** Recently, [[Film/TheDarkKnight another movie]] has featured an extended, extremely destructive chase scene through the Chicago underpass system. Soundtrack swap material, anyone?

* FridgeBrilliance: The brothers really are on a MissionFromGod; the Bluesmobile performs impossible stunts right up to the exact moment it's no longer needed, whereupon it literally falls to pieces, and nobody appears to get so much as scratched, even in massive multi-car pileups or inside a collapsing building.

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: There was a platformer for the UsefulNotes/SuperNES. It has almost nothing to do with either the movies or the skit [[InNameOnly beyond the name]], controls that are poor at best, downright painful at worst, and it isn't designed too well. Oh, and it was made by Creator/TitusSoftware, who also worked on the Super NES PortingDisaster of ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersia2'', ''VideoGame/{{Carmageddon}} [[SuperTitleSixtyFourAdvance 64]]'' (another Porting Disaster), and last but not least, ''VideoGame/{{Superman 64}}''. Not much more needs to be said about this.

** 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. Billy Preston! Charlie Musselwhite. Koko Taylor. And numerous others.

*** [[{{Earworm}} 634-5789]] and Funky Nassau are also quite catchy.

** Cab Calloway's "Minnie the Moocher" was nearly a victim to this trope. When Calloway went in to record, he was under the impression that it was his recent disco version that Landis wanted, and was highly annoyed to find out they wanted him to sing it as he originally did. He presumably changed his mind when his performance of that song in the film made him a star again. * EarWorm: A new one every 10 minutes, but what do you expect when Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, James Brown, and Cab Calloway are cast members? * EpicRiff: Frequently. ** The Peter Gunn Theme is almost as associated with the Blues Brothers as it is for the original TV show. * FakeAmerican: Canadian-born Dan Aykroyd has a spot-on Chicago accent, perfectly matching the Chicago-born Belushi.

* FirstInstallmentWins Though only in the sense of ''movie'' installments (technically, the FIRST installment was on Series/SaturdayNightLive). * HilariousInHindsight: A Russian gangster promises one of his comrades that they will, eventually, drink vodka from Elwood's skull. Made funnier by the fact that Mr. Aykroyd now has a vodka brand which comes... in a bottle... shaped like a skull. There are even skull-shaped shot glasses available! ** Also, Elwood's "Who you gonna call, Jake?" at the phone booth is put in entirely new perspective when you consider Aykroyd's [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} other well known work]].

** Some folks actually thought Big Mac (John Goodman's character) came close though. But lacked the sarcastic charm of Jake's character.
