Bullet for My Valentine are a {{Metalcore}} band from Bridgend, UsefulNotes/{{Wales}}. They formed in 1998 as Jeff Killed John. The members are: Matthew Tuck (vocals, guitar), Padge (lead guitar, backing vocals), Jay James (bass, MetalScream) and Moose (drums).

Also, try not to confuse them with Music/MyBloodyValentine, it's been a problem.

They have four albums out:
* ''The Poison'' (2005)
* ''Scream Aim Fire'' (2008)
* ''Fever'' (2010)
* ''Temper Temper'' (2013)
----
This band provides examples of:
* AlbumTitleDrop - ''Scream Aim Fire'' and ''Fever''
* BadassBeard - Padge
* {{Emo}} - The band have been accused of being emo in the past due to pensive lyrics and Matt Tuck's appearance during the ''Hand of Blood''/Self titled EP.
** However, due to Matt's clean singing style and the band's rather "[[{{Wangst}} Wangsty]]" lyrics, they are arguably the closest thing to emo that metal has right now. Listen to songs like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hij1b1kG0Mw Hit the Floor]] and just try to deny it, whether you like the band or not.
*** For what it's worth, Tuck has more or less acknowledged that they're a pop band with a very thin metallic sheen.
* IntercourseWithYou: "Fever"
* {{Keet}}: Jay is known for being rather hyperactive during shows or interviews
* MrFanservice: A fair share of Bullet's fans are female due to Matt's appearance.
* MetalScream - All three types.
* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness - 7 to 8, with their softer songs in the 4-6 range. Most of ''Scream Aim Fire'', instead, is around a standard 9.
* NewSoundAlbum - ''Scream Aim Fire'' has a ThrashMetal sound very akin to Music/{{Megadeth}} and Music/{{Slayer}}, and features much less [[MetalScream screaming]]. ''Fever'' has more '80s Hard Rock influences than the previous albums.
* RearrangeTheSong - Bullet have reworked several of their songs from Jeff Killed John into material for their debut album "The Poison" and their first EP.
* ThePeteBest - Original bassist Nick Crandle left when the band renamed themselves Bullet For My Valentine and shifted to Metalcore, feeling the band would get nowhere. [[HilariousInHindsight He was wrong]].
* YourCheatingHeart - Room 409 is about a man walking in on his partner giving oral sex to another man. Tears Don't Fall appears to tell a story of a man cheating on his partner and feeling guilty about it.
** They might even be the two halves of the same story.
