* AnythingButThat: The narrator of "Achy Breaky Song" lists a number of schlocky music acts he'll gladly accept as a substitute for "Achy Breaky Heart."
-->''You can torture me with Donnie and Marie\\
You can play some Music/BarryManilow\\
You can play some schlock like Music/NewKidsOnTheBlock\\
Or any Music/VillagePeople song you know\\
Or play Music/VanillaIce -- hey, you can play him twice\\
Or you can play Music/TheBeeGees any day\\
But Mr. DJ, please, I'm begging on my knees\\
I just can't take no more of Billy Rae!''



* IncessantMusicMadness: The narrator of "Achy Breaky Song" absolutely ''despises'' "Achy Breaky Heart" by Billy Rae Cyrus and is so fed up with hearing it all the time that it's making him unhinged, to the point that he'd rather die than listen to it.
-->''Don't play that song, that achy breaky song\\
I think it's driving me insane\\
Please don't play that song, that irritating song\\
I'd rather have a pitchfork in my brain!''



* TakeThat: The video for "Jurassic Park" has the line "I'm afraid those things'll harm me/Cuz they sure don't act like Barney" accompanied by Barney's head getting bitten off by a real t-rex. When shown at his concerts, the crowd regularly responds with thunderous applause.

* TakeThat: SuckinessIsPainful: The narrator of "Achy Breaky Song" hates "Achy Breaky Heart" so much that listening to it makes him physically ill.
-->''Don't play that song, that achy breaky song\\
You know I hate that song a bunch\\
And if you play that song, that nauseating song\\
It might just make me lose my lunch!''

** "Achy Breaky Song" is all about one man's hatred of "Achy Breaky Heart." Al even lists other widely hated music acts which he claims [[DamnedByFaintPraise wouldn't be as bad as "Achy Breaky Heart"]] but are still bad enough to be compared to nails on a chalkboard.
* WouldRatherSuffer: The narrator of "Achy Breaky Song" lists all of the lame music acts he'd rather listen to than Billy Rae Cyrus, and when he runs out of musicians to name, he decides actual torture would be just as fine.
-->''Tie me to a chair and kick me down the stairs\\
Just please don't play that stupid song no more!''
