* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: ''Super Sound'' is almost completely different from any of their later albums, with the sample-heave late nineties big beat aesthetic.

Added DiffLines:

* NiceHat: "Ms. Wilhelmina and Her Hat": in a world where all the ladies wear "great tufted beasts upon their head", Amelia Wilhemina's hat is the fanciest of all. "Folds and flaps, tassels plus trim, / pink parrots on the brim. / Your hatís a ruling crown, / hold it high when you get down."

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/AngryBirdsGo'' soundtrack (2013)


Added DiffLines:

* EpicRocking: ''Spare Time Machine'' has a few, due to the psychedelic influence: "Ms. Wilhelmina and Her Hat" (6:25), "Last of the Great Explorers" (6:54), and "Captain Carter's Fathoms" (7:09).


Added DiffLines:

* HeavyMetalUmlaut: Steampunk acute accent? Anyway, "Deluxé" is pronounced exactly the same as "Deluxe", if the narrator on "Intro" (from ''Beatitude'') is to be believed.


Added DiffLines:

* NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup: Allegedly, the band ''deliberately'' re-used the original master tapes from ''Spare Time Machine'' to record the parts for ''Queen of the Wave''.


* SampledUp: TheProdigy's "Take Me to the Hospital" sampled from "Salami Fever".


* HiddenTrack: ''Beatitude'' has a whole hidden EP tacked on the end: three full songs, plus an intro and outro track.
* KlatchianCoffee:
** In the "Go Supersonic" video, drinking the Supersonic-sized "Hot Sauce" causes the characters to hallucinate wildly.
** In the "A Night and a Day" video, the coffee causes the previously-stoic Yol Gurro to dance wildly, shoot laser bolts from his feet, and fly.



* MurderBallad: "Cruel Youth", about a boy who kills several girls by drowning them. His intended seventh victim finds out what he intends, and she drowns him first.

* NoEnding: "Black Cadillac" abruptly ends with
the "A Night and a Day" video, the coffee causes the previously-stoic Yol Gurro to dance wildly, shoot laser bolts from his feet, and fly. lyrics, "Little girl / feel so bad / I'm gonna..."


Added DiffLines:

* SampledUp: TheProdigy's "Take Me to the Hospital" sampled from "Salami Fever".


* CrapsaccharineWorld: The "Ask for a Kiss" music video is set in a world with a weird mix of cartoon logic and real-world consequences. For example, a ''Space Invaders''-esque videogame enemy has a protracted, painful death upon getting shot, and an anthropomorphic drum kit doesn't appreciate being drummed.



* EverythingIsAnInstrument: They build a lot of their own instruments, including one that plays an entire ''cave''.

Added DiffLines:

* RereleaseTheSong: The original, Finnish version of ''Super Sound'' had a lot of uncleared samples. For international release, the band rerecorded the album, with original instrumental parts replacing the samples they couldn't clear.


Added DiffLines:

* TooDumbToLive: The boy from "Cruel Youth", who turns his back on ''after'' announcing that he intends to kill her.

* {{Retraux}}: The "A Night and a Day" and "Super Sonic Sound System" videos are very convincing pastiches of kitschy 60s TV, with the appropriate video quality (or lack thereof), to boot.

** PD consider the mid-1950s to the mid-1970s to be the golden age of pop music, and use genuinely vintage recording equipment (in many cases, using the actual mixers, pre-amplifiers, or tape decks that their musical heroes used) to achieve the sound of that era.
