* NobodyLikesTheBassist: In the later years of the band, this was the rest of the group's opinion. In the liner notes of X-TG's ''Desertshore[=/=]The Final Report,'' wherein Chris and Cosey related the good times they and Sleazy had together, Genesis isn't even mentioned.

* DroneOfDread: Quite a lot of their material, most infamously "Hamburger Lady" and "Slug Bait".



* MindRape: "Persuasion"
* MindScrew
* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: They stay at the 10-11 ranges of the scale. Yes, their music is downright brutal even to this day.

* MindRape: "Persuasion"
"Persuasion" is from the perspective of a man emotionally abusing a woman into taking her clothes off.
* MindScrew
MindScrew: Just about everything about their music.
* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: They stay at the 10-11 ranges of the scale. Yes, their music is downright brutal even to this day. Back when they were first starting out, they were far, '''far''' off the scale.

Widely recognized as the {{ur example}} of the genre, Throbbing Gristle was an avant-garde {{industrial}} band from England, originally active from [[TheSeventies 1975]] to [[TheEighties 1981]]. They reunited in 2004, only to disband again in 2010 after the death of Peter Christopherson. Though they are oft overlooked these days, the group was notorious in the [[TheSeventies 70s]] for their transgressive, gruesome live shows and extremely dark lyrical content, which covered (among other things) {{serial killer}}s, cynical political/social commentary, and feelings of angry helplessness that followed the [[TheSixties 1960s]]; this effectively set the tone for future industrial bands, whose subject matter rarely strayed far from these themes. They also founded Industrial Records, the label which gave the {{industrial}} genre its name, and published many of its earlier exponents.

* TheBandMinusTheFace: X-TG. Genesis pretty much left the band in 2010, and he refused to let the remaining members use the name. They folded soon after the death of Christopherson, but continued releasing works up to the end of 2012.

* NeoClassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: They touched on a ''very'' wide variety of different genres ({{Ambient}}, PunkRock, Lounge Music / Exotica, SynthPop, proto-{{Techno}} / HouseMusic, Spoken Word and more-or-less pure noise, among others), though it generally all counts as {{Industrial}} due to its noisiness and overall menacing feel.
