YMMV: Electric Six
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: During the outro of "Improper Dancing", STOP! (beat) CONTINUE!
  • Ear Worm: ALL THEIR SONGS, EVER.
  • Misaimed Fandom: Fans can take their jokey machismo a bit too seriously.
  • Mondegreen: "Rip it!" can easily be misinterpreted as Dick repeatedly screeching, "RIBBIT! RIBBIT!".
  • Narm Charm: SOLO!
  • Signature Song: Except for their relatively small dedicated fanbase, everyone remembers either "Gay Bar" or "Danger! High Voltage!," but nothing else. Some people also remember "Radio GaGa", which was much more popular in the UK.
  • Squick: Nude grandma in the "Body Shot" music video. Fat sweaty, topless men from the same video.
    • "Infected Girls," which is about humping STD-infected girls, because who needs protection when you're already infected?
    • "Showtime" is probably a subversion, depending on interpretation and taste in condiments. At the end of the song, there is a quiet, wet squelching sound. Out of context, it's unexpected, but it makes sense when you consider all the times Dick Valentine has said, "put a little mustard on it".
  • So Bad, It's Good: Much of their lyrics.
  • Tear Jerker: Believe it or not, "Watching Evil Empires Falling Apart" or "Steal Your Bones".
