YMMV / The Pretty Reckless

  • Alternate Character Interpretation: "Make Me Wanna Die" could be seen as a tale about loving a vampire and wanting to become one to make the relationship work.
    • "Follow Me Down" is actually about lesbian sex. The fact that Taylor Momsen and Jenna Haze claim to have had sex with each other furthers the claim.
  • Ear Worm: "Make Me Wanna Die", "Heaven Knows", and "My Medicine".
  • Epic Riff: "He Loves You", "Everybody's Looking for Something From Me", "Goin' Down", "Since You're Gone", "Make Me Wanna Die", "Panic", and the ef·fer·ves·cent "Blender"
  • Face of the Band: Taylor is the face and creator of this particular band.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The Pretty Reckless is most successful in the UK and are mostly toured in Australia.
  • Les Yay: Utilized in their stage shows. Featured heavily (and deconstructed) in the music video for "Fucked Up World"
  • Nightmare Fuel: "Goin' Down" and "Hit Me Like A Man". "Sweet Things" becomes more and more twisted as the song goes on.
  • Signature Song: "Make Me Wanna Die" and "Heaven Knows".
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: "Since You're Gone" celebrates deleting people who you don't like from your life, who drag you down and "Light Me Up" celebrates being your own messed up self.
  • Sweet Dreams Fuel: Light Me Up is one of the most celebratory towards a good friendship and people who respect you ever.
  • Tear Jerker: "Just Tonight" and "You".
