Thou Shalt Not's music demonstrates the following tropes:

  • Beware of Hitchhiking Ghosts: "State Road 25".
  • Goth: The song "If I Only Were a Goth" satirizes stereotypes related to the subculture, including the Vampire Vannabe tendencies and Wangst.
  • Haunted Technology: "The Haunted Phonograph".
  • I Love the Dead: Again, "If I Only Were a Goth".
  • It Won't Turn Off: The haunted phonograph in the eponymous song continues to play even after its owner tries to throw it away, which more than startled the trashmen.
