* AntiLoveSong: "I Hate Love" surprisingly enough.

to:

* AnachronismStew: The music video for "The World Is Not Enough", the theme for the [[JamesBond/TheWorldIsNotEnough Bond movie of the same name]], is a sort of mini spy-fi movie, apparently set in Chicago 1964, except for the fact the cars look ''pretty obviously'' contemporary to the 1990s. [[spoiler:Oh, and also Shirley Manson is an apparently sentient, sexy, bisexual robot. With a bomb inside her!]]
* AntiLoveSong: "I Hate Love" [[SarcasmMode surprisingly enough.enough]].

** OohMeAccentsSlipping: Except in "Stupid Girl", where she pronounces the word "stupid" as "stju-pid" as opposed to the American pronunciation as "stoo-pid", and adds some TrrrillingRrrs to "girl"" ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJD21xh9Bto&t=89s something that confused the rest of the band]]). She laters repeats this for both words in "Boys Wanna Fight".

* GenreBlindness: "The World Is Not Enough" features the line, "No one ever died from wanting too much." No one apart from every ''Film/JamesBond'' villain ever!

It's subverted though when you watch ''Film/TheWorldIsNotEnough'' and realize that it's from the point of view of [[spoiler:[[VillainSong Elektra King]].]]

The band's gravy train slowed down somewhat after TheNineties ended, thanks to record label problems and a mixed reception towards ''beautifulgarbage'' that frequently included charges of both TheyChangedItNowItSucks and ItsTheSameNowItSucks, reception that translated into poor sales. During the TroubledProduction of their next album, they nearly broke up due to intra-band tensions in 2003, but managed to regroup and finish ''Bleed Like Me'' in 2005, which once again suffered a mixed reception but did slightly better on the charts. They went on a hiatus for five years afterwards, during which Manson played the liquid metal Terminator known as Weaver in ''Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles''. Despite generally positive reaction, she didn't continue with acting. Manson announced in October of 2010 that the group had reformed and was working on a fifth album, which was released in 2012 as ''Not Your Kind of People''. The title track was used in the trailer for ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain Metal Gear Solid V]]'', so the group has at least [[Creator/HideoKojima one Japanese fan]].
