1* AuthorExistenceFailure: Work on the video for "King Rat" came to a halt when its director, Creator/HeathLedger, suddenly died. It was finally finished and released nearly two years after his death, to coincide with the song's release on the ''No One's First and You're Next'' EP.˛* BlackSheepHit: "Float On"; if not in sound, it's certainly far happier than their other songs. Quoth Brock:˛--> It was a completely conscious thing. I was just kind of fed up with how bad shit had been going, and how dark everything was, with bad news coming from everywhere. Our president is just a fucking daily dose of bad news! Then you've got the well-intentioned scientists telling us that everything is fucked. I just want to feel good for a day.˛* MissingEpisode: ''Sad Sappy Sucker'' was meant to be the band's first full album, recorded between 1994 and 1995 and produced by [[Music/BeatHappening Calvin Johnson]] for K Records. K shelved the album, the band moved on to a different label, and ''This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About'' became their first full album to be released instead. K Records finally put out ''Sad Sappy Sucker'' in 2001, to coincide with the success of ''The Moon And Antarctica''. ˛* NoExportForYou: ''Night On the Sun'' was originally released only in Japan. It was later sent via vinyl to the U.S. when the band signed with Epic Labels.˛* PlayingAgainstType: The band's well known for playing really cynical and bitter songs. Then came Float On, which is the polar opposite.˛** They also had a minor follow-up hit with "Dashboard" from ''We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank'', which engages with similar themes.˛-->Well, it could have been -- should have been -- worse than you would ever know\˛Yeah, the dashboard melted but we still have the radio...˛* RomanceOnTheSet: Multi-instrumentalist Lisa Molinaro is also Isaac Brock's girlfriend.
