* TakeThatCritics: "I Die, You Die" off of ''Telekon''. The lyrics were aimed at what Numan saw as an increasingly vitriolic music press.

-->They crawl out\\
Of their holes for me\\
And I die, you die\\
Hear them laugh\\
Watch them turn on me\\
And I die, you die\\
See my scars\\
They call me such things\\
Tear me, tear me ,tear me

He began his career under the band moniker Tubeway Army, their early PunkRock singles recorded with the sole intent of becoming famous. He discovered a Moog synthesizer in the studio, and he was so impressed by the sound that he incorporated synths into his music with their first SelfTitledAlbum, slowly transitioning his style to that with which he ''did'' become famous. Their second album, ''Replicas'', broke them into the mainstream in the U.K., aided by Gary's striking RobotOrSpacemanAlterEgo; "Are Friends Electric" was one of the first SynthPop singles on ''Series/TopOfThePops'', pissing off some other synth-based bands that were well established before him. He dropped the Tubeway Army for his third album, ''The Pleasure Principle'', which gave his sole U.S. hit "Cars".

* DarkerAndEdgier: His robotic SynthPop, while already thematically dark, evolved into Music/NineInchNails-inspired {{Industrial}} in the 90s.
** His career went through peaks and valleys of darkness. His original albums (especially ''Replicas'') were really dark before he went for much LighterAndSofter pop to try and court the market. After that resulted in a DorkAge he went darker again in the 90's and has been that way ever since.
