* 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 [[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.)

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]]''.

* EpicRocking: Frequent. ''Takk...'' and ''Með suð'' were the first albums to include more songs of a reasonable 3-5 minute length. "Untitled #8 (Popplagið)" deserves special mention though: the entire 12-minute song is basically one big crescendo.

** [[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 [[EpicRocking an hour, twelve minutes and 5 seconds.]]
