* After getting a spanking from his dad, having all his rock posters torn down, and being grounded for a week, Jables prays for guidance to a poster of Ronnie James Dio (which survived being ripped to shreds by not being visible behind his room door).

* Meta: getting Music/MeatLoaf to sing in a movie for ''the first time [[Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow in thirty years]]!!'' It apparently took a lot of arm-twisting, if only because nobody else would be such ideal casting as Jack Black's father.


* ''The Pick of Destiny'' has its moments, but what stands out is when, while wearing the titular pick around his neck, Jables screams a high note into a microphone, which promptly ''bursts into flames''.

* The film wastes no time and establishes its [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotAwesome tone]] and [[RefugeInAudacity attitude]] in the very first line of the opening song: "A long-ass fuckin' time ago, in a town called Kickapoo..." Then it promptly segues into young Jables' hilarious [[ClusterFBomb "tasty jam,"]] performed for his [[WhiteAngloSaxonProtestant WASP]] family just as they're in the middle of [[SeriousBusiness saying grace before dinner.]] Chances are you either love the movie immediately or are simply not the intended audience.
