Not some pansy alliance elf...
* PromotedFanboy: Pat O'Brien was a huge fan of Cannibal Corpse well before he joined.
* ReclusiveArtist: One of the band's original guitarists, Bob Rusay, left music entirely after he got kicked out the band, and went on to become a golf instructor. He was the only member of the band who couldn't be reached for an interview in the band's 20th anniversary DVD.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen - The band's fifth album, ''Vile'', was originally going to be called ''Created To Kill''. Before the band's original singer, Chris Barnes, left the band, they recorded some of the songs for the album with his vocals and different lyrics.
** They have been mentioned for the soundtrack of the 2010 re-adaptation of Videogame/{{Splatterhouse}}. Unfortunately, it never happened.
* WorkingTitle: "Vile" was originally called "Created to Kill"
** "Orgasm Through Torture" was originally "Gallery of the Obscene".
** "Eaten From Inside" was originally "To Kill Myself"
