Kill the Lead Singer Last

In music videos where the band is hurt or killed expect the lead singer to be the last to go

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
In a music video where the band members are being picked off one by one the lead singer is always the last band member to be taken out, typically at the end.

==examples==

  • In the music video for "Miserable" by Lit when the band is being chased down and eaten alive by a gigantic Pamela Anderson the lead singer is the last one she devours.
  • In Fall Out Boy's rock opera Youngblood Chronicles Patrick Stump was the last one to die.

    I honestly think this is Too Specific To Trope or too rare.

    ^not really, watch any music video where the band bites it and you'll see this

    ^ it's too confined to one genre. Thus, too specific.

    You already started a YKTTW for music videos in which band members die. Narrowing it down to the lead singer dying last sounds a bit too specific.
