** The "fucking Illinois Nazis" wound up being the first American-based neo-Nazis to be officially labeled a terrorist organization by their state in 2017, a result of the afore-mentioned tragedy in Virginia.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: One iconic scene has Jake and Elwood heroically running down a group of neo-Nazis with their car. In 2017, several protesters during a massive white supremacy rally in Virginia were mowed down, three of whom were killed, by one supremacist with his car.

* FirstInstallmentWins: Depending on which "first" we're talking about. If you're talking about the ''characters'', that started on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive''. In terms of ''movies'', there's no competition between the 1980 classic and ''2000''. It's also highly regarded as the singular best (and, aside from the first and arguably the second ''Film/WaynesWorld'', perhaps even the ''only'' good) movie adapted from an ''SNL'' skit.

* FirstInstallmentWins Though only in the sense of ''movie'' installments (technically, the FIRST installment was on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive''). It's also highly regarded as the singular best (if not the only good) movies adapted from an ''SNL'' skit.

* {{Sequelitis}}: ''Blues Brothers 2000'' is generally considered inferior to the original, mostly because (as described above) John Belushi's shoes were ''very'' hard to fill. It also suffers from a plot that takes some unnecessarily weird turns and a weaker script with clunkier humor compared to the original, but it does have some truly great musical numbers, which just might be enough to redeem it for blues fans.

** For ''Blues Brothers 2000'', anything by The Louisiana Gator Boys is hard to beat. They have Eric Clapton! And B.B. King. And Bo Diddley. And Dr. John. Steve Winwood. Billy Preston! Charlie Musselwhite. Koko Taylor. And numerous others.

* ChaoticGood: Jake and Elwood Blues manage to level a Chicago mall, a gas station, the front of Daley Plaza, and several police cars in their quest to save the orphanage they were raised in. They also offer to steal the money first before getting the MissionFromGod.



* HeReallyCanAct: Cab Calloway, Ray Charles, and Alan "Mr. Fabulous" Rubin all get extended scenes showcasing their comedy skills.

** "Jailhouse Rock". Easily a match for the original version by [[Creator/ElvisPresley the King himself]].
