** Manzarek also sings lead on "Close To You", an [=R&B=] number on the ''Absolutely Live'' album, and the B-Side to "Love Her Madly", "(You Need Meat) Don't Go No Further". Krieger also shared lead vocals with Morrison on the song "Runnin' Blue" from ''The Soft Parade''.
** Riders on the Storm (formerly The 21st Century Doors before the Morrison estate sued), a covers band fronted by Manzarek and Krieger, which has toured with numerous singers, most notably Ian Astbury of Music/TheCult, since the early 2000s.

* {{Bowdlerise}}: The lyric "She gets high!" in "Break On Through (To The Other Side)" was clipped on the original vinyl release, and all subsequent releases until the [=CD=] remaster in 2003.
** A notorious incident occurred when the band appeared on ''Series/TheEdSullivanShow'' in 1967. The Ed Sullivan people told the Doors to change the lyrics from "Girl, we couldn't get much higher" to "Girl, you really light my fire" days before the show. Neither Morrison nor Krieger wanted to change it, partially because they didn't want to be censored and partially because [[RuleOfFunny they thought it'd be funny to annoy the Ed Sullivan people]]. After the show, Jim claimed he'd forgotten to change the lyrics because he was nervous.

* TheCameo : In the film, Paul Rothchild appears as the man in the club who tells the band they're gonna make a million dollars, and Patricia Kennealy-Morrison appears as the priestess who marries Jim and Patricia.
* CarefulWithThatAxe: Possible TropeMaker.
** Never more effective than in "Celebration Of The Lizard": immediately after the "Little Game" sequence, Jim lets out a scream so shrill that he sounds like a woman!

** According to those present at the session, he recorded his vocal for "Five To One" when quite hammered indeed. This is clear from his sometimes slurred words--"You walk across the floowr widda ffflower 'n your hand"--and from his spoken-word ad-lib, during the coda, about going to the woods and getting "fucked up." (The original studio release faded out before this point for obvious reasons; the full coda, complete with profanity, was restored in later CD editions.)

* HeavyMetal: Usually not cited as an influence, but "Break On Through (to the Other Side)" was probably the darkest and heaviest song in pop music during the 1960s; its climax includes an ''almost'' subliminal "doomy thunder" sound that Music/BlackSabbath and Music/JudasPriest would make famous. And with "TRY TO SET THE NIGHT ON...FIRRRRE!" at the end of "Light My Fire", Jim may have birthed the MetalScream.
* HeavyMeta: "The [=WASP=] (Texas Radio and the Big Beat)", among others.
* HellBentForLeather: Its practically impossible to imagine Jim without his leather pants.

* LargeHam: Morrison - present throughout but increasingly so from ''Waiting for the Sun'' onwards.
* LastNoteHilarity: Jim Morrison was the lone holdout from The Doors on an offer by Buick to license "Light My Fire" for a car ad. He would ridicule the rest of the band members for this by singing "Stron-ger-Than-Dirt!!" over the last four brass notes of the album version of "Touch Me" from The Soft Parade, a reference to cleaner company Ajax's slogan.note . The words were mixed out of the single version, though.

** ''Waiting for the Sun'' and ''The Soft Parade'' were considerably more pop-friendly than the group's early work - the former still had some hard-edged tunes like "Five To One" and "The Unknown Soldier", while the latter featured LighterAndSofter lyrics and extensive brass and string overdubs. The group returned to their hard blues-rock sound for ''Morrison Hotel''.
