* 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.

One of UsefulNotes/{{Canada}}'s most successful musicians, Bryan Adams entered the music industry as a songwriter in the late 1970s before achieving solo fame in TheEighties. Initially marketed as a "Canadian [[Music/BruceSpringsteen Springsteen]]", Adams developed his own distinctive [[ArenaRock melodic rock]] beginning with his second album, "You Want It, You Got It".

* 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.

** He also calls french fries 'chips' in an interview from 1985, although he might be humoring the Scottish interviewer.

* 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.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: He confirmed in an interview that, yes, "Summer of 69" actually ''is'' [[FreudWasRight named in reference to the sex act]] and that anyone who thinks otherwise is kidding themselves. His co-writer, Jim Vallance, however claims otherwise. (It's possible that Vallance was thinking of the year and Adams wasn't, considering that Vallance was 17 at the summer of 1969, but Adams was only 9.)
