Lifehouse is an American alternative rock band from UsefulNotes/LosAngeles. Not to be confused with TheWho's music project of the same name. The band has released six albums:

* ''No Name Face'' (2000)
* ''Stanley Climbfall'' (2002)
* ''Lifehouse'' (2005)
* ''Who We Are'' (2007)
* ''Smoke & Mirrors'' (2010)
* ''Almerķa'' (2012)

!!Lifehouse provides examples of:
* AlbumTitleDrop: Their self-titled album, ''No Name Face'', and ''Almerķa'' are the only ones with no track that shares the name of the CD.
* AutoTune: Used on "Wrecking Ball" and "Here Tomorrow, Gone Today". Jason's used it in some live performances.
* BaldOfAwesome: Rick Woolstenhulme, the drummer.
* BreakupSong: "Bridges", "Blind", and "Had Enough", among others
* DaddyIssues: Jason has them, and they crop up in his lyrical content from time to time. "Walking Away" from the self-titled album is a notable example.
* DrivenToSuicide: The character in "The Joke."
* EpicRocking: ''No Name Face'' has two six-minute [[PowerBallad Power Ballads]]: "Simon" and "Everything". The latter is their longest recorded song so far, and a fan favorite.
* HappilyMarried: Jason, since 2001.
* LighterAndSofter: Their self-titled album - probably in no small part due to the departure of one of their guitarists and their bassist.
** Also ''Almerķa'', though its sound is much more diverse to make up for it.
* LyricalDissonance: "The Joke", a song about suicide, is up-tempo, bouncy, and downright jarring compared to the mellower material surrounding it on ''Who We Are''.
* MexicanStandoff: The cover image on ''Almerķa''. This is also an example of {{Spexico}}, because the cover depicts a scene from a spaghetti western even though the album is titled after a city in Spain. (But a justified example, because many spaghetti westerns have been filmed there.)
* NewSoundAlbum: ''Smoke & Mirrors'' has a slightly harder edge than their other albums. Programmed drums and AutoTune are also used on a few tracks.
** ''Almerķa'' ditches the alternative rock sound almost entirely in favor of experimenting with country, blues, and classic rock influences.
* NonAppearingTitle: Several times:
** From ''No Name Face'': "Quasimodo", "Simon"
** From ''Stanley Climbfall'': "Stanley Climbfall", "Out of Breath", "My Precious"
** From ''Lifehouse'': "Better Luck Next Time", "Chapter One"
* NotChristianRock: As Jason Wade was brought up in a Christian missionary household, some of his lyrics - especially in Lifehouse's early work - contain reference to his faith. Not to mention Wade's quietly collaborated with artists ''in'' ChristianRock, such as Steven Curtis Chapman (Background vocals on ''All Things New'') and Jeremy Camp (Co-wrote a song on the ''Beyond Measure'' album).
* PerishingAltRockVoice: Jason, especially in Lifehouse's early days - naturally resulting in:
** {{Mondegreen}}
** TheUnintelligible
* PermaStubble: Has become Jason's default look.
* SillyLoveSongs: A lot of their content.
* StepUpToTheMicrophone: Bassist Bryce Soderberg on "Wrecking Ball" from their ''Smoke and Mirrors'' album. He's also been known to take over lead vocals during live concerts sometimes so Jason can give his voice a break.
* VocalEvolution: At the beginning of Lifehouse (circa ''No Name Face'') Jason was fresh out of his teenage years and, like lots of post-grunge vocalists of the early 2000s, had a lot of [[{{Creed}} Scott Stapp]]-isms in his vocal style. He's since grown out of it a bit.
