- Big Name Fan:
- Lots within the world of Alternative Rock, from Kim Deal to Michael Stipe, but also Milla Jovovich, who as part of her on-again-off-again career as a folk-rock musician played a few gigs with Hersh as her accompanist.
- Weirder yet, an early fan of the band was The Golden Age of Hollywood star Betty Hutton (Annie Get Your Gun, The Greatest Show on Earth), who befriended Hersh when the two were studying at the same college in the mid-80s.
- Black Sheep Hit: The band was pressured into writing something that could potentially become a hit; "Dizzy" was the result. It became a US alternative rock radio hit and may have helped them develop a following in the UK, but the band always hated it.
- What Could Have Been: The original plan was for Throwing Muses to be an all-female band, but David Narcizo was the only drummer they could find.
