* In the Swedish musical ''Djingis Khan (Genghis Khan)'', the most famous number, "Härjarevisan" ''(Translation: "The Raiders' Song")'' is about how the Mongol hordes, led by the titular character, are excited to go raiding once more. The chorus includes a line describing what the raiders are going to get up to, including drinking, fighting, burning cabins, beating children, and... saying bad words. In one official recording, the "bad words" are mainly of the GoshDarnItToHeck variety. The song is also sometimes sung at student dinners and parties, with the "bad words" being names of other universities, professors, courses or whatever else the students in questions dislike. Fitting with the trope name, the song makes references to arson and murder, though not jaywalking.

* ''{{Crimes of the Heart}}'': She began drinking and smoking when she was only 14, she hardly made good grades, why, she never even made her bed!

* In "Spooky Mormon Hell Dream" from ''Theatre/TheBookOfMormon'', the spirits of GenghisKhan, Jeffrey Dahmer, UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler and Johnny Cochran appear, and each describes their claim to infamy. Cochran is the last to mention his crime, which was getting OJ Simpson free. Elder Price then tells them that leaving his companion was "way worse" than what they did.
