* MisogynySong: On the surface, "Girls and Boys" sounds like one, but the outro of this song reveals what the band really mean: Superficial relationships between gold digging girs and trust fund boys that won't do good to any party involved.

Added DiffLines:

* ConceptAlbum: ''The Chronicles of Life and Death'' focused on the idea of mortality, with the songs being arranged in such a manner that they play out like a life story.


Added DiffLines:

* LongRunnerLineUp:
** Joel, Benji, Billy & Paul are a Type-1, having been in the band since high school.
** Joel, Benji, Billy, Paul & Dean are a Type-5; with Dean joining the band in 2005, and the line-up remaining to date with a 4 year hiatus covering 2011 to 2015.


Added DiffLines:

* MoodWhiplash: Several times on ''The Young and the Hopeless''.
** The middle of the album bounces around between an upbeat pop song (“Girls & Boys”), an angry MurderBallad (“My Blood Valentine”), an anti-suicide anthem (“Hold On”), back to upbeat pop (“Riot Girl”), and finally, a somber song about trying to hold on to a fractured relationship (“Say Anything”).
** “Emotionless”, the heartbreaking open letter to the twins’ DisappearedDad is sandwiched between “[[DearNegativeReader The Young and the Hopeless]]” and “[[DareToBeBadass Movin’ On]]”


* FiveManBand:

to:

* FiveManBand:FirstWorldProblems: "Lifestyles of The Rich and Famous."
* FiveManBand


* TakeThat: "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" is, at the title suggests, targeted at wealthy celebrities and their FirstWorldProblems. The second verse specifically calls out O.J. Simpson and his lawyer Johnnie Cochran, as well as then-mayor of Washington D.C. (where the band hails from) Marion Barry, respectively.
-->"Did you know, when you were famous, you could kill your wife//
And there's no such thing as 25 to life//
As long as you got the cash to pay for Cochran?//
And did you know, when you were caught and you were smoking crack//
UsefulNotes/McDonalds wouldn't even wanna take you back?//
