* BrainlessBeauty: The only reason Rob and Fab didn't just quit when they were told they'd be miming already recorded songs, was because they'd already spent most of their several thousand dollar advances on hair products.



* OurNormalIsYourTaboo: An oft-forgotten part of this whole mess was that having frontmen who simply acted as the FaceOfTheBand but contributed nothing more than their looks was quite common in Europe. Not crediting the ''actual band'', however, was quite something else.

Namely, it wasn't an issue until the American repackaging of their first album outright lied and named Rob and Fab as the only 2 singers.

The debut, ''All Or Nothing'' (1988) set the tone for their output, with {{Europop}} music informed by {{Hip Hop}} and {{Funk}}. Arista Records, liking what they heard, snapped them up for a North American release. Leaving some songs behind, some new songs were added and the track list was shuffled into a new album, titled ''[[UpdatedRerelease Girl You Know It's True.]]'' This album went six times platinum, and the title track became their SignatureSong.

* Music/NewJackSwing: One of the genere's defining artists in the late 80s, before the scandal broke. Fun fact: ''Girl You Know It's True'' was on course for beating Bobby Brown's record for best-selling new jack swing album before everything imploded.

* FaceHeelTurn: A real life example. When the group's manager revealed that the allegations of lip syncing were true, Milli Vanilli went from one of the most popular music acts on the planet to the most reviled *literally* overnight.
