  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Lostprophets is an Alternative Rock band from Wales. While they started as mostly Nu-metal, their sound quickly diversified to the point where they defy a more specific genre. Musically, they combine Nu-metal, Alternative Metal, Post-hardcore, Post-Grunge, Hard Rock, and Pop Punk.

Formed in 1997 by lead singer Ian Watkins, bassist Mike Lewis (currently guitarist), guitarist Lee Gaze and drummer Mike Chiplin (departed in 2005), they quickly gained attention via touring, signing their first deal in 1999. They released their first album, Thefakesoundofprogress, in 2000, and have continued to release an album every two to four years.

Despite a style that is more typically likened to bands from the U.S. (or perhaps because of it), they were much more popular in the U.K. than in the U.S., leading them to not release their 4th album in North America. However, they signed a new deal, leading to their 5th album, Weapons, being currently slated for a June 2012 U.S. release.


Their discography:

  • Thefakesoundofprogress (2000)
  • Start Something (2004)
  • Liberation Transmission (2006)
  • The Betrayed (2010)
  • Weapons (2012)

This band provides examples of:

  • Age Progression Song: The music video of "Last Summer" plays with this. The car windshield washer is doing the exact same thing, shown in three different decades.
  • All Love Is Unrequited: The main focus of "Broken Hearts, Torn Up Letters and the Story of a Lonely Girl".
  • Black Sheep Hit: "I Knew You Were Trouble".
  • Broken Bird: Alluded to in "A Town Called Hypocrisy:
