* HeyItsThatVoice: The spoken word monologue in the beginning of "Have You Passed Through This Night?" is delivered by Pvt. Train in TheThinRedLine.



* NoHitWonder: Their albums have done relatively well, but no individual song of theirs has ever charted.



* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: They still get emails asking for the song used as the theme to FridayNightLights. That particular piece is not their work; it was composed by veteran TV writer W.G. Snuffy Walden and deliberately mimicked their style.
