* TheWoobie: Steve Perry. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFtTOhOqWy0 Behind The Music]] is the best example of it, and his FanDumb responds accordingly.

* DarkerAndEdgier:
** The Frontiers album. All the albums before it had been either progressive-rock or [[TheSeventies 1970s-style]] blues-oriented AOR, with the album immediately-preceding it, ''Escape'', being full of feel-good inspirational rock. Frontiers dove into harder-edged rock and angry lyrics about break-ups and future-shock, with synthesizers and angry guitar replacing the melodic rock of its predecessors.
** "One More" from the Trial By Fire album. The track is harsher in vocals and sound, with doomsday-inspired lyrics, and sounds out of place among the softer songs of the rest of the album.

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeMomentOfCrowning: They were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in 2017. Making it even better is that Steve Perry actually attended the ceremony (no one knew he was 100% coming until the ''day of''), although he declined to sing during the band's performance (Arnel sang instead).

* NarmCharm: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LatorN4P9aA The video for Separate Ways,]] with Steve Perry's exaggerated facial expressions, the band playing invisible instruments, and the band's constant angry posing, preening, and posturing. Likely intentional, though drummer Steve Smith looks ready to crack up laughing in parts.

* SignatureSong: "Don't Stop Believin'", without a doubt. It's the one song the band always plays in concert & is a guaranteed singalong, the one song ''everyone'' recognizes as Journey, and gets the most airplay out of the band's catalog.

** Now has the honour of being the very first videogame soundtrack ''ever'' [[http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/12/06/journeys-soundtrack-nominated-for-a-grammy to be nominated for a Grammy Award]]! And not just some small obscure award either, [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome it got nominated for Best Score]], placing Austin Wintory amongst heavyweights like JohnWilliams, HansZimmer, HowardShore and [[Music/NineInchNails Trent Reznor]]. Not to mention that to be recognized alongside the former [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments was also a lifelong dream of Wintory's]].
