* NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: Their music frequently draws from a variety of genres including folk, blues, country, gospel and R&B.



* NewYearHasCome: ''Rock of Ages'' was recorded, in part, at a New Year's Eve 1971 show. (Garth Hudson incorporated "Auld Lang Syne" into his performance of "The Genetic Method" right as the clock stuck midnight and 1972 began, to the delight of the audience.)

* LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition: Originally a 3-LP (later 2-CD) set, ''The Last Waltz'' soundtrack album was expanded into a 4-CD box set for the film's 25th anniversary, with many additional performances from the concert, a few live rehearsal versions, some studio outtakes, etc.
** ''Live at the Academy of Music 1971'' is a 4-CD/1-DVD set of performances from the shows that the ''Rock of Ages'' album was taken from, including an unedited soundboard recording of the complete 12/31/71 show and 5.1 surround mixes on the DVD.

* CanadaEh: All of the members came from Canada, except for Arkansas native Levon Helm. Occasionally you can hear it in the singing (like the way Danko pronounces "sorry" in "The Unfaithful Servant").

* UsefulNotes/SevenYearsWar: "Acadian Driftwood"

to:

* UsefulNotes/SevenYearsWar: "Acadian Driftwood"Driftwood" (some ArtisticLicenseHistory, since the expulsion of the Acadians was actually one of the events that led to the breakout of the full war. Also, "what went down on the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plains_of_Abraham Plains of Abraham]]" happened several years later, but Plains of Abraham is just [[RuleOfCool too cool]] ''not'' to use in a song lyric).

* LaterInstallmentWeirdness: ''Islands'' was basically a collection of leftovers and has lots of [[OutOfCharacterMoment Out Of Character Moments]] for the group, like a mellow [[ChristmasSongs Christmas Song]] ("Christmas Must Be Tonight"), an EasyListening instrumental ("Islands") and a bizarre song about AncientAstronauts ("The Saga of Pepote Rouge").
