The group was able to establish itself as a successful band independent of the show, releasing three albums and three extended plays, with five tours. One of these tours, 2012's Better With U tour, also served as fellow boy band One Direction's first US performances.
Following their television show's conclusion, the band went on indefinite hiatus in 2014.

Tropes in their works:
- The Cameo: The music video for "City is Ours" features cameo appearances from a few actresses from the Big Time Rush show.
- Cover Version:
- They cover a number of Beatles songs in the Big Time Movie soundtrack.
- Another one of their songs 'No Idea' is actually a reworked/half-rewritten version of a song by the same name by All Time Low. Both versions share a cowriter, Christopher 'Tricky' Stewart, and he produced Big Time Rush's version, so one can only imagine who introduced it to them. Whichever version is better is usually up to the listener.
- Rock Star Song: "Famous," which, while ostensibly asking "do you want to be famous?" basically says "look at us, we are famous."
- Sampling: Of course, "Windows Down" takes its instrumentation and chorus from Blur's "Song 2".
- Theme Tune Extended: The full version of "Big Time Rush" is about three minutes long, compared to the short version on the show.
- "They've Come So Far" Song: "Halfway There", which is about coming so far to achieving one's goal.
- Title Drop: Their song "Big Time Rush" (AKA "Big Time"), also the theme tune for their show.
