* {{Intercourse With You}}: "Not the American Average"

* {{Alcohol-Induced Idiocy}}: During a live performance in Seattle in 2011, Danny Worsnop appeared on stage barely sober enough to stand, let alone perform, and behaved quite belligerently towards the audience. He was eventually escorted offstage mid-set, prompting the band to call members of the audience up to the stage to fill in for Worsnop so they could finish their set.

* {{Balloon Belly}}: In just four short years since becoming famous, Danny Worsnop has gained alot of weight, in fact he's almost unrecognizable compared to how he used to look.

* {{Vocal Evolution}}: Worsnop's vocals have changed dramatically due to heavy drug and alcohol consumption, along with a torn vocal cord in 2012. When they first came out he had a very wide range and a high pitched voice that resembled a british Anthony Green or Craig Owens. Now his voice is a lot rougher and lower pitched. In fact he can barely sing "Not the American Average" anymore.
** It is however good to note that the lower range he was left with, he has tried hard to improe his ability in. This shows on the Rock Mix of "The Death of Me"

* {{Follow the Leader}}: Their hatedom has levied this accusation against their early sound; describing it as a mix between Music/{{The Devil Wears Prada}}'s ultra slick melodic {{Metalcore}}, Music/BringMeTheHorizon's Emo Teen oriented look, and Music/EnterShikari's rave informed {{electronicore}}. Even their shift to {{Hard rock}} has been criticized as pulling the same trick Music/AvengedSevenfold, Music/BulletForMyValentine, and Music/BlackVeilBrides have already pulled.



* {{New Sound Album}}: "From Death to Destiny" for switching them from {{metalcore}} to {{hard rock}}

to:

* {{New Sound Album}}: "From ''From Death to Destiny" for switching them from {{metalcore}} Destiny'' brought in more HardRock influences, largely due to {{hard rock}}Danny growing sick of metalcore.

Asking Alexandria is one of the most popular {{Metalcore}}/[[ScreamoMusic Screamo]] bands of the 21st century. They are currently one of the modern faces of the genre and Sumerian Records flagship band with a rabid {{fandom}} and {{hatedom}}. Although they traffic on the usual metalcore tropes of screaming vocals and breakdowns, they distinguish themselves by being influenced by 80's {{Hard Rock}} and featuring euro influenced electronica sections.

They debuted in 2009 with "Stand up and Scream" was a modest success with an {{Electronicore}} sound, boued by the viral success of first single "The Final Episode" the album managed to pave the way for later success.

Their sophomore record "Reckless and Relentless" made them a smash, debuting on multiple charts and turning them into a mainstream, headliner act. this album saw them start to move away from electronic elements and the addition of hard rock and hair metal elements.

Their latest album 'From Death to Destiny" is not only their greatest success so far and the result of a drastic change in sound and image, almost completely ditching {{metalcore}} in favor of {{hard rock}} and {{arena rock}} with slight metalcore elements. While many older fans have griped, this has broken them through almost fully into the hard rock mainstream, with the {{power ballad}} "Moving On" being especially successful.

In 2015, singer Danny Worsnop left the band due to his fading interest in metalcore, and to focus on his 80s rock influenced project We Are Harlot. He has since been replaced by former Make Me Famous and Down & Dirty singer Denis Shaforostov, better known as Denis Stoff.
