YMMV: Meshuggah
  • Base Breaker: Meshuggah's music. Lets just leave it at that.
    • The debate between whether the original or reissue versions of Nothing are better than the other.
    • The bigger debate surrounding whether they influenced djent or not, again leave it at that.
  • Creepy Awesome: Is their music bizarre and terrifying? Yes, but is it awesome? Also yes.
    • The dissonant guitar riff just before the Dark Ambient/Drone section in the song, "Elastic," is practically hell in a guitar riff, but damn does it sound good.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome - Metal fans with a keen on technical stuff adore this band. "I", "New Millennium Cyanide Christ", "Bleed", etc....
    • Epic Riff: Every single one. The ones from "Demiurge", off the Koloss album, in particular, are easily memorable.
  • Face of the Band: Arguably either Fredrik or Tomas. Jens is also a good contender.
  • Fandom Rivalry: With Gojira, although most would say it's a Friendly Rivalry.
  • Growing the Beard: Many fans consider their first album to be little more than a dirtier version of Metallica and see Destroy Erase Improve the album when they really came into their own.
  • Magnum Opus: Many, if not most fans say obZen. Koloss, with its organic feel and dense, epic sound, is a close second. Chaosphere is in third, as it is the album that solidified the band's current sound.
  • Memetic Mutation: The face Jens makes has been coined the, "Meshuggah Face."
  • Mondegreen: I. LIKE. JUICE!! from "Rational Gaze"
    I love porno, look at me get hard, vacuum up, that shit, celery, tin Letters
    I rearrange my pathetic tissue, my insides, I replace, SIAMESE PORN
    I eradicate the pre-pubescent me, elevate me to ohio. You mad Thor?
    the carrot curse I am, made into a word called, "fee-fala-feefa-yo-rah"
    Sam will take off the shorts, God replace my throat with farts
    AN OREO!! Beating offs like jabbing glass into my body
    RAPE!
  • Nightmare Fuel - They have their own page.
    • The video for "Bleed".
    • The lyrics to a lot of their songs are also terrifying, particularly the lyrics to "In Death - Is Death" and "New Millennium Cyanide Christ."
  • Seinfeld Is Unfunny: Metal blog Metal Sucks is already speculating that Koloss, in the post-djent metal scene will suffer from this. It did suffer from some backlash but was generally praised by both fans and critics.
  • Signature Song: "New Millennium Cyanide Christ" and/or "Bleed".
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: Some older fans didn't really like the post-Chaosphere releases, as they felt that the band lost much of their musical aggression with their greater focus on slower, Pantera-esque tracks. Nothing and Catch Thirtythree, in particular, get hit by this sentiment the most.
