Although Ookla the Mok has released many songs about more universal topics like relationships and lost love, they are best known for filk songs that cater to the interests of listeners at science fiction and comic book conventions, where the band makes the bulk of their public appearances. For example, their song titled "Arthur Curry" from Less Than Art pokes fun at Aquaman and the way his super-powers don't seem to compare favorably with the rest of the Super Friends. Another example is "Stop Talking About Comic Books Or I'll Kill You" from Super Secret. "Song of Kong" from Smell No Evil takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the relationship between King Kong and Godzilla. "W.W.S.D.?" from oh okay LA asks its listeners to ask themselves "What would Scooby do?". "Mr. W" from the same album paints a nightmare scenario of Mr. Worf being in command of Star Trek's starship Enterprise. And "Spot The Cat" from Dave Lennon sets to music a poem originally read by Star Trek's Data.
Ookla the Mok were the musical guests of honor at the 2007 installment of MarsCon (Bloomington, Minnesota).
Rand Bellavia and Adam English will be the International Guests of Honour at the 2009 British Filk Convention
