Each member of the band is noted for a particular trait: Banks for his nasal baritone, Kessler for his guitar flourishes and inability to remain still while playing, Dengler for his fashion choices and habit of wearing his bass guitar very low, and Fogarino for his energetic drumming style. Early on, their sound was frequently likened to Music/JoyDivision, a comparison the band is less than enthusiastic about. Nowadays they're better described as a {{goth}}ic Music/{{REM}}.

* WordSaladLyrics - The band own this trope. [[http://www.sing365.com/music/lyric.nsf/Obstacle-1-lyrics-Interpol/37D5F3C49082A5E648256CBC0012033C "Obstacle 1" is probably the best example]].

The band was named not after the international police, but after Paul Banks' nickname when he went to school in Spain. His friends would refer to him as "Pol, Pol, Interpol" (Pol being Spanish for Paul). Of course, while "Interpol" does seem like a decent band name, it didn't make searching for them online very easy during their early years.

Each member of the band is noted for a particular trait: Banks for his nasal baritone, Kessler for his guitar flourishes and inability to remain still while playing, Dengler for his fashion choices and habit of wearing his bass guitar very low, and Fogarino for his energetic drumming style. Early on, their sound was frequently likened to [[JoyDivision Joy Division]], a comparison the band is less than enthusiastic about. Nowadays they're better described as a gothic REM.

* ArtistDisillusionment - Cited as one of the reasons for Carlos' departure. He even said in a 2007 interview that he changed his style so drastically in order to avoid being recongised in public so much.



* ColbertBump - Came to the attention of a wider audience when songs such as "Evil" were used in [[GreysAnatomy Grey's Anatomy]].

* MinimalisticCoverArt - The band are quite fond of this. [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/5/59/Interpol-Antics.jpg/200px-Interpol-Antics.jpg ''Antics'' probably takes the cake]].

Added DiffLines:

** The rapper is actually Daniel Kessler, as proven by live performances of the song.

Added DiffLines:

* AWildRapperAppears - The original demo of "Song Seven" features a rap verse preformed by an unknown rapper. The voice definitely does not belong to Paul Banks, and the final recording from the bonus track version of ''Antics'' removes the verse completely, so who the performer is remains a mystery as of yet.

* EpicRocking - "Galivan", a bonus track from their self-titled effort, is their longest ever studio recording at six minutes and forty-nine seconds. Other songs that exceed six minutes include "Stella Was a Diver & She Was Always Down", "The New" and "Specialist". To a lesser extent, there's "Precipitate", "Not Even Jail", "Pioneer to the Falls", "The Lighthouse" and "Lights".



** An unusual variant in ''Our Love to Admire.'' "The Heinrich Maneuver" makes use of StopAndGo, so when it abruptly ends and "Mammoth" begins at the same tempo, it's not immediately obvious that the former song has ended.
