* ArchivePanic: To say they have a '''LARGE''' discography is quite the understatement.
** This isn't even taking the numerous side projects into account.
* AttentionDeficitCreatorDisorder: Pollard is not only in GBV and has a solo career, but is in several other side projects like Boston Spaceships and Circus Devils. And that's not getting into Sprout's solo career.

** The beat in "My Valuable Hunting Knife" is Bob banging a metal trash can lid.
** The flute sound in "Goldheart Mountaintop Queen Directory" is Jimmy blowing into a mic stand.


Added DiffLines:

** On the reunion albums, most of Toby's tracks take this trope literally.


Added DiffLines:

** Bob's songs on the last two albums aren't that straightforward, attributing to a new songwriting style.


Added DiffLines:

** Not quite. Kevin had used Guided By Voices as a selling point for his kit. Bob wasn't too pleased with that.
