YMMV: Angelspit
  • Anvilicious: "Girl Poison"
    • "Cubicle". We get it. Corporations and desk jobs are soul-destroying machines of doom that will suck you in, spit you out and leave you as a shell for the rest of your days. Please stop slamming us over the head with it, some of us have to work.
  • Crazy Awesome: Both of them, but especially ZooG. His exploits include:
    • Calling John Howard (Australia's former PM) a 'complete cunt' in an interview.
    • Dyeing his mohawk pink and managing to still carry it off.
    • Making a video about Angelspit's contest to find a new videographer that included him killing the old videographer and ending it with 'I need a knife, a fork and an oven built for one. Happy new fucking year!'
    • In one interview, he decided he didn't want to just stand still and talk, so he got a trolley used for pulling around equipment, got the interviewer to sit on it and randomly pulled him around while being interviewed.
    • Combichrist raised the possibility of them playing a show or two together. ZooG's response was, in essence, 'Fuck that, we'll have a rock duel to the death!' And that's what they did (though nobody died, obviously).
  • Crowning Moment Of Awesome: Pretty much everything they do can qualify as this.
    • "God made me a cannibal to fix problems like you", anyone?
    • DestroyX's life in a nutshell. She and ZooG were running the biggest zine distro in the Southern Hemisphere before they started Angelspit (and she was about 18 at the time). Since then, she's moved to London, she and ZooG have released nine CD's in eight or so years, she started her own makeup and fashion line, A is for Arsenic, and she somehow balances tours, music and design all at once. The woman's a bloody genius.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: From the development diary for "Hot Mess": "I recorded the vocals while I was drunk. It only took me two takes… because I think I passed out."
    • ZooG and Brian from the Gothsicles created 'Hardcore Pong', a series that's meant to be about video games, but is instead the two of them getting drunk and rambling about everything. Hilarity Ensues again and again and again.
  • Ear Worm: This troper has no idea how they do it, but just about every song Angelspit has ever done is one of these. Special mentions go to:
    • "Vena cava! Heart starter! The doctor is IN! SANE!"
    • "Crash dolly, burn with me. Like on TV. Get dirty, boy on me. So lust worthy."
    • "Your body, in my mouth! Devilicious!"
    • "This time, you're 100% FUCKED!""
    • "I'm feeling, (lickin', suckin', fuckin') I'm feeling... juicy."
    • "Wreak havoc right! Now! Right! Now! Riot! Now! Wreak havoc right! Now! Right! Now! Riot! Now! Unleash hell!"
    • "I was on the lookout for the wolf, the wolf, the wolf, the wolf, I was on the lookout for the, I was on the lookout for the wolf, the wolf, the wolf, the wolf, I was on the lookout..."
    • "Crash made! Built to fade! Fuck! The! Revolution!"
    • "Grind, head down, tail up, define your purpose, till you bleed and you are raw to the bone."
    • "I gave birth to the 21st century!" and "All the way, all the way, all the way to twenty6hundred!"
    • Even the remixes are like this. "Paradise breeds, paradise breeds, paradise breeds, paradise breeds, paradise breeds..."
    • "One! Two three five eight, who do we decapitate?"
    • "Defibrillator... CLEAR!"
    • "I like to collect... pretty dead boys! I like to make... pretty dead boys!"
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: "Defibrillator", from Hello My Name Is. It's become an insanely popular song, mainly because it manages to combine two genres nobody in their right mind would put together (pop and industrial) and it works.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The 'buy me a diamond pony' line from "Defibrillator" became this to all the Angelspit-loving Borderlands 2 fans out there.
  • It's Popular, Now It Sucks: "A La Mode, A La Mort" and "Channel Hell" both protest against the appropriation of alternative styles by the mainstream.
  • Narm Charm: "Daddy... buy me... a pixel... pony."
  • Nightmare Fuel: The video for "Vena Cava", the casual references to cannibalism, torture and murder...
    • "Elixir" is a Take That to the beauty industry. Throughout the song, one can hear screaming at certain points- not loud screaming, but someone screaming in pain. Once one connects this with the lyrics, which reference plastic surgery and painful beauty treatments... yeah.
    • "Grind" has elements of this- the lyrics are bloody creepy, and DestroyX's voice sounds quite robotic, almost like GLaDOS as she sings it.
    • The "Vena Cava" video.
    • Apparently, the video for "Toxic Girl" will be this. It's been described as a very intense mix of porn and torture. This cannot end well.
  • Painful Rhyme: From "Juicy": "Spin a dice and it's Vegas rigged/a glass full of conobine, you're off your head."
    • From "Making Money": "Making money/All things shiny".
      • From "Vena Cava": "Vena cava/heart starter".
    • From "100%": "Powdered God in a bag from the Vatican/I want you to fuck off as hard as you can."
  • Signature Song: "100%" or "Vena Cava".
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: "Girl Poison" is a song about how young girls are encountering sexuality and losing their innocence at ridiculously young ages because that is what society/the media want, which they shouldn't be forced to.
  • Squick: Hentai rampage???
  • What The Hell, Costuming Department?: ZooG's apron... skirt... thing in the video for "Sleep Now".
