  • Crosses the Line Twice: "A Lap Dance Is So Much Better When the Stripper Is Crying" begins with "I was lonelier than Kunta Kinte at a Merle Haggard concert..." It not only goes downhill from there, but somehow manages to slide further and further with each passing line.
  • Ear Worm
    • Regardless of whether or not you enjoy the band, a vast majority of their material is unanimously infectious.
    "You and me, baby, ain't nothin' but mammals so let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel..."
    "Must've blown a fuse, nothing's going on, lamer than The Pope, climb a wall like King Kong..."
    "Here comes trouble, shut the front door. You need to not give a shit a little more..."
    "The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire. We don't need no water, let the motherfucker burn. Burn, motherfucker. Burn."
    "Hey, you. You dance like those assholes I see in old Molly Ringwald movies. I think you're as uncool as me."
  • Epic Riff: The bass line to "The Bad Touch".
    • The bobbing guitar licks in "Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo" are way catchier than they have any right to be.

  • Harsher in Hindsight: "The Bad Touch" makes a Siskel and Ebert joke. Gene Siskel died just three months before the single was released.note 
  • Memetic Mutation: "Aww, shit! Here comes Pac-Man!" from the Hooray for Boobies cut "Mope". No doubt aided by the famously strange web animation using that moment.
  • The Pete Best: Daddy Long Legs (who wrote much of their first album) left the group right after its release due to internal disagreement. After he left, the band put out One Fierce Beer Coaster, which landed them into the mainstream. He later had some more niche success after forming horrorcore group Wolfpac, who are notable for their frequent collaborations with Insane Clown Posse.

  • Refrain from Assuming: "The Bad Touch" ("the Discovery Channel song") and "Fire Water Burn" ("The Roof Is On Fire", which ironically is the title of the Sampled Up example below).
  • Sampled Up: The Pet Shop Boys B-side they used for "The Bad Touch", and "Fire Water Burn" incorporates the chorus of "The Roof Is on Fire" by Rock Master Scott & the Dynamic Three. "The Ballad of Chasey Lane" is based in part on a Depeche Mode B-side.
  • Signature Song: "The Bad Touch" and "Fire Water Burn".
  • Squick: As if the many poop jokes on Hefty Fine weren't enough, "Diarrhea Runs in the Family" consists solely of a band member's bowel movement.
    • Oh, and let's not forget the uncensored version of "The Bad Touch", which, instead of concluding with the mime getting roadkilled, concludes with the band members spraying around and eating fake turd.
    • Some live performances of "Screwing You on the Beach at Night" are accompanied by a video on the back wall featuring a naked guy getting kneed repeatedly in the genitals. Why? Who knows.
