* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: "Hard Rock Hallelujah", which broke the record at Eurovision.
** Their performance and subsequent first place at the EurovisionSongContest 2006 are also a CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
* FandomRivalry: With Music/{{GWAR}}. Mostly one sided actually - GWAR fans tend to despise Lordi for poorly articulated reasons, Lordi fans either enjoy or don't care one way or another about GWAR.
* ItsPopularNowItSucks: While the Eurovision victory brought them incredible fame and success, it also alienated some of the old, "hardcore" fandom. Their later album sales in Finland (Babez for Breakfast sold remarkably less compared to its predecessor Deadache) may have also suffered from this after the biggest hype was over.

* NightmareFuel: Their make up makes them look like friggin demons.

* SignatureSong: "Would You Love a Monsterman", "Devil is a Loser" and "Hard Rock Hallelujah".
* VindicatedByHistory: Some Finnish people thought having them as their entry in the EurovisionSongContest would be a national embarrasment. They ended up winning it.
