* BathSuicide: Invoked with the original cover of their second self-titled album, which shows blood running into a bathtub drain and a hand. The back cover show's that it's just a woman who's cut herself shaving her legs.

Suicide was formed back in 1970 by artist-turned-vocalist Alan Vega and multi-instrumentalist Martin Rev. After gaining some attention for their confrontational antics in concerts, they finally got around to releasing their first album ''Suicide'' in 1977. At this point, their sound was largely defined by Vega's rockabilly-styled, creepy vocals and Rev's minimal arrangements, which consisted of primitive drum machines and simple, endlessly repetitive keyboard riffs, played initially on a beaten-up Farfisa organ before he could actually afford a synth. During this time they also released a famous live recording, ''23 Minutes Over Brussels'', which showed a Suicide concert degenerating into a riot.

Beside heavily influencing electronic music, Suicide have also had a major influence on various rock artists as varied as JoyDivision, {{Radiohead}}, and most notably BruceSpringsteen, whose critically acclaimed album ''Nebraska'' clearly showed their influence.

From the name you'd probably assume they're a Music/HeavyMetal band[[note]]Actually, there is a Turkish DeathMetal band by that name[[/note]]. But, in fact, Suicide has been an incredibly influential electronic PunkRock band. Besides the fact that they were the first to use the phrase "punk music" to advertise one of their concerts way back in 1970, their "synthpunk" style proved to be an enormous influence on SynthPop, {{Techno}}, {{Industrial}} and many other electronics-based styles.

* LyricalDissonance: "Rocket USA", from the first album, is as catchy and upbeat as early Suicide gets. And then you read the lyrics: -->''Riding around in a killer's car\\ It's doomsday doomsday\\ Speeding on down the skyway\\ 100 miles per hour\\ Gonna crash\\ Gonna die\\ And I don't care''

Suicide was formed back in 1971 by artist-turned-vocalist Alan Vega and multi-instrumentalist Martin Rev. After gaining some attention for their confrontational antics in concerts, they finally got around to releasing their first album ''Suicide'' in 1977. At this point, their sound was largely defined by Vega's rockabilly-styled, creepy vocals and Rev's minimal arrangements, which consisted of primitive drum machines and simple, endlessly repetitive keyboard riffs, played initially on a broken Farfisa organ before he could actually afford a synth. During this time they also released a famous live recording, ''23 Minutes Over Brussels'', which showed a Suicide concert degenerating into a riot. By the time of their second SelfTitledAlbum in 1980, they hooked up with [[Music/TheCars Ric Ocasek]] as a RecordProducer. Consequently, their second album was slightly more accessible and SynthPop-oriented than their nightmarish debut. Afterwards, Suicide lay dormant for a long time as Vega and Rev released solo albums - the most high-profile thing Vega did in this period was to contribute to [[TheSistersOfMercy The Sisterhood]]'s album ''Gift''. During their long hiatus they began to be recognised as an important influence on electronic and AlternativeRock music. They've come together every once in a while to release new albums.

* NamesTheSame: As mentioned above, no, we're not talking about a Turkish death metal band by that name. Nor the Wrestling/{{TNA}} wrester in the red and blue costume. ** Their first two albums are ''both'' {{Self Titled Album}}s.
