- Growing the Beard: They released many tracks before the Boy's Life split which is almost universally regarded to be their best work. Most fans also prefer the album referred to as Stereo to their earliest work as well.
- "Seinfeld" Is Unfunny: Due to it being one of the most copied styles of indie music in the last few decades, with multiple waves and a healthy revival scene, it's easy to not realize how innovative they were when they first started out on the scene. Alas, this results in many younger emo fans regarding their music as "boring", or "too generic".
