YMMV / Bad Company

  • Face of the Band: Paul Rodgers.
  • First Installment Wins: While most of their albums from their initial run are well-regarded, their self-titled debut still stands as their most famous and most often praised album.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Bad Company friend (and former bandmate to Paul Rodgers and Simon Kirke) Paul Kossoff died of drug-related heart problems in 1976 at the tender age of 25. Almost a year earlier, Bad Company had another big hit with "Shooting Star", a song about a young rock star who has a fatal drug overdose, much like Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, and eventually, Kossoff.
  • Tough Act to Follow: Their debut album is the most remembered by many people, going on to feature in plenty of "best rock albums of all time" lists. The others don't have this much love, despite Straight Shooter and Run with the Pack being well-regarded by fans.
