* XMeetsY: Their sound is arguably Music/ThrobbingGristle meets Music/{{Kraftwerk}}.

* BlackSheepHit: "Testure" was deliberately written to be one, meant to be more danceable and radio-friendly than usual so that it's anti-animal testing message could be spread far and wide. In practice, [[InformedAttribute it doesn't really sound all that different from their usual stuff]], with the exception of the [[NightmareFuel unbelievably hideous]] lyrics, which for once are comprehensible enough for the poor listener to understand.

* FollowTheLeader: The LighterAndSofter sound of ''The Process'' was intended by American Recordings to capitalize on the success of Nine Inch Nails.

** To a somewhat lesser extent than either of those two, ''Mind: The Perpetual Intercourse'' is this as well- Goettel's joining made their sound more layered and noticeably darker than the more minimal and SynthPop influenced ''Remission'' and ''Bites'' were and set the stage for their signature sound.

In 1989, Skinny Puppy released the album ''Rabies'', which was (upon release) considered a NewSoundAlbum because it contained metal-style guitar riffs on three tracks, courtesy of Music/{{Ministry}}'s Al Jourgensen (who had struck up a friendship with Nivek Ogre when the two bands were touring together). In hindsight however, most Skinny Puppy fans have got over the 'surprise' and embraced the album, partly because the song "Worlock" is considered one of Skinny Puppy's [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Crowning Moments]] and to this day remains one of their [[SignatureSong Signature Songs]]. Unfortunately, it was during this era that Al introduced the band to heroin.

In 1990, the band released ''Too Dark Park'', which is arguably considered their artistic high point by the majority of their fans. The album is not the ''most'' bizzare and inaccessible of their works (that honor is reserved for 1988's "[=VIVIsectVI=]" (pronounced "Vivisect Six")), but it manages to approach it, with tighter songwriting, catchy basslines, and surprising sonic range that went from pure MindRape rhythmic noise (songs like "Convulsion") to dark ambient (like "Reclamation") to danceable, melodic and bizarre industrial (like "Tormentor") to darker and more minimal industrial (like "Nature's Revenge") to going between all these various different styles ''within the same song'' (like "Shore Lined Poison").

Skinny Puppy are widely considered the band responsible for the more popular vibe {{Industrial}} has today, as opposed earlier Industrial, which was largely inaccessible to the average audience. Basically, they took the experimental and bizzare approach pioneered by bands such as Music/ThrobbingGristle and applied it to almost-entirely electronic music. Unsurprisingly, their first releases, "Remission" and "Bites" (their first full album, released in 1985), sounded like experimental, angry SynthPop. Think of SkinnyPuppy as "Music/{{Kraftwerk}} (TropeMaker for SynthPop) + Music/ThrobbingGristle (TropeMaker for {{Industrial}})" and you'll have a good idea of what they sound like.
