* SurprisinglyGentleSong: "Step Aside", [[LyricalDissonance although the lyrics are anything but gentle]]. They also tend to have one or two songs per album that are sung entirely as opposed to rapping.

->''Speak the truth don't you dare lie to me,\\
I've seen it all before the way you disagree,\\
The way you always attack all the thing that you say,\\
The way you turn your back and then you walk away,\\
Shut your mouth and open up your eyes,\\
You better take your time and try to realize,\\
That no one's free from sin and when I look at you,\\
I scream within WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU!''
-->"The Truth"


A RapMetal band that specialized on inverting GettingCrapPastTheRadar: A lot of attitude and bad language to cover the fact that pretty much all of their lyrics are heavy on morality and philosophy - under the thin though surface, the whole thing is very wholesome and politically correct.

Some of their lyrics features a VillainProtagonist - when you think of it, it becomes obvious that the literal message is simply a StrawmanPolitical for something the band dislikes, and that the real message is the exact opposite.

* MilesGloriosus: The song "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yG0QE9ce3U Biggest & The Best]]" is the perfect soundtrack for this kind of character (as well as for MarySue).

* MilesGloriosus: The song "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yG0QE9ce3U Biggest & The Best]]" is the perfect soundtrack for this kind of character (as well as for MarySue). The music video also made it a pretty good soundtrack for a JerkJock.


Added DiffLines:

* ThisIsGonnaSuck: In the music video for "Biggest And The Best", Zak spends most of it demolishing pre-teen boys at various sports. At the very end, the three boys appear with their fathers. The fathers are jacked, and roughly twice Zak's size. Zak stares at them for a few seconds, then sighs and looks down as the video ends.

Added DiffLines:

* CoverVersion: ''A Whole Lot of Nothing'' contains a cover of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iic38fcWr6Y "Manic Depression"]] by Music/JimiHendrix. They also covered [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zF7xyUf1ois "Shine On You Crazy Diamond"]] for a Music/PinkFloyd tribute album that ended up not being released; they instead released it as a B-side on the single release of "Out To Get Me".


* CarefulWithThatAxe: Jocke in the first verse of "Are You Man Enough?". Could also count as SopranoAndGravel, as he is echoing part of a line rapped by Zak.

* HollywoodHomely: The song "Hate yourself with style" is all about destructive ideals and negative self-image.



* WhatAnIdiot: Self-critiziing in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1K9P_aYKqQ The Price We Pay]]. As usual, it's ambiguous what this "self" is.
