* BigLippedAlligatorMoment:
** "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.
* BrokenBase:
** Over almost any post- ''Pork Soda'' album.
*** ''Tales from the Punchbowl'', excellent prog or a failed experiment?
*** ''The Brown Album'', great garage rock, or amateur lo-fi crap? "Shake Hands with Beef" is the one song exempt from this argument.
*** ''Primus and the Chocolate Factory'' , charming nostalgic trip or a self-indulgent Les Claypool project forced to be a Primus album?
** Who the best drummer is. Is it Herb for his technical ability and creativity, Brain for his groove and power, or Jay Lane for his funkiness and ability to seve as a medium between the other two?
* EarWorm: ''Jerry was a race car driver, he drove so goddamn fast...''
* EpicRiff: 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.
** "[[MeaningfulName Renegade]]... C'mere, boy..."
* MisaimedFandom: Les was particularly perplexed by those who embraced "Lacquer Head" as a stoner anthem.
* NauseaFuel: The disgusting shirtless man serving up disgustingly-shot nachos at the start of the video for "Jerry Was a Race Car Driver".
* NightmareFuel: 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 [[{{Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory}} 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 EvilLaugh.
*** 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.
