Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulReleaseDate: "Deadache" and "Scare Force One" were released in Halloween of 2008 and 2014.


Added DiffLines:

* NoExportForYou: The albums before ''The Arockalypse'' pretty much have to be sent for, including, funnily enough, ''The Monsterican Dream''. This was thankfully averted after they toured Ozzfest, as ''Get Heavy'' and ''The Monsterican Dream'' can be found in the U.S. with a little effort.
* ThePeteBest: Lordi had two bassists before their initial success with Get Heavy, G-Stealer, and Magnum, who played bass in the album and appeared in the Would You Love a Monsterman music video.

* NeverLiveItDown: Their [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hiCdGmtjWMM playback disaster]], seriously. Fans lost respect for them and their haters got all the more justification for hating them.

* SignatureSong: "Would You Love a Monsterman", "Devil is a Loser" and "Hard Rock Hallelujah".
* VindicatedByHistory: Some Finnish people thought having them as their entry in the EurovisionSongContest would be a national embarrasment. They ended up winning it.

Added DiffLines:

* FandomRivalry: With Music/{{GWAR}}. Mostly one sided actually - GWAR fans tend to despise Lordi for poorly articulated reasons, Lordi fans either enjoy or don't care one way or another about GWAR.

Added DiffLines:

* ItsPopularNowItSucks: While the Eurovision victory brought them incredible fame and success, it also alienated some of the old, "hardcore" fandom. Their later album sales in Finland (Babez for Breakfast sold remarkably less compared to its predecessor Deadache) may have also suffered from this after the biggest hype was over.

Added DiffLines:

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: "Hard Rock Hallelujah", which broke the record at Eurovision.
** Their performance and subsequent first place at the EurovisionSongContest 2006 are also a CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
* NightmareFuel: Their make up makes them look like friggin demons.
