* ChristmasSpecial: ''Christmas On Mars'', Sort of.



** Followed up by ''With A Little Help From My Fwends'' a cover album of ''Music/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand''.



* [[LesserStar Garfunkel]] / NobodyLovesTheBassist: despite being [[TheQuietOne the least visible member of the band]], and [[DreadfulMusician not being able to play during the band's inception]], Michael Ivins manages to somewhat avert this. He's since evolved in a competent instrumentist admired for his cool bass tones, mostly achieved through a vast array of pedals, and has a career as a sound engineer, both with the Lips and other bands.

Amongst their most acclaimed work - both critically and commercially - is 1999's ''[[Music/TheSoftBulletin The Soft Bulletin]]'', which critics compared to ''[[Music/PetSounds Pet Sounds]]'' for its multi-layered, 'Wall of Sound' style production and poignant subject matter, as well as its' 2002 follow-up ''Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots'', which includes "Do You Realize??", the official State Rock Song of their home state of Oklahoma.

* LoudnessWar: Nearly everything from ''Zaireeka'' onwards is [[http://dr.loudness-war.info/album/list/year?artist=flaming+lips badly brickwalled]], though ''At War with the Mystics'', ''The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends'', and their cover of ''Dark Side of the Moon'' stand out as the worst full-length releases at [=DR4=]. The ''Peace Sword'' EP, at [=DR3=], is even worse. Even the "demastered" version of ''The Soft Bulletin'', which you might expect to be an aversion of this trope, is still affected ([=DR6=], and still badly clipped). Many of the vinyl editions also have clipped masters. On the plus side, the [=HDTracks=] version of ''Yoshimi'' is mostly unaffected at [=DR11=].

* CreatorBreakdown: "Try to Explain" was written in response to Wayne Coyne separating with his partner of 25 years.
** ''The Terror'' as a whole was the result of this, further complicated by Steven Drozd's lifelong battle with substance abuse.



* OneHitWonder: Before "Do You Realize??" they were tagged as one of these for their goofy novelty single, "She Don't Use Jelly".



* ThePeteBest: There have been a few that would fit this bill, such as original vocalist Mark Coyne (who only appears on the band's debut EP), and the drummers the band went through prior to their first permanent drummer Richard English.



* ReclusiveArtist: Ronald Jones, who has since refused to say anything about his involvement with his former bandmates.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: It's been noted by the band and other sources that ''Zaireeka'' was originally intended to be a ''10 CD box set'' as opposed to the four that they eventually ended up releasing.
** Some of the mystery of how the 10 CD version would have sounded has been answered, however, due to the band passing out special [=CDs=] containing a mixdown of what discs 5-10 would have included during special listening parties to commemorate ''Zaireeka's'' 10th anniversary.
