With their second album, ''Wonder What's Next'' and its breakthrough singles, "The Red" and "Send the Pain Below", Chevelle achieved great mainstream success. If you listen to any Alternative music station regularly, you've probably heard several of their songs. The band's style features heavy, downtuned riffs, a driving rhythm section and Pete Loeffler's versatile singing, which can jump from a serene whisper to a shout in a moment's notice. Joe left the band in 2005 for disputed reasons and was replaced by Dean Bernardini, Pete and Sam's brother-in-law.

* LongRunnerLineUp: [[LogicalExtreme Both line-ups qualify]]; the current one is a Type 2.



* MonsterClown: The video for "The Fad" has a gang of clowns kidnapping people and beating them up. Not enirely played straight, as the people were wrongdoers being taught a lesson and are freed afterwards. The "I Get It" video also has a clown in it.

** "Well Enough Alone" ''starts'' with an axe murder MetalScream, and it can easily scare the crap out of an unprepared listener... especially if you're listening to ''Vena Sera'' in order for the first time, where this track comes right after the subdued ending of "Saferwaters".

* MisanthropeSupreme: The speaker of "Safer Waters", who despises humanity so much he would like nothing more than to de-evolve and crawl back into the primordial ocean.

* NotChristianRock: Caused a whole controversy due to the fact that they were briefly on a Christian label and the lyrics of a few songs like "Grab Thy Hand". The band members themselves are Christians, but Sam has said "None of us feels being a rock band on stage should be a pedestal for preaching".

* WordSaladLyrics: The lyrics are usually pretty oblique, although unlike Maynard James Keenan, Pete doesn't shy away from explaining what certain songs are about.

* AlternativeMetal: An example that (usually) leans a little more towards the "alternative" part, which explains their exclusion from the Metal index in the musicians page.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: ''Point #1'' is much more unpolished than later works, in part due to Steve Albini's production. Pete's vocals are also [[PerishingAltRockVoice different]] and the entire album has more of a debt to Music/{{Tool}}'s sound than succeeding albums.

* SurrealMusicVideo: The clip for "Vitamin R (Leading Us Along)" appears to be this, with the lead singer floating through bizarre landscapes, along with the band performing in a hospital room, and some other random imagery. Once you realize what the song is about, it all makes sense, as the video represents the hallucinations sometimes experienced by people addicted to Ritalin.

* DisproportionateRetribution: The video to "I Get It". Did your [[SmugSnake boss]] refuse to let you use the "winner's" elevator and steal your sandwich? Time to have him stalked by a clown, beaten up by a UFC champion, and tattooed with the words "Mr. Perfect" on his forehead. Admittedly, humiliating his employee when the guy was giving a presentation was pretty low, but still.
