!!The musician:
* AwardSnub: In this case, he's not the victim but the perpetrator. See InternetBackdraft below.
* CoveredUp:
** "Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime", a cover of The Korgis. Also, he covered "Diamond Dogs" by David Bowie.
** On the receiving end, Beck wrote "Feel Good Time" with William Orbit, but deciding not to use it, allowed {{Music/Pink}} to record the song using the backing track he and Orbit had already prepared. The original Beck version leaked out later and is nowhere near as well known as the Pink version. To a lesser extent, Music/JohnnyCash 's cover of "Rowboat." ensured more interest in "Stereopathetic Soulmanure" which was otherwise an obscure album.
* EpicRiff: "E-Pro", and to a lesser extent, "Loser."
* InternetBackdraft: Music/{{Beyonce}}'s SelfTitledAlbum has been hailed as one of the greatest albums of its time, and when it was up for the Album of the Year GrammyAward, everyone predicted it would be an easy win. But Beck, a prominent artist of yesteryear that's been floating under the radar, rises out of nowhere and wins it for ''Morning Phase''. Saying everyone was shocked would be an {{understatement}}, but saying the Beyhive (Beyonce's fanbase) was upset would be an ''even bigger {{understatement}}''. Hell, the Beyhive even managed to hack Beck's Wikipedia page to call him a ''thief'' that ''robbed'' Beyonce of the award. Music/KanyeWest has also stated that by accepting the award, Beck did not recognize "true artistry" and should've flat-out given Beyonce the award.
* MisaimedFandom: As mentioned on the main page, Beck does ''not'' like the fact that "Loser" was encouraged as a slacker anthem when he had spent several years being homeless.
* NightmareFuel: The [[JumpScare loud]] [[CarefulWithThatAxe distorted yell]] in "Where It's At", which sounds extremely inhuman and more like a tortured robot.
* SignatureSong: "Loser" is far and away his most popular song. "E-Pro" is easily in second place in the US, whereas "Where It's At" is elsewhere.
* StylisticSuck:
** That little silly solo part in "Girl". Unlike the rest of the song, it sounds like a bunch of random notes played on untuned guitar.
** Also, if we go by his initial idea, the lyrics to "Loser".
** His vocal delivery on the verses of "Gamma Ray" is full of stuttering and hesitant pauses, as though he was either nervous or just struggling to remember the lyrics, while the chorus is sung much more confidently. Beck himself has said "I was trying to sound as bad as I could, for a laugh".
** Various early songs, such as "Trouble All My Days" (from ''Golden Feelings'') and "Total Soul Future (Eat It)" (from ''Stereopathetic Soulmanure''), have Beck detuning his guitar intentionally badly, to create bizarre and hilarious music.

!!The anime/manga:
* EarWorm: Many of the songs, especially the opening.
* HollywoodPudgy: Koyuki, with no sense of sarcasm chides ''Maho'' of not eating so much or she'll get fat. Unfortunately, that's [[ValuesDissonance Japan for ya.]]
* {{Narm}}:
** ''GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE!!!'' (Ryusuke calling out on Koyuki, after the latter unintentionally breaks a guitar the former had given him in an early episode. [[spoiler:Turns out that the guitar, which Ryusuke cherished for thinking it belonged to Eddie Lee, was a replica of Eddie's usual one, and all was good between them again.]]) It's only funny because of Ryusuke's accentized English.
** Averted in the English dub, where the lack of an 'Engrish' accent helps the line's effectiveness.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: The gentle guitar chords of "Moon On The Water" sound a lot like Ednaswap's Wacko Magneto version of "Torn".
