* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: ''Rise of the Ogre'', despite being the band's biography apparently hasn't been printed since, since no book store seems have it and Amazon prices range from ''70'' to ''''''100 bucks''''''. Even ''worse'' on Ebay.

** Phase 3 had an entire ''2 hours'' of music that was getting saved for a sequel album that was never made. Presumably this is why the plot was moving so slowly. Because of this, almost nothing got resolved and we're left to imagine what actually happened across the five-year time span.

* TechnologyMarchesOn: At the time, the fact that the first Gorillaz CD gave you access to exclusive content on the band's interactive site was revolutionary. Now, if you play that movie that pops up when you put the disc into your computer all the way through, your browser opens up... to an error message. Indeed the whole "Enhanced CD" fad was on its last legs around the time of the [[Music/GorillazAlbum first Gorillaz album]]. Compare ''Music/DemonDays'' and ''PlasticBeach'' which feature no such Autoplay content, but merely references in the booklet to sections of the band's website to find lyrics and other content.

* ThrowItIn: According to interviews, the title of the song "Dare" came from the fact that the guest singer, Shaun Ryder, couldn't pronounce "there" because of his accent. The original lyric was, "It's coming up, it's coming up, it's coming up, it's there!" But it was changed after a few takes proved it impossible to record that understandably.
