  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: During the outro of "Improper Dancing", STOP! (beat) CONTINUE!
    • The falling xylophone for one brief pre-chorus bar in "(Who The Hell Just) Call My Phone".
    • Both "Pleasing Interlude"s on Senor Smoke, for how little context is given for either of them.
  • Misaimed Fandom: Fans can take their jokey machismo a bit too seriously.
  • Mondegreen: "Rip it!" can easily be misinterpreted as Dick repeatedly screeching, "RIBBIT! RIBBIT!".
  • Narm Charm: SOLO!

  • Signature Song: Except for their relatively small dedicated fanbase, everyone remembers either "Gay Bar" or "Danger! High Voltage!," but nothing else. Some people also remember "Dance Commander" and "Radio GaGa", which were popular in the UK though not as big as the other two songs mentioned. The good news is, their signature songs ensure that they can always tour the UK and get people interested in hearing them.
  • Squick: Nude grandma in the "Body Shot" music video. Fat sweaty, topless men from the same video.
    • "Infected Girls," which is about humping STD-infected girls, because who needs protection when you're already infected?
    • "Showtime" is probably a subversion, depending on interpretation and taste in condiments. At the end of the song, there is a quiet, wet squelching sound. Out of context, it's unexpected, but it makes sense when you consider all the times Dick Valentine has said, "put a little mustard on it".

  • So Bad, It's Good: Much of their lyrics.
  • Tear Jerker: Believe it or not, "Watching Evil Empires Falling Apart" or "Steal Your Bones".
    • "Cheryl vs. Darryl", an unsettling Downer Ending to Mustang about an acting couple whose relationship is put on shaky ground after being cast in a rape scene.
