* RevolvingDoorBand[=/=]LongRunnerLineup: In the band's early years members walked in and out on a routine basis. However, excepting a brief hiatus of Barney Greenway's in 1996-1997, the lineup has been stable since 1991, making them an example of type 4 of the latter trope.

The band's lineup changed considerably in its early days, and as such there are no founding members remaining. Several of its members have been involved with other notable bands, such as Music/{{Carcass}}, Music/{{Godflesh}}, and Music/{{Cathedral}}.

Starting off as an anarcho-punk band, the band eventually developed a SignatureStyle that combined crust punk and post-punk with early extreme metal (eg. Music/CelticFrost, Music/{{Possessed}}). After releasing a couple of albums which are now regarded as landmarks in the grindcore genre, they began taking influence from DeathMetal, playing a combination of grindcore and death metal (known as "deathgrind") to this day. Unlike many other grindcore bands, their lyrics do not focus on gore; the majority of their songs are political in nature.

* TheMidlands: From Meriden, and Barney is well-known for his Brummie accent (which he takes great pride in).

* MinisculeRocking: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybGOT4d2Hs8 You Suffer]]", which holds the record for the shortest song ever to be recorded: ''one second''.

* MinisculeRocking: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybGOT4d2Hs8 You Suffer]]", which holds the record for the shortest song ever to be recorded: ''one second''. Being a grindcore band, they naturally have plenty of other examples as well, especially on their first two albums.

Despite their place in music history, they're probably most well-known in the public eye for the song "You Suffer", which was included in the Guinness Book of World Records as the shortest recorded song (precisely 1.316 seconds long).

* CoverVersion: Barney joined forces with {{Dream Theater}} for a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=510om4YVkOY live cover]] of Music/{{Metallica}}'s Damage, Inc.
* CreativeDifferences: The reason why Justin Broadrick left. In his words, he had "had enough of Napalm Death very, very quickly". Nicholas "Nik Napalm" Bullen did this too before shifting his focus to studying psychology and English literature at a university.
* DeathMetal: Not initially; as mentioned above, they eventually switched to playing deathgrind.
* DreamTeam: They have done a split with legendary {{metalcore}} outfit Music/{{Converge}}.
** Also, the aforementioned collaboration with Dream Theater.
* GenrePopularizer: Whether they were the first grindcore band or not, they certainly caused genre to take off: they coined the term ''and'' are the most successful band in the genre.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: See how many members there have been? Yeah.
** Absolutely no founding members remain in the band, which possibly qualifies them for the largest amount of [[ThePeteBest Pete Bests]] in one band. Interestingly, after losing all their founding members, they've had a more stable line-up than most metal bands.

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Generally a very solid 10.
** "You Suffer" goes up to a standard 11 because of being [[MinisculeRocking very highly compressed]].

* [[TropeMakers Trope Maker]]: for {{Grindcore}}, though there were proto-grind bands like Siege, Repulsion, and Music/{{Swans}} that [[UrExample employed many traits of grind in a more primitive form]]. The Japanese hardcore act S.O.B. is the other main claimant to the title of "first grindcore act", though they were considerably closer to hardcore on ''Don't Be Swindle'', which was released around the same time as ''Scum''. In either case, both bands are friends with one another and carry deep mutual respect for their respective works, so it's not as if anything even resembling a rivalry exists.
* [[TropeNamers Trope Namer]]: The term "grindcore" was coined by Mick Harris, initially describing the sound of the band Swans to a friend. He also, incidentally, coined the term "blast beat" for the famous drum pattern that became commonplace in almost any form of extreme music (which he was also responsible for helping to popularize).
