YMMV / MF DOOM

Go To

  • Awesome Music: Most would cite Madvillainy.
    • His albums released under his Viktor Vaughn and King Geedorah aliases are worth checking out.
  • Continuity Lockout: While it isn't super-hard to get caught up, some aspects of DOOM's work rely on the listener knowing a bit about his backstory and other work, and the fact that he did not always release his work under the MF DOOM/DOOM moniker.
    • One notable example is "Viktor Vaughn" on "Fancy Clown" off Madvillainy - the song becomes a lot funnier when you know that it is DOOM in his Viktor Vaughn persona rapping to himself on the track, but many first-time listeners may not be aware, as Madvillainy was one of his breakthrough works.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: DOOM's collaboration with Gorillaz, on their album Demon Days, is titled "November Has Come". DOOM would pass away on October 31, 2020, the day before November.
  • Memetic Mutation: I'm here to see MF Doom.

    • Doritos, Cheetos, or Fritos.note 
  • Signature Song: The primary candidates for this are either "Doomsday", "Rapp Snitch Knishes" (for his solo work), "Accordion", or "All Caps" (for his work in Madvillain)
  • Unintentional Period Piece: The Mouse And The Mask is firmly dated to the early to mid 2000's era of Adult Swim, with every show featured on the album (such as Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Space Ghost Coast to Coast, and Sealab 2021) having ended within a decade of the album's release. The track "El Chupa Nibre" is further dated with its allusions to Futurama and Family Guy, both shows that Adult Swim later lost the rerun rights to.note
