* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Florida Georgia Line is really 3OH3! Note the similarities.
* BrokenBase: Many fans of the band haven't been handling the Nelly remix of "Cruise" very well.
* CriticalDissonance: The band is quite polarizing in the country music fan community (especially after the Nelly remix of "Cruise"), due to their hard rock influence and reliance on party jams, but they're one of the hottest selling country artists.
** "Cruise" in particular deserves special mention. Even before the remix, it was pretty polarizing for its rap influences, but this didn't stop it from hitting #1 on the country charts and selling over 2 million copies. After the Nelly remix, the song and the duo themselves became even more polarizing, with some deriding the band for "selling out." Despite this, the remix helped the song sell even more and reached #4 on the Hot 100. In the end, "Cruise" has sold over 6 million copies, making it one of the best selling country songs of all time.
* CoveredUp: "Stay" was originally recorded by Black Stone Cherry.
** "Baby, you a song, you make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise…"
** "Get yo SHINE oooon!"
** "That's how we do it 'round here!"
* MemeticMutation / TheCatchPhraseCatchesOn: After a journalist coined the term "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bro-country bro-country]]" in August 2013 as a descriptor of FGL's music, the term caught on with music journalists and fans alike as a catchall term for the trend in TheNewTens of party-themed pop-country.
