Bystand Me - S10-E2

Continuity mistake: While Hank, Peggy, and Bobby are asking for help picking up the papers with the dangerous ammonia and bleach recipe, a person in back of the group they are talking to that was originally wearing a dark red hat, red shirt, and blond hair switches to a pink, light blue shirt, and brown hair. A window also suddenly appears behind this individual, where there wasn't one before. (00:17:49 - 00:18:11)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Peggy Hill's mother seems to change over the course of the show. Prior to the ninth season, whenever Peggy's mother is seen (in the present or in flashbacks), she is portrayed as an older version of Peggy. In the ninth season's premiere episode, Peggy's mother is a lean, leather-skinned rancher who disdains Peggy and lives on a secluded ranch. The change in facial features and appearance is too much to just be a change in style as well.

Shins of the Father - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: In this episode only, Hank admires his father and defends, or dismisses, most of Cotton's bad qualities. As Peggy says: "You just cannot see your father for who he is." Throughout the rest of the series, Hank and Cotton's relationship is tense and unpleasant. In the episode "The Father, The Son, and JC" (Season Six), Bobby can't even find an old photo in which Hank and Cotton are both happy.

Lummie

Leanne's Saga - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: When Leanne first arrives, she kisses Luanne, and gets red lipstick marks on her. Later, when Leanne and Luanne are near the bathroom and Leanne says "I knew you would understand" (about Bill), she kisses Luanne, but there are no marks from her lipstick. Even if she mostly kissed Luanne's neck, at least part of some of the marks should show when Luanne turns to leave (after talking to Peggy).

Gone with the Windstorm - S9-E13

Continuity mistake: Just after Dale, Nancy and Peggy get past the police blockade in the news van there is an overhead shot of the van and you can see Dale doesn't have his fake moustache on anymore. The next shot he is taking off the fake moustache.

Next of Shin - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: As Hank is having his discussion with Cotton in the Casino you can see Cotton's red (playing) chips in front of him. In one shot Hank stands up and the angle shows Cotton from over Hank's shoulder and the red chips look black and badly damaged. The next shot from the same angle the chips are back to being red and completely fine. (00:19:55)

Aisle 8A - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: When Hank takes Connie to the doctors, he is in the waiting room. After Connie and the doctor come out they open the two doors and stand in front of the doors. Towards the end of the scene as the doctor is about to leave them, they have all moved far a short distance from the left of the doors.

Arlen City Bomber - S9-E10

Continuity mistake: Connie was shown wearing blue/green sneakers when the kids entered the cave but when they wanted to leave she had her flip-flops on, and then the sneakers again for the rest of the show.

When Cotton Comes Marching Home - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: When Cotton is trying to use the circular saw on the car dealer, the extension plug it's connected to gets disconnected around half way onto the alley road.

Shins of the Father - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: Bobby takes a bite of his brownie and leaves most of it on his tray when he starts to get up and the teacher comes over to talk about his attitude. A few seconds later, when he and Joseph start slamming their trays on the table, the brownie is gone. (00:17:45)

Junkie Business - S2-E20

Continuity mistake: Before Hank fires Leon he is seen in the showroom foaming from the mouth and there is a door to his right. In the next shot when Hank is being talked to by Mr Strickland, there is now a bulletin board to Leon's right and the door has disappeared.

Lummie

Peggy's Turtle Song - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: When Peggy is leaving for her guitar recital, she is getting in the car and is wearing a pink sleeved shirt. Then there is a quick shot from behind the car, when Peggy is getting into her car, but her shirt is now a sleeveless green one.

Lummie

Next of Shin - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: Before Cotton puts down "8 the hard way" on the craps table, there is a beer on the table next to him. After he loses, he gets onto the table and you can see the beer has disappeared and he is not holding it. Even in the final shot through the security camera monitor, the beer is nowhere to be seen even on the floor. Also, Hank was holding a beer before Cotton leaped onto the table and in the security monitor footage he has not put it down on the table and is not holding it as he puts both hands on his head.

Lummie

Hank and the Great Glass Elevator - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: When Hank & the guys are talking about mooning from the glass elevator, Hank is positioned with his back next to the wall as he is sitting at the table. When Dale says his high school mooning was the best thing he ever did it. It then shows Hank and he says, "The vice principal gave you a week's detention" and is now sitting away from the wall with his back to a group of men in the opposite table.

Lummie

Hank's Choice - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: In the episode where porn videos are being sent to Hank, there is a close-up shot of a machine printing out address labels for Hank's house. These labels say 320 Rainey Street. However, in this episode, when Peggy is looking at the mail, all of their mail has 84 Rainey Street as their address. In several other episodes, the address is stated to be 123 Rainey Street.

Husky Bobby - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: Backstage at the fashion show, Andie uses his bag to knock Bobby's bag off of the makeup counter. When Andie sits down and tells Bobby to go get him a brownie, both bags have disappeared.

Be True to Your Fool - S7-E19

Deliberate mistake: Hank only discovers the tattoo on the back of his head after having his hair shaved off. There is no way, however, he wouldn't have noticed it before this. The tattoo artist had to shave hair off the back of his head before putting on the tattoo. While he might have not realised right away, the pain the following day and the fact that he would have noticed a large part of his hair missing would make it unavoidable.

Answer: If you are talking about the "Thou shalt not do this, thou shalt not do that" song, I'm not sure if a song like that actually exists. Green Day, the guest voices on the episode, might have just been improvising to keep their appearance from being too obvious.
