** Also, Yoshiki referred to his same certain bodily appendage as a 'rocket' in a couple of songs, and it got picked up by fans. ItGetsBetter for those into HoYay (or the occasional cheap laugh). hide, the late guitarist, wrote and performed a song called "Rocket Dive" and once drunkenly yelled in an interview "Rocket dive to my spread beaver!" He was talking about his song and his solo band....

** "Flansy" even comes up in one of their songs, albeit one co-written and sung by a guest vocalist: The [[SoulCoughing Mike Doughty]] collaboration "Mr. Xcitement" includes the line [[WordSaladLyrics "Like Flansy in a soda can, it's trooky-trooky-trooky"]].
* {{Gackt}}'s fans and staff sometimes refer to him as Mau-sama. Which is Japanese for Devil King.

The German fan in the concert, known only by his Website/{{Youtube}} name [=ShootUpTheStation=] is SUTS for short.
