YMMV / Jamiroquai

  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Admit it, the only reason most people even admit to watching the American Godzilla is for its soundtrack, with "Deeper Underground" being cited as one of the best tracks on it.
  • Ear Worm: "Emergency on Planet Earth", "Too Young to Die", "Stillness in Time", "Virtual Insanity", "Cosmic Girl", "Canned Heat", the list goes on and on and on.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: If there's any member of the band that receives attention outside of Jay Kay, it's their original, immensely talented bassist, Stuart Zender. A nice subversion on the commonly pervading trope, really.
  • Epic Riff: Again "Deeper Underground".
  • Face of the Band/I Am Not Shazam : Jay Kay has repeatedly tried to get audiences to view Jamiroquai as a group rather than just himself to almost no avail. For most people Jay Kay IS Jamiroquai.
  • Memetic Mutation: "Canned Heat" became this when it was used in the film Napoleon Dynamite for the lead character's awkward dance.
  • Signature Song: "Virtual Insanity."
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: "Virtual Insanity" didn't win a 1997 MTV Video Award for nothing. The most awesome thing? It's not a moving floor. It's a moving set! Actually building a set with a moving floor would've cost a fortune, so the whole thing was just 4 walls and a ceiling on rollers and a camera mounted stationary, being pushed around by a crew as the director ordered, while Jay Kay danced around inside (notice how the edges of the room occasionally wiggle). Metal rods could be pushed out to attach the chairs to the walls as needed.
