* BrokenBase - As is typical with any band, each new album ends up as a slight base breaker. More recently, Carlos' departure and the addition of Brandon Curtis as backup vocalist have inspired some negative reactions from fans.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome - "Evil", "C'Mere", and "Slow Hands" from ''Antics'' are frequently regarded as this.

** Some of their lyrics are quite, quite dark. Take "PDA" for example: ''"You are a past sinner, the last winner, I'm reaping all around me.... you're so cute when you're sedated, dear. Oh yes dear, sleep tight, grim rite..."'' All sung in Banks' trademark monotone. The video makes it even creepier by featuring [[http://i.ytimg.com/vi/_MmLPktoxCk/0.jpg Banks' partially obscured face]] looking straight on at the camera through big sunglasses, completely still except for his lips as he sings it.

* FaceOfTheBand - Unlike most other lead singers of rock bands, Paul Banks is not generally cosidered the "face" of Interpol. The band is instead rather homogenous. When Banks undertook a solo project in 2009 he used a psuedonym, thereby preserving the status quo as it were.

** "Wrecking Ball" from ''Our Love To Admire''. ''"I'm inside, like the wrecking ball through your eyes, and I changed it all from inside."
