- "Everything Right Is Wrong Again", the first track of their self-titled debut album, and it's a great way to kick it off with its awesome synth riffs, Linnell's energy-filled vocals and in the middle of the song, it slows down and becomes psychedelic.
- "Don't Let's Start", which was their first single. Although it didn't chart, the accompanying music video gained a ton of air time on MTV and is a prime example of the channel's early appeal to oddball acts such as them.
- "Hide Away Folk Family" features John Flansburgh's haunting vocals backed by John Linnell's equally haunting accordion work.
- "32 Footsteps" and its awesome harmonica solo and Flansburgh's scatting.
- Flood has multiple examples:
- "Doctor Worm", their studio single off of their live album Severe Tire Damage, is one of their best post-Duo songs.
- The entirety of the album Here Comes Science, especially to any passionate scientists in the field and anyone looking for some good edutainment.
