YMMV / Grizzly Bear

Go To

  • Heartwarming Moments:
    • Chris Taylor frequently refers to the band as his “home” and “family,” proclaims his unconditional love for them, and admits to missing them when they’re not recording or touring. Awww.
    • Dan covering "Too Little, Too Late" by JoJo for Ed's 30th birthday. Especially heartwarming since neither of them were on particularly good terms with each other around that time.
  • Ho Yay:
    • Every member except Ed is often Mistaken for Gay, for whatever reason.
    • Advertisement:
    • Chris Taylor describing the beginning of his relationship with Dan as a “courtship.”
    • Chris Bear joking (?) that “we all hooked up, Real World-style” during the recording of Veckatimest.
  • Mainstream Obscurity: They’ve sold out Radio City Music Hall, appeared in several prominent magazines, and are generally considered to be one of the greatest indie bands of all time- yet no one seems to know who they are.
  • Most Wonderful Sound: Pick any one of their harmonies. There’s a reason why they’re often compared to a boys’ choir.
  • Uncanny Valley: The video for "Two Weeks", which uses special effects to make the band appear to be malfunctioning singing automatons. Their skin looks unnaturally shiny, their eyes blink in an uncoordinated manner, and eventually light pours out of their mouths and sparks fly out of the back of their heads.


How well does it match the trope?
