YMMV: The Sisters Of Mercy
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: "This Corrosion", "Dominion/Mother Russia", "Lucretia My Reflection"... Really, all of Floodland.
  • Ear Worm: "Never Land".
  • Epic Riff: Both "Lucretia My Reflection" and "Driven Like The Snow" have epic bass riffs.
    • Da-na-naaaaaaaaaah, da-na-naaaaaaaaaah, da-na-naaaaaaaaaah, da-na-naaaah-naaaaaaaaaah. "Dominion/Mother Russia" takes a simple six-note riff and milks seven fat minutes of AWESOME out of it.
    • "This Corrosion" has that choppy synth riff combined with staccato guitar.
    • Also "Alice", and "Temple of Love" for guitar, and while "Valentine" and "Kiss the Carpet" aren't really epic (going by the internet definition of that word) they both freeze the blood. The latter is insanely complicated for an independent release.
    • Here's a challenge: Name a track on First and Last and Always that doesn't revolve around an awesome riff. Go ahead, I'll wait.
  • Face of the Band: Andrew is the only member of the band besides Doktor Avalanche anyone can ever remember without consulting the Wikipedia article.
  • Foe Yay: Andrew and Wayne Hussey. That is all.
  • Ho Yay: The Sisters covered both ABBA's "Gimme Gimme Gimme (A Man After Midnight)" and Dolly Parton's "Jolene."
  • Magnum Opus: Floodland.
  • Signature Song: "This Corrosion."
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: Ask Sisters fans about Vision Thing. You'll probably get at least a few of these.
