* In the Music/PinkFloyd ConceptAlbum, ''Music/TheWall'', Pink is born to a father absent to him due to dying in WorldWarII and an [[MyBelovedSmother overprotective mother]] who micromanages his love life and leaves him paranoid and dependent. His [[SadistTeacher teachers are cruel and oppressive]], humiliating his artistic inclinations in front of the classroom. He becomes a famous rock star, but his SexDrugsAndRockAndRoll lifestyle, penchant for groupies and self-indulgence, and emotional coldness towards his wife (due partly to the female issues his mother instilled in him) led his wife to [[YourCheatingHeart cheat on him]] ([[UnreliableNarrator or at least Pink takes it this way when another man answers the phone when he calls her from his hotel room]], and his manager injects drugs into him to keep him performing, even against his will. With each predicament, Pink layers a metaphorical "brick" on his "wall", leading to Pink isolating himself and decaying. In his madness, he imagines himself as a contemptuous, fascistic figure, leading his audience to a pseudo-Nazi-like rally until his the judge and jury in brain hold him for trial and tear down his wall. [[HereWeGoAgain Then the cycle repeats itself...]]]

Now the tragic story songs are used to help justify the songs [[{{Flanderization}} glorifying the criminal lyrics]].
