* Backmasking: "Creepy Green Light" features Steele reciting the prayer "Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep" in the intro, reversed. This is an ironic use of the trope as any Christian Fundamentalists looking for satanic backwards messages would find this one instead. It is quite low in the mix, so often missed by those without good headphones.

* GriefSong: Quite a few, mostly off ''[[CreatorBreakdown World Coming Down]]'' and ''[[CreatorBreakdown Dead Again]]''. "Everyone I Love Is Dead" is only the most straightforward example.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Troll}}: The band were known for doing this very frequently, and not just by having deliberately offensive lyrics. "Skip It", for example, was intended to make the listener think their CD player was broken, just before Kenny Hickey loudly shouts "SUCKER!"

Added DiffLines:

* NoEnding: Their "Day Tripper" [[Music/TheBeatles Beatles medley]] ends with the riff from "I Want You (She's So Heavy)," and the band can't resist abruptly cutting the recording off the same way the original does.

Founded in 1989 upon the ashes of FaceOfTheBand [[LeadBassist (and Bassist)]] Peter Steele's earlier band ''Carnivore,'' ''Type O Negative'''s SignatureStyle was [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly an unlikely mixture]] of Music/BlackSabbath, GothRock, and UsefulNotes/{{Punk}}. They often used a distinct pop / [[AlternativeIndie indie]] sensibility most visible on the ''October Rust'' album. Notable for being one of the [[TropeMakers pioneers]] of GothicMetal. They broke up with the passing of Peter Steele in 2010.
