** This troper found that, upon playing ''Aquemini'' to his cousin, that she (for one) was under the impression (thanks to the mass worldwide success of "Hey Ya!") that [=OutKast=] was one man (Andre 3000) who sung pop and jazz-influenced Motown songs. There was considerable surprise for her upon hearing "Return of the Gangsta", "Rosa Parks" etc.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: According to an interview with Big Boi, Outkast were asked to perform a UsefulNotes/SuperBowl halftime show, but turned it down: They wouldn't be given enough time to perform both "Hey Ya!" and "The Way You Move" in their entirety, and André 3000 refused to entertain the idea of shortening the songs or performing them as a medley. It was never specified which Super Bowl this was, but given the time frame when those songs were at their most popular, Super Bowl XXXVIII seems plausible: This would be significant because the halftime show that did occur that year is mainly remembered for being the TropeNamer for WardrobeMalfunction.
