* The Italian disco group Easy Going went darker and edgier in their second album ''Fear''. Their self-titled first album with two (nude) men in a fight may be a small group of campy songs with little or no homosexual references overall in the lyrics ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymZcUpPAisQ "Little Fairy"]] may have such clues), but ''Fear'' clearly brought the LGBT theme to the songs. According to author [[https://books.google.com/books?id=3GDoCQAAQBAJ&pg=PA79 Francesco Cataldo Verrina]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sK7MsQshW1g "I Strip You"]] is about a man confessing to a woman on his homosexuality, and in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iq5F1sQkImM "Fear"]] a man discovers his homosexuality while courting a girl. The latter song is more deserving of being the group's darkest song, as it includes a grim tone, lyrics mentioning varieties of pain hurting the male character, and a sequence with a screaming woman and a siren. The group's last album ''Casanova'' returns to a general tone closer to the original album's, with potentially gay references limited at least or only to the song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mdte2eNFJo "A Gay Time Latin Lover."]]

* Compare the album "The Cheerful Insanity of Giles, Giles and Fripp" to anything that Music/KingCrimson's done, ever. The first King Crimson lineup ''was'' Giles, Giles and Fripp, plus Greg Lake and Ian McDonald.

* Music/{{PSY}}'s earlier singles [[OlderThanTheyThink when he debuted in 2001]] (''Bird'' and ''The End'' for example) were full of SarcasmMode against cynical social phenomenon spewing with some Korean cuss words and sarcastic sentence, but at least it is somewhat colorful. Then come to his 2005 single, ''Urbanite'', which deals with one of the most-cynical phenomena, {{Workaholic}} stress and city life issues. This single was rendered in monochromatic effects complete with RidiculouslyHumanRobots or ArtificialHumans replacing natural workforces.

* Music/GeorgeHarrison's songwriting got especially dark in his 1975 album "Extra Texture (Read All About)" in which most of the songs take a noticeably dark turn.
* Music/TheBeatles as a group went DarkerAndEdgier gradually, from ''Music/BeatlesForSale'' up to the ''Music/TheWhiteAlbum'', but seemed to be going in the opposite direction at the time of the breakup.

Though light, silly songs remained ("Back In The U.S.S.R", "Obi-La-Di, Obi-La-Da", "Birthday") many songs on the time of album were quite dark, such as "Julia", about the breakup.death of John Lennon's mother, "Blackbird", about racism, and especially "Revolution 9", a nightmarish sound collage.

* More generally [[BoyBand Boy bands]], if they last more than a few years, will generally become frustrated with the limited TastesLikeDiabetes material they are spoon fed in their early career and want to pursue a more grown up sound with darker and more introspective lyrics and more aggressive instrumentation, sometimes played by themselves as they strive to prove they have genuine talent.

* Metal band Music/{{Ill Nino}}'s fifth album ''Dead New World'' featured a much more aggressive sound than their previous works, with more frequent and angry harsh vocals (with the exception of a couple songs), louder production, heavier riffs, darker subject matter, and less Latin influence. And this is from the same band who put out an album 7 years earlier that was basically a slightly harder version of early LinkinPark.

* All of the Music/StrappingYoungLad albums are this to Creator/DevinTownsend's solo work. Although some of Devin's solo albums can be considered dark based on their lyrical content and heaviness. Physicist and Deconstruction are heavier compared to others and their lyrics are darker. Ocean Machine's lyrical themes revolve around Life, Death, Isolation, etc. Ki for it's moody atmosphere. And Ghost 2 will appear to have more in common with Ki in terms of atmosphere rather than the original Ghost, which was Devin's attempt at LighterAndSofter.
