* ''Mark Of The Mole'' was intended to be the first of a six part "trilogy", of which only four albums were released - the accompanying tour was a financial disaster that almost broke up the band, so they opted to move on to other projects. Of the released albums, ''Mark Of The Mole'' is the only one to have an overall plot, and it ends very ambiguously. The other three (''Tunes Of Two Cities'', ''The Big Bubble'' and ''Intermission'') largely consist of music supposedly made in-universe by the clashing cultures depicted in the story.

* AbortedArc: The American Composer Series, where the Residents cover songs by prominent American musicians. WordOfSaintPaul says that it was because the Residents [[ScrewedByTheLawyers had to pay royalties for the covers]].

After almost 40 years as a faceless collective, in the early [[TheNewTens 2010's]] the members - while not revealing their real identities - adapted individual monikers and personas: Randy Rose (the singer; formerly known as Mr. Skull), Charles "Chuck" Bobuck (the keyboardist and composer), and Bob (the guitarist). A fourth member, Carlos, was said to have recently retired, although he was credited as a guest vocalist on one album. In 2016, Charles Bobuck announced his departure from the band.

An avant-garde rock group that have released over 100 albums, helped pioneer the modern MusicVideo, and produced some of the creepiest songs, both original [[TheCoverChangesTheMeaning and covers]], for about four decades--all while [[AnonymousBand staying anonymous to the public]] until the early [[TheNewTens 2010's]].

The current lineup comprises Randy Rose (formerly known as Mr. Skull), Charles Bobuck, and Bob. A member named Carlos was part of the band (and even did vocals in lieu of Randy for one album, which was credited to the gang as Sonidas De La Noche) but has since retired.
