* {{Bishonen}}: The boys are thought of as this for most of the band's fangirls. That said, for some, Young Modern era Daniel can fall into IWasQuiteALooker for some people.
* BrokenBase: Mid '90s {{post-grunge}} Silverchair fans vs. late '90s/'00s experimental art pop Silverchair fans.
* FaceoftheBand: Let's be honest, who's the person most people could name when they hear "Silverchair." Hint: Daniel Johns.
* FanHater: A great many have derided their first two albums as second-rate Music/PearlJam knockoffs.
* FanonDiscontinuity: Ask a fan of the mid-90s grunge style Silverchair if the band has released anything since their hiatis (03-06). I dare you.
** Diorama falls into this for some fans.
** Conversely, many fans hate Frogstomp and Freak Show for being watered-down, derivative post-grunge, but love them from Neon Ballroom on.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Across the Night off of the Diorama album mentions Daniel hugging a man's arthritic shoulder. In an eerie coincidence, Daniel would come down with a bout of reactive arthritis not too long after the album came out.
* HateDumb: Many haters of Young Modern point the finger squarely at Van Dyke Parks or Paul Mac (or both) for "corrupting" Silverchair, inspite of both being heavily involved with the making of Diorama, which is thought of by many as being Silverchair's best work.
* GrowingTheBeard: A gradual process they have been going through throughout their career. Their first two records see them being "Music/{{Nirvana}} in [[Series/BananasInPyjamas Pyjamas]]", but on their third album, ''Neon Ballroom'', you see them starting to experiment with their sound. And by the time they release ''Young Modern'', they have successfully become ArtRock With Teeth (no mean feat in a genre with emphasis on melody and atmospherics), and being gritty, yet elegant and eclectic at once.
* IWasQuiteALooker: Daniel can fall into this for some of the band's female fanbase. Between Diorama and Young Modern, Daniel appeared to age 15 years, start wearing more, erm, eccentric styles (including make-up to appear as if he had a black eye) and started going bald. The difference can be quite jarring.
* PainfulRhyme: "There's no bathroom, and there is no sink, the water out of the tap is very hard to drink" from Tomorrow. Somewhat excusable given the band's young age at the time. "Big, big and violent, like a thing that's big and violent" from World Upon Your Shoulders, however is not.
* TheyCopiedItSoItSucks: See FanHater.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Young Modern for some fans for being completely different to a majority of the band's previous work. Diorama can fall under this to a lesser extent.
* ViewerGenderConfusion: Apparently, a local Australian paper published a photo of Daniel Johns and Natalie Imbruglia out together and holding hands, and, only recognizing one half of the couple, concluded that Imbruglia was in a lesbian relationship. This of course was when he could still be considered {{Bishonen}}.
* TheWoobie: After all that Daniel has been through in his career, being bullied at school, being falsely accused of stalking twice, falling victim to anorexia, coming down with reactive arthritis and going through a divorce with his wife, it's hard not to feel for the guy.
