Their sound has changed over the years, becoming more experimental, then more pop accessible, and right back to a classic-era revival that they are currently going through now. Their classic lineup included Hugh Cornwell on guitar, Jean-Jacques Burnel on bass, Dave Greenfield on keyboards, and Jet Black on drums. Corwnell was the main singer, though Burnel takes the lead vocals on many of their songs. Cornwell left the band in 1990, being briefly replaced by John Ellis from Music/TheVibrators before current guitarist Baz Warne settled in during 2000.

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Unlike [[Music/SexPistols certain]] [[Music/TheClash other]] [[Music/TheDamned British]] [[Music/TheJam Punk]] [[Music{{Buzzcocks}} bands]] of the time, The Stranglers' keyboard-heavy sound rarely got above (and only occasionally reached) a 5 on this scale. In fact, many of their tunes are in the 3-4 range, especially on their later albums.

* BlackSheepHit: If all you know of the band is "Peaches" or "No More Heroes", "Golden Brown" might come as a shock. It was one of EMI's best-selling singles for years.

* LeadBassist: Burnel takes lead about as often as Cornwell. Even more so since Cornwell left.
* NewWaveMusic: One of the pioneers, with their more melodic, keyboard-heavy take on Punk Rock.
