YMMV / Blue Stahli

Go To

  • Awesome Music:
    • His entire first vocal album, with classics like "Takedown," "Scrape," "Kill Me Every Time," "Anti You," "Doubt," and "Corner".
    • His later album, The Devil, which gave us (among others) "Not Over Till We Say So", "Down In Flames", "Enemy", "Ready Aim Fire", "Rockstar", "Shoot Em Up", "The Devil", and "Demon".
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: At around 4:08 of the official music video for "ULTRAnumb", the video cuts to Bret in a Mexican restaurant, dressed in mariachi garb and wielding a trumpet, accompanied by two other men in mariachi garb. All of them are standing in front of Klayton, wearing sunglasses and a fake moustache, and a woman in a black dress. As soon as Bret is ready to play the trumpet, the video cuts back to a bloodsoaked Bret playing the guitar and the scene is never mentioned again.

  • Creepy Awesome: He may be scary as hell, but, if anything, his creepiness just makes him cooler.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: Many of his jokes in his Ask Blue Stahli and Stahlivision videos.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: He is, by far, the most famous member of the FiXT crew besides Klayton himself.
  • Epic Riff: The guitar on "ULTRAnumb".
    • Just about everything on The Devil, but special mentions go to "Not Over Til We Say So", "Down In Flames", "Rockstar", & "Shoot Em Up".
  • Nightmare Fuel: A lot of the answers he gives on Ask Blue Stahli. Such as, "I watch you while you sleep," to, "I don't sleep, I just stare at a corner and be disturbing."
    • These photos come to mind.
    • After the photo shoot for the debut album, Bret ended up peeling off all the paint himself... apparently shredding his skin in the process.
    • Oh, and the photos themselves.
    • He often hides little clips at the end of each video. Some of them are a healthy dose of this.
    • The music video for, "ULTRAnumb".
    • The lyrics for "Shoot Em Up", which are about someone (most likely a reporter) enticing someone to commit a shooting just to boost ratings for their news outlet.

    • The verses of "Armageddon", it really doesn't help that they're mostly growled.
    I am the feast... of famine thirst...
    • "Demon". If the actual lyrics don't creep you out much, then the weird distorted noises at the end definitely will.
    "In my deep down soul, I am flies and blood..."
  • Signature Song: "ULTRAnumb"
  • Tear Jerker: His song, "Throw Away," which is Lighter and Softer than most of his other songs, but the lyrics are way more depressing sounding like a parent trying to talk to their suicidal child.

How well does it match the trope?
