Trivia: Groj Band
  • All-Star Cast
  • The Bechdel Test: Rarely passed (since the two most promenient girl + girl conversations are between Trina and Mina, who are constantly trying to get Nick Mallory), but notably refferenced in the episode "Girl Fest", where Laney is trying to discuss "important stuff" (namely, music and shared interests) with a feminist model rock star, and is throughly disappointed when she is obsessed with stereotypical girly things.
  • Development Hell
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Prince Sapphire is the lead singer, guitarist and founder of Grojband.
    • He steals lyrics from Lydia Deetz's diary, of course if you prefer Claire Redfield that's cool.
    • Caillou is on bass, pretty good for a four year old.
    • Louis the Janitor rocks the keyboard.
      • Speaking of Wayside, looks like Pricipal Kidswatter is known as Mayor Mellow these days.
    • What do you know? Kitty is still a sidekick!
    • Jenny Donkers is still a huge fan girl.
    • Principal I.M. Greedyguts and Rupert Bear run the Kent Brockman News.
    • The school's party critic is played by Chris Mclean (If The Danza has any indication).
    • Speaking of Total Drama:
      • Harold looks a lot like a floating extraterrestrial orb, Sam's still a gamer but seems to have lost weight, and at one time he was a genie with a spitting disorder.
      • Gwen's still a goth.
      • Lightning's a black DJ.
      • And it wasn't the first we've heard Nick Mallory sing.
      • To top it off, Amy and Samey are once again two identical characters who are enemies with each other (Laney and Larry).
    • Brandy Silver now has a job as a store clerk.
    • On the subject of Detentionaire:
      • Uber Nerd Irwin Dexter is now a cool guitarist.
      • Principal Barrage is now a Goth Rockstar.
      • Zed the Skater is the Party Critic.
      • Lynch Webber is all that stuff Harold/Sam was mentioned above.
      • Jenny Jerkins is an unknown character.
  • Missing Episode: "No Strings Attached", albeit in certain states due to the "Straight into Heck!" joke.
  • Name's the Same: No, Corey spring his emotionally disturbed brother out of an institution, join forces with a resorseful girl so that they can make it to California for a video game tournament, all while dodging his parents and a sinister Bounty Hunter in the process.
  • No Export for You: The remaining episodes of season 1 can only seen in France, Italy, Australia, Latin America, Poland, and the UK.
    • The DVDs for Season one can only be brought from Mexico, almost all of South America, and Australia.
  • Official Fan-Submitted Content: The contest winning "Wicked Cool Transitions" from the website.
  • Screwed by the Network: While it's understandable that the new episodes haven't been airing, there is no excuse for Cartoon network to refuse to air reruns. The show was only being aired for 2 months before it was taken off the schedule and the network was airing the then-new episodes awfully fast, the show finally came back to Cartoon Network nearly a year later, but only limited to being watched on the "Watch Cartoon Network" app instead of being aired on the network itself....about two months later however, the show along with the episodes were pulled out of the website, which means you're stuck with the epsidoes in the foreign languages on You Tube.
  • Series Hiatus: Currently on this in both the United States and Canada, hopefully will be back on the air sometime this year. Word of God suggests that the episode "Rockersize" could begin with Corey telling the viewers "Sorry to keep you waiting, everyone!".
  • Talking to Himself: The members of the Newmans are voiced by their Grojband counterparts, which also leads to Crossdressing Voices.
  • What Could Have Been: Corey's voice actor would've been the same person who voiced Nick Mallory, and his original name was Tre Trippin.
    • Despite being musically multi-talented, Laney was originally the band's drummer.
      • Which counts as double, as that would have immediately made her an Expy of Kim Pines.
    • Larry was originally named Lenny.
      • Likewise, Lenny was also originally named Larry.
    • The show was originally intended to have a one-minute long theme song that explained the plot better, but got cut down to 20 seconds due to Cartoon Network's standards. A leica reel of it can be found here on one of the creator's Youtube channels.
    • The pilot of the show (which later became the basis for the episode Smash Up Terby) shows off several elements not present in the main show. A few of these include:
      • The fact that the show was supposed to have full 22 minute long episodes; these got cut down to two 11-minute episodes per half hour. Because of this, the version of the song "Tire Tracks" is longer than the version aired in the actual show.
      • The implicit presence of Corey and Trina's father, who has not appeared in the show at all to date; speaking of family, their last name is stated as being "Triffin" instead of "Riffin" at one point.
      • Mina has a different voice actor than in the main show.
      • The plot point of getting Trina's diary back to her, which is HandWaved in the actual series.
  • The Wiki Rule: Grojband Wiki
  • According to Word of God, Corey and Trina are raised by a single father and there never was a mother; he adopted them on his own.
  • Working Title:
    • The original title for "Soulin' Down the Road" was "Christrina", a reference to Christine.
    • The original title for "Curse of the Metrognome" was just "Metrognome".
    • The original title for "Girl Fest" was "Girl, You'll Be a Festival Soon".
    • The original title for "A-Capella-Lips Now" was "Unplugged".
