* CreepyJazzMusic: Part of their GenreBusting reputation came from Jaki Liebezeit, who prior to Can, used to play in a forerunning European free jazz band. He brought his influence to the band, and provided a frenetic, primal sound for the rest of the band to improvise (and, by extension, [[NightmareFuel/{{Can}} create nightmares]]) on top of.

* StepUpToTheMicrophone[=/=]{{Foreshadowing}}: "Aumgn" makes use of Schmit chanting to provide the vocal track. Later, when Suzuki left the band, he and Karoli would both take over vocal duties.

* Malcom Mooney - vocals (1968-1970, 1986, 1991)

* Malcom Malcolm Mooney - vocals (1968-1970, 1986, 1991)



* BookEnds: ''Monster Movie'' and ''Rite Time,'' the first and last official records by the band, were the only ones which Malcolm Mooney sang on every vocal track.
* CarefulWithThatAxe: Suzuki slipped into this territory sometimes, particularly on "Peking O."



** When interviewed on the release of the 2012 compilation ''The Lost Tapes'', Holger Czukay made the distinction that Can's jamming wasn't the usual method of having them dick around on their instruments until they landed on an idea, but starting with a specific idea in mind and focusing on isolating its key elements and seeing where it could be taken.

This resulted in the songs working both in ''and'' out of the scene's context.

Mooney quit Can soon after ''Movie'', suffering from mental health problems. He was replaced by Damo Suzuki, a Japanese singer the band found busking in Munich. His wildly varied vocal style (easily switching between cryptic mumbling and outright screaming) and WordSaladLyrics sung in a variety of languages meshed well with the band's already existent sound. The resulting string of critically acclaimed albums, ''Tago Mago'', ''Ege Bamyasi'' and ''Future Days'' saw the band abandon any semblance of traditional song structures in favour of free improvisation, embracing constructing songs from tape editing, electronics and worldbeat influences even further. ''Days'' is even regarded as an early example of ambient music.
