YMMV: Overkill

The band:

  • Ear Worm: "Hello! (HELLO!) Hello from the gutter!"
  • Love It or Hate It: People either think the band is an awesome Thrash Metal group with a unique vocalist, or they think they're a Metallica wannabe with Mickey Mouse on vocals.
  • Signature Song: "Rotten to the Core", "Wrecking Crew", "In Union We Stand", "Hello From the Gutter", "Fuck You", "Elimination", "Coma"... they've got a lot. "Ironbound", "Bring Me the Night", and "Come and Get It" have also fast become this in the wake of their resurgence.
  • Mondegreen: A lot of hungry people must have listened to, "Elimination" because all of lyrics are misheard as food related, for example:
    "A lemon nation, a lemon nation" is actually "Elimination, elimination"
    "Potatoes, so why not, lunch is free" is actually "Contagious, so why not, not just me"
    "A lemon ate the right, a lemon ate the wrong" is actually "Eliminate the right,eliminate the wrong"
    • There is a line in "All Over But The Shouting" that can be misheard as "I don't know! I don't know! Fight!!". It is really "animal, animal, five".
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: How some fans felt about the album "I Hear Black" and everything up to "Immortalis"
  • Tough Act to Follow: The Electric Age averts this. The general concensus is that it's not as good as Ironbound before it, but it's still very awesome.
