YMMV: Primus
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment:
    • "Salmon Men" from the end of Green Naugahyde
    • "Grandad's Little Ditty" from Sailing the Seas of Cheese.
    • "Lermaninoff" from Primus and the Chocolate Factory, an entire five-second track where Larry LaLonde does a guitar cover of the Mozart excerpt that serves as Wonka's musical lock.
  • Ear Worm: Jerry was a race car driver, he drove so goddamn fast...
  • Epic Riff: Most famously, "Jerry Was a Race Car Driver" and "My Name is Mud." But also "Tommy the Cat", "Groundhog Day", "Hamburger Train", "Electric Uncle Sam" and "Lacquer Head." Most of them tend to be on the bass.
  • Misaimed Fandom: Les was particularly perplexed by those who embraced "Lacquer Head" as a stoner anthem.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The majority of "Pork Soda" is filled with this.
    • A lot of Primus and the Chocolate Factory qualifies for this if you're familiar with the original songs, but fittingly, "Semi-Wondrous Boat Ride" is a particularly triumphant example, being a cover of the film's most infamously scary scene. Well, there's that and the fact that Wonka's psychotic scream is replaced with Les giving an Evil Laugh.
      • The fact that the album closes with Les tearfully singing "Pure Imagination" while Larry's guitar part imitates a passing emergency siren doesn't help.
  • Uncanny Valley: The video for "Wynona's Big Brown Beaver"
