Please don't confuse them with Music/MyChemicalRomance; [[Webcomic/PennyArcade it's been a problem]]. Oh, and don't confuse them with [[Film/MyBloodyValentine the movie]], from which they took their name (or maybe didn't; different sources have specified differently), which doesn't have nearly as many instances of people staring at their shoes. Nor should you confuse them for Music/BulletForMyValentine, which is a [[{{Metalcore}} completely different]] band entirely. Last but not least, they shouldn't be confused with Music/MyVitriol, which probably happens more often than the other three, as MV are the band that started the Second Wave of Shoegazing.

** "Nothing Much to Lose" has a riff in 5/4.

to:

** The opening riff of "Nothing Much to Lose" has a riff Lose", reprised at several other points in 5/4.the song, is in 5/4. Oddly, it's changed to 6/4 in some live performances. (It's also performed in a jerky, disorienting fashion - these time signatures are arguably only approximations of its rhythm.)

** Less extreme examples are "Soon" (8:47) and the extended version of "Glider" (10:16).

to:

** Less Their studio discography has a few less extreme examples are examples, namely "Soon" (8:47) and (7:01), the extended version of "Glider" (10:16).(10:16), "Only Tomorrow" (6:21), and "Who Sees You" (6:11). The EP version of "To Here Knows When" just barely misses qualifying at 5:49, though Kevin Shields considers the instrumental interlude at the end of the track to be a separate song. Then again, due to the extensive use of FadingIntoTheNextSong on ''Loveless'' and ''Tremolo'', song divisions during that era almost feel like afterthoughts; both releases could be thought of as long compositions that were divided into tracks mostly just to make CD navigation easier.
** "You Made Me Realise" isn't the only song prone to expansion live; a [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes commonly bootlegged]] 1992 performance in Vancouver, British Columbia, has a version of "Soon" that goes on for almost nine minutes and a version of "To Here Knows When" that goes on for more than seven, and that's not all.

Added DiffLines:

* NoTitle: [[WordOfGod Kevin Shields]] considers the instrumental interludes on ''Tremolo'' to be separate songs (meaning that he considers the EP to have seven songs rather than four), but they've never been given official titles. There are also a few brief instrumental interludes on ''Loveless'' that could arguably be considered separate songs (specifically, after "Only Shallow", "To Here Knows When", and "What You Want"), though they're slightly shorter than the ''Tremolo'' examples.

* IAmTheBand: Happened on ''Loveless''; Kevin admitted "I'm actually the only musician on the record except for the Colm song"[[note]]"Touched[[/note]] in Mike [=McGonigal=]'s book about its recording. He took over Bilinda's guitar duties (which she didn't mind since she didn't have a high opinion of her guitar skills) and played bass in Debbie's place (due to it being quicker than him trying to explain his vision to her). Colm suffered from physical and personal problems during the recording, having become homeless at one point, so for most of the album the drums are actually looped samples of whatever Colm was able to perform; he only played live on the opener "Only Shallow" and his contribution "Touched".

* UncommonTime: The main riff of "Feed Me with Your Kiss" constantly changes time signature. The general pattern is a bar of 5/4, followed by a bar of 3/4, followed by a measure of length that varies (the usual pattern is 4/4, then 5/4, then 6/4, then 8/4, but other patterns are used, such as 4/4 then 8/4, or, at the end of the song, one each of each meter signature from 4/4 up to 10/4).

* UncommonTime: Frequently. A few examples:
**
The main riff of most conspicuous example is "Feed Me with Your Kiss" Kiss", whose main riff constantly changes time signature. The general pattern is a bar of 5/4, followed by a bar of 3/4, followed by a measure of length that varies (the usual pattern is 4/4, then 5/4, then 6/4, then 8/4, but other patterns are used, such as 4/4 then 8/4, or, at the end of the song, one each of each meter signature from 4/4 up to 10/4).10/4).
** "Nothing Much to Lose" has a riff in 5/4.
** "Drive It All over Me" throws an extra beat (or, depending upon how one counts it, half-beat) into the last measure of each chorus, which creates a rather jolting effect.
** "You Made Me Realise" is a DoubleSubversion. The main riff might sound like it's in 7/4 at first, but it's actually just really syncopated 4/4. However, the chorus ends up being an example, as it has three bars of 4/4 and one of 6/4. (The verses are 6/4 all the way through.)
