YMMV: All Time Low
  • Ear Worm: Many. "Dear Maria, Count Me In" is a notable example.
  • Ho Yay: Alex Gaskarth and Jack Barakat.
    • To the point of kissing, sitting on each others lap during interviews, sleeping in the same bed, and Jack tackling and humping Alex onstage.
    • "You can't have swag unless you're me. Assuming SWAG stands for Sex With Alex Gaskarth."
  • Shipping: Among the most contested shippings of band members and others include "Jalex" (Jack/Alex) and "Taylex" (Tay Jardine/Alex).
  • Tear Jerker: Quite a few. First off, there's the song Lullabies as well - which is about lead singer Alex Gaskarth's brother Tom, who may or may not have committed suicide. Also, its unreleased counterparts, Light the Way and We All Fall Down - which are all the same thing. Remembering Sunday is another, which is supposedly about a girl Alex fell in love with after a one-night stand, however, when he tried to find her again she had disappeared. Then there's Memories That Fade Like Photographs which is about claiming to never forget the memories of a past romance despite those memories being painful and begging the other person to do the same. Basically, if it's a slow song, you can guarantee it's going to be sad in some way.
    • Off of Dirty Work we have "Daydream Away" which would seem to be about reminiscing about the guy's previous relationships/past antics. Also "Guts" which itself is not entirely slow but it has that ballad feeling.
    • Also off Dirty Work, we have Return The Favor, which is about giving everything in a relationship and getting nothing in return as well as No Idea, which is a song about liking somebody who has no idea. Also, Get Down On Your Knees And Tell Me You Love me conveys a relatively sad message, despite how catchy and upbeat the song is.
    • "Remembering Sunday" is possibly the most heartbreaking song ever. May be due to the possibility of the alleged girl being interpreted to have committed suicide."Therapy" counts as this too. And not to mention "Lullabies"
      • "Remembering Sunday" isn't about a girl committing suicide. Alex stated it's about a girl going away on a plane. Still a Tear Jerker, though.
    • "Weightless" is pretty damn sad, seeing as it talks about feeling stuck in a routine and waiting on things to change, and doing stupid things to feel alive
  • They Copied It, Now It Sucks: They've been accused of ripping off Fall Out Boy, as is the common accusation of any band even remotely similar to them. Never mind the fact that they were formed before Fall Out Boy was popular and started as a blink-182 cover band. Fall Out Boy themselves don't seem to find the comparison fair, considering they're good friends with All Time Low, brought them on tour with them and Pete Wentz regrets not having his record label sign them when he had the chance.
  • Win Back the Crowd: Most fans considered Dirty Work to be a sub-par album, and even the band has said that it didn't work the way they wanted it to. But everybody considered Don't Panic better.
