  • I would do anything for you. Kill anyone for you
  • Let's face it, there's not a single thing they've done that ISN'T an ear worm.


  • Base Breaker/ Broken Base: Year of the Black Rainbow, musically and both lyrically/story wise, is either one of Coheed's best albums, or one of their worst. The elitist fan base on Cobalt And Calcium doesn't help matters,
  • Crowning Momentof Heartwarming: '2's My Favorite 1. "I embrace your defects."
    • ''Atlas'', the song Claudio wrote for his son.
  • Epic Riff: "Welcome Home."
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Nearly every top comment on any Coheed and Cambria Youtube video will be about Claudio's hair.
  • Face of the Band: Claudio Sanchez, singer/guitarist, and he also writes the comics the band's songs are based on (and thus the lyrics). His memorable physical appearance helps too.
  • Hell Is That Noise: The end of Three Evils, and by extension, the reversed version of the same noises (minus the scream) in A Favor House Atlantic comes to mind.
  • Internet Backdraft: Over whether they count as Emo or not. It's best not to bring it up.
  • Lyrical Dissonance: Wake Up: "I'll do anything for you, kill anyone for you..."
    • "Number City" is a danceable ska-influenced song about Sirius' wife dying in a car crash.
  • Magnum Opus: In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 is their best known, most acclaimed, and best-selling album. It's been called one of these for the entire Prog Metal Genre.
  • Narm: The Word Salad Lyrics can't be taken seriously every moment.
    • Also because it's easy to mishear the lyrics, even causing mild Memetic Mutation in the fandom with some common or hilarious ones (Most famously "Barking Apple of Doom" in Welcome Home and "Should the Iron Negro Hungry" in In Keeping Secrets of a Silent Earth: 3.)
    • There's also the fact that the Writing Writer is being told to kill off characters by a talking bicycle.
  • Tear Jerker: Many:
    • The song "Time Consumer", when you realize it's about two parents being forced to kill their children.
    • During Coheed and Cambria's rampage throughout the ship Gloria vel Vessa, they encounter numerous soldiers who plead for their lives, mentioning that they have families and kids to take care of. Considering what General Mayo Deftinwulf forced Coh and Cam to do, this is not a good idea.
    • The dialogue between Sirius Amory and The Allmother at the end of "The Dark Side of Me" Allmother: "I am not capable of comprehending human rationale. Sirius, is this what love is?" (Dramatic Pause) Sirius: "Yes."
    • The climax of the song "Gravity's Union" is extraordinarily heartbreaking. Sirius believes that the doctors chose to save him and not his pregnant wife (Therefore "Let the wrong one in")
