  • Breakthrough Hit: "Like The Weather" and its parent album In My Tribe were the band's mainstream breakthrough.
  • Breakup Breakout: Natalie Merchant had a successful solo career after leaving the band, while the rest of the band remained obscure, despite scoring a hit with a cover of Roxy Music's "More than This".
  • Cut Song: The band's cover of Cat Stevens' "Peace Train" was removed from later U.S. CD pressings of In My Tribe after Stevens, by then a Muslim convert under the name Yusuf Islam, made comments in interviews that many interpreted as supporting the fatwa against Salman Rushdie; Islam later claimed that the comments were meant to be jokes. The band's cover later appeared on the Campfire Songs compilation.

  • Sleeper Hit: In My Tribe only reached number 37 on the Billboard charts, yet made the band into stars. It took nearly two years to go platinum.
