* CanonDiscontinuity: ''Resolver'' is potentially a victim of this, as this is their only studio album to be omitted from most digital/streaming music services. This was the first album since Nina Gordon left the band, and considering how several songs on the album contain harsh lyrics that are often believed to be about Gordon (for instance, Born Entertainer and Only You Know), it's understandable that they might not have wanted to acknowledge songs with such lyrics when Gordon and Post have since made peace.

Then the unthinkable happened, in March 2013 an announcement was made on the band's official Facebook saying "hatchets buried, axes exhumed" - officially PuttingTheBandBackTogether. Fan's patience was finally rewarded with the release of a new song "The Museum Of Broken Relationships" in April 2014 followed by the band embarking on a US tour. A second new song "It's Holy" was released during the tour. A brand new album, ''Ghost Notes'' followed in 2015 cementing the band's return.

Veruca Salt are an AlternativeRock band from [[TheWindyCity Chicago]], formed in 1993. Named after a character from ''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'', the band had some initial success in TheNineties before fading out of view.

The first and most famous incarnation of the band coalesced around Louise Post and Nina Gordon, who both played guitars, sang, and wrote almost all the band's songs (barring some covers and a co-write). Soon enough, they filled out the band with bassist Steve Lack and Nina's brother Jim Shapiro on drums, and gained a record deal with Minty Fresh Records. Their first album, ''American Thighs'', boasted their trademark Music/ThePixies influenced PowerPop and became reasonably successful, chiefly due to Gordon's "Seether" being released as a single and [[LizPhair Brad Wood]]'s {{Grunge}}y production helping it appeal to the alt-rock audience.

The band acrimoniously collapsed only a year later as Gordon left with Lack after arguments with Post. Post reorganised the band, bringing in new members to an almost RevolvingDoorBand-like degree, and has since recorded two more albums: ''Resolver'', which got a lukewarm reception due to its unfocused nature and AuthorTract-like tendency to throw [[TakeThat potshots]] at Gordon and various other targets, and ''IV''.

* ShoutOut: Let's see... ''American Thighs'' is a line from [[Music/{{ACDC}} "You Shook Me All Night Long"]], ''Eight Arms to Hold You'' was the working title for ''[[Music/TheBeatles Help!]]'', ''Resolver'' is another Beatles pun, ''Blow It Out Your Ass It's Veruca Salt'' could be a reference to ''Nevermind the Bollocks, Here's Music/TheSexPistols,'' the bridge of "Number One Blind" quotes Music/ThePixies' "Stormy Weather", "With DavidBowie" is obvious and "Volcano Girls" simultaneously referenced "Glass Onion" by Music/TheBeatles and their first hit with the verse:
