* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Peter mostly sings normally, and in the SpokenWordInMusic bits shows an obvious Brooklyn accent, but in some songs ("Todd's Ship Gods (Above All Things),") especially when performing in the ridiculously deep voice, it sounds like he's singing in an accent stuck between "Noo Yawker" and "Vaguely {{Uberwald}}ian."

* StealthParody: The band's SignatureSong, "Black No. 1," is an indictment of the entire {{Goth}} subculture. Which, [[ViewersAreMorons of course]], didn't stop goth kids everywhere from [[MisaimedFandom adopting it as their anthem]].

* CreditsGag: Peter Steele would have friends of the band contribute group backing vocals on certain songs and credit them as "The Bensonhoist Lesbian Choir"; "Bensonhoist" is Bensonhurst, a neighborhood of Brooklyn, rendered in a [[FunetikAksent phonetic Brooklyn accent]].

* GreatestHitsAlbum: Two of them, one compiled by the band themselves, and another put together by their by-then-former record label, both largely covering the same material. In line with the band's occasional use of SelfDeprecation, the former was called ''The Least Worst of Type O Negative'', and started with a completely silent filler track from one of their albums ([[DontExplainTheJoke the implication being that]] they considered ''39 seconds of silence'' to be among their best work.) The Least Worst Of was a handy release for fans because it was almost half full of rarities. It was complemented by a bonus disc that appeared with the special edition of ''Life is Killing Me'', which collected up the period rarities that hadn't appeared on ''The Least Worst'', and added the newly recorded "Out of the Fire (Kane's Theme)." ''The Best of Type O Negative'' was not endorsed by the band, but it was chronological (unlike ''The Least Worst'') and it included the band's rare cover of "Highway Star" (originally by Music/DeepPurple) that had been done for a 2002 {{Nascar}} compilation, which many fans were unaware of.

* AuthorExistenceFailure: Steele passed away April 14, 2010. [[FunnyAneurysmMoment They weren't kidding this time]].

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Their demo tape under the name ''Repulsion'', which contained demos of the songs from ''Slow, Deep and Hard'', and the 'tape chewing' version of "Skip It" from the cassette version of ''World Coming Down''. However, neither of these circulate online, possibly due to the band's forum no longer existing.

* {{Squick}}: Steele didn't exactly steer clear of unsavory subjects.

* TallDarkandHandsome: At 6'6", Peter Steele was the epitome of this trope. ** TallDarkandSnarky: Peter was known for sarcastic, self deprecating humor as well.

** And the cover of ''Slow, Deep, and Hard'' is a picture of vaginal insertion, just put through a filter that makes it not noticeable until you are looking for it. And after that, you can't stop seeing it. The remastered version removes the filter.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: ''Slow, Deep and Hard'' was very thrashy and, while possessing rudimentary examples of elements that would later become a big part of their sound, didn't have much in common with the rest of their discography. This is because the material on that album was largely comprised of Carnivore leftovers that Peter had sitting around and wanted to use anyways.

* IAmTheBand: Averted. Though Peter Steele was without question the {{Face Of The Band}} and main songwriter, many decisions were made by other members (such as using programmed drums on the three albums recorded after Johnny Kelly replaced their previous drummer Sal Abruscato, ''October Rust'', ''World Coming Down'' and ''Life Is Killing Me''; only their last album features Johnny Kelly playing actual drums). * IdiosyncraticAlbumTheming: Several of the band's albums start with sound effect-laden or humorous intros, such as: "Machine Screw" on ''Bloody Kisses'' (a combination of machine sounds and a woman having sex), "Bad Ground" and the untitled intro and outro of the band [[SelfDeprecation jokingly playing down the album]] on ''October Rust'', and "Skip It" on ''World Coming Down'', 10 seconds of sounds edited to sound like the CD is skipping followed by Kenny Hickey shouting "Sucker!" (the cassette version replaced that with editing to make it sound like the tape was being eaten). * ILoveTheDead: While not as explicit as one would expect from a songwriter with Steele's sense of humour (or decency), some songs (''Haunted'' comes to mind) have shades of this.

* {{Intercourse With You}}: "Wolf Moon." Seriously. Go back and re-read the lyrics. ** Many of their songs on their October Rust album qualify. * KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Their demo tape under the name Repulsion, which contained demos of the songs from Slow Deep And Hard, and the 'tape chewing' version of Skip It from the cassette version of World Coming Down.

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Generally 7, veering into 8 territory on their debut and Dead Again, and some of their more playful or slow songs at 5 or 6. The band almost go into full piano ballad territory with "September Sun", but it gets heavier in the chorus.

* MurderBallad: "Xero Tolerance," "Prelude to Agony". * NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: Pigeonholed as gothic metal, the genres that they mixed included crossover thrash, gothic rock, industrial, stoner metal, doom metal, 60s protopunk, and no small amount of pop (albeit in a very snide, mocking manner). The results spoke for themselves. ** It doesn't help that they were on a lot of soundtracks during the Nu Metal period, which led a lot of people to assume they were part of that movement, when they weren't.

* {{Polyamory}}: "My Girlfriend's Girlfriend", presented with a heavy dose of GirlOnGirlIsHot. Especially the video, where Peter spends most of his time either being fawned over by two beautiful women, or watching them fawn over each other. [[{{SarcasmMode}} He obviously hated this, and said so on the ''After Dark'' DVD commentary]]

* RatedGForGangsta: The ''Bloody Kisses'' album shamelessly mocks this phenomenon by way of {{Mood Whiplash}}, ''October Rust'' is a [[{{Stealth Parody}} seemingly]] straighter example, and ''World Coming Down'' an [[{{Inverted Trope}} inversion]]. When they apparently tried this genuinely with ''Life is Killing Me''...another {{Creator Breakdown}} happened and they made the dark, aggressive ''Dead Again''. * RefugeInAudacity: Peter's lyrics/themes introduced to the band definitely count. Fans familiar with his earlier stint with Carnivore weren't surprised and knew his remarks were tongue-in-cheek, since that band openly wrote songs with titles like "Jesus Hitler", "Male Supremacy", and "Race War", while people who only knew Type O Negative thought the band was sexist/fascist in nature due to the aforementioned offensive lyrics and themes. As a result, the band wrote "Kill All the White People" and "We Hate Everyone" to dispute these claims.
