Voltaire The Performer

In Aurelio Voltaire's song "The Vampire Club" he talks about someone named Missy "losing a fang." Come 14 years later there would be a (part)vampire character named Missi animated to some of his songs!
  • Jerkass Woobie: Satan is portrayed as this in "Almost Human".
  • Misattributed Song: A lot of people think Voltaire made the song "If I Only Were a Goth", but the song was actually made by the band ThouShaltNot. Granted, the singer does sound similar.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: While he did do a song called "BRAINS!" for The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, which airs on Cartoon Network, that is kid-friendly, his other songs, most notably "Cantina" and Zombie Prostitute, are not. Voltaire eventually did release a children's album, though that one is the opposite trope as it deals with subjects like cannibalism. Voltaire has stated that the album is specifically for creepy kids.
  • The Woobie: The titular character of "The Beast of Pirate Bay" turns out to be this.
    • Voltaire HIMSELF. He lost his father at a young age, was sexually abused by a family friend from infancy to when he was a teenager, was abused physically and emotionally by his stepfather, lost a girlfriend to suicide, was bullied relentlessly growing up and has struggled with depression because of all of this.
