YMMV / Periphery

  • Ambiguously Brown: Misha. He plays this for laughs, often referring to his ethnicity as being "brown".
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The 50s-esque announcer introducing the band members at the end of "Icarus Lives!"
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Much of their debut album, but Letter Experiment takes the cake with a truly epic chorus capped off by Bulb's most heartfelt lead guitar work to date.
    • If we're honest, then every album is full of these. Just listen to the outdo of Omega. So.Fucking.Epic
  • Ear Worm: "I'm neither angel nor a demonspawn..."
  • Epic Riff: EVERYTHING! Though, special mention to, "Icarus Lives," "The Bad Thing," "Make Total Destroy," "All New Materials," and "Jetpack Was Yes."
  • Face of the Band: Guitarist/producer/programmer/songwriter Bulb, who formed the band and is undoubtedly one of the most iconic musicians of the djent scene.
    • Matt Halpern is a close second, particularly for his work with Animals as Leaders and helping to found Bandhappy.
  • Replacement Scrappy: As noted on the main page, Spencer Sotelo has the lion's share of Hatedom directed towards him. A small contingent also worried about Mark Holcomb joining the band, especially given the release of "Passenger", worried that they'd have to sit through rehashes of Haunted Shores.
  • Signature Song: "Icarus Lives"; or "Alpha" to newer fans.
