- Covered Up: Their cover of "Fuck You" is far more famous than the original.
- Ear Worm: "Hello! (HELLO!) Hello from the gutter!"
- "We don't care what you say, FUCK YOU!"
- Signature Song: "Rotten to the Core", "Elimination", "Hello from the Gutter", and "Fuck You".
- They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: How some fans felt about the album I Hear Black and everything up to Immortalis (with the exception of Killbox 13).
- Tough Act to Follow: The Electric Age averts this. The general consensus is that it's not as good as Ironbound before it, but it's still very awesome. Kinda played straight with White Devil Armory; while it's not hated by any means and is generally viewed as a perfectly good album, it's also generally regarded as being decidedly inferior to the preceding two.
- Win Back the Crowd: Ironbound won them back a lot of fans who had given up on them after a long string of polarizing albums. Killbox 13 was a minor example as it was a return to their original sound exhibited on their debut album, Feel the Fire.
