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.
Narm: Some of their lyrics cross the line of badassery into just plain corny. In particular is "I'LL SLAP YOU SO FUCKING HARD YOU'LL FEEL LIKE YOU JUST KISSED A FREIGHT TRAIN" from War Is The Answer. But...
Narm Charm: It's part of their appeal to some fans.
Their cover of "Mama Said Knock You Out" is quite narmy. The original works as a hip hop number, but having the song in a metal style with growled vocals is unintentionally hilarious.
"Far From Home". It appears to be told from the perspective of a weary soldier.
"Remember Everything". It's a song about singer Ivan Moody's strained relationship with his parents
"Coming Down". It's a song about being bullied and feeling suicidal. The video for the song is especially effective.
"Battle Born," which was written as a response to the fact the band members had been touring almost non-stop for 2 years, barely getting a break to see their families and leaving them mentally and physically exhausted. The lyrics play out like someone who's been through so much hardship that they feel like their losing their heart and becoming emotionally distant to the world. Even some of the band's detractors are known to say that this song at least is "not bad."
The Scrappy: They have quite a few detractors, mainly due to their lyrics.
One person put their lyrics like this: "It's like Lil Wayne trying to write a metal song."
