- Black Sheep Hit: "White Walls" and "Selkies: The Endless Obsession". While they are not atypical of their style, they are by far (aside from very debatably "Mordecai" and/or "Telos", depending on who you ask) their most famous and recognizable songs, and while they are universally beloved by the fanbase, the band openly hates them and the fact that they cannot realistically retire them for any length of time without alienating older fans. They have clarified that one of the reasons why they hate "White Walls" is the fact that it is a huge, extremely complicated and demanding song that falls apart if anyone fucks up, but have also acknowledged that it is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser and will never permanently leave their setlists for that exact reason.
- Celebrity Resemblance: Tommy Giles Rogers looks uncannily like Jay Bauman from certain angles.
- Milestone Celebration: 2017 became one for Colors, with the band performing it in its entirety.
- Old Shame: The self-titled, for a while. They would eventually go on to release a remixed and remastered version in 2020, which suggests that they have warmed up to it over the years.
- Zig-zagged but they seem to feel this way about anything either pre-Alaska or pre-Colors: Rarely are tracks played from any of the albums before then, if at all. While they've performed one song from The Silent Circus ("Mordecai") and two from Alaska ("Selkies: The Endless Obsession" and "Backwards Marathon") in recent years, nothing else from those albums has made it onto set lists.
- The self-titled tends to get shafted hard, with only "Shevanel Cut a Flip" being rarely performed if at all; the most you'd probably get is a performance on the Colors_Live DVD, though "More of Myself to Kill" got some airtime in 2019.
