    Autostrad's music is influenced by a mix of rock, reggae, Latin and funk combined with their own created lyrics of Jordanian slang. The topics draw inspiration from everyday life in Jordan, the group conveys stories of love, struggle, financial challenges, drug abuse, and finding oneself through their music. The band has gained popularity amongst Jordanian youth because of their music evokes daily life in the country.

    They have toured the Arab Middle East, at times fostering controversy. Their tour that included the Golan Heights, Nazareth, Haifa, Ramallah and Jerusalem's Old City drew criticism because of their decision to cross the Jordan River using a visa issued by the Israeli Embassy in Amman.
