These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
A Day in the Limelight: Government Plates is all about Flatlander's production, with much less of an emphasis on MC Ride and Hill than their past works.
Epileptic Trees: Their ARGs spawn a lot of them, as well as Flatlander's whereabouts. For instance, a sizable amount of people believe that Flatlander was in Korea for SXSW, and that Hill and Ride were playing over a pre-recording of Hill's drums. (Though this is not beyond reason, Skype calls have a lag to them that would've made playing live over skype extremely difficult and impractical, along with Flatlander's website changing to pictures from Korea around the same time.)
In the few interviews we have of the band, Hill does all the talking with Andy chirping in every so often. MC Ride remains silent.
Fan Adjective: Noided, a word that's been around since the 90s to mean "annoyed", but has been repurposed in the lyrics of "I've Seen Footage" to mean "paranoid". In practice, most Death grips fans use it in the context of "excited" or "psyched".
Hell Is That Noise: "Full Moon (Death Classic)" features strange, distorted, androgynous groaning and gasping noises during the first verse, and the loud, threatening chorus (consisting of MC Ride screaming "GET 'EM" repeatedly) doesn't help.
The freaky klaxon noise in "The Fever".
The instrumental for "Lock Your Doors" with all the unexplained screaming.
Magnificent Bastard: The whole band after the entire marketing campaign of No Love Deep Web. The sheer scale of their ARG made it impossible not to notice it, and putting it on BitTorrent for free the day of the release automatically put it at number one on The Pirate Bay, and to top it all off, who wasn't going to hear about "That album with the boner on the cover"?
On top of that, the conflict that sparked the leak ended with Death Grips famous and with total artistic control. After having the album completed months in advance, they couldn't get their label to so much as listen to it, the release date almost ended up delayed, and at one point, the label tried to take ownership of their masters from them. So, they leak the e-mails explaining this and the label drops them, with no further repercussions. How's that for "well-played?"
Magnum Opus: Even within the first months of the release of The Money Store people debated whether or not they'll ever be able to top it.
The aforementioned line about the taxi from "Hunger Games"
"Fuck That" dedicates several lines to the threat of hitting the listener so hard that their face ends up on their scalp, as well as what would befall the listener as a result. It would be disturbing were the mental image not outright hilarious.
Narm Charm: The music videos. MC Ride's deranged and extreme delivery, for some.
The entirety of NO LOVE DEEP WEB is this. The instrumentals for "Hunger Games," "Lock Your Doors," and all of "World Of Dogs" are the strongest examples.
Their ARGs, in which they frequently post very cryptic and creepy pictures with hidden puzzles all over 4chan and the Deep Web, and generally messing with everyone heavily.
The video for "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," which is nothing but an uncomfortably close shot of MC Ride's deranged, laughing, and smiling face (when he's not looking freaked the fuck out), implied to be after snorting some blow. MC Ride.Smiling. For an extended period of time.
