* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Their [[SelfTitledAlbum self-titled debut]] is their MagnumOpus, without a doubt.

* EarWorm: The loop from "Ghost Rider" will ''never'' leave your head. '''''Ever.'''''
* EpicRiff: "Ghost Rider", "Rocket USA", "Johnny," etc. Endless repetition guarantees you won't forget them soon.
* NightmareFuel: "Frankie Teardrop" definitely qualifies. The two-note riff distorting slightly as it goes on (for ''[[EpicRocking ten minutes]]'') is bad enough, but when Alan Vega starts letting out those blood-curdling screams? Some have called this song one of the most frightening songs of all time.
* SampledUp: "Ghost Rider" is the basis for Music/{{MIA}}'s "Born Free". The youtube video of Martin Rev performing with M.I.A., predictably, has a lot of comments asking who's the old guy who can't play the keyboards properly.
* VindicatedByHistory: In the 1970s, Suicide were booed off many stages for their alienating songs and aggressive performances. Those songs, however, wound up inspiring many bands in what became PostPunk, {{Industrial}} and SynthPop, not to mention giving a whole new perspective to ElectronicMusic.
