They are well-known for their heavily distinctive style, caused primarily by [=John McCrea=]'s amazing vocal style and their use of brass. Also, their every single song is about 1) a Girl, 2) a Car, 3) the Devil, or more likely 4) two or more of those subjects at the same time (e.g. "Satan is My Motor" which is about all three).

* RealSongThemeTune: As mentioned above, "Short Skirt/Long Jacket" was the theme song to ''{{Series/Chuck}}''. An sped-up instrumental version of "Italian Leather Sofa" was also used as the theme to ''WesternAnimation/MissionHill'', and is one of the few pieces of licensed music left in tact for the DVD.

They have a famously large geekdom fanbase, and their hit "Short Skirt/Long Jacket" was the appropriately chosen theme song to cult TV show ''{{Chuck}}'', which is where a lot of their more recent fans will have become familiar with them. Their other first hit, "The Distance", boosted the sales for their album ''Fashion Nugget''.
