  • Album Filler: "Til depotet" from the Evig pint album is most often accused of being this. It has even been partly disowned by Ottesen himself.
  • And the Fandom Rejoiced: The surprise announcement of Våre demoner, on which were included songs of which only a small number of fans had heard demo or low quality live versions, some dating back to the very earliest days of the band's existence.
    • Conversely, there was an even smaller grouping of die hard fans who were disappointed to see what they considered to be "secrets found a little off the beaten track" become available to anyone and everyone.
  • Crazy Awesome: It might as well be the name of the band.
    • To start, the band considers an oil drum and a crowbar a percussion instrument. And their pump organist occasionally wears a gas mask.
  • Epic Riff: Plenty. "Ompa til du dør", "Maestro", "På ditt skift", "170", the list goes on...
  • Ho Yay: Plenty between most of the members of the band. Janove has kissed (at least) two of his bandmates on-stage. And they're most of them married men, make of it what you will.
  • Indecipherable Lyrics: Often considered this, even by fellow Norwegians, due to their quirky dialect.
  • Misattributed Song: "Venner for livet", a song by fellow Norwegian group Postgirobygget, circulates on peer-to-peer networks, where it is attributed to Kaizers Orchestra. The group have expressed frustration with this, even going as far as to label the song "a piece of shit."
  • Painful Rhyme: Janove and Geir's songwriting have both been accused of this by both fans and critics.
    • The most Egregious example is surely "Toxic blod", in which the word "mean" is used to rhyme with "nitroglyserin"; as in the untranslated English word "mean" used in a Norwegian language song. It doesn't even have slang status.
  • Tear Jerker: "170", "Bris" and "Die Polizei", to start. Possibly "Gruvene på 16", if only because of the melody and the weary way Janove sounds.
    • In Real Life, the owner of Kaizers Orchestra's then-record label, Remo Rehder, begun crying upon first hearing the instrumental outro of "Drøm hardt (Requiem part I)".
