* TheChewToy: They were this for years from both ends, when this [[https://www.pinterest.com/pin/144255994286428501/ church]] took aim. One of the correspondents of Tourniquet took direct aim at this church in 2014; and rebuked them twice first with his original account in Italian then the second time in English. Especially when Sweet is a widower in the late 2000s [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/UnacceptableTargets acceptable target]]; in [[https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/34631313/kyle-rae-sweet 2009]] he saw the GriefSong invoked.

* ButtMonkey: When seen in the underground as they got heckled playing with Anthrax in the 1980s then heckled harder by the rest of the spectrum until the 2000s. When ''The Covering'' emerged they were VindicatedByHistory as critics were rethinking what they were about; though each member will be their own ButtMonkey as they are stealth snarkers. Sweet with the song ''Radio'' in his solo career was giving the gift that kept on giving making a ButtMonkey [[http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/michael-sweet-says-half-of-stories-about-motley-crues-controversial-past-are-b-s/ out of their contemporaries]] who would do country after playing the deadhorsegenre.

** First Air Raid Era Iron Maiden --[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qx-SsPsOrVA "The Trooper"]] Sweet comments on [[http://bravewords.com/news/stryper-frontman-michael-sweet-on-the-covering-vocally-i-had-a-bit-of-difficulty-with-the-trooper-that-one-was-a-butt-kicker doing this one]]. He found it tough to pull off but TookALevelInBadass when some researched the insight behind the origins of ''The Trooper'' as the poem referenced Psalm 23 in passing. Some took an InternetBackdraft in response to this as the arguments were rekindled about Iron Maiden being 'Satanic.' Covering this one they were FlippingTheBird to [[http://www.av1611.org/othpubl.html#Crock this self-righteous a-hole]]. Some fans suggested they'd cover [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Number_of_the_Beast_(song) The Number of The Beast]] with the heavy metal pastor doing the spoken intro with a modern translation of the Bible or [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holy_Smoke_(song) Holy Smoke]] complete with the s-strike.

TakeThat! For the first time they did in ''Fallen'' they took aim at how Christians were often portrayed. This was the first time they [[http://www.songfacts.com/blog/writing/jesus_thinks_you_re_a_jerk_rock_vs_televangelists/ took aim in a track]]. ThrashMetal was better known for taking the time honored barb at Televangelists as Metallica, IcedEarth, Anthrax, and Slayer took the darkest barbs at them. FireFlight even took a barb at Televangelists. [[https://youtu.be/HVXjDNDlgiU Big Screen Lies]] was that barb.
