YMMV: Anal Cunt
  • Crosses the Line Twice: Everything.
  • Crowning Moment Of Awesome: Reportedly, Putnam-after coming out of his coma-played "You're in a Coma" and "Pull the Plug" as soon as he was out of the hospital. He was still partially paralyzed during his performance.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Putnam making fun of Eric Clapton by claiming that his son Connor-instead of dying from an accidental fall-intentionally jumped to his death simply because Eric's music sucked. Even if you realize the purpose of the band's music, that's still pretty hard to understand.
    • Putnam managed to soften the blow by rewriting the title to remove references to Eric and his son, as well as censoring the entire song on the lyric sheets
    • Given some of the details in the lyrics, "I Sent A Thank You Card To The Guy Who Raped You" may be about the real life rape and murder of Mia Zapata.
    • Putnam had something of a feud with Nasum's Mieszko Talarczyk. When Talarczyk died in the tsunami that resulted from the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake, Anal Cunt responded with "Tsunasum", a song featuring the line "I survived my coma, you got killed by water". Which also manages to be a bit of a "Funny Aneurysm" Moment since the song didn't see release until Putnam's death.
  • Face of the Band: Seth Putnam, its only consistent member. After his death, the band broke up.
  • Fair for Its Day: Over the years, it's become less common and acceptable to use the word 'gay' as an insult. With the amount of songs calling things gay, A.C. arguably might have gotten more offensive over time.
  • Misaimed Fandom: A portion of their fanbase is completely unaware that it was all a joke or simply couldn't care less.
  • Narm Charm: Part of their appeal to metalheads.
  • Older Than They Think: Many believe that Anal Cunt took their name from a GG Allin song... which was recorded five years after they formed. In fact, Allin may have named the song after them - at any rate, he was familiar with the band at some point, as he once proposed they become his backing band.
  • Snark Bait: Frequently, the band has been lashed out by many critics for deliberately putting out offensive and terrible music when they really don't know that it's all done as a joke.
