Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
More Popular Spin-off: George Hurley, Mike Watt, and D. Boon were initially in a band called The Reactionaries, which was essentially The Minutemen with Martin Tamburovich on lead vocals.
Magnum Opus: Many fans and critics consider theirs to be Double Nickels on the Dime. Mike Watt himself has also called it his favorite album he played bass on.
Memetic Mutation: Mike Watt's flannel. Later on, this was sort of referenced by fIREHOSE's Flyin' The Flannel, which fittingly featured a closeup of a flannel shirt on the cover.
Sampled Up: "Get Out" by Sublime samples the drum intro to "It's Expected I'm Gone." The drum part to Nirvana's "Scentless Apprentice" is also suspiciously similar. The drum part was used yet again by Pinback in their song "Hurley," named after George Hurley.
