* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: While the band is one of small few 70's power pop bands to maintain critical acclaim and moderate success with their new releases in the US (2009's ''The Latest'' being especially warmly received), the band has been absolutely massive in Japan since their debut album and have only seem to have grown in popularity since.
* MemeticMutation: Bun E. Carlos' chain-smoking before he quit. The band even once made a t-shirt featuring him with a cigarette in his mouth.
