* TitleTrack: ''Invaders Must Die'' and ''The Day Is My Enemy'' both have one.
** ''Experience'' sorta has one with "Weather Experience".
** Non-album example: the ''What Evil Lurks'' EP.



* WhamShot: In the music video from "Smack my Bitch Up" you follow a person through a wild night out from his point of view (as mentioned above at UnbrokenFirstPersonPerspective). This person drinks a lot, harasses women, gets in fights with men (and women), visits a strip club and finally has sex with a stripper. In the final shot of the clip, when you look in the mirror, it turns out this person you where following was actually a woman...

After another four-year pause, the band put out a new album, ''Invaders Must Die''. This was noticeably better received than ''Outnumbered''. A sixth album, ''The Day Is My Enemy'', was released at the end of March 2015.

The band's landmark success finally came with ''Music/TheFatOfTheLand'' (1997). By this point, Howlett had managed to upgrade his equipment, making the beats heavier and giving the album an overall intense, creepy atmosphere. He also took the rock inclinations shown on ''Jilted'' one step further and openly aimed his music at the AlternativeRock audience, bringing Jim Davies (from the industrial rock band Pitchshifter) to add [[EpicRiff awesome guitar riffs]] all over the place, sampling from more rock songs, letting Keith and Maxim add more shouted vocals and including a straight CoverVersion of "Fuel My Fire" by [=L7=]. Howlett also put in more outside contributions, bringing in [[Music/{{Soundgarden}} Matt Cameron]], [[RageAgainstTheMachine Tom Morello]] (on the bonus track "No Man Army"), KoolKeith and others. His gambit worked: ''Fat'' became a massive success in the UK and USA (where it went to #1), spawned several hit singles with {{Nightmare Fuel}}lerrific videos ("Smack My Bitch Up", "Breathe" and "Firestarter") and brought them [[GatewaySeries an audience of rock fans that otherwise didn't really pay attention to electronic music]]. There was also controversy involved over the video to "Smack My Bitch Up" (which featured more nudity then any other video up to that point, as well as scenes of violence, drug use, and drunk driving), to the point that MTV refused to air it before midnight. But this turned out to be a case of NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity, as it won a VMA.

* PlanetOfSteves: Once Leeroy left, this meant two out of three of the band's members were named Keith. And because two Keiths wasn't enough, Diesel Power and You'll Be Under My Wheels featured vocals from rapper, KoolKeith.[[note]]KoolKeith had been sampled previously on Out of Space and Smack My Bitch Up.[[/note]]

TheProdigy are an ElectronicMusic band from the UK. Besides being popular in their own right, they were one of the most important bands of the "Big Beat" subgenre of TheNineties (the other were The Chemical Brothers, The Crystal Method and Music/FatboySlim, for starters).
