* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Although "Sound of the Underground" was rather refreshing in comparison to girl groups before them, early b-sides and demos such as "Stay Another Day", "Lights, Music, Camera, Action!" and their version of "Sacred Trust", made it clear that their record label wanted the group to be another moody girl group. It wasn't until they covered "Jump" that they realized they were better suited for a more energetic sound.

Added DiffLines:

** In their early days, Nadine was pushed as the Face of the Band; usually standing in the middle of all the promotional shots and taking on lead vocals for most of the songs. From "Jump" onward, Cheryl's popularity took off in the media and she became the face.


Added DiffLines:

* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: For the "Jump" video, Nadine and Cheryl's hair was lightened. This also coincided with the group's switch to a LighterAndSofter image.

** TheLancer: Nadine, while essentially the musical FaceOfTheBand as the main vocalist on most the group's songs, she generally tended to stay out of the media limelight.

* [[FiveManBand Five-Woman Band]]:
** TheLeader: Cheryl, the most vocal member and the center of much of the band's media attention, undeniably the group's overall [[BreakoutCharacter Breakout Star]].
** TheLancer: Nadine, while essentially the musical FaceOfTheBand as the main vocalist on most the group's songs, she generally tended to stay out of the media limelight.
** [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]]: Nicola, while often seemingly playing the role of the ShrinkingViolet through much of the band's run she later showed to have the most hidden talents of any member, especially as a [[TheFashionista fashionista]] and songwriter.
** TheBigGuy: Sarah, thanks to a bit of an edgier, TanktopTomboy reputation, though Cheryl could also double here.
** TheHeart: Kimberley, thanks to her TeamMom and OnlySaneWoman traits.

* DVDCommentary: The ''Style'' DVD has Sarah and Cheryl comment on the styling of their videos up to "Sexy! No No No.." along with other miscellaneous trivia, such as the strange frequency of shots that focus on Sarah's hands and feet.

* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: The entire band's fondness for clubs, alcohol, and parties have been well documented in the tabloids, but Sarah Harding is the stand out case. She not only has a home on the infamous party island of Ibiza, she was also engaged to a DJ. The band's lyrics also contain frequent references to drinking and partying the night away.
** Sarah's HardDrinkingPartyGirl ways have now caught up with her as she's entered rehab and her engagement was called off.
*** Their 2013 GreatestHits tour will be a "dry" tour in support of Sarah's new-found sobriety and "On The Metro" references drinking soda instead of alcohol.

** One particular segment on their behind-the-scenes television special was Cheryl being horribly hungover after she and Nadine had spent the night drinking from their hotel bar. Cheryl has said that Nadine has and will drink her under the table.

* WordSaladLyrics: Their entire catalog, with the most infamous examples being "Love Machine", "Biology", "Sexy! No No No...", and "Miss You Bow Wow". The reason for this is Xenomania's production method of making words up to sync with the melodies and shaping the lyrics from there.

Added DiffLines:

* AccentUponTheWrongSyllable: In "Biology", Nadine sings "controversy" as "conTROversy", which is the British pronunciation, rather than the conventional "[=CONtroversy=]", which confused some American listeners.


Added DiffLines:

** LyricalShoehorn: On occasion, Xenomania will deploy this to make the lyrics fit with the melodies. The consensus on some lyrics site is that the second line of "Something Kinda Ooooh" is "Doctor gotta heat it up", and not "Gotta gotta heat it up".

* RecordProducer: Xenomania is the George Martin type, consisting of producer Brian Higgins, lyricist Miranda Cooper, and their assistants. Aside for the ''Sound of the Underground'' album, "Beautiful 'Cause You Love Me", and the cover songs, Xenomania have written and produced every single song and album. The group fully credits Xenomania as the key to their success, even thanking them at the 2009 Brits when they won Best British Single for "The Promise".

** The TV show that set out to create Girls Aloud also featured a girl who claimed she was 16 to make it into the competition. She made it fairly far... And was then revealed to be 13.
