YMMV: Placebo

  • Ear Worm: All the repeated lyrics of "English Summer Rain" make the song a shoo-in for this trope.
  • Ending Fatigue: The end of "Ask For Answers" is over a minute and a half of a repeated guitar riff, one that was nowhere to be found in the rest of the song. One has to wonder why that riff is there, because it's not like the song would be very short without it.
  • Epic Riff: The riff from "Pure Morning" is one, loud, droning chord.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Placebo is surprisingly popular in Greece.
  • Face of the Band: Brian.
  • LGBT Fanbase: Are you really surprised?
  • Narm: "Too Many Friends" even made a few diehard fans chuckle at its particularly on-the-nose lyrics.
    • The rapper(!) on "Spite & Malice."
  • Older Than They Think: "Ashtray Heart" is more than just a Battle For The Sun track — it's actually the original name for the band.
  • Signature Song: "Pure Morning," "Every You, Every Me" or "Nancy Boy."
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Brian Molko. Pictures like this and this don't help.
