Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Buck Tick
Awesome Music: With such a varied music output, most of it at fairly high quality, there's likely a little bit of Buck-Tick for everybody.
Everyone Is Jesus in Purgatory: Interpretations of lyrics can be surprisingly variable, both in Japanese and when translated. Some sections of fandom seem to like to downplay the suggestive content, while others seem to be able to find it in everything. The truth is, as usual, probably somewhere in between.
Ho Yay: Atsushi's lyrics often go in this direction, as do Imai's. Then of course there's Atsushi humping everyone onstage. Then of course there's the infamous photoshoot of Atsushi and Yoshiki with Atsushi as Yoshiki's dominant...
They Changed It, Now It Sucks: Averted. Apart from a minor fuss back in the days of "Taboo", when the band first acknowledged their darker musical roots, BUCK-TICK's fanbase seem positively welcoming of the continued Genre Shift that characterises their work. So what if you don't like their current direction? There'll probably be a new one next time, and everyone seems to have a different favourite. ...Though Sakurai's attempt at facial hair didn't go over quite so well.
"Baudelaire Won't Let Me Sleep" appears to be a more modern take on being high on... something.
WTH, Costuming Department?: Usually directed at Imai, though Sakurai is not immune to this (wedding cake-ish coats and beige pleather manskirts spring to mind), and most of the rest of the band have also had moments in the WTH spotlight.
