* {{Anvilicious}}: ''Kilroy Was Here'', especially the 'Caught in the Act' video. At least JY and the Pannozzos seem to be enjoying what they may have thought of as HamAndCheese..
** Also, a lot of the songs on ''The Grand Illusion'' and ''Pieces of Eight.''
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: The band's only US #1 single, "Babe", was originally written by Dennis [=DeYoung=] as a birthday present for his wife Suzzane. The band liked it and convinced Dennis to include it in the album ''Cornerstone''.
* EarWorm
* FaceOfTheBand: Many, many fans believe that the band just isn't the same without Dennis [=DeYoung=]
** Glen Burtnik during ''Edge Of The Century''. Just watch the video for "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BtUrbSKDZ2Q Love is the Ritual]]". The camera focuses on him more time than all of the other members combined.
* GeniusBonus: During the chorus for "Mr. Roboto", the line isn't "I am the ''modern'' man", but rather "''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modron_%28Dungeons_%26_Dragons%29 Modron]]''".
* {{Mondegreen}}: "I am the maldron man!"
* TearJerker: "Show Me The Way" on the ''Return to Paradise'' tour. At the end, an image of drummer John Panozzo, who had just died, came up on the screen. The caption read: "John Panozzo--Rockin' in Paradise," followed by his birth and death years.
** "Babe" and "She Cares" can both be this, or TearsOfJoy.
** "Dear John" is a tearful requiem for John Panozzo. The band put away their mutual animosity to record this song shortly after their drummer's death due to a sudden and unexpected heart attack.
