- Face of the Band: Jesse Lacey is the most recognizable member.
- Growing the Beard: Your Favorite Weapon was a fairly typical alternative-punk album, often with fairly weak lyrics and rough instrumentals. From Deja Entendu on, however, the band's sound was much more innovative and unique, with noticeably improved instrumentation and the lyrics are more original in style and subject matter.
- Hell Is That Noise: Welcome to Bangkok Starts with the distorted phrase "Good Luck Space Cadet" over and over again, with ominous, but light music playing in the background. Then the music gets loud, and when vocals come back, they're nothing but incoherent, tortured screams.
- Magnum Opus: Commonly agreed to be The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me. However a sizable number of fans will swear by Deja Entendu.
- There's even a minority of fans who consider Daisy to be the band's magnum opus. That's not to say all three albums aren't fantastic.
- Nightmare Fuel: Just about once a song from the latter half Deja Entendu onward, though Your Favorite Weapon isn't really light in its lyrical content either. Special mention goes to The Devil and God are Raging Inside of Me for its death-obsessed lyrical content, and Daisy, where the narrator seems to become progressively more and more mentally unhinged.
- A lot of songs on The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me. Special mentions to the jump in "Luca" and the the creepy choir in "Degausser".
- ''Welcome To Bangkok"
- Tear Jerker: "Play Crack the Sky" and "Jesus Christ" are two examples.
- "Me Vs. Maradona Vs. Elvis" and "Limousine" (which is also Nightmare Fuel).
- Most of The Devil And The God Are Raging Inside Me.
- "The Boy who Blocked His Own Shot"
