* FaceOfTheBand: Ian Watkins. Sufficed to say, his crimes have forever tarnished the band's reputation. When he was arrested, they opted to end the band and form [[Music/NoDevotion a new one]] rather than hire a new vocalist.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment:
** In a 2010 videochat on [=MySpace=], Stuart says to Ian [[http://youtu.be/THumayDY8bA?t=6m13s "Babygirl asks, what's your guilty pleasure?"]] - not only is Ian's bursting out laughing upon realising the name of the person who asked it shudder worthy, but if you pay close attention, when the question's first asked (and missed amongst the rest of the band talking) Ian makes a SarcasticConfession to his drug problem, and does so again a moment later. Upon the question being asked again - the aforementioned "Babygirl asks" moment - Ian simply responds with "I just answered it" which can easily be misheard as "You just answered it."
** In the same video, when asked about his sexual partners, Ian says "more than you know", followed by another band member saying "We've seen all the videos" and another saying "Going to the dark place"
** In the "A Town Called Hypocrisy" video, Ian's "Oral... hygiene" joke.



** It's hard to watch the video for "A Town Called Hypocrisy" without cringing due to Ian's arrest & admittance to several charges of child molestation. Doubly so in light of the Creator/JimmySavile scandal, given that Ian's character in that video is a children's TV presenter seemingly modeled on Savile.
