YMMV: Butthole Surfers
  • Nightmare Fuel: A good portion of their repertoire; for example, one part of "Jimi" sounds like a cartoon character getting raped.
    • Even if you know that it's just a band member's pet pitbull, the growls that appear throughout "Mark Says Alright" can be disturbing.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: Averted. The band admits that they did a lot of drugs, acid especially. It explains a lot, really.
    • In the early days, Gibby would often go onstage drunk, stoned, and/or tripping on various psychedelics (it wasn't at all unusual for him to be under the influence of multiple drugs at once during their live shows in the 1980's). Gibby has also admitted to taking six hits of blotter acid meant for the entire band before a performance at one point, and a possibly apocryphal story features him preparing for a recording session by throwing a handful of acid in a bathtub he'd filled before getting in and spending the next three days straight tripping.
