Trivia: Death Grips
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: On Stage / Record, MC Ride is a gangbanger who has major mental and anger issues. Offstage, Stefan Burnett is a soft-spoken, mild-mannered man who likes to paint. The same can be said for Zach and Andy.
  • One of Us: The band is very knowledgeable, and at times downright obsessed, with the seedier, weirder side of the internet, and maintain lots of contact with their fans via Image Boards. MC Ride namedrops 4chan's /mu/ board in the song "Fuck That", and their second album NO LOVE DEEP WEB was given a Alternate Reality Game based around both /mu/ and the Tor-based so-called "deep web", run entirely by the band members themselves. They even responded to a fan's question asking if they would accept Bitcoins as a payment method for their album. They said yes.
  • Shout-Out: The song title "You might think he loves you for your money but I know what he really loves you for it's your brand new leopard skin pillbox hat" is of course a Bob Dylan lyric.
  • X Meets Y: Public Enemy meets Industrial. Some have taken to calling their particular style "Noise Rap".
