YMMV: Bryan Adams
  • Accidental Innuendo: Inverted in "Summer of '69". The song title is, in fact, referring to the sexual act, not the year. (Or played straight - Word of God is divided. Bryan says it's deliberate, the co-writer says it was accidental).
  • Dork Age: The 18 Til I Die album is this.
    • Though to some, the quality of the songwriting outshines the somewhat ridiculous lyrics, as we're shown what a great blues player Adams can be.
  • Ending Fatigue: The album version of "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You" is almost seven minutes long; it seems to finish at about five minutes in... then the piano comes back in.
  • Epic Riff
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Still very popular in Europe.
  • Love It or Hate It: So much that South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut made fun of him, with the Canadian president saying the country already apologized for Bryan Adams.
  • Signature Song: "Summer of '69", "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You", and "Heaven"
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: A frequent criticism of some of his ballads.
