* CoveredUp: Many of their covers are better known than the originals; regarding "You Really Got Me", Ray Davies himself said that it sounds better than his band's own version (the original, mind).

** Even happens without guitars: the aforementioned "Hot for Teacher" is very well known for its opening drum solo, and "Right Now" opens with quite the piano riff.

* NeverLiveItDown: The aforementioned "no brown M&M's" rider. However, it has also been hailed as a clever idea to make sure their concert arrangements are set properly.

** Also, when the true reason for the brown M&M's contract rider came out (As a sign that their concert setup safety arrangements contact was read thoroughly), it was hailed as a clever idea to make sure things were properly arranged.

** The actual Roth reunion. Full stop. While fan complaints about various aspects such as Michael Anthony's replacement were initially overriden by the wave of hype behind Roth, the tide has slowly turned against the band between an album that contained pre-Hagar era tracks and full of filler, Eddie reentering rehab and getting into fights with his own son backstage, releasing their first live album with Roth and him not able to be in tune and not even showing up for their own Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame induction. Not helping is Hagar who at first wished them well, but after a comment from Roth knocking Hagar's songs with the band, Sam seems to rip into them every time he gets asked now.
