!!Tropes:
* BadBadActing: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVeBgziai5o&feature=g-u&context=G2e54a79FUAAAAAAADAA Murder On The Tour Bus Express]], probably intentional though.
* BreakupSong: Tape Deck Heart is a break up album, with the songs "Recovery", "Losing Days", "Plain Sailing Weather", "Good & Gone", "Tell Tale Signs", "Polaroid Picture", "Anymore" and "Undeveloped Film" all being about break ups in one form or another.
* FisherKing: "The Fisher King Blues"
* GrowingUpSucks: "Photosynthesis"
** "All my friends are getting married, mortgages and pension plans."
*** It gets worse, his latest album, ''England Keep My Bones'' expands this by being focused in many songs on the realization that he will soon die.
* HollywoodAtheist: Averted with ''Glory Hallelujah'' which is a song about how there isn't a God so we can just focus on working hard and being happy.
* HymnToMusic: "I Still Believe"
* KnuckleTattoos. He also has a song called 'Tattoos' celebrating the virtue of the artform.
* LyricalDissonance: The upbeat song "Heartless Bastard Motherfucker"
* MargaretThatcher: "Thatcher Fucked The Kids"
** OldShame: Turner's political opinions have changed a fair bit over time, making "Thatcher Fucked The Kids" this.
* {{Mondegreen}}: "She's so wrapped up in her invisible llama."
* OlympicGames: Played 3 songs for the London 2012 warm-up with his backing band the Sleeping Souls
