Added DiffLines:

* BilingualBonus: Some of his lyrics are, perhaps unsurprisingly, in Spanish. "Golpe de estado" is almost entirely in Spanish.

* ShoutOut: To everything from adult film star Peter North to Egyptian monarch Tutankhamen. Most songs have several of these.


Added DiffLines:

* TakeThat: At least [[OnceAnEpisode once a song]]. In fact, a strong case could be made that this trope is the primary reason Tech's music even exists.

* TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou: At the end of "Dance With the Devil", the singer turns out to be one of the gangsters in the story and says this:
--> And now the Devil follows me everywhere that I go/In fact, I'm sure he's standing among one of you at my shows


Added DiffLines:

* BeingEvilSucks: The main theme of "Dance With the Devil". The protagonist wanted to live out "the ''Film/{{Scarface|1983}}'' fantasy stuck in his brain" and gain the money, power, women and respect [[DamnItFeelsGoodToBeAGangster that can come with being a crime lord]]. He ended up [[spoiler: killing himself after finding out that he ''raped his own mother'' as a gang initiation]]. The song ends with the lines "So when the devil wants to play with you, you better say never / Because the dance with the devil might last you forever".



* DoingItForTheArt: Has rejected many offers made by major record labels, as he says in "Freedom Of Speech".

Added DiffLines:

* IfYoureSoEvilEatThisKitten: In "Dance With the Devil", the protagonist asks a local gang if he can join them. They don't take him seriously just yet, partly due to his lack of reputation but mostly because he once snitched to the cops after getting caught. So they suggest he prove himself by doing something truly cold hearted, such as raping a woman. [[spoiler: He does. And [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone it turns out to be his own mother]]]].
