** ''The Holy Bible'' itself ends on a downer - after a song about UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust, it then suggests that the sum total of all human achievement and culture is eventually going to be destroyed by sanctimonious MoralGuardians, to the point that nobody will remember {{Shakespeare}}, such is how mistrustful humans have become of each other, that we've come to see this as a normal part of living.

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Their first 3 albums sat comfortably in the 3-5 range. Since then they've released things from between 1-5 on the scale, but never harder than that. ''Everything Must Go'' and ''This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours'' sit at a 3 on the scale. The limited-edition single ''The Masses Against the Classes'' is a definite 5. Their "softest" albums to date, ''Lifeblood'' and ''Rewind The Film'', probably sit at a 2. Their latest album ''Futurology'' is a 3 or a 4.

Added DiffLines:

* TheQuietOne: Sean Moore, though not as bad as most examples. Ironically, out of the band he's the most active on social media, particularly Twitter.

* DeadpanSnarker: Each member of the band, with Nicky being the snarkiest and Sean being the most deadpan. For example, when the band were collectively asked what they had learned from making a solo album in an interview, Sean Moore dryly quipped "Not to do one".



* FourTemperamentEnsemble: James Dean Bradfield is choleric, Nicky Wire is sanguine, Richey Edwards is melancholic, and Sean Moore is phlegmatic.

** Anyone listening to ''The Holy Bible'' or ''Journal For Plague Lovers'' for the first time after enjoying any of their other albums is generally in for quite a shock.

* [[TitleDrop Band Name Drop]]: Possibly done in "Archives Of Pain" at the end of the second chorus, shouted alongside a list of notorious serial killers. The last name is meant to be Milosovic, but sounds more like 'Manic Street Preachers'.
