Go To

  • Breakthrough Hit: Album-wise, Smash. Single-wise, "Come Out and Play".
  • The Cameo: Guy Cohen, who played the titular role in "Pretty Fly (for a White Guy)" music video makes a brief appearance as this character towards the end of "Why Don't You Get a Job?".
  • Chart Displacement: Their breakout singles from Smash only entered the Airplay charts. One of their #1 hits in the Alternative Charts, "Hit That", is not as big as the other two ("Come Out and Play" and "You're Gonna Go Far, Kid"). And their Mainstream #1's are a much sadder song ("Gone Away") and one that came late in their career ("Coming For You").
