- Awesome Music: Even those who don't care for the band tend to enjoy their song "America" with Santana, which is absolutely epic.
- Broken Base: Between fans of their work after mainstream success with The Fundamental Elements Of Southtown, and between fans of their work after Satellite. Not to mention those who prefer their pre-Southtown days.
- Face of the Band: Sonny Sandoval, to the point the three non original members were able to temporarily fire the group founder. Although most fans are able to identify the other band members by name.
- Nightmare Fuel: The children singing the chorus of "Youth of the Nation" by the end.
- It's Popular, Now It Sucks!: Some fans upon their mainstream debut with Fundamental Elements of Southtown.
- Retroactive Recognition: 2006's "Goodbye for Now" features vocals from Katy Perry, two years prior to her second album, which served as her breakthrough hit.
- Tear Jerker: A somewhat common reaction to "Youth of the Nation" and various other numbers.
YMMV / P.O.D.
