* AwardSnub: Not even a nomination for ''The Last Waltz'' for the Best Documentary Oscar in 1978? How about "Evangeline" getting nominated for Best Original Song? Also no?

* StuckInTheirShadow: The public perception of the band in later years, at any rate, was that Robertson was the leader, especially in the wake of ''The Last Waltz'', in which he has more camera time than the others. Levon Helm was not happy about this, and some fans regard him as the leader, especially in the light of his memoir. But Helm himself emphasised that their musical leader was Garth Hudson; although relatively shy and soft-spoken, he was the oldest and most musically-educated one and his ability as a multi-instrumentalist meant that he played the most significant role in determining what they sounded like.

Then again, Robertson ''did'' write most of the music, especially after Richard Manuel dried up as a songwriter following ''Music from Big Pink''.

* FaceOfTheBand: Clearly averted initially, with two principal songwriters and three different lead singers. Robertson's attempt to become this later on led to a great deal of ill will.

* FaceOfTheBand: Clearly averted initially, with two principal songwriters and three different lead singers. The fact that they were such an organic group with no clear frontman is one of the things that Eric Clapton, for one, found so attractive about them. Robertson's attempt to become this later on led to a great deal of ill will.



* SophomoreSlump: Very much averted with ''The Band'', which is actually regarded as superior to ''Music from Big Pink'' by many.

* {{Mondegreen}}: Music/JoanBaez never saw a copy of the lyrics to "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" before she made her excellent cover version. "Stoneman's cavalry" became "so much cavalry", "I will work the land" became "I'm a working man", etc. Did not prevent her version from becoming a top ten hit.

** Most of the debut ''Music from Big Pink'' could be regarded as this, especially the bookending Dylan collaborations "Tears of Rage" and "I Shall be Released".

* CoveredUp: People are often surprised to learn that Joan Baez didn't originate "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down".

** The Band were also never nominated for a competitive Grammy, although they did get a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2008 and Helm's solo effort ''Dirt Farmer'' won for Best Traditional Folk Album that same year.
