YMMV: The Used
  • Ear Worm: "The Taste Of Ink", "Pretty Handsome Awkward", and "I'm A Fake" are good examples.
    • PARALYZED BY THE SAME OLD ANTICS, BACK AND FORTH LIKE A WALKING SPASTIC...
    • A lie is a lie, crossed hearts and hopes to die...
    • "The Bird and the Worm" and "I Come Alive"
  • Face of the Band: Bert.
  • Fandom Rivalry: Between some Used fans and members of the MCRmy who really took the whole "Bert and Gerard aren't friends anymore" thing to heart.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The music video for "The Bird And The Worm", though the song on its own can be unnerving.
  • Signature Song: "I Caught Fire", "The Bird And The Worm", "All That I've Got" or "Burning Down the House".
  • Tear Jerker: "Hard To Say".
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: The reaction among a few to Vulnerable, which utilizes more electronic elements and has inspired some fans (or at least, a very vocal minority) to think the band is abandoning their roots. Others love their ultra-Ear Worm-y songs like "I Come Alive" and "Hands and Faces".
  • True Art Is Angsty: The majority of their songs are like this, but Artwork gets special mention. One of the album's themes was "coming to grips with how much you really hate yourself". It deals with themes like grief and atheism.
