Added DiffLines:

** "Michael's Song" from ''Reidolized'' is a candidate for the saddest track in the band's discography. It's a simple acoustic instrumental accompanied by some of the most somber sounding synths you'll ever hear.

Added DiffLines:

* BaseBreaker: The material since Chris Holmes left has been of mixed contention from fans. Some find it too close to being Blackie Lawless solo records under the W.A.S.P. name.
** Some of the albums since Blackie became a Born-Again Christian have been a bit of a turn-off for some older fans.

Added DiffLines:

* VindicatedByHistory: ''Helldorado'' came out when the peak popularity of W.A.S.P., and glam metal in general, had been long dead, and it came and went without a thump as a result. However, it's gone on to be a big fan favorite, with some even considering it the best post-80's album they did.

* {{Anvilicious}}: "Thunderhead". W. A. S. P. wants you to know that heroin is ''bad shit''. What makes it {{Anvilicious}} is the spoken word segment where heroin itself is talking to the eponymous addict as if it was some kind of demon, asking him to surrender his life and even commit murder, and Thunderhead readily agrees.

* SignatureSong: "I Wanna be Somebody," though "Animal (Fuck Like a Beast)" is well-known because of the PMRC controversy ans "Wild Child" is frequently covered by other metal bands.

Added DiffLines:

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Blackie Lawless used to perform wearing a cod-piece that shot Roman candles out of it. One night it back-fired and severely injured his groin. As he was getting patched up by paramedics back stage, he dead-panned "We wouldn't have to do shit like this if we wrote better songs."

* TearJerker: "The Story Of Jonathan" is sixteen minutes of Blackie Lawless narrating the life of Jonathan Aaron Steel (while in character as Jonathan himself). His whole life is basically one tearjerker after another.
