** As for the original releases of their albums, many were released before the time this trope really started to get bad. By the time of ''Brighten the Corners'' and ''Terror Twilight'', it had started to become a widespread problem, but while ''Terror Twilight'' is slightly clipped, it still comes out to [=DR9=] overall, which was quiet and dynamic by 1999 standards, let alone today's.

* StepUpToTheMicrophone[=/=]VocalTagTeam: Scott Kannberg's turns at lead vocals fall somewhere between the two: He has the sole lead vocals on one or two songs on every full-length album except for ''Terror Twilight'', but Stephen Malkmus still definitely has the majority of vocals. In addition, "Painted Soldiers" is the only Kannberg-sung track to have a music video, and even then it wasn't officially a single. Meanwhile, "Carrot Rope", the final song on ''Terror Twilight'' is partly sung by Stephen, partly by Scott, and partly by bassist Mark Ibold, which is his only lead vocal on a Pavement album.

* LongSongShortScene: "Nothing Ever Happens" was left off ''Slanted and Enchanted'', but the song's riff became a 30 second instrumental postscript to "Trigger Cut / Wounded-Kite at :17". The full two and a half minute song, with vocals by Spiral Stairs, finally saw release on ''Slanted & Enchanted: Luxe And Reduxe'', ten years after the release of the original album.
** Similarly, "Dark Ages" was left off of ''Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain'', but the final minute of the song was turned into an introduction to "Filmore Jive". All 2:40 of "Dark Ages" appeared on ''Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain: L.A.'s Desert Origins''.

* MoodWhiplash: They employ this often, particularly on ''Wowee Zowee'', and sometimes within the same song. One of the best examples is how the frantic "Flux = Rad" fades into the eerie "Fight This Generation", which then has an almost paranoid-sounding second half.



* SongStyleShift: They employ this frequently, especially in their longer songs. Particularly notable examples include "Fight This Generation", "Canyon Rope", "You Are a Light", and "Speak, See, Remember".



** "Speak, See, Remember" frequently jumps around between 4/4 and 6/4 in a highly disorienting manner. Its verses have patterns of 4+6+4+4/4 (18/4) at times.

* PunBasedTitle: They have a few. "5-4=Unity" refers to the song's 5/4 meter signature, plus the fact that subtracting four from five gives you one (i.e., unity). ''Nicene Creedence Edition'' is explained below under ShoutOut. Sometimes they construct entire songs around puns, such as "Candylad" (a pun on the board game TabletopGame/CandyLand) and "Gangsters & Pranksters".

Pavement broke up in 1999 due to intra-band conflict (especially between the others and Malkmus), and reunited pretty epically in 2010. However, Malkmus has said that no further tours are planned, and Nastanovich ruled out the possibility of new material. They haven't ruled out the possibility of more performances at some point in the future, but said it wouldn't be anytime soon because they didn't want people who saw them in 2010 to feel ripped off that they had another reunion that quickly. Some of the other members (Kannberg and Young, specifically) have joined Malkmus onstage at various solo shows, but there hasn't been a full reunion.
