Added DiffLines:

* EvenBetterSequel: "Real To Real Cacophony" is considered to be a lot better than "Life In A Day", setting the group apart from their punk roots into something DarkerAndEdgier that quickly got them a cult following overseas.

Added DiffLines:

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff : Though certainly loved in their native Scotland as well as other parts of the UK, they are extremely popular in Italy, and the feeling was mutual - Jim Kerr took up residence in Taormina, Sicily in the early 2000s, owning a hotel, working with local musicians, and releasing Italian exclusives such as the Live & Rare compilation.

Added DiffLines:

* FaceOfTheBand: Jim Kerr and Charlie Burchill pretty much ''are'' Simple Minds for a lot of people having been the only two constant members since the band's inception. Long time drummer Mel Gaynor gets a nod but he's spent time away from the band and has recently sat out the 2017 ''Acoustic'' tour and will not be on the 2018 ''Walk Between Worlds'' tour either though he remains an official member. The other members have chopped and changed so much over the years the RevolvingDoorBand is in full effect.

** In the US it is "Don't You (Forget About Me)", as it was their only song to top the charts in the US, tied to [[Film/TheBreakfastClub one of the most iconic films of the 190s]], and largely the only song they're remembered for in that country.

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Dream Giver Redux complains to no end about most reissues of ''Real To Real Cacophony''. For years, there has been much confusion about the album's proper title. The original was clearly titled ''Real To Real Cacophony'', but most reissues misspell it as ''Reel To Real Cacophony'' or even more heinously, ''Reel To Reel Cacophony''. He then goes on to explain how Virgin packaged the album in a glossy sleeve. Which is always the wrong shade of blue.

* CatchPhrase: Jim Kerr's shouts of "Let me see your hands!!" During live performances.



* PrecisionFStrike: Their cover of "Rockin' In A Free World" actually ADDS one.
-->We got a thousand points of light,
-->For the homeless man.
-->We got a kinder, gentler,
-->Much more pleasant machine gun hand.
-->Toilet paper, styrofoam too,
-->The ozone layer is [[PrecisionFStrike fucked]] up too.
