YMMV: Shonen Knife
- Germans Love David Hasselhoff: They are much more popular overseas than in their native Japan.
- So Okay, It's Average: From "Strawberry Sound" to "Candy Rock". Reviews of these albums have been quite adequate but not bad enough to make it a Seasonal Rot. Came back with a vengeance with the release of "Genki Shock!"
- Tastes Like Diabetes: And deliberately so. As they once noted in an interview, there's enough bands singing about war, poverty and other bad things; they just want to have fun.
