* VindicatedByHistory: As the backlash against disco has faded, a lot of musicians and critics have noted how well-produced their disco-era material is.

* HilariousInHindsight: The beat of "Stayin' Alive" turned out to be the ideal rhythm for CPR chest compressions. In other words, the song helps people actually stay alive.

* ColbertBump: The DarkReprise of "I Started a Joke" in the trailer for ''Film/SuicideSquad'' made them more relevant than they'd been in decades.

* CoveredUp: "Rest Your Love on Me", written by Barry Gibb, was an obscure B-side for the Bee Gees. Conway Twitty covered it and took it to #1 on the country charts.

* EarWorm: Notably ''Stayin' Alive'', ''You Should Be Dancing'' and ''Jive Talkin'''.
** Away from their disco period, try "Lonely Days", "I Started a Joke", and "Massachusetts" on for size if you want good earworm material. The chorus to their last single "Alone" is also a good earworm.

* OlderThanTheyThink: The ''SaturdayNightFever'' period was actually the Bee Gees' ''second'' wave of popularity. The first was actually as a [[Music/TheBeatles Beatlesque]] rock group in the late 60s, which completely lacked both disco and the falsetto that would become their trademark. Listen to songs like "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mc5oqjFsT5g Massachusetts]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ykU8iSKkJR0&feature=related To Love Somebody]]"; if all you know are the disco songs, you'll be surprised it's the same band.

** "More Than a Woman" is an odd case. The Bee Gees originated it for ''Saturday Night Fever'' but their rendition and a CoverVersion by Tavares were both included on the soundtrack. Tavares released it as a single and it became a hit, but that take has long been forgotten and the Bee Gees version still gets airplay.

* AmericansHateTingle: Once disco fell out of fashion, they became personas non gratis in the United States, even though they weren't recording disco songs anymore. For instance, their 1987 single "You Win Again" was a number one hit in ten different countries; its US peak was 75.
