:: When listened to in sequence, this provides an interesting alternate running order for the album that some listeners may end up preferring to the official one. For one thing, it ends less abruptly.

** The non-''Little Prince'' tracks on ''Duke'' were leftovers from the solo albums the members had just finished recording, as those albums had drained them all creatively. One of the songs Phil offered was "In the Air Tonight," about which Tony has said that he regrets turning it down.

* BigNameFan: [[InvertedTrope Inverted]]; Richard Hammond of the BBC's ''Series/TopGear'' and Amazon's ''Series/TheGrandTour'' has a notorious '''dis'''like of Genesis's music, to the point where his co-star Jeremy Clarkson sometimes uses their work to Troll the living shit out of him.

* FakeAmerican: Rael, the protagonist in ''Music/TheLambLiesDownOnBroadway''. A half-Puerto Rican street kid from [[BigApplesauce New York City]] would be unlikely to refer to money as "notes and coins". But in the song "The Grand Parade of Lifeless Packaging", he does anyway. Also in the song "Back in NYC", Rael says "your progressive hypocrites". An American (of the time, anyway) would probably have called them "liberal hypocrites".

** Gabriel's penchant for telling weird stories between songs arose as a way to keep audiences engaged during concerts, as the band would often take a long time to retune their instruments. Also, his usage of masks and costumes came about partially because of this, and partially because of his stage fright.

* ShortLivedBigImpact: The classic prog-era lineup of Tony Banks, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, and Mike Rutherford lasted 4 years and made four albums, yet was proved to be one of the more influential groups in ProgressiveRock.

** On the other hand, Music/JohnLennon praised ''Selling England by the Pound'', from which the band members took great encouragement at the time.



* 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.

* 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.
