* PlayingWithATrope: A lot of their songs are hard to classify due to their penchant for [[{{TheUntwist}} untwisting]], [[ZigZagged zig-zagging between]], [[{{Subverted}} subverting]], [[PlayedForLaughs playing for laughs]] and [[PlayedForDrama drama]], often in the same song, and [[{{Exaggerated}} exaggerating]] tropes. For example, is "Love Me Dead" an AntiLoveSong, a SillyLoveSong, a BreakUpSong, an ObsessionSong, or an ObligatoryBondageSong? Is [[RousingSpeech "Battle Cry"]] a parody, a reconstruction, or a played straight?

* FridgeHorror: "Lake Pontchartrain". When you realize that the song [[UnreliableNarrator may not really be]] describing a supernatural experience but [[spoiler: a young man being interviewed about the disappearance and possible murder of his friends,]] it suddenly becomes a lot scarier.
** Alternative, [[AppealToAudacity a story so crazy it must be true.]]
*** Missouri still has the Death penalty. Should the narrator be convicted for the murder of his friends, he would be executed. Now, if his story was true, there even more FridgeHorror because that would mean NO ONE would have survived that encounter, and the Lake would be free to kill even more.
**** Lake Pontchartrain is actually in Louisiana, not Missouri where the band grew up. Though Louisiana does have the death penalty too, so that's still true.

* RuleOfCool: A lot of their songs run on this, especially those from ''Prepare the Preparations'' and their RockOpera ''Broken Bride''.
* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: the basis of the Broken Bride rock opera is the story of an [[LoveMartyr unstable but brilliant man]] building a time machine to go back and stop his wife from dying.
* ShoutOut: In "The Horror of Our Love"- "I'm your servant, [[{{Evanescence}} My Immortal]].."
* SillyLoveSongs: Even the played straight love songs are quite silly, and maybe all the sweeter for it. Straight examples (i.e. not StalkerWithACrush songs, for example) include "Anything for You", "Manta Rays"
