Added DiffLines:

* BasedOnAGreatBigLie: Spaceship Zero claims to be a soundtrack, for a film that doesn't exist. It was marketed as such to tie-in with their roleplaying game of the same name, which lists a huge history of media that inspired it, all fictional.

The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets is a rock band from Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada. Their music largely consists of often tongue-in-cheek homages to the works of HPLovecraft, specifically the CthulhuMythos, with the band's name itself being drawn from a phrase in Lovecraft's story "The Tomb": "I will tell only of the lone tomb in the darkest of the hillside thickets."

* BodyHorror: Frequently played for laughs, most notably in the appropriately-titled ''Burrow Your Way to my Heart'', ''Hookworm'' (Oh, God, ''Hookworm''), and ''The Innsmouth Look''.
* DarkReprise: Happens within a song called ''Operation: Get the Hell Out of Here,'' and the chorus goes "Take your time, take your toll, everything's under control/Execute Operation: Get the Hell Out of Here" until after the last verse of the song, where the protagonists accidentally unleash an Eldritch Abomination, it's changed to "Take your life, take your soul, everything's out of control/Execute Operation: Get the Hell Out of Here".
* DeathByWomanScorned: Possibly subverted in ''Jimmy the Squid''. Jimmy is accused of killing his mate for sleeping with another squid. He says he's innocent.

* EyeScream: ''Tarred and Feathered'' is about a torturer talking about his favorite activities (or perhaps receiving advice from monsters, it's kinda vague) and includes the lines "Here's some silver fishhook/To slip in their eyes" and "Here's some metal cubes and jacks/Force them in their sockets".

* TearJerker: "Burrow Your Way To My Heart". At first glance it's BodyHorror PlayedForLaughs, but think about it; it's about a child so starved for love that they consider wasp stings to be physical affection and ringworm blemishes to be companions.
