* HiddenTrack: ''So Long And Thanks For All The Fish'' has a brief clip of Creator/HowardStern playing their song "Drugs Are Good" on the air hidden after the last track - Stern doesn't even let the song play long enough for the vocals to start, dismissing it for not "rocking" enough and suggesting they change their name to No Talent.

Added DiffLines:

* HulkSpeak: "Whoops I OD'd", sung from the perspective of someone who has overdosed on drugs, features a lot of this.


* AccentuateTheNegative: The liner notes for their greatest hits album, ''The Greatest Songs Ever Written (By Us)'' contain clippings of the most negative reviews the band has ever received, including one from a critic who claimed that a bite on his privates from a deer tick he'd recently gotten was pleasant compared to the album he was reviewing.

* ShoutOut: ''So Long And Thanks For All The Shoes'' is a play on a quote from ''Literature/TheHitchhickersGuideToTheGalaxy'': In the book, the last message the dolphins send out to mankind before departing a soon-to-be-destroyed earth is "so long and thanks for all the fish". They replaced "fish" with "shoes" because audiences tend to throw their footwear onstage at outdoor punk shows.

* ''First Ditch Effort'' (2016)

Added DiffLines:

* TakeThat: "Kill Rock Stars" was a very incensed take at [[BikiniKill Kathleen Hanna,]] written after she criticized the band earlier on.

Added DiffLines:

** Another Bush protest song was 'The Idiot Son Of An Asshole." As you can imagine, this one is a bit more on-the-nose and was only ever performed live.

Added DiffLines:

* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: "Philthy Phil Philanthropist."


* ApatheticCitizens: "Franco Un-American" is from the perspective of who's been largely apathetic to the greater issues of the world like global warming, animal rights and corrupt governments, only to become shocked by the damage they've done and vow to no longer sit idly by and let such things happen.



* DigitalPiracyIsOkay / DigitalPiracyIsEvil: Parodied in a hidden advertisement for ''The War On Errorism'' on their EP ''Regaining Unconsciousness'', which ends with El Hefe encouraging the listener to go pick up the album at their nearest independent record store, followed by a very fast, half-whispered "Also available for free on the internet."
