* HilariousInHindsight: In ''Until the Light Takes Us'', Fenriz snarks in an interview about black metal bands incorporating other genres and thinking it's to be cool. Years later, a [[Music/{{Alcest}} little project from France]] would jump-start a genre called "blackgaze" and then even afterwards, [[Music/{{Deafheaven}} a band from San Francisco]] would popularize it too, [[LoveItOrHateIt for good and for bad]].

* EpicRiff: A lot of them; in particular, probably ''every single riff'' on the ''Transilvanian Hunger'' album, though the title track takes the cake. Every fan of black metal will probably be able to recognise it within a second of the opening note.

* HarsherInHindsight: Fenriz disavowing political stances becomes a lot more harsher considering in 2016, a [[http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/darkthrone-fenriz-explains-how-he-unwittingly-became-elected-to-norwegian-town-council/ a local township would swore him into their town council.]] ''Forcefully''. Ironic considering he's always disregarded political matters!

* NeverLiveItDown: The infamous "Norsk Arisk Black Metal" phrase on the first pressing of ''Transilvanian Hunger'', along with the "Jewish behavior" statement, even after Fenriz showed regret for it.
** Fenriz being sworn into
political matters!office,considering his distance to politics.

%%* 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'').
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Some fans' reactions to the punk-influenced sound of more recent albums.

* 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.



* 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.

* BaseBreaker:
** As mentioned below, the band's second stint on Peaceville certainly qualifies.
** ''Ravishing Grimness'' and especially ''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 a bit more technical as well. Opinions remain divided about whether these changes were for the best.
** ''Goatlord''. Opinions are divided about whether it's better with or without the vocals (which are... unconventional, to say the least).
