** ''Videogame/MaxPayne2'''s ending theme, "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzsiE44Lz_w Late Goodbye]]" was their first release, which suddenly became the BreakawayPopHit that properly launched their careers as perennial chart-toppers, and eclipsed the game itself.
** In the ''VideoGame/AlanWake'' games, they're the real talent behind the HeavyMithril FakeBand known as Old Gods of Asgard, and play all of the original songs that the band play in-game.

* Anne Dudley, composer of the scores for (among many others) ''Film/AmericanHistoryX, Film/TheFullMonty'' and ''Film/TheCryingGame'' (as well as the TV series ''TheTenthKingdom'') first became famous as a member of experimental electronica group Music/ArtOfNoise, as well as a prolific string arranger for many, many songs. She more or less moved into this full time - what she's done since leaving the band couldn't rationally be described as "pop".
