Added DiffLines:

* WhatDidIDoLastNight: Where "Detachable Penis" starts. It gets a lot weirder from there.


* CoverVersion: Versions of Richard Hell's "Betrayal Takes Two" and {{Music/Buzzcocks}}' "Love You More" have appeared on King Missile albums. A few other times, they've done covers as part of [[CoverAlbum tribute albums]]: Music/TheRutles' "Doubleback Alley", {{Music/REM}}'s "Get Up", Music/TheBeatles' "We Can Work It Out", and Orleans' "Still The One".

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Atlantic Records insisted on a placing a Parental Advisory warning label on their album ''Happy Hour'', which the band weren't happy with. According to John S. Hall, for their next album, ''[[SelfTitledAlbum King Missile]]'', they submitted a self-censored lyric sheet to the label, but kept the cursing in the recorded versions of songs, figuring no one at the label would actually listen to the music. The ploy apparently worked - despite probably having about as much objectionable content in it as ''Happy Hour'' did, the self-titled album had no such warning on the cover.

Added DiffLines:

* IAmTheBand: John S. Hall is the only constant member.

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyBirdCameo: "Wind-Up Toys" first appeared on John Hall's solo album, ''Real Men'', but in name only. Though the lyrics and title were the same, the music was completely different.


* ClusterFBomb: ''The Psychopathology Of Everyday Life'' is one of their most profanity-filled albums, mainly due to two songs: "The President" is a 3 minute rant against UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush that borders on angrish and contains 61 uses of the word "fuck", while "The Pain Series" is a set of equally profanity-filled reactions to physical pain, the causes ranging from hitting one's thumb with a hammer to getting a paper cut. The album cover lampshades this with a mock parental advisory label, reading "WARNING: CONTAINS LOTS OF CURSES: DO NOT BUY!"
