The group were generally considered part of the New Romantic scene, with other style-and-dance bands such as SpandauBallet, Japan and Music/{{ABC}}. In 1980, they recorded two demo tapes and performed in clubs around Birmingham and London. In late 1980, when touring as an opening act for Hazel O'Connor, the band attracted critical attention, resulting in a bidding war between the record companies EMI and Phonogram Records. "A certain patriotism" toward the label of Music/TheBeatles led them to sign with EMI in December. However, Nick Rhodes said in a 1998 interview with Deluxe magazine, that the band felt they were "appallingly ripped off" by the EMI contract.

* TheRival: The music press developed a sort of friendly rivalry between Duran Duran and SpandauBallet, although members of both groups have said that they enjoyed listening to each others' records.

Not to be confused with the creature named "Duran" in Anime/{{Mai-HiME}} (who was named after a dog who was named after the band). Southeast Asian tropers, they are not ''Film/DurianDurian'', either.

* FanNickname: The Fab Five.



* NamesTheSame: The groups first drummer was called [[{{Queen}} Roger Taylor]]. There was also a guitarist named [[TheAndyGriffithShow Andy Taylor]].



* ThePeteBest: Andy Wickett, one of the lead singers they had before Simon Le Bon. Another of the early vocalists, Stephen Duffy, might also qualify, but he had success as a songwriter and producer in partnership with Robbie Williams later on and also released some albums of his own.



* ViralMarketing: They seem to be trying for this with the music video for ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zgNZEP3Rbo Girl]]'' ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJbsTOzIA3k Panic!]]'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gw3fqlff5KA having]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ATdtu434_ws released]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QEJakdSVIEE a]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPOg4imnVxo grand]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyufQhulA94 total]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DANT7U-GXVw of]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tiaJ8AQ4yBI eleven]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xCOfhfSZeEw teaser]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Va-PZEusfgI trailers]] onto Youtube, as well as encouraging people to spread the word on twitter with the hashtag #girlpanic. Seems to have worked.
