YMMV / Lamb of God

Go To

  • Black Sheep Hit: Possibly "Laid to Rest."
    • In a sense, "Overlord" and "The Duke". They are the only two Lamb of God songs to chart on Mainstream Rock, and both are the only two songs in their catalog that feature clean singing.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: It certainly helps that the first name they went under was Burn The Priest.
  • Ear Worm: "Black Label" WILL GET STUCK IN YOUR HEAD.
  • Epic Riff: "Laid to Rest", "Redneck", "Omerta", "In Your Words", "Ghost Walking", "Bury Me Under The Sun"... quite a few, as you can tell.

  • Signature Song: "Black Label", "Laid to Rest", "Redneck".
  • Song Association:
    • More specifically, the Guitar Hero Effect. Many people only know Lamb of God through the appearance of "Laid to Rest" in both Guitar Hero 2 and Guitar Hero: Smash Hits (the original version, as with "Killing in the Name"). You can't really blame the people playing the game for wanting to hear the real thing (which would also appear as downloadable content for the Rock Band games).
    • There's also the case of others who were introduced to the band with "Black Label"'s inclusion in Tony Hawk's Underground 2, though in a minor scale than "Laid to Rest".
    • As does those who heard "11th Hour" on the soundtrack for Freddy vs. Jason soundtrack.
    • Others instead might know them because of their appearance in Saints Row 2 with "Redneck".
    • Or from the song's other video game appearance in NFL Street 3.
  • Tear Jerker:
    • "King Me" off of "Resolution", if the dark depressing lyrics, the haunting One-Woman Wail in the background or Randy's horrific screams of rage and insanity don't get to you, especially at the end, don't know what will. It's basically their "Floods".
    • Can also double as some good Nightmare Fuel.
    • Parts of 'As the Palaces Burn' (the documentary dealing with the manslaughter case against Randy) can qualify, especially the moment when John, while discussing Daniel (the fan who died), starts tearing up. He's not sobbing or anything, but the way his voice cracks makes you realise he's not just putting it on for the camera; he's genuinely remorseful about Daniel's death.
