YMMV / Jefferson Airplane

  • Awesome Music: "White Rabbit" and "Somebody To Love" from Surrealistic Pillow are both regarded as defining songs of The '60s.
  • Dork Age: Jefferson Airplane post-Volunteers.
  • Executive Meddling: "Runnin' Round This World" was supposed to end Jefferson Airplane Takes Off, but was rejected by the record company. It ended up as a non-album B-side to "It's No Secret". Also, several of the songs of this album were censored.
  • Face of the Band: Grace Slick tended to get the most attention, though it was Marty Balin in the early years.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: "White Rabbit" begins with the immortal line "one pill makes you larger" — but considering how old they've gotten, that line has probably taken on an entirely new meaning for some of the male bandmates.
    • It also takes a new meaning when you find out that their first public performance was in a San Francisco club called "The Matrix".
  • Nightmare Fuel: "The House At Pooneil Corners" from Crown of Creation due to it's menacing intro melody, chaotic sound, lyrics about nuclear war and Jorma Kaukonen's air raid siren like guitar line. Also, the cover, which depicts an atomic explosion.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: "White Rabbit" in particular is obviously inspired by hallucinogenic drug use.
