Jim Morrison was an iconic Badass Baritone
Added DiffLines:
* BadassBaritone: Jim in spades. He had the Badass attitude expected for a Sixties rock frontman, and a [[{{VocalDissonance}} surprisingly deep, silky voice for someone as young and pretty as he was.]]

* AntiLoveSong: Subverted. Many of the songs written by Jim were true love songs to a girlfriend, his future wife Pamela Courson, with whom he had an extremely volatile relationship.

Added DiffLines:
* PunkRock: Because of characteristics such as the darkness of their music and Morrison's frequent use of the MetalScream they are often considered a {{Protopunk}} band.

* HeavyMetal: Usually not cited as an influence, but "Break On Through (To The Other Side)" was probably the darkest and heaviest song in pop music during the 1960s; its climax includes an ''almost'' subliminal "doomy thunder" sound that Music/BlackSabbath and Music/JudasPriest would make famous. And with "TRY TO SET THE NIGHT ON...FIRRRRE!" at the end of "Light My Fire", Jim may have birthed the MetalScream. * HeavyMeta: "The [=WASP=] (Texas Radio And The Big Beat)", among others.

* NewSoundAlbum: ** ''Waiting For The Sun'' and ''The Soft Parade'' were considerably more pop-friendly than the group's early work - the former still had some hard-edged tunes like "Five To One" and "The Unknown Soldier", while the latter featured LighterAndSofter lyrics and extensive brass and string overdubs. The group returned to their hard blues-rock sound for ''Morrison Hotel''.

** Also "You Make Me Real" from ''Morrison Hotel'', which is a surprisingly poppy, upbeat song with a "rink-a-lee-tink-a-bink" piano. JerryLeeLewis probably loved it. * SpokenWordInMusic: "The killer awoke before dawn..." Also "Horse Latitudes", "Celebration Of The Lizard" and ''An American Prayer''. Morrison was fond of this in live performance as well. The band members have said that [[PrecisionFStrike sometimes they dreaded what Morrison was going to say]].
