* ThreeChordsAndTheTruth: Well, more like just three chords and some variation, with ''Return of Ghost Sheriff (Werewolves Are Chasing Me)''. However, it doesn't quite fit, as it's still 43 minutes long.

* DoingItForTheArt: To the point that many of their releases are released into the public domain; others are released via Creative Commons licenses. On their Facebook, they seem to generally give a thumbs-up to when people use their material in other projects (e.g., films).



* PlayingAgainstType: While ''Of What Far Sea Upon What Unknown Ground'' is less than five minutes long, it still fits the Bull of Heaven drone rock theme. However, ''I Watched You Enter Your Home From Inside A Dumpster'' is not only short (at 7 minutes), it's a simple piano piece. While the band is best known for their extremely repetitive, stripped-down, unproduced sound, ''A Feeling for the Order Lying Behind the Appearance'' is an intricate avant-garde jazz piece using many instruments and production techniques, and ''Four Years Ago? Opium.'' is an extremely short experimental hip hop piece.
** 2013 saw Bull of Heaven release a multitude of stoner rock pieces, all of varying lengths.
** The band also released a fan-made collection of love songs called ''Songs for Girls'' in early 2014.
** The Roman-numeral pieces can sort of be seen as this, eschewing long, wordy titles for simple Roman numerals.
