* EarWorm: "Alex Chilton" and "Can't Hardly Wait" were clearly designed to invade people's heads. ''And never leave.''
* EpicRiff: A few, but "We're Coming Out" has a pretty damn epic one.
* GrowingTheBeard: While their first couple albums aren't considered bad, the 'Mats grew a [[Film/HotFuzz big bushy beard]] with ''Let It Be'' and never looked back.
* HarsherInHindsight: "Here Comes a Regular" can get even more depressing when you remember Bob Stinson's alcoholism led to his early death.
* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Pretty innovative and influential in their day, the 'Mats now receive less attention than some of their contemporaries. It can now be hard to understand what made them so different.
* TearJerker: "Sixteen Blue", "Here Comes a Regular", "Androgynous", "The Ledge"...

* BestKnownForTheFanservice: Oh dear ''lord'' do they ever. The cheerleaders are probably [[FetishFuel just as good a reason]] to watch the movie as the actual players are.
* CrazyAwesome: Danny Bateman.
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: [=McGinty=]'s speech about fear before the San Diego game.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** The "I Will Survive" scene has Nigel playing along and [[{{Squick}} rubbing his nipples.]] He's played by Rhys Ifans, who would later appear in ''Film/LittleNicky'' as Adrian, who's Squicked out when someone does just that before him.
** Jon Favreau would later play ''[[Film/IronMan Iron Man's]]'' bodyguard. Here he plays Danny Bateman, who is MadeOfIron!
* MundaneMadeAwesome: The final game. Not just the players, even the ''cheerleaders'' are going at it like there's no tomorrow.
* SoBadItsGood: Danny (Cop) and Earl's (Convict) reaction to Shane's 'can't we all just get along?' interrupting their argument in jail.
