YMMV / This Is War

Go To

  • Awesome Music: "Kings and Queens" seems to be the universally agreed Signature Song. It gets used in every trailer in the vein of "If I had a Heart" or "Adagio and D" simply because it's that good.
  • Best Known for the Fanservice: The NSFW "Hurricane" music video.
  • Memetic Mutation: "This is War" is the fandom anthem for everything ever. So it has a tendency for several AMVs.
    • "Kings and Queens" is in almost every trailer that needs badass music.
  • Moment of Awesome: The fact that despite bankruptcy, the lawsuits, and the constant strife behind the scenes, the album was still released makes the whole piece a Moment of Awesome in and of itself.
    • EMI themselves disbanded after this. Most of it can be attributed to 30 Seconds to Mars' valiance.

  • Overshadowed by Controversy: Pleasantly averted. More people are happy the album exists without even being aware of the legal troubles.
  • Tear Jerker: The ending of Artifact showing the band on tour.
    • The remaining fact that even though the album sold well, the band remains broke and still makes no money from albums.
