YMMV / Kilroy Was Here

  • Anvilicious: Um, OK, censorship bad?
  • Broken Base: It got real hard to be a Styx fan about a month after this album came out. To be fair, the rise of new wave displaced the other arena rock bands too (REO Speedwagon, Journey, etc.). But those bands didn't do it to themselves with a single album.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The protagonist's name, Robert Orrin Charles Kilroy ("ROCK"), who disguises himself as a robot. Isn't there a certain famous robot who's name is also "Rock"?. And wasn't there a rock opera written about said robot, with a fascist government who uses robots to enforce it's will? Not saying that there's a connection, but it was too coincidental to not point out.
    • Also worth noting is that the band responsible for said rock opera features a member who goes by the name K.I.L.R.O.Y. and they have been known to perform a Cover Version of Mr. Roboto both in concert and on their album The Cover Up.
