Needs a Better Description

Tropes used in Bowling for Soup include:
  • Censor Bar: Blocking a jock's penis in the video for "High School Never Ends." It's labeled "Too small for TV."
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Their song "My Hometown."
  • Cover Version: “...Baby One More Time”; “Five O’Clock World”; “Gilligan’s Island Theme”; “I Melt With You”; “I Ran (So Far Away)”; “Jimmy Neutron Theme”; “Li’l Red Riding Hood”; “London Bridge”; “Sick Of Myself”; “Spanish Harlem”; “Speed Racer”; “Summer of ‘69”
    • "1985" is a song by their friends in SR-71. The Bowling for Soup version though is in a different key and has slight alterations to the lyrics to make the song less bitter and more of a celebration of The Eighties.
    • “Belgium”: A special case in that they themselves wrote and recorded the original, but continue to cover it in new styles as hidden tracks on their albums. Currently the alternate versions include acoustic, boy-band, and polka.
    • "Stacy's Mom:" Because everyone thought they did it anyway.
  • Double Entendre: "My Wena" seems like a long dick joke until The Reveal in the video, which shows that it's actually about a weiner dog named Wena.
  • The Eighties: "1985".
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: "The Bitch Song"
  • Fun with Foreign Languages: Three words that will change your life: "No Hablo Ingles."
  • Heavy Meta: "Really Cool Dance Song", which is rife with Take That against meaningless, generic dance music.
  • Heterosexual Life Partners: "BFFF" is essentially a love song from one partner to another, even saying "I'm tryin' to say I love you in a heterosexual way."
  • High School: "High School Never Ends".
  • Last-Second Word Swap: The entire chorus of "Friendly Goodbye".

  "Ain't that a bee with an itch. Ain't that a mother-trucker. You can go to H-E double hockey sticks and F yourself! 'Cause I'm flippin' gosh darn sick of all the S-words you put me though."

    • Also "99 Biker Friends"

 "Such a big man, such a little chick/I think it all goes back to your tiny/Pick- up truck in the driveway"

"Your friends think you're an asshole/And I do too/Over compensatin' for your small shoes"

  You tell her that you're sorry/Blame it on the beer/Your dad was mean to you/Your friends think you're/An asshole
