Tropes displayed by Hatebreed:

  • Alliterative Name: Jamey Jasta. Averted with his real name.note 
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: Jamey Jasta.
  • Cover Album: This is what For the Lions is.
  • Crowd Song: "I Will Be Heard," which the band often uses to close out concerts. Even after hours of moshing and screaming, a clear majority of the crowd will join in.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: Satisfaction Is the Death of Desire had a more stereotypical hardcore sound that sounded nothing like their material after it.
  • Lead Bassist: Chris Beattie is a type C, being the other original member.
  • Lyrical Dissonance: Considering the genre they are in, a lot of their music sounds angry, but if you take a look at the lyrics, quite a few of their songs are explicitly about, or touch upon the themes of, empowerment, togetherness, being a better person in the face of great trials, not letting the past define you, and other generally positive messages.
