* ArchivePanic: '''Holy shit'''. Sixteen albums and four demos. Be glad they only did three [=EPs=] and a few singles; the compilations are usually ignored by the fanbase as they are just [[ExecutiveMeddling mandated by other labels]].
* AwesomeMusic: Have [[AwesomeMusic/{{Darkthrone}} their own page]].
* BrokenBase:
** Is the band's incorporation of crust punk and traditional heavy metal influence since re-signing to Peaceville a welcome rejuvenation to a band whose sound had been stagnating, or is it an insult to the legacy of a once great band? For that matter, there are some fans who consider this material to be superior to anything the band had done previously.
** There are also a handful of fans who prefer the band's TechnicalDeathMetal sound on ''Soulside Journey'' and the instrumental ''Goatlord'' to any of the band's black metal works.
** As mentioned below, the band's second stint on Peaceville certainly qualifies.
** ''Ravishing Grimness'' and especially ''Plaguewielder''. The songs on these releases are way longer than the songs on most other Darkthrone releases from the surrounding time period, and the songs are a bit more technical as well. Opinions remain divided about whether these changes were for the best.
** ''Goatlord''. Opinions are divided about whether it's better with or without the vocals (which are... unconventional, to say the least).
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks:
** Some fans' reactions to the punk-influenced sound of more recent albums.
** Fenriz's and Nocturno's reactions to most rock and metal music that has come out after the early 90s. ("It went plastic in '94")
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical: After the ''Transilvanian Hunger'' controversy led to accusations of Nazism, the band's ''Panzerfaust'' album included the statement "Darkthrone is certainly not a Nazi band nor a political band, those of you who still might think so, you can lick Mother Mary's asshole in eternity." So yeah.
