Although Darlington composes a wide variety of material, he is best-known and gained most of his popularity for fun, silly tongue-in-cheek pop-punk styled songs that embrace or poke fun at popular culture, or both. Many songs deal with with serious subject matter dealing with his personal life, while others were written about famous people, or were silly, obnoxious punk rock style songs. Darlington's music is influenced by the Beach Boys, Elvis Costello, That Dog, Ramones, Rancid, Weezer, Ashtray Babyhead, The Bangles, the Stray Cats, and Hagfish.
Darlington is endorsed by Daisy Rock Guitars.
