** Danny Weinkauf. Starting around ''No!,'' he began to write songs for the band, on which he would sing lead. He's since parlayed this into a solo career, complete with a backing band of his own.

** Dan Miller, who really gets the chance to shine in the group's live shows. On top of playing guitar, he'll occasionally sing lead, and he plays Linnell's keyboard parts in songs where Linnell plays two instruments. That, and he usually gets at least one opportunity to bust out an awesome guitar solo.

** They've always been popular with children, even before they wrote or performed specifically for children. Throughout the '90s, their music routinely appeared on children's cartoons, and they even made live appearances on children's television. "Why Does The Sun Shine?", a fan favorite dating back to the 1980s, made its album debut on ''Here Comes Science''.

* ParanoiaFuel: "Hide Away Folk Family", "Where Your Eyes Don't Go", "Someone Keeps Moving My Chair", "It's Not My Birthday", "Hall Of Heads", "A Self Called Nowhere", "The Bells Are Ringing", "Rat Patrol", "Older", "Ant", "Bastard Wants To Hit Me", "I'm Impressed", "Can't Keep Johnny Down", "Black Ops," "Aaa", "What Did I Do To You?", "Lake Monsters"... That's a song off of each (non-children's) studio album (and at least one compilation). Yeah, it's one of the band's favorite tropes, and at least half of those have serious LyricalDissonance. "Someone Keeps Moving My Chair" is downright ''upbeat''.

* PeripheryDemographic: Even their non-children's music is popular with kids, as has been the case since they started. "Why Does The Sun Shine?" was re-recorded a children's album, over a decade after it first came out. Conversely, their children's music is still popular with the adult audience they originally wrote for--songs from their educational albums routinely make their way onto live setlists, and one debuted as a bonus track on a non-children's compilation.
