* MusicVideoOvershadowing: Asylum doesn't have that much to do with the song's meaning (which doesn't talk about a literal asylum). This could also be taken as simply a case of [[AllThereInTheManual All There in the Linear notes]].
** In recent videos it seems as if the director [[TheyJustDidntCare Just Doesn't Care]], chasing RuleOfScary over the song meanings. One {{egregious}} example would be The Animal, which is heavily built around the Indonesian lore of the Pontianak, a kind a Vampire similar to a StringyHairedGhostGirl. The song was written primarily from a western perspective in defiance of the Vampire fad (since Draiman has already contributed to that with Forsaken and Devour).

Added DiffLines:

* WasItReallyWorthIt?: ''Enough'' is about a man who ruins himself trying to buy goodies for his ungrateful girlfriend. She abandons him when the money dries up, leaving him feeling like his soul is frozen and his heart broken.

Added DiffLines:

* AChatWithSatan: ''Inside the Fire'' is about the devil tempting Damien to follow his girlfriend to hell by killing himself. Apparently, Devon wasn't [[YouAreWorthHell worth it.]]

* {{Applicability}}: ''Indestructable'' is about [[TheSpartanWay Spartans]], going by the music video, but is also a really good contender for a theme song for the [[TableopGame/Warhammer40000 Imperial Space Marines]].

* ChartDisplacement: Their signature "Down with the Sickness" technically wasn't their biggest hit at all. "Prayer" peaked at #3 on Alternative radio, and they've scored six #1 hits on Mainstream Rock. One of those six #1's, 2015's "The Sound of Silence", is their biggest hit on the Hot 100, peaking at #51.

Don't expect to nail down their actual genre very easily, as [[SeriousBusiness debates continue to this day]] -- they're generally seen as "something heavy metal and probably some hard rock" (you can blame the ambiguity on their AltMetal tendencies). Try not to mention them and "{{nu metal}}" in the same sentence at any point to anyone -- [[InternetBackdraft it isn't worth it]]. For all intents and purposes, they're a rock group.
