* ''End'' (2017) - A single from the ''Series/BlackMirror'' episode ''Recap/BlackMirrorHangTheDJ'', somehow dreamlike and calming at the same time.

* IThoughtThatWas: If you see that one of their songs is titled "Heysátan", that's Icelandic for "haystack". Nothing to do with [[RockMeAsmodeus the other guy]].

** ''Takk...'' and ''Með suð'' were the first albums to include more songs in the 3-5 minute length range.
** "Untitled #8 (Popplagið)" deserves special mention though: the entire 12-minute song is basically one big crescendo. It often gets even longer when performed live.
** Also from ''( )'', "Untitled #7 (Dauðalagið)" is even longer, clocking in at thirteen minutes.

* IncrediblyLongNote: Jónsi holds considerably long falsetto notes in "Festival", and during live performances he holds them for ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-xBWxWmHZM even longer]]''.

* EpicInstrumentalOpener: ''Takk...'' opens with a TitleTrack that consists of a brief yet lush and stripped-down instrumental reprise of "Glósóli".

* FadingIntoTheNextSong: The intro of ''Ágætis byrjun'' ends with the same rumble and submarine-esque beep heard in the next song, "Svefn-g-englar".

** The first two tracks of ''Takk...'', the TitleTrack and "Glósóli", flow into each other quite well since the former is a reprise of the latter.

** ''Avalon''. After you've finally adjusted to the slow and haunting tempo, weird clanking noises come in.

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: The band generally stays extremely low, in the 1-to-5 range, but "Brennestein" is roughly an 8, and if it weren't for the vocals could even be a 9. "Kveikur" as well would be a 9 (with moments of 10, especially [[LastNoteNightmare the ending]]) if it weren't for the EarWorm chorus keeping it teetering between 8 and 9.

Added DiffLines:

** "Njósnavélin" actually translates as "The Spy Machine", but "The Nothing Song" is a commonly used alternate title. "The Nothing Song" in Icelandic would be something more along the lines of "Ekkertalagið" (a native speaker may wish to revise this if needed).

Added DiffLines:

** There are also thirty-six seconds of silence separating the first four songs on ''( )'' from the last four. The gap separates the sunnier, more cheerful first half from the distinctly more downbeat second half (which also consists of substantially longer songs).

** Additionally, the working titles for "Hljómalind" and "Hoppípolla" were "Rokklagið" (The Rock Song) and "The Money Song," respectively, "Rokklagið" for being the most rock-like out of their songs, and "The Money Song" for the band's certainty that the song would be commercially successful.

** The song ''Svefn-g-englar'': Svefngenglar simply means "Sleepwalkers." Englar also means "Angels," so the title is a forced pun and can be translated as "Sleepwalking Angels"
