Like the scow in the famous old story,
And what made the fight an enjoyable sight
Was the fact that they fought con amore.

And screams his war-cry to the gale.

In science:

One of the effects of this disorder is, as always, the softening of the van-Hove singularities (not shown).
Modeling disorder in graphene
Hove singularities and the development of Lifshitz tails (not shown) at the band edge, both induced by the increasing disorder caused by the random dilution.
Modeling disorder in graphene
The apparent saturation for smaller t0 is due to the proximity to the van Hove singularity.

In addition, the presence of a van Hove singularity (vHs) at ω = 4.4 eV in the JDOS, corresponding to the π → π∗ transition between the bands saddle points, located at the M point of the Brillouin Zone (BZ) , allows the photoinjection of high carrier densities in the outermost graphene layers.
First evidence of transient interactions between $\pi\to\pi^*$ optical excitations and image potential states in graphite
However, a thorough investigation was carried out in Ref. 21; a qualitative distinction between the two properties will occur near a van Hove singularity.

Electronic properties of mesoscopic graphene structures: charge confinement and control of spin and charge transport
This ferromagnetic feature is due to the fact that the Fermi level is close to the van Hove singularity on the γ band.144 On the other hand, the high values around k = − k′ are brought about by the third-order vertex-corrected term U 3V (V.C.) (k, k′ ).
