* The {{Skillet}} song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zk0Sr0C3yYM Rise]] is about the horrors of war and terrorism and standing up to it. To hammer it home, the last 40 seconds forgo singing altogether and just drop anvils.

* In a similar sense, the {{Glurge}}-ridden "Christmas Shoes" definitely qualifies, dropping an anvil about helping the poor so huge you won't know what hit you after the song ends.

* "Think About It" by Music/FlightOfTheConchords is a parody of this trope in music. In it the narrator complains about various social topics, but keeps going off on random FridgeLogic tangents that [[BrokenAesop break]] or [[CluelessAesop misunderstand]] the moral. For example, while discussing the poor working conditions of children made to work in sweatshops, the narrator starts wondering why shoes are so expensive if the companies selling them are making them so cheaply/easily.

** Not to be confused with "Green Chri$tma$", an anvilly-but-funny swipe at Christmas commercialization by humorist and [[BitingTheHandHumor ad man]] Stan Freberg. Or the Barenaked Ladies' "Green Christmas", which is just about being lonely at Christmas.

* Music/PinkFloyd's 1983 album ''The Final Cut'', was released in response to UsefulNotes/TheFalklandsWar. ** In which we learn (again; see "Pigs (Three Different Ones)") that Roger Waters reeeally doesn't like MargaretThatcher. Okay Rog. We get it. ** Pretty much anything by Waters counts - after all The Final Cut is subtitled "A requiem for the post-war dream by Roger Waters, performed by Pink Floyd". He continued to drop the anvil on us in his solo career, and this year's ''The Wall'' tour has decorations that send quite unsubtle messages.

* The title track of Music/TheSmiths' album ''Meat is Murder''. * Composer/JohannSebastianBach was anvilicious, at least in his cantata production. Besides the biblical texts, the commenting arias and recitations had one point: ''Seek Jesus inside your heart!'' This message props up in different settings over and over. Added to the soloists, you also have the hymns, supposed to be sung by the congregation. Thus his listeners, attending regular mass in the Leipzig church of st.Thomas, got that message through loud and clear.

** ''EarthTheBook'' parodied this by saying "WAR! Huh! What's it good for...aside from ending slavery... and stopping Hitler."

** Music/{{Propagandhi}} are the biggest of them all. No matter what choices you make in life or opinions you have about anything, Propagandhi make it their personal mission to make you feel bad about it, whether it's feeling that anything about the current administration is remotely acceptable, eating or milking animals, [[MaleGaze looking at a woman's boobs for more than 3 seconds]], or [[NoTrueScotsman listening to music that they don't like]]. And [[FromBadToWorse it gets worse]] with each album. Lines like "Fuck the troops to hell!" are rather hard to top.

* "Green Christmas", a song on Website/YouTube. It is very Anvilcious about its environmental message and has nothing to do with Christmas. The word 'Christmas' was put in there as a form of WolverinePublicity.
