* TheDanza: Mangoni's real name is Luca Mangoni. Also, a couple of early members used their real, funny-sounding surnames (Cortellino and Zuffellato) as nicknames.
* [[FaceOfTheBand Face (and Eyebrows!) of the Band]]: Elio. The other guys are still known in Italy but absolutely not at the same extent.
** It helps that he recently became one of the judges in the Italian edition of [[Series/TheXFactor X-Factor]].
* HeAlsoDid: Elio and Faso dubbed the Italian version of ''BeavisAndButthead'' for a while. [=EelST=] also dubbed ''Film/TerkelInTrouble'' and Elio voiced the titular alien in ''{{Film/Paul}}''. This is just the tip of the iceberg however.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: during their 1998 USA tour they recorded four short episodes of a miniseries called "Vite bruciacchiate", about their fictional discovery of the lost tapes of a 1940s band who "invented" many musical genres that were born only decades later. This miniseries was broadcasted only once on the Italian state television, two years later, late at night and without any advertising. Since it was never reprinted in any format, it can only be found on old VHS tapes or on some [=P2P=] servers.
* SophomoreSlump: absolutely inverted. "Italyan" is cited as [=EElST=]'s best effort to date and is often put in lists of the best Italian albums ever by some critics ("Los Sri Lanka" is not counted as 2nd album for the reasons stated in "Stylistic Suck").
