  • Author Existence Failure: Staley and Starr.
  • Breakaway Pop Hit:
    • "What The Hell Have I" from the Last Action Hero soundtrack, until the film started to pick up a following, now no one really remembers the song.
    • Arguably, "Your Decision". The song has replaced "No Excuses" as the go-to Alice In Chains acoustic ballad on rock radio. The song charted very high, since there was almost nothing new that sounded like it at the time of its release.
  • Creator Breakdown: Applies in more ways than one: Staley's problems with addiction increasingly influencing the group's music, and his physical deterioration affecting his singing ability.
  • Fan Nickname: Fans usually refer to the self-titled album as Tripod because of the three-legged dog on the front. It's also been referred to as Lucky, based on an old joke.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Ann Wilson, Chris Cornell and Mark Arm contribute vocals to Sap.
    • The song in question, "Right Turn", is credited in the liner notes to 'Alice Mudhoneygarden'.
  • Old Shame: The band's origins in hair metal. Layne Staley was originally the vocalist for the hair metal band "Alice 'n' Chainz" (or however they spelled it), but none of the other members of Alice in Chains were in Alice 'n' Chainz. However, the other members weren't exactly clean, either.
