* ColorCodedForYourConvenience - Grey. Many records of his feature black and white photos of him on the cover. His album You Want It You Got It features a painted in grey background. This color scheme was probably done to distinguish him from the brightly colored album covers of TheEighties and became a standard for him.

* BrokenBase: A lot of his older fans really hate the way Adams' public reputation went from hip pop-rocker to uncool adult contemporary balladeer with "Everything I Do (I Do It For You)", from which it still hasn't really recovered, even when he's made plenty of rock records since.
** Mutt Lange's production on "Waking Up The Neighbours", which makes Adams sound like Def Leppard, is a big BaseBreaker. The lack of Jim Vallance co-writes on the album doesn't help.
** There seems to be a portion of the fanbase who thinks 18 Til I Die is one of his best and On A Day Like Today sucks, and another portion who thinks On A Day Like Today is best and 18 Til I Die sucks. You won't find many who like both equally.

* NoExportForYou: "Io Vivo In Te", (the unplugged version of I'm Ready dubbed into Italian), was only released as a single in Italy and wasn't available elsewhere, though its success means it is not hard to find from Italian sellers on eBay. Similarly, the Spanish version of "Everything I Do" titled "(Todo Que Lo Hago) Lo Hago Por Ti", was only released in Mexico and Colombia as a promo single, and a bonus track to some copies of the album.
