** The Oscar-nominated "Shakedown", from the ''Film/BeverlyHillsCopII'' soundtrack, was his only #1 despite sounding nothing like the rest of his music. In fact, it [[WhatCouldHaveBeen wasn't even supposed to be his song]]: it was originally given to [[{{Eagles}} Glenn Frey]], but he lost his voice on the day of the session and Seger was called in as a replacement.

* ChartDisplacement: "Old Time Rock & Roll" only got to #28, but is hands-down his most famous song, and at the least, a great deal better-known than the #1 "Shakedown".

* GenreAdultery: Regarded as among the best heartland and blues rockers of the 1970s onward, Seger had an unexpected country crossover hit in 1983 with "Shame On the Moon." While failing to chart country, several of his other songs, including "Fire Lake" from 1980, also had strong country elements about them.
