So, you have a band. They have a tendency to need to be Careful With That Axe
. Their songs tend to be loud, aggressive, hardcore. Whether they lean towards Three Cords And The Truth
or Epic Rocking
, they are The New Rock & Roll
. Moral Guardians
hate them. They go crazy with the guitars, go wild on the drums, the music is always played at top volume...
Wait, what? A slow, quiet, gentle piece? Beautiful, soft, may be heartwarming
, but the defining characteristic is that it is far less aggressive a piece than you would ever
expect from this band. May be a Black Sheep Hit
, but differs from that trope in that it's not necessarily a hit, and only
applies to normally aggressive bands.
