* ChartingDisplacement: The band's second highest song in Hot 100, behind "Rollin'" (#65), is... "N 2 Gether Now" (#70). And their only #1 in the Alternative Rock charts is... "Re-Arranged" (the much better known "Nookie" and "My Way" hit only #3 - but in turn, both outcharted "Re-Arranged" in the Mainstream Rock charts - while "Rollin'" was #4 and "Take A Look Around", #8).

*** Then when Mike Smith joined the band, it was going to be a much heavier album, called ''Bipolar''. At one point, the title was changed again, to what Allmusic described as the [[SarcasmMode "charmingly titled"]] ''Panty Sniffer''. However, Mike had a falling out with the band and left, so they scrapped the songs they recorded with Mike and assembled ''Results May Vary'' from various sessions which produced different styles of songs, making for an inconsistent album. Shades of this unfinished album can be heard in some of the tracks that ''did'' end up on the album, like "Eat You Alive" and "Pass The Mic", as well as the two B-sides from the "Eat You Alive" single, "Shot" and "Just Drop Dead".
