70 - The album "Projector" was nominated for a swedish grammy award
71 - They have only two instrumental songs : "The Mind's I" and "Ex Nihilo"
72 - "Auctioned" is the sole clean-vocals-only song in DT's history.

^I must admit I forgot about that one when I wrote that fact....My mistake.

72 - "Auctioned" and "Day to End" are the two sole clean-vocals-only songs in DT's history

isn't "Mine Is The Grandeur..." an instrumental song, too? although it kind of belongs to "... Of Melancholy Burning" it is still a single track on the CD.

73 - Michael Nicklasson wears an obscene t-shirt saying "Fuck you, you fucking fuck!"
74 - About 8 months ago Niklas Sundin sported a rather emo/X\core hair cut.
75 - Anders Jivarp blew the straw house and the stick house away with ease, but he was fucked out of breath when he got to the stone house. Next time mate, next time.

You forgot "Mine Is The Grandeur"... And "archetype" if one would count it in. Not to mention Midwinter (on the "Tranquillity" demo), but it's more of a intro.

and we're not even to 100 yet.

76. Niklas used to be blonde but now sports black hair.
77. Niklas has a target-like tattoo on his chest.
78. Mikael has a "redhead" tattoo on his belly.
79. Martin H. has lots of cool tattoos.
80. Michael has a "dark tranquillity" tattoo among his many.
81. Niklas seems to stay more sober than the others.
82. There's photographic evidence of passed out from booze DT members.
83. Sambuca and beer are liked by the band.

I knew about "Mine is the Grandeur" but I consider it the intro to "...Of Melancholy Burning" As for Archetype, it's not really a DT song more than an experiment with keyboards and finally I also think Midwinter is more of an intro than a song in itself.

@Delirious : Crap, I think I'm starting to lose it...I forgot about that one too...One more like that and I'll lose every bit of whatever credibility I had

84. They started the band when they were very young and were hoping to be the next pet shop boys... with guitars.
85. Henriksson has big mean dreadlocks and when he does a windmill, they combine forces to make one big killer sausage dread, which I'd wager has the power to cave in walls if swung with the right intensity and timing.
86. It is at least one of the members' dream to swim with dolphins in the ocean off the coast of Daytona.
87. Anders Jivarp is the strongest member of the band, and has probably beaten every member of the band in an arm wrestle at least thrice.
88. They have a song about and inspired by the short story "Nightfall" by Isaac Asimov.
89. Niklas Sundin also has some art inspired by imagery of the same short story.
90. If you put all of Dark Tranquillitys albums next to each other, and look at it from a distance, it makes you really happy.

92.5. Martin B. goes under "our Martin".
93. Anders and Martin B. have the same cellphones (as mine, too).

84-90 = LOL. Especially #90 =)))

Yes, #90 was amazing.

94. DT has over 120 songs, which isn't all that much for a band that's been around for over 15 years, but still...

95. DT is "the last remaining of the Three Kings".

Ok, yes, i don't have as much sense of humor as KC, but at least i contributed to the 900+ remaining things about DT.

98) Their EP Of Chaos and Eternal Night is probably the best EP in the history of music
99) Anders Jivarp had some problems with his back some time ago, so he couldnt play real fucking fast, but it seems hes fine and blasting
100) DT is simply a cool band
