They don't have an exact genre. They normally do rock but I've heard some songs by them that don't fit the genre.
Their lyrics are meaningful.
"If I told you what I was/ would you turn your back on me? / and if I seemed dangerous/ would you be scared? " And then later in the song "I'm only a man with a candle to guide me/ I'm taking a stand to escape what's inside me/ a monster, a monster, I've turned into a monster" - Monster
"It's who we are/ doesn't matter if we've gone too far/ doesn't matter if its all okay/ doesn't matter if its not our day" - who we are
"With our backs to the wall/ darkness will fall/ we never quite thought we could lose it all" - Ready Aim Fire
And they have a song for every mood. Radioactive is one of their most popular songs and it's very... Angry/determined sounding.
I bet my life is regretful.
On top of the world is pure happiness there's no other description.
Their songs all have morals.
