Tropes associated with Hawthorne Heights

  • Author Existence Failure: Casey
  • Concept Album: "If Only You Were Lonely" tells the story of a young couple forcibly separated by the man's family moving away.
  • Literary Allusion Name: Word of God says that the name "Hawthorne Heights" is a reference to author Nathaniel Hawthorne.
  • Insult Backfire: The song "Where Can I Stab Myself In The Ears?" got it's name from a listener's negative comment about it.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: In "Decembers", the singer describes his time apart from the woman he loves as "a self-inflicted coma."
  • Lyrical Dissonance: "Light Sleeper" is a very catchy song...about being afraid of what's waiting for you in your nightmares.
  • Metal Scream: It was Casey Calvert's specialty and a noteworthy feature of many of the group's hits. Sadly, he's now doing it in rock 'n' roll heaven.
  • Signature Song: "Saying Sorry" from If Only You Were Lonely.
    • "Ohio Is For Lovers" is another candidate, and is probably their best known song.
