* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: ''Scenes One Through Thirteen'' is a compilation of early singles - At the time they didn't have a guitarist, Steve Bay was only playing keyboards (the original vocalist was Matthew Marnik), and they had a noisier, more aggressive PostHardcore / PostPunk sound.

* EarWorm: Too many songs to list.
* EpicRiff: A few times, notably "Middle of Nowhere" and "Bandages".
* FaceOfTheBand: The band has gone through a lot of line-up changes, but fans seem to always remember Steve Bays. Although there [[WildHair may be a]] [[MrFanservice reason for this]].
* MemeticMutation[=/=]RunningGag: Nobody can understand the lyrics to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3N9iSBanTs "Bandages"]]. Maybe they are ''"[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ykTspigQ4gg sandwiches, sandwiches, sandwiches]]"''? To quote a band member, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ykTspigQ4gg "That's what you're saying? I always wondered what the lyrics were to this song..."]]

* BlackSheepHit: Previously, fans had loved HotHotHeat for their harder, dance-punk songs. Their largest hit, "Middle of Nowhere" was rather pop.



* CreatorBacklash: Former member, Dustin Hawthorne once said of the band's biggest hit, "Middle of Nowhere", "I hate ('Middle of Nowhere') and I wish it was never written. I can't deny that it definitely did something good for our career, for sure. But, to me, it's adult contemporary. And it's kind of funny to me, because I grew up playing punk and here I am playing this jackass-sounding song."
