- Genius Bonus: Melora Creager is a history buff, and it shows in her lyrics. For instance, "1816, The Year Without A Summer" happened in Real Life pretty much as the lyrics describe, and the Thursday Christian referenced on Oh Perilous World was a real person (son of the leader of the Mutiny on the Bounty).
- Misattributed Song: A song called "Life 101" by the band Call Me Alice has been misattributed to them, and one or both names will often come up as a song title under a search for Rasputina.
- Nightmare Fuel: "Psychopathic Logic" especially considering the Reality Subtext.
- Tear Jerker: “A Quitter”.
