* '''{{Anvilicious}}''': So you may be wondering why the trope name is in bold. Well, because they write very straight-to-the-point lyrics, probably the most greenhouse lyrics in all of metal, on par with [[Music/{{Gojira}} a French tech-death band]].
** SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped.
* BaseBreaker - Mainly the 'alternative' albums, like ''Diatribes'' and ''Inside the Torn Apart''.
* CrowningMomentOfFunny - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybGOT4d2Hs8 "You Suffer".]] Come on, I bet you laughed the first time you heard it!
* HilariousInHindsight - When JimCarrey professed [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9rdQdz7WRA his love for the band]] on The Arsenio Hall Show, he claimed "someday this guy's gonna wanna slow down and do some duets." Then Lee Dorian formed Music/{{Cathedral}}, which indeed slowed down and occasionally featured duets.
* LoveItOrHateIt - As with all grindcore, really, but Napalm Death are the most visible band of the genre, so they get more focus than the others.
* MagnumOpus: ''From Enslavement to Obliteration'', to the point it gave the name to an actual music label based on extreme metal.
** ''Scum'' is another contender, and is definitely the album most commonly associated with the band.
** ''Harmony Corruption'' is generally considered to be the best of their deathgrind albums, and along with albums by Repulsion, Carcass and Terrorizer helped shape the the more metallic grindcore sound.
* SignatureSong: "You Suffer (But Why)," if only because it's The Guinness World Record holder [[MinisculeRocking for shortest song]]. "Scum" is probably their most well known song and is probably what most fans of the band think when they hear someone mention Napalm Death or even grindcore in general.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: While the Napalm Death fanbase is divided into people who prefer their more hardcore leaning grind albums, people who prefer their more metal albums, and people who like both eras, neither of them had a positive reaction to their more {{Industrial}}/GrooveMetal-tinged late 90s albums starting with ''Diatribes''.
