YMMV: Iron Butterfly
- Canon Discontinuity: Many fans of the band don't bother with anything post-Metamorphosis.
- Dork Age: Again, anything they did post-Metamorphosis tends to be considered this by many.
- Epic Riff: Dun dun, da da doo dun DAN dan dan
- Ear Worm: Pleaaaaaaase taaaake my haaaaaahhh-aahhhhh-aaaahhh-aaaaand
- Memetic Mutation: "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida"
- Seinfeld Is Unfunny: They were a big influence on many later Hard Rock and Heavy Metal bands, but nowadays most people don't know anything of theirs other than "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida", and they are generally regarded as a passing fancy of the Hippie Era.
