* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Does the "friend" from "Happy Birthday" actually exist, or is he just the hallucinatory manifestation of the speaker's [[AxCrazy homicidal]] [[KnifeNut urges]]?
** "Kill the Lights:" Deeply cynical song about how fairy tales are all fake, but we have to pretend that they're real so we don't realise how depressing our world really is and commit suicide, or a simple breakup song comparing the story of two lovers to fairy tales and how it didn't work out, unlike the tales?
* CrazyAwesome: Rainbow.
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Hell hath no fury like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMpyK39KMOY a pissed-off Chibi]].
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6PTq9a8WgYI This video]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mDBD6kfhw8 Chibi tries to convince an interviewer to take up knitting]].
** The scene in the video for "Looking Glass" where Chibi leads 6 to the teacher -- 6 is shuffling down the hallway while the band walk around her, trashing the corridor -- it's hilarious, really.
*** Especially when you know that a fan who'd played an extra in the video explained that the masks were almost impossible to see through, and thus poor 6 can't see a thing.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Just about every damn song.
** Subjective of course but: "Red Stars" for the ethereal vocals and {{epic riff}}, "Holiday" for the tune, "Remember Me" for the [[TearJerker poignancy]], "Blue" for the epic {{mood whiplash}}, and "Looking Glass" for being [[EarWorm so damn catchy]].
** Have VideoGame/{{Audiosurf}}? Have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqjsgSyx7y8 Nowhere]]? Play them together, the result is a bit [[strike:[[SurpriseDifficulty unexpected]]]] awesome.
** "And for the first time, she feels, just... ''fine''." Cue the epic ending.
* EarWorm: Once you hear the opening riff to "Happy Birthday," you know you'll be hearing it in your head for days to come...
** "Red" is ''so'' hard to get out of your head. Damn it!
* EpicRiff: "Nothing and Nowhere," "To Die For," "Blue," "The Dream," "Video Kid," "Science," "Always," "In the Dark," "Sleepwalking," "Sideways," "Two Hearts," "Pale"... the list goes on.
* FaceOfTheBand: Chibi.
* FanCommunityNickname: 'Violet Prisoners' or 'Murder Tramps'.
* FandomBerserkButton: Bringing up Music/BlackVeilBrides.
** Also, if you know the band's real names, don't post them in public. The fans will ''not'' be amused.
* FandomRivalry: The Violet Prisoners versus the [[Music/BlackVeilBrides BVB Army]].
* FridgeBrilliance: This Troper always felt that the vocal part of "Nevermind" ended rather abruptly, as if it needed another verse and chorus instead of the last instrumental part. Then they realised the last line of the song is "Has left me nothing kind to say." If you've got nothing kind to say, don't say anything at all!
* MemeticMolester: The teacher in "Looking Glass."
* MemeticMutation: Ending sentences with [[Music/BlackVeilBrides 'And if you don't like it, fuck you!']] used to be a meme on their forum.
* NightmareFuel: "Blue" and "Looking Glass."
** TBM's NightmareFuel is intensified by the fact that occasionally, Chibi sounds like a prepubescent girl. With songs like "Under the Stairs" and "Blue," that freaks a lot of people out and gives the songs a very nasty edge.
* SignatureSong: "Happy Birthday" or "Blue."
* TearJerker: "To Die For."
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: The "Blue" video.
