* NonIndicativeName: "Viðrar vel til loftárása" is Icelandic for "Good weather for an airstrike", which title-wise is in a completely different universe from the [[{{Gayngst}} song]] [[TearJerker it]][[CrowningMomentofHeartwarming self]]. The band got the title from a weatherman sarcastically reporting "Today: good weather for an airstrike" while NATO was bombing Serbia during [[UsefulNotes/TheYugoslavWars the Kosovo War]]. (In a freaky coincidence, ''Ágætis byrjun'' was actually released on 12 June 1999, the day Slobodan Milošević agreed to withdraw the Serbian forces and UN peacekeepers began being deployed in Kosovo.)

* BookEnds: ''( )'' begins and ends with a click of distortion.



* SingingSimlish: Vonlenska.
** [[LuckyCharmsTitle ( ) ]] is completely made up of Vonlenska; the lyrics are made up of the following phrase, and various permutations of it: You xylo. You xylo no fi lo. You So. For an hour, twelve minutes and 5 seconds.

* SingingSimlish: Vonlenska.
The band sometimes uses a made-up language called Vonlenska/Hopelandic in their songs, although they also use Icelandic, and it speaks volumes about their talents considering that the language [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic does absolutely nothing to undermine the music's quality]].

Hallmarks of the band's sound include: a wall of guitars, keyboards and violins, Jónsi's high-pitched, [[CocteauTwins Liz Fraser]]-sounding falsetto voice, use of bowed guitar, frequent use of a [[SingingSimlish made-up nonsense language]] named "Vonlenska" ("hopelandic"), dramatic crescendos and dynamics, and success despite the fact that most of their audience most likely doesn't understand a lick of their lyrics. Yes, they're ''[[CrowningMusicOfAwesome that good]]''.
