* {{Emo}}: The band have been accused of being emo in the past due to pensive lyrics and Matt Tuck's appearance during the ''Hand of Blood''/Self titled EP.
** However, due to Matt's clean singing style and the band's rather "[[{{Wangst}} Wangsty]]" lyrics, they are arguably the closest thing to emo that metal has right now. Listen to songs like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hij1b1kG0Mw "Hit the Floor"]] and just try to deny it, whether you like the band or not.
*** For what it's worth, Tuck has more or less acknowledged that they're a pop band with a very thin metallic sheen.

* NewSoundAlbum: ''Scream Aim Fire'' has a ThrashMetal sound very akin to Music/{{Megadeth}} and Music/{{Slayer}}, and features much less [[MetalScream screaming]]. ''Fever'' has more '80s Hard Rock influences than the previous albums.

* YourCheatingHeart: Room 409 is about a man walking in on his partner giving oral sex to another man. Tears Don't Fall appears to tell a story of a man cheating on his partner and feeling guilty about it.

* RageBreakingPoint - Invoked in the songs ''Breaking Point'' and ''Temper Temper''. The former has shades of [[BullyingADragon var]][[YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry ious]] tropes, and details the lead up to the eponymous Breaking Point, while the latter has the aspects of [[UnstoppableRage other]] [[TranquilFury anger]] [[BewareTheNiceOnes tropes]]. Basically, they document what happens to anyone who has experienced bullying, to the point where the victim cannot take it anymore and retaliates; the end result being seen in ''Temper Temper''.
