In their native country, Take That are considered the most successful U.K. boy band of all time.

In their native country, Take That are considered the second most successful U.K. British boy band of all time.
time after Music/OneDirection.



* BoyBand: Take That's 90s tag. With all of them now aged 36-40, "man-band" has become more appropriate. Nearly 20 years into their career, they are still the most successful British boy band of all time, but only in the UK itself. In the United States and pretty much every other country in the world, that honor belongs to current sensations Music/OneDirection.

* OldShame: They admit that much of their earlier work has not stood up to the test of time. In fact, the only way they could perform some of their first hits, post-reunion, was to acknowledge the original concepts' absurdity and arrange them into a comedic clown routine during the Circus Tour.
** The only early songs that they regularly perform 'straight' are 'Pray' and 'Back For Good'. Howard has expressed confusion at fan reaction to their continued use of 'Pray''s original dance routine, and that he's not sure if fans genuinely like the dancing or if they're cheering ironically.
** The band express some discomfort at how they used to wear [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejNsyjEyD4c skimpy outfits]] for live performances of 'Relight My Fire'. They don't dress in assless bottoms anymore, but that doesn't stop them from dressing their dancers in outlandish outfits and trying to up the ante [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ihgUs0vy7o with]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_NYqMwg5fB4 each]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfCim4DttzE tour]].
* OneHitWonder: In the USA, they're only known there for their sole Top 40 hit, "Back for Good". That song was a massive success there (reaching the top ten and going platinum), and they would've probably had a few more hits, but they broke up shortly after the single's release.



* TheWoobie: After Take That broke up in 90s, Gary Barlow had some initial success as a solo act before being overtaken by Robbie Williams who then used his popularity to very publicly savage Gary. Gary became the music media's favorite whipping boy and the music industry then turned their backs on him. He completely withdrew from public life due to the humiliation and subsequently gained a large amount of weight from stress eating. It got to the point that Gary couldn't even submit songs for other artists in his own name, only for record companies to enthusiastically accept them when he used a pseudonym. Since the reunion and a public reexamining of how Gary had been treated, he turned into the IronWoobie due to how he managed to move on from what he called the 'wilderness years' with seemingly no ill will to those who made fun of him and ignored him and even went on to reconcile with Robbie Williams leading to the original Take That line up going on a record breaking tour.

* StepUpToTheMicrophone: Take That's earlier albums were dominated by Gary both as singer and songwriter, but Howard, Jason, and Marc all got their chance to shine in their first two post-reunion albums. Jason even got his own solo showcase (and the rest of the band got a five minute breather) during their Patience tour. Their Circus album even featured "The Garden", a song where all four current members shared vocal duties and the accompanying tour gave each member multiple opportunities to be the lead.
