- Epic Riff: "Unwell" accomplishes this with a banjo.
- Face of the Band: Frontman Rob Thomas, who has had a decently successful solo career.
- Name's the Same: No, the Rob Thomas from this band is not the creator of Veronica Mars and iZombie. The former eventually jokes about it, with a character declining tickets to the band because "Rob Thomas is a whore." (actually a sly bit of Self-Deprecation about the show's use of Product Placement) The latter series has the singer himself appear in the season 2 finale as an act for a party promoting an energy drink which when combined with a popular street drug caused a zombie outbreak. Thomas sees it all unfold in front of him before eventually being killed and his brains devoured by the new owner of the drink
- Signature Song: "3 A.M.", "Push", and "Unwell".
YMMV / Matchbox Twenty
