YMMV / Guided By Voices

  • Archive Panic: Pollard has written more than 1.000 songs. Have fun getting through all this (and that's not even counting his solo albums). Or his side projects.
  • Attention Deficit Creator Disorder: Pollard is not only in GBV and has a solo career, but is in several other side projects like Boston Spaceships and Circus Devils. And that's not getting into Sprout's solo career.
  • Name's the Same: This isn't the Mitch Mitchell from The Jimi Hendrix Experience.
  • Write What You Know: Some of Pollard's songs are inspired by his experiences as a fourth-grade teacher, like "Gold Star for Robot Boy", "Teenage FBI" and "Non-Absorbing". "Your Name Is Wild" and "My Son Cool" are about his daughter and son, respectively.
