* MagnumOpus: Generally considered to be either ''A Blaze in the Northern Sky'' or ''Transilvanian Hunger'', though, as mentioned above, opinions can vary.
** MagnumOpusDissonance: Of the classic albums, the band considers ''Under a Funeral Moon'' to be the beginning of the pure black metal sound they became known for and the basis of all subsequent albums (at least before ''The Cult is Alive'').

* ArchivePanic: '''Holy shit'''. Sixteen albums and four demos. Be glad they only did one EP and a few singles; the compilations are usually ignored by the fanbase as they are just [[ExecutiveMeddling mandated by other labels]].

* AwesomeMusic: As one might expect from the band's long career, there is a pretty large amount of this. ''Soulside Journey'', ''A Blaze in the Northern Sky'', ''Under a Funeral Moon'', ''Transilvanian Hunger'' and ''The Underground Resistance'' stand out as particularly strong releases.

Added DiffLines:

* InsaneTrollLogic: Some fans don't get Fenriz and Culto's stance of "[[TheyChangedItNowItSucks Black metal became commercial]]", due to the fact that regardless of what happens to a genre, it ''still'' will become commercial either way.

** ''Ravishing Grimness'' and ''Plaguewielder''. The songs on these releases are way longer than the songs on most other Darkthrone releases from the surrounding time period, and the songs are quite a bit more complex as well. Opinions remain divided about whether these changes were for the best.

* BaseBreaker:
** As mentioned below, the band's second stint on Peaceville certainly qualifies.

** ''Goatlord''. Opinions are divided about whether it's better with or without the vocals (which are... unconventional, to say the least).
* BrokenBase:
** Is the band's incorporation of crust punk and traditional heavy metal influence since re-signing to Peaceville a welcome rejuvenation to a band whose sound had been stagnating, or is it an insult to the legacy of a once great band? For that matter, there are some fans who consider this material to be superior to anything the band had done previously.
** There are also a handful of fans who prefer the band's TechnicalDeathMetal sound on ''Soulside Journey'' and the instrumental ''Goatlord'' to any of the band's black metal works.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Some fans' reactions to the punk-influenced sound of more recent albums, and Fenriz and Nocturno's reaction to most rock and metal music that has come out after the early 90s.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical: After the ''Transilvanian Hunger'' controversy led to accusations of Nazism, the band's ''Panzerfaust'' album included the statement "Darkthrone is certainly not a Nazi band nor a political band, those of you who still might think so, you can lick Mother Mary's asshole in eternity." So yeah.
