* ThrowItIn: The 2007 reunion tour was the result of a collective shrug and the band asking each other "Why the hell not?" Almost the entirety of Genesis's lineup had gotten together for an event celebrating the release of a boxset of the band's work and members began leaving one by one until it was just Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford, and Tony Banks sitting around and chatting. The three looked at each other and realized that they represented the longest-serving incarnation of the band and decided to hit the road together.

* MagnumOpusDissonance: While ''Selling England by the Pound'' is the album you're most likely to hear cited as Genesis' best (for example, it's their best-rated album on Prog Archives), some of the band members themselves have reservations with it. They don't think it's a ''bad'' album, but they think it could have been better. Some of the band members also feel that ''Music/TheLambLiesDownOnBroadway'', another candidate you're likely to hear cited as their best recording, gets progressively weaker towards the end.

* TheOtherMarty: Between Phillips' departure and Hackett's arrival, the band had another guitarist named Mick Barnard. Since he never performed on any official albums, and was only in the band for a few months, he is largely forgotten by most fans. An appearance on British TV in November 1970 includes Barnard in the band, but the recording of the broadcast has since been lost.



** Ray Wilson also to an extent, as his career with Genesis was killed by fan indifference before it could begin. However at the same time, he has seemed to parlay that brief time into a substantial career, still performing songs from ''Calling All Stations'' live and appearing as a guest singer at Steve Hackett's 2013 ''Genesis Revisited II'' show at the Royal Albert Hall.

** What makes the documentary even more tone-deaf is that Hackett at the time of the documentary's broadcast was currently in the middle of a nearly two-year tour behind his ''Genesis Revisited II'' record, that continued into early 2015, playing many classic Genesis songs which hadn't been performed live for decades. (For the tour for his 2015 solo record, ''Wolflight'', each show's second set was comprised of nearly all Genesis songs, going as far back as ''Nursery Cryme''.)

** While Steve Hackett's leaving was amicable (both Collins and Rutherford contributed to his first solo album, ''Voyage of the Acolyte'') the 2014 documentary ''Together and Apart'' (broadcast as ''Sum of the Parts'' in the US), a film supposedly meant to touch on both the band's long life and the noteworthy solo careers of all the band members, gives Hackett's solo career, which spans over ''twenty'' records, the barest of mentions. Hackett went on social media and to [[http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/genesis-guitarist-steve-hackett-blasts-biased-documentary-20141005 Rolling Stone]] to voice his displeasure.

* OldShame: Phil Collins has mentioned in internet postings not to be a fan of 'Match of the Day', from the Spot The Pigeon EP, which is probably why that track was left off of 2000's ''Genesis Archives #2'' boxset, where 'Pigeons' and 'Inside And Out' were included. However, all three songs are included in the ''Genesis 19761982'' boxset and the EP was repressed on vinyl in 2012, making the song easily available again.

** He hasn't spoken fondly of the music video for "A Trick of the Tail", either, mentioning in a 1994 Creator/{{VH1}} interview that he considers it one of the most embarrassing videos of his career.


Added DiffLines:

** Speaking of "Supper's Ready", the "Willow Farm" section was originally conceived as a separate song. The band later decided to include it in the suite, with Banks mentioning that it would prevent "Supper's Ready" from being too similar to their earlier song "Stagnation".
