Freak on a Trope:
- Animated Music Video: "Freak on a Leash".
- Fun with Acronyms: "B.B.K." stands for "big black cock", though not as in the usual sense - it's Jonathan Davis' nickname for Jack and Coke.
- Hidden Track: A weird case, in that to avoid a 13 song tracklist, the CD opens with 12 five second silent tracks (a literal minute of silence!) before "It's On!" actually starts.
- Hitless Hit Album: "Freak on a Leash", the highest charting song on the album, only peaked at 106 in the US.
- Music Video Overshadowing: "Freak on a Leash". Song: Jonathan Davis is frequently worried and suffering (because of how the music industry treats him). Video: In an animated section directed by Todd MacFarlane, the girl from the album's cover is nearly shot. Then comes literal Bullet Time as the bullet breaks the fourth wall out of the artwork and starts blasting everything before meeting the band, who "returns it to sender".
- One-Word Title: "Pretty", "Justin", "Seed", and "Cameltosis".
- Too Dumb to Live: The album art, made by Todd MacFarlane and his cohorts, depicts a girl hopscotching on a cliff. And worse, there's a line of children waiting to do it as well - fitting both the album title, and the old saying "if everyone jumped off a cliff, would you do it too?"
