* LongSongShortScene: The majority of Thin Lizzy's material just doesn't get the widespread exposure it deserves. Also, two parts of "Dancing in the Moonlight" were mercilessly spliced together for a cider advert.
** "Sha La La" is usually considered to have been wasted as a ''Nightlife'' album track. Had the band released it as a single it might have been a hit. Luckily a live version would appear on Live And Dangerous, a live album which is considered one of the best ever.

* AirGuitar: Thin Lizzy are just too damn riffilicious, and those guitar harmonies and the guitar "duels" are top-notch.

* LastNoteNightmare: The end of "Heart Attack", which is the last song on their last album, is Phil Lynott saying the song title while being accompanied by the last couple of power chords. Not really all that scary, but it's pretty damn eerie when one takes into account that this was basically the band's swan song and Lynott would die from heart failure just under three years later.

When he joined the band in 1974, the original guitarist Eric Bell had been and gone, recording the hit single "Whiskey in the Jar", Thin Lizzy's first major success. Joining Scott in the other guitar role was Glaswiegan Brian Robertson, a hot-headed Scottish guitar prodigy, and between them they developed the ground-breaking distinctive twin lead guitar attack which characterizes Thin Lizzy's sound.

* RearrangeTheSong: The group wrote a blues song called "Suicide" in the Eric Bell era, between their second and third albums, Shades Of A Blue Orphanage and Vagabonds Of The Western World. Aside from a few radio sessions and live recordings from 1972-1973, the band seemed to have all given up on the song. However, during the Fighting sessions in 1975, the song was resurrected, and Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson came up with a new, galloping bridge that was deemed so good the song made it onto the album.
