* LargeHam: Why, Marco of course. By default, any time he has a part in a song, whatever subtlety had been built up until that point is thoroughly smashed, due to his tendency to -- in the mold of [[Music/BlindGuardian Hansi Kürsch]] before him -- sing completely in all caps.

* OutOfGenreExperience: After two songs of trademark power metal, ''Imaginaerum'' throws in the lounge club-inspired track "Slow, Love, Slow." Yes, that's right, a ''lounge'' track on a Nightwish album. The album abruptly returns to power metal afterwards.

While initially disappointed, they soon became noticed with their song ''Sacrament of Wilderness'' and achieved worldwide fame with their next two albums, ''Oceanborn'' and ''Wishmaster''. After the success, they released the [[DarkerAndEdgier darker]] ''Century Child''. After their fifth (and breakthrough) album ''Once'', they held a live show called ''End of an Era''. Shortly after the performance, vocalist Tarja Turunen was fired for viewing the band as a way to gain publicity and make money. They even expressed this in an open letter on their web site, though this is only one side of the coin. They later hired vocalist Anette Olzon, which has caused a [[BrokenBase division in the fanbase]]. Their first album with Anette as the main vocalist, ''Dark Passion Play'', was released in 2007.

* When it means to ignore something, igNORance is how it is pronounced, so it really depends on context.
