They are not a "comedy" band, but many of their songs, like "Bikini Sports Ponchin", "Chu Chu Lovely Muni Muni Mura Mura Purin Purin Boron Nurururerorero" and "Houchou Hasami (Cutter Knife Dosu Kiri)" have pretty damn funny lyrics when contrasted with the upbeat tunes of the songs.
The band are probably best known for their songs "What's Up People?" and "Zetsubou Billy", which are the second opening and closing themes of the Death Note anime, and are generally harder edged and less hilariously perverted than most of their songs ("A kindergartener is fine, too.").
Their music contains examples of
- Alternative Metal: Mash-up genres with impunity.
- Dissonant Serenity
- Expository Theme Tune: "What's Up People" and "Zetsubou Billy" are this to 'Death Note.
- Filk Song: F. Its about Dragon Ball's Freeza.
- Funk Metal: Driving slap-bass taken Up to Eleven just sounds like Funk, especially in the hands of their bassist.
- Gratuitous English: "Koi No Mega Lover" - just from the title you can hear this making its insidious presence felt.
- Their name itself doesn't make grammatical sense either, does it?
- Hardcore Punk: Had their roots in this.
- Indecipherable Lyrics
- Last-Note Nightmare: "What's Up, People?"
- Lyrical Dissonance: "Chu Chu Lovely Muni Muni Mura Mura Purin Purin Boron Nurururerorero".
- "My Girl" from the Greatest The Hits EP is a (mostly) upbeat Nu-metal track (with shades of 80s glam rock/metal). If you didn't know Japanese, you'd be forgiven for thinking it was a light-hearted song about a relationship. It's actually incredibly dirty and about how much they love pussy.
- Neoclassical Punk Zydeco Rockabilly: They combine and cross genres more-or-less when they feel like it.
- Nu-metal: Cite Korn as an influence and mix clean, harsh and rapped vocals. Not your typical Nu-metal band, though, it's safe to say.
- Metal Scream: Daisuke provides some very impressively ranged harsh vocals. Luckily for him, Ryo takes charge of the clean vocals, so his larynx probably isn't completely stripped out.
- Refuge in Vulgarity: One would think their album Kusoban and the first song on the list Koi no Sweet Kuso Meriken  would be a red flag for this.
- X Meets Y: Soa D meets Korn meets Japan.
