* CreatorBreakdown: Back in 1994, Jenny and the mother of the [[BandOfRelatives Berggren family]] were attacked by a knife-wielding [[StalkerWithACrush lunatic fan girl from Germany]] who actually targeted Malin. Fans suspect that this were the reason why Malin became [[DemotedToExtra less and less involved with the band]]. The incident also fueled the song "Ravine", written and sung by Jenny.

Their subsequent albums ''The Bridge'' and ''Flowers'' failed to repeat the success of ''Happy Nation'', but were still a commercial success with 7 and 2 million sales respectively. ''Da Capo'' was the last album of the traditional line up and only sold about 500,000 copies. The wane of success coincided with the [[DemotedToExtra gradual self-disengagement]] of the perceived face of the band, Malin, leading to her eventual exit in 2007 and the subsequent exit of Jenny in 2009. With only Jonas and Ulf left, they watched for two new female vocalists and eventually found them in Clara Hagman and Julia Williamson who were lost in the meantime after one album (''Golden Ratio'') and made the band a lone pack of two wolfs once again. Ever since, Ace Of Base released a compilation album fittingly called ''Hidden Gems'' containing previously unreleased material from every era of the original line-up.

* StoryArc: In the track commentaries of ''Hidden Gems'', WordOfGod says that the four songs of "Happy Nation", "Perfect World", "Mercy, Mercy" and "Look Around Me" are tied together as a ComingOfAgeStory wherein a SoapBoxSadie eventually finds her meaning of life in hope and love at the very end.

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Many listeners of "All That She Wants" thought that the song was about a woman wanting a child, due to the song's famous 'All that she wants is another baby' line, not realizing that the 'baby' here is used as a synonym for 'boyfriend' or 'lover'.
