* BaseBreaker: ''Brighter than a Thousand Suns''. It was the most unapologetically synth-led album of their gothic era, not to mention their poppiest (aside from ''Outside the Gate'', but that wasn't even intended to be a Killing Joke album to begin with). Fans of their early and later eras tend to despise it, while goths tend to view it as an excellent and unfairly maligned album that needs more love. Given that they haven't played anything from it in a very, very long time, it would appear that the band is in the former camp.

Don't link this as a trope anywhere.

* MusicToInvadePolandTo: They were often accused of being Fascists back in day due to various comments Jaz and the others made to the music press which were intended purely as RefugeInAudacity or [[Troll trolling]]. Their music is aggressive and harsh enough to back up those who really want believe such things, of course. Their actual politics tend towards the other direction.

* FanonDiscontinuity: ''Outside The Gate'', both because it's much more heavily based around synthesizers than their other albums, and because ExecutiveMeddling was what made it part of the Killing Joke discography to begin with: Though most of the then-current Killing Joke lineup were involved [[note]]Jaz Coleman, Geordie Walker, and an uncredited Paul Raven, who left the band after recording the album[[/note]], it was going to be billed as a Jaz Coleman solo album until the record company put the Killing Joke name on it, in the hopes of recouping the album's admittedly expensive production costs. The band themselves have admitted it shouldn't have been a Killing Joke album, but it isn't quite in CanonDiscontinuity - it was reissued alongside the rest of their discography in 2008.
