- Mohs Scale of Rock and Metal Hardness: 3-5 seems to be their average range. A few songs even arguably reach a 6.
- Retraux: Many of their songs have a distinctly Phil Spector-ish sound that comes from using a lot of echo and chorus effects.
- Silly Love Songs: Lots of their songs are about love.
- Three Chords and the Truth
