* GothRock: They're a tricky aversion. The Bad Seed's music is gothic in terms of using imagery inspired by the time period of the "gothic revival" in America, due to Cave's fascination with American history, the old west and the deep south. The genre of gothic ''music'' was heavily influenced by both Music/TheBirthdayParty and the Bad Seeds even though they existed before the term "goth" had any foothold as a subculture. The result is that the Bad Seeds get incorrectly attached to the gothic rock genre along with bands that identify as "goth bands" in spite of the fact they literally ''do'' play what you would call "gothic revival-influenced rock."

Nick Cave is an internationally renowned musician from the North East of Victoria, UsefulNotes/{{Australia}}. He started out in Music/TheBirthdayParty, a rather weird PostPunk band who would become a big influence on GothRock. In the middle of TheEighties went on to found ''Nick Cave and the Cavemen,'' who fairly quickly re-named themselves to ''Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.'' In recent years he's formed a third band, ''Grinderman,'' [[SomethingCompletelyDifferent who very unusually for him]] play rather [[ThreeChordsAndTheTruth straightforward rock music.]]

* SceneryDissonance: "Where the Wild Roses Grow" is a murder ballad set in a very pretty environment. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDpnjE1LUvE The video]] is a nice supplement.

*** Surprisingly averted in "Jack The Ripper." In spite of its namesake, the song has nothing to do with [[UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper the infamous murderer]].

He is also the author of the novels: ''And the Ass Saw the Angel'' and ''The Death of Bunny Munro,'' as well as the script for ''Film/TheProposition,'' for which he and bandmate Warren Ellis (no, not ''that'' Creator/WarrenEllis) also composed the soundtrack. And he's occasionally acted, most notably in ''Film/TheAssassinationOfJesseJamesByTheCowardRobertFord'' (he appears as a musician, playing the folk song "UsefulNotes/JesseJames"), which he and Ellis again scored. The film version of ''Film/TheRoad'' was scored by him and Ellis, and directed by ''John Hillcoat,'' who also did ''The Proposition.''

* BadassMustache / BadassBeard: With Grinderman came a mustache to the formerly clean-shaven Cave. Many of the members of Grinderman and a few of the Bad Seeds sport {{Badass}} facial hair such as Warren Ellis' wild-man grizzly beard.
