Type O Negative have been one of my favorite bands for nearly half my life. They were the soundtrack for some pivotal moments in my adolescence, and I’ve held them near and dear to my heart into my adulthood. But after some time away, revisiting their music in 2021 revealed some ugly sides to their lyrical content that gave me pause. So I conducted an in-depth, critical review of my relationship to their discography to see if I could reconcile my lifelong appreciation for them with some of their more problematic tendencies.
