** "Cheers Pricks" is a song from the perspective of a self-loathing drug addict who is so far gone he can only beg for a MercyKill from anyone who will listen.

* EarWorm: Just try to get the bass in "Ocean Song" out of your head.
** The bass line in "Less Sex" also qualifies, sounding almost like Music/NineInchNails' "Closer".
** Every single song on their SelfTitledAlbum, with special mention going to "The First Supper" and "The Hit".


** Also with Music/{{Slint}}, due to the thematic similarities between tracks like "Ocean Song" and "Guest House" and Slint's "Good Morning, Captain". The math rock influence on both bands is another factor in this.

** Also with Music/{{Slint}}, due to their similar lyrical themes and DarkerAndEdgier takes on the thematic similarities math rock genre. In particular, fans like to draw comparisons between tracks like "Ocean Song" "The Virgin" and "Don Aman", as well as "Guest House" and Slint's with "Good Morning, Captain". The math rock influence on both bands is another factor in this.


Added DiffLines:

** There's just something hilarious about the band's first ever recorded song being called "Hello Assholes". Other funny titles include "Room Full of Hard-ons and Nowhere to Sit Down", "My Stereo Has Mono and So Does My Girlfriend", "I Don't Give a Shit About Wood, I'm Not a Chemist", "Pants, Meet Shit", "Crotch Buffet", and "The Fuck Whisperer".


Added DiffLines:

* HarsherInHindsight: "The Virgin" comes across as an uncannily prescient prediction of the "incel" phenomenon that would become common among certain sections of young men on the internet in the mid-2010's, even ending with the implication that the protagonist's SelfInflictedHell drives them to commit a mass shooting; uncomfortably similar to incidents like the Isla Vista shootings or the Toronto van attack.


* FunnyMoments: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=top2uDnAWY4 This]] live video from 2006 (Warning: NSFW), wherein a [[AlcoholInducedIdiocy visibly drunk Lex]] is about to play the last song, has a non-conversation with an audience member and abruptly leaves when he's told the cops were arresting him for indecent exposure.

* NarmCharm: Lex's vocals on ''Hell Songs'', which have frequently been compared to a drunk cowboy, or Music/ElvisPresley being tortured. While his singing should by all rights be ridiculous and hilarious, it fits the music so well that it makes the album even ''more'' disconcerting and abrasive than it would be with regular HarshVocals.



* TheWoobie: It's really hard to not feel sorry for Paul in "Ocean Song". Even moreso if you consider him to be the same character in "The Virgin", "The Flammable Man", and "Guest House".

Added DiffLines:

** Few albums are as accurately titled as ''Hell Songs''. The whole thing is ''so'' dissonant and abrasive it's almost uncomfortable to listen to. Special mention goes to the [[NothingIsScarier unnervingly quiet]] last two minutes of "Cheers Pricks" and Lex's heavy breathing in the background of "The Fuck Whisperer".

* EndingFatigue: Not an extreme example, but the outro to "Ocean Song" goes on a bit long.


** "Guest House" as well, for those who love quoting the MemeticMutation line "LET ME IN".
