* AwardSnub: For years was one of the most infamous examples among this for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Yes received a nomination in the early 2000's but was never considered again until TheNewTens and even then it took until 2017 for them to finally get in.

* WereStillRelevantDammit: For those who don't like the band's new-wave inflected sound of the '80s, ''Drama'', ''90125'' and ''Big Generator'' can come across this way.

* HypeBacklash: ''Union'' suffered greatly from this. It was marketed as the reunion of the classic Yes lineup and successful '80s pop lineup to form an album featuring the best of both. Against this kind of hype, the amount of backlash it got from fans of both eras is unsurprising. History has been kinder to it, but its always been tainted by the failure to live up to the lofty expectations.

* SignatureSong: "Roundabout" from TheSeventies, "Owner of a Lonely Heart" from TheEighties. Yes have had plenty of hits, but '''''everyone''''' knows these two.
** Surprisingly averted within the material released by what many consider Yes' signature '''''lineup''''', the one with Wakeman and White (although said lineup would make {{cult classic}}s instead). "Roundabout" had Bruford on drums, Wakeman on keyboards, and Howe on guitar. "Owner of a Lonely Heart" had White on drums, Kaye on keyboards, and Rabin on guitar. Most of Yes' other radio staples also do not contain the Wakeman/White lineup. While ''Yessongs'' was a hit and showed they were capable of performing Kaye and Bruford's earlier material, it wasn't until ''Tales from Topographic Oceans'' that they recorded in studio together on a Yes album.[[note]]White performed on part of Wakeman's ''The Six Wives of Henry VIII'', a medley of which is on ''Yessongs''[[/note]]

* ToughActToFollow:
** Some fans feel that if ''Tales from Topographic Oceans'' wasn't the follow-up for ''Close to the Edge'', it would've been much better-received. (''Close to the Edge'' could arguably be considered an example of this for ''the entire ProgressiveRock genre'', as it is the highest-rated album on Prog Archives and has been for at least most of the five years, if not longer).

* VindicatedByHistory:
** ''Tales from Topographic Oceans'' is slowly but surely gaining fans, and now seen as vastly underrated and unfairly lambasted.

** ''Union'' isn't a favorite for most fans, but its reputation has still improved, mostly since the backlash over Creator/AristaRecords' meddling has faded and it now being judged more on its own merits.

* TheScrappy: Tony Kaye to some fans for his restrained keyboard style compared to the flashier players like Rike Wakeman and Geoff Downes. Some fans call him "Can't play" for this reason.

* MemeticMutation: The guitar fill from "Roundabout", thanks primarily to the song's usage as the end credits music in the first two arcs of ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure''.

** ''Big Generator'', while having a few Top 40 hits, selling respectably, and getting good reviews, came nowhere close to matching the success of ''90125''. The TroubledProduction delaying it for two years didn't help.

** This is one of the things that led Horn to leave the band after ''Drama'', as he was sick of being jeered at by "fans" at shows in the UK (in America, Yes had much more favorable reception) that blamed him for Anderson leaving (when in reality, he had nothing at all to do with Jon leaving; it was CreativeDifferences).
