* BlackSheepHit: "Kayleigh", to the point of OneHitWonder-syndrome.

* CreatorBacklash: The band in its current line-up has stepped away from some (though by no means all) of the very early stuff. "Grendel" gets the worst of it, even from Fish. Of course, this doesn't stop some fans from [[IconicSongRequest gleefully shouting for it]]... * CreatorBreakdown: Hogarth seems to suffer these on a regular basis, but the divorce that inspired half the songs on ''Somewhere Else'' stands out. A bit of a subversion as the album got a [[SoOkayItsAverage lackluster response]]. Fish had his share of these as well; for example, ''Misplaced Childhood'' grew out of a difficult breakup he went through, while a number of the songs on ''Clutching at Straws'' were directly inspired by his alcoholism.

* ThePeteBest: Mick Pointer, who was the drummer on the first album and went on to found another ProgressiveRock group: Arena.

* TheRedStapler: The name "Kayleigh" more or less did not exist until the song was released, but has become a popular girl's name in the years since the song was released.

* BlessedWithSuck: Thanks to "Kayleigh", no matter how hard they try to reinvent themselves, the MainstreamMedia will always view them as a OneHitWonder from TheEighties.
