* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: At the end of their last reunion concert; ''Eraserheads: The Final Set'', [[spoiler: Buendia set their iconic piano (pictured above) on fire, signifying that as with all things, The Eraserheads has to end.]]
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Well, duh!



* FaceOfTheBand: Ely Buendia.



* IAmNotSpock: After their breakup, the four members cannot remove the association of being a part of biggest Filipino Rock act in history.
** Perhaps the worst victims are Ely Buendia when he formed his band ''Pupil'' and Raimund Marasigan with ''Sandwich''.



* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: ''Alapaap'' was largely suspected to be one. "Alapaap" itself translates to "in the clouds", said to be describing the effects of taking Hallucinogens.
** In fact, there was a court case involving a Philippine senator trying to ban the song because "[[OdeToIntoxication it teaches the youth that using drugs is okay.]]"



* YokoOhNo: Diane Ventura, wife of frontman Ely Buendia, is largely blamed for the split of the Eraserheads, [[MisBlamed even though she actually played no part with it.]]

* PrecisionFStrike: ''Pare Ko'', with its infamous ''Di ba, 'tangina?''[[hottip:*: "Tangina" is a contracted form of ''"Putang Ina"'' which means "Motherfucker" or "Son of a Bitch". In the song's context, however, it is an orphaned expletive, not intended for anyone, and simply means "shit". The sentence itself means "Isn't this fucked-up?"]]

* AGoodNameForARockBand: "The Eraserheads" was coined from the DavidLynch horror film ''{{Eraserhead}}''. Not that it was worth any significance to the band, they just though it sounded cool.
