Hurt is an AlternativeRock band, formed in Virginia in 2000. The band produced two independent albums, "Hurt", and "The Consumation" independently. The albums "Vol.I" and "Vol.II" were their first release under a major record label, with Capital Records. The band was dropped from Capitol Records after they did not prove to be financially successful. They then went on to produce "Goodbye to the Machine" and "The Crux" independently with Amusement Records. The band has many songs that feature creative word play, and meaningful symbolism.

* CrazyJealousGuy: The narrator of "Got Jealous", unsurprisingly enough.

* DestructiveRomance: "[[DomesticAbuse Abuse]] of SID".

* MetalScream: Infrequent, but it happens, the last couple minutes of "Overdose" in particular.
* MohsScaleOfLyricalHardness: Gets as high as an 8 (or 9 for suicide references) in some songs; rarely falls to 4 or below. They're named "Hurt" for a reason, folks.

The first two songs on ''Goodbye to the Machine'': "Got Jealous", about a CrazyJealousGuy on the run after attacking his obsession's new flame, and "Pandora", about a woman blackmailing the man she's having an affair with into helping take out her husband for his life insurance.
* ObsessionSong: "Got Jealous", whose narrator gets so obsessed with the idea of someone else being with his lover that he tries to MurderTheHypotenuse.
* ProtestSong: "Wars." Who would have guessed "Wars," as one might expect from that title, right?the title. The lyrics seem to be from the point of view of someone who helped develop some kind of major weapon and now regrets it.

* ReligionRantSong: "Adonai" is a type 1 (RageAgainstTheHeavens); "Rapture" and "Talking to God" are both type 2 (religion as a pernicious influence). Various religons (''and'' atheists) get a bit of [[TakeThat poking at]] in "Flowers", along with just about everything else.
