YMMV / Village People

  • Covered Up: Many people know the Pet Shop Boys version of "Go West" better than the original.
  • Dork Age: Renaissance.
  • Ear Worm: Many of their songs can be considered this.
  • Face of the Band: Averted. While Victor Willis was the main singer and songwriter on most of their hits, the other members are well remembered as well due to their costumes.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: The song "Ready For The 80s", especially the line "The 80s promise ev'rything is just gonna be great" considering the massive backlash disco faced before The '80s even began.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Can't Stop the Music has Bruce Jenner in a leading role. Three decades before coming out as Caitlyn... (add the movie clearly struggles to juggle the band's Flamboyant Gay tendency with straight content, his casting is even more ironic\adequate)
  • Narm Charm
  • Signature Song: "Y.M.C.A." first, "Macho Man" second.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: The Renaissance album, an attempt to be a New Romantic group. It bombed.
