* DudeLooksLikeALady: Stanton. One comic strip has a bodyguard mistake him for a woman, and in the video for "Art Girl," the titular girl Godfrey finally musters up the courage to talk to turns out to be [[WholesomeCrossdresser Stanton in a wig and a skirt]]. Then they both see an actual art girl walk by, [[HereWeGoAgain and are immediately smitten]].

* {{Main/Beatnik}}: Godfrey.
* CoverVersion: They've posted a few covers on their [=YouTube=] page. Examples include:
** Stanton singing [[Music/NickiMinaj "Chun Li"]] with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JarO7nPT_Go piano accompaniment]].
** An Electro-Dixie/Zydeco version of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vk_D04P_yUU "Big Girls (You Are Beautiful)"]] by {{Music/MIKA}}.

* ShoutOut: The band make some very {{Music/Queen}}-esque poses in the "I Told You I Was Poor" video.
* TakeOverTheWorld: Apparently Festus wants to, as hinted in one strip.
-->'''Man:''' Wouldn't you love to live in a world that was free of war, weapons and violence?
-->'''Festus:''' My flamin' ''oath'' I would! [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Can you imagine how easy it would be to]] ''[[ComicallyMissingThePoint take]]'' [[ComicallyMissingThePoint a world like that?]]
* WhatTheHellHero: Stanton to Godfrey and Lucy at the end of the "I Told You I Was Poor" video. The latter two manage to escape into a nearby carriage...and leave Stanton [[OffWithHisHead stranded at the guillotine]].
