  • Broken Base – Some fans of her darker material dislike Chelsea Girl for its Baroque Pop sound, while others love it.
  • High Octane Nightmare Fuel – Trouser Press called The Marble Index "one of the scariest records ever made."
    • If anything, The End... is worse.
  • Older Than They Think - Nico predated Kate Bush in the "first quirky female keyboard-playing singer-songwriter" department by 12 years.
  • Tear Jerker: A good chunk of Chelsea Girl, as well as "You Forget To Answer" and "Afraid".
  • True Art Is Offensive – Nico covered the entirety of "Das Lied der Deutschen". It's Germany's national anthem, but the first two verses were banned in post-World War II Germany (even before the Nazi association they were criticised - Friedrich Nietzsche said it started with "the dumbest phrase in the world") and only the third is used as the anthem nowadays. At a concert in West Berlin, she performed this while her backing band (which consisted of John Cale and Brian Eno) played the noises of a thousand-bomber raid. This was met with expected results.
