Forever The Sickest Kids' music provides examples of:

  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: In "She's a Lady", the narrator describes being in love with a girl he hates, who also points out all of his flaws.
  • Non-Appearing Title: "La La Laniey", in which the song alludes to a dangerous girl the singer is in love with, but never names her. The "la la la" part of the chorus just continues, and the girl is never named.
  • Repurposed Pop Song: "What Do You Want From Me" was used in the credits for Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

  • Silly Love Songs: The song "King For A Day" from their album Forever The Sickest Kids is about someone who would do anyone for a woman, saying that if he was king for a day, he would make her his queen.
  • Tsundere: "She Likes (Bittersweet Love)" is about one of these. 'She likes, she likes, she likes to fight and make up/ She likes, she likes, she likes to be alone/ She likes, she likes the heartache of a breakup/ She likes, she likes to be my bittersweet love.'

"That's Right, What Do You Want From Me?"
