* ThrowItIn: Kyle Cook [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=POTJy4b6hfY admitted in a songwriter's session interview]] that the guitar bend that opens up "Bent" was actually a mistake -- one that he attributed to him forgetting the song's key due to the capo -- but the band liked it so much that they decided to keep it in the recording.



* VocalEvolution: On ''Yourself Or Someone Like You'', Rob Thomas's vocal style was much less polished and frankly featured a lot of controlled shouting (see "Back 2 Good" and "Busted", for example). As his songwriting evolved, his vocal versatility evolved with it.

* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Subverted with "Push," which is from the perspective of an angry woman taking out her deep-seeded anger on her male partner. Zig-zagge with "She's So Mean," which is played more jokey, but the girl in question is clearly a bitch.

Added DiffLines:

** He also likes telling a story about being in a shopping mall at their height of the band's fame and someone shouting at him from the balcony "THIRD EYE BLIND SUCKS!" [[SureLetsGoWithThat He just sort of shrugged in agreement]].

Added DiffLines:

** Rob in particular has a good sense of humor about himself, like when he talked about his weight problems when he briefly had a cocaine problem.
--->"I think I have to be the first rock star who started doing drugs and actually ''gained'' weight."


Added DiffLines:

* ThoseTwoGuys: Rob Thomas and Paul Doucette are best friends in real life, so they appear on a lot of panels and do a lot of interviews together.


* TruckDriversGearChange: "Cold" drops one in after the bridge with almost no apparent setup. It actually sounds [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome pretty cool.]]

* AuthorAppeal: As mentioned on the Music/RobThomas page, Rob's a fan of African-American choir vocals. A choir's featured pretty prominently on "Downfall\".

Added DiffLines:

* InTheStyleOf: "She's So Mean" is made to sound like a '60s pop/rock tune, most notably "Do Wah Diddy."


* NamesTheSame: No, the Rob Thomas from this band is not the creator of ''Series/VeronicaMars'' and ''Series/IZombie''. The former eventually jokes about it, with a character declining tickets to the band because "Rob Thomas is a whore."
