YMMV: The 1975
  • Anvilicious: "M.O.N.E.Y." isn't exactly subtle with its Drugs Are Bad message...
  • Awesome Music: ...but most people won't care because the song is just awesome.
    • The La's would be proud of "Girls", which sees the band moving towards a Power Pop sound. It's beautiful.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment / Nausea Fuel: That one part in the "Girls" video where a woman randomly pukes pink stuff.
  • Black Sheep Hit: "Chocolate" and "Sex" are different than the band's usual style.
  • Ear Worm: Oh, dear Lord. When it comes to ear worms, The 1975 probably have even more than Justin Bieber does.
    • "We go where nobody knows, we've guns hidden under our petticoats..."
    • "Yeah, you wanna find love, then you know where the city is!"
    • "WHY YOU TALK SO LOUD?"
    • "Drink slow to feed the nose, you know he likes to get blown..."
    • "SHE'S GOT A BOYFRIEND ANYWAY!"
    • "It's just you and I here tonight, why don't you figure my heart out?"
    • "For cryin' out loud, settle down!"
    • "They're just girls, they're just girls..."
  • Epic Riff: The repeating guitar riff in "The City".
    • The main synth hook of "Heart Out".
  • Signature Song: "Chocolate", though if you read the article you might've thought it was "Sex", which isn't as famous as "Chocolate" but certainly more Troperiffic.
  • Tear Jerker: "Is There Somebody Who Can Watch You?". With a melancholic tone, a stripped-down piano sound, and Matty's beautiful voice, it's one of the group's sadder songs. Oh, and it's the final track on their Self-Titled Album. When coming after a funky jazz track like "Pressure", that's severe Mood Whiplash.
    • "Menswear" could also count.
    • "You." It's about an extremely dysfunctional relationship that the singer is still holding onto without really knowing why.
    • "Robbers" has a powerful tone and lyrics about a love affair that's about to go downhill. It ends in a Downer Ending that will make your heart get crushed into ashes.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: A lot of fans haven't taken the band's second "Sex" video, which was done in color instead of the band's signature style of Deliberately Monochrome videos, very well.
    • Matty lampshades this at the beginning of the "Girls" video.
    Matty: Everything feels totally wrong. It's too...
    George: I mean...
    Matty: It's so pop...
    George: We're not a pop band.
    Matty: We're not a pop band, and it feels like a really... pop video. The whole scenario's not really what we're about. It needs to be black and white, for a start.
