* MostWonderfulSound: The vocal harmonies of "I'm Not in Love", which were accomplished by overdubbing '''254''' vocal tracks using tape loops and other then-state-of-the-art equipment. A clear case of DoingItForTheArt, and one where it paid off extensively; it was a huge hit and is frequently regarded as one of the best-sounding songs of the '70s.

* SongAssociation: Modern fans of 10cc were first introduced to the band by either ''WesternAnimation/{{Superjail}}'', which used "Rubber Bullets" as the opening theme for the pilot episode, or [[Music/JDilla J Dilla]]'s ''Music/{{Donuts}}'', which heavily sampled "The Worst Band in the World" and "Johnny, Don't Do It".
