* CoolOldGuy: The guys were born in TheFifties, so they all really broke out as musicians over or nearing 40, and evolve more and more into this. ** CoolOldLady: Shirley, born in 1966, also fit once TheNewTens kicked it. Not [[OlderThanTheyLook that she looked]] [[http://paranoid13xforever.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/screen-shot-2012-01-29-at-18-39-08.png aged 45]] or [[http://thumbnails.cbc.ca/maven_legacy/thumbnails/619/35/Q_S15-16_02-06-2016_1280x720_2500kbps.jpg?crop=1.777xh:h;*,*&downsize=560px:* near 50]].



** They covered Music/TheRamones' "I Just Wanna Have Something To Do" for the WE'RE A HAPPY FAMILY tribute album.

%%* OlderThanTheyLook: This is what Shirley looks like at [[http://paranoid13xforever.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/screen-shot-2012-01-29-at-18-39-08.png age 45]].



* RoseHairedSweetie: With the given reservations, Shirley starting in 2015, when she dyed her hair to a pink similar to the one in the first album's cover.



** OohMeAccentsSlipping: Except in "Stupid Girl", where she pronounces the word "stupid" as "stju-pid" as opposed to the American pronunciation as "stoo-pid"; "Run Baby Run", where the TitleDrop sounds more like "rahn my baby rahn"; and "Not Your Kind of People", where she pronounces "cast" as "cahst" in line in British or Australian/New Zealand English.

* PunctuatedForEmphasis: A few {{Title Drop}}s ("This! Is! ''Not! My! Idea!'' of a good time..."; "Why! Don't! You! Come - oveeeer?!"; "Automatic - Systematic - Habit!").



** They used the beat from "Train in Vain" by Music/TheClash for "Stupid Girl". "Don't Worry Baby" was originally sampled for "Push It", but the sample is not present in the final version of the track (although present in recent performances); Shirley sings the lyrics herself.

Added DiffLines:

** "Sleep Together" ("If we sleep together, will you like me better?") has a clear homage to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4x0fPZrPV3M Romeo Void's "Never Say Never"]] ("I might like you better if we slept together!").

For their follow-up, ''Version 2.0'', Garbage continued with the same electro-rock sound but added a denser production, more techno and trip-hop influences and more EarWorm melodies. ''2.0'' became another well-received success and gave them a few more hit singles as well, such as the technoey "Push It", the super-heavy EpicRiff-driven "I Think I'm Paranoid", and the [[SurprisinglyGentleSong ballad]] "You Look So Fine". Around this time, they were recruited to perform the theme to ''Film/TheWorldIsNotEnough'', on which they worked alongside composer DavidArnold.

* InDaClub: "Run Baby Run" plays this straight, but "The Chemicals" plays with the trope - the patron are young and quite attractive, but they are drunk/on drugs and a few of them are quite aggressive (it is a rave bar afterwards)



* TitleOnlyChorus: "Why Don't You Come Over" and "I Hate Love".
