Added DiffLines:

* LastNoteNightmare: "Down to Hell", a rather straightforward rock track, ends with 20 seconds worth of pure audio assault that only could come out of the depths of hell. Fits the theme of the song, huh?

Added DiffLines:

** "Undivided" has never been confirmed, but is widely considered to be one Ben wrote about Danny. The spoken word ran by Ben in the middle of the song is outright vicious.


* {{Emo Teen}}: A big part of their early image (their first album even featured the lead singer of Alesana.) As of ''Reckless & Relentless'' they've ditched it for a drunken, hedonistic party image, with beards, unkempt clothing and hair, and leather clothes.
* {{The Hedonist}}: Danny Worsnop.
* {{Hollywood Tone Deaf}}: For a while, Worsnop became notorious for his poor vocal abilities during live performances, mostly due to him being intoxicated during said performances. His ability to perform live has improved over time, however.

* {{New Sound Album}}: ''From Death to Destiny'' brought in more HardRock influences, largely due to Danny growing sick of metalcore. After he left and Denis replaced him, ''The Black'' featured more metalcore and electronic influences.

* TakeThat: Danny clearly didn't think much of Denis taking his spot. At the time he filed a legal injunction to stop them from using his backing vocal tracks live and accused him of miming[[note]]Being a band with only one backing vocalist, Asking Alexandria has always used pre recorded backing vocals to pad their sound.

Also, Danny has never sung a single song from Denis' album since his return.


* {{Vocal Evolution}}: Worsnop's vocals have changed dramatically due to heavy drug and alcohol consumption, along with a torn vocal cord in 2012. When they first came out he had a very wide range and a high pitched voice that resembled a British Anthony Green or Craig Owens. Now his voice is much rougher and lower pitched. In fact he can barely sing "Not the American Average" anymore.

* {{Alcohol-Induced Idiocy}}: During a live performance in Seattle in 2011, Danny Worsnop appeared on stage barely sober enough to stand, let alone perform, and behaved quite belligerently towards the audience. He was eventually escorted offstage mid-set, prompting the band to call members of the audience up to the stage to fill in for Worsnop so they could finish their set.
