The Veronicas (2005-present) are Jessica and Lisa Origliasso, born on December 25th, 1984. Twins from Brisbane, Australia, both are self taught guitarists and piano players. Known internationally for their catchy pop songs and [[SiblingTeam sisterly antics.]]

Their first album, ''The Secret Life Of...'' was acoustic pop rock, their second, ''Hook Me Up'' was classical electronic rock power pop, and their third is dark progressive pop with country and blues elements. Jess describes their music as: "[[MindScrew If you melted a barbie into some black nail polish and then sprinkled it with glitter and then maybe put some spit on it.]]"

During the lack of album releases Lisa started a side project called "Dead Cool Dropouts" with her close friend Tyler Bryant of Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown with Garageband, focusing on acoustic breakup songs; Bryant later contributed to their third album. Jess also had her own side project called Cakehole in 2007, which has a [[SarcasmMode pleasant]] song called "Stab You."

After being stuck in DevelopmentHell for over five years they split from Warner Brothers and signed with Sony Music. Since then they released their long-awaited third album, put out three singles from said album, and have started to write their next. They plan on filming a documentary, writing a book, and recording an EP as well as touring.

They briefly appeared as substitute coaches for The Madden Brothers of Music/GoodCharlotte on Series/TheVoice in 2016. They released a non-album single 'In My Blood' while coaching and it is intended to be a lead up to their fourth album.

They have worked with including Clif Magness (who has written with Music/AvrilLavigne), Billy Steinberg (Music/{{Madonna}}, Cyndi Lauper), Max Martin (Music/BritneySpears, Music/KatyPerry), Eric Nova, Dead Mono, Vince Degiorgio, Toby Gad (Music/KellyClarkson, Music/AliciaKeys) and Billy Corgan of Music/TheSmashingPumpkins.

Not to be confused with BettyAndVeronica, but [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/7/79/Veronica_167.png they did appear in a comic book]] with Franchise/ArchieComics due to a trademark dispute solved by cross-promotion.

** The video for 'You Ruin Me' takes this to another level.

** {{Lolita}}, just like Music/LanaDelRey, who influenced them on their new album.

** Did You Miss Me? shouts out to ''Film/{{Heathers}}'', Snow White, Bang Bang Bang, some common phrases in rap songs and the whistles in 2012/2011 pop songs.
** Lolita's music video alludes to ''Film/SnowWhiteAndTheHuntsman'' and Revenna's milk baths.

** At the end of "Change The World" ''We wanna change your bad attitude! (laughter)''
** At the end of "Luv" ''Shut up Lisa!"
** At the end of "I Don't Wanna Wait" there is a laughing mess-up of the lyrics.
* ScareChord: Most of Lolita is plain singing, but they edited the ''You'll love me Forev'''ah''' '' part that ends the chorus into an "AH!!!!" which finishes off the instrumental break downs and scares the listener.
* SopranoAndGravel: Jess does the screams live and Lisa handles the softer singing parts.
* SpokenWordInMusic: ''Untouched, Cold, Insomnia''
** "Did You Miss Me?" uses part of the famous "I'm Not A Heather I'm A Veronica" bit off ''Film/{{Heathers}}'' the movie.
* StalkerWithACrush: One of their exes is implied to turn into one of these right after their relationship ends in ''This Is how It Feels''
--> ''You got nothing to say, gettin' in the way''
--> ''Show up at my house''
--> ''You're gettin' so obsessive''
** The guy on the receiving end of ''Secret'' also plays this role.
* SubduedSection:
** "This Is How It Feels" verse three
** "This Love", Chorus 3, takes everything away except for the electronic piano.
** "Revenge Is Sweeter" last part of third verse, first part of chorus after that.
** "In Another Life" first part of the last chorus
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Have a big take no crap image, will go after people who hurt them and write snarky songs, but are sensitive to issues in their home country and use their platform to promote animal welfare, civil rights, gay rights, women's rights and equality.
* SurprisinglyGentleSong: "Speechless" off their debut.
* TakeThat: In the lyrics

* YourCheatingHeart: ''Revenge Is Sweeter (Than you ever were), All I Have, Everything I'm Not, Did Ya Think''
** Played with in the 'You Ruin Me' video; it's clear that Jess had no idea that the ballet instructor she was sleeping with was in another relationship. Possibly DisproportionateRetribution considering what the sisters [[WomanScorned do]] [[BoundAndGagged to]] [[AmbiguousEnding him...]]
* {{Yandere}} "Lolita", "I Can't Stay Away", "Everything", "Mad Love".
