* 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.
