The peak of their popularity came in the late [[TheSeventies 1970s]] and early [[TheEighties 1980s]], during which they released five studio albums and assorted singles. However, the members' clashing personalities led to the band breaking up in March 1984; they re-united briefly in 1986 to re-record their 1980 single "Don't Stand So Close to Me", but broke up again shortly afterward. At the time Sting had no intention of rejoining them. They just kept ending up performing together again -- at Sting's wedding, while being introduced into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003 -- and opening the 49th annual Grammy Awards, where they announced their return. Their reunion tour, which made them the world's highest earning musicians at the time, ended in August 2008.

* AstroTurf: After "Fall Out" was released, letters began appearing in some local London music magazines praising the band's drummer, Stewart Copeland. Later (much later), it was revealed that those letters were written by one Stewart Copeland.

* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign:
AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: It was an recurring trend when Nigel Gray worked on their albums to name their albums after something foreign-sounding. They stopped doing this when Hugh Padgham took over as their producer.
** ''Outlandos d'Amour'' (the name of their debut album) loosely translates from French into "Outlaws of Love". The scat singing in "Masoko Tanga".title isn't even completely French. "Outlandos" is actually a portmanteau of "outlaws" and "commandos".
