* BandOfRelatives: The original lineup went by the name "A Couple Of Couples," for they were indeed [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin precisely that]]. With the current lineup, though, [[ArtifactTitle this is no longer true]] - Aubert and Monniger kept the band going after their respective partners left the band, hired the other two and changed the name.

'''Silversun Pickups''' are a UsefulNotes/LosAngeles {{Shoegaze}} band who have steadily gained popularity, starting in the 2000s with the release of their debut, ''Pikul''. Originally consisting of two romantically engaged couples, they went by the name "A Couple Of Couples," but a lineup change made this become a ''not'' MeaningfulName.

The current lineup consists of [[DeadpanSnarker Brian Aubert]], [[ShrinkingViolet Nikki Monninger]], [[TheManBehindTheMan Joe Lester]], and Chris Guanlao. The band name is derived from a liquor store close to where the band members used to live; whoever's job it was to obtain booze was making the "Silversun Pickup," as it was called. It eventually became the band's name.

Two of their songs, "Lazy Eye" (from ''Carnavas'') and "There's No Secrets This Year" (from ''Swoon''), have appeared in seperate GuitarHero games. "Panic Switch" (also from ''Swoon'') has appeared in {{VideoGame/Rocksmith}}. Other relatively well-known songs include "Well Thought Out Twinkles" and "The Royal We".

* PrecisionFStrike: The Silversun Pickups never curse in their music, but their reaction to GameOfThrones's Red Wedding on Twitter certainly qualifies.

* LyricVideoMismatch: "Dots and Dashes" seems to lyrically be about ghosts or suicide; the video is a lesbian love story.
