** "I Got It From Agnes" is a cheery ditty that gets its humor from the implication that the never-specified "it" was passed around via sexual contact. Lehrer himself has noted that in these post-AIDS times that's somewhat less of a laughing matter.

* There are two filk albums, ''Music/AScarySolstice'' and ''An Even Scarier Solstice'', with solstice carols inspired by Creator/HPLovecraft's horror writings, intended for the listener who's sick of the usual [[TastesLikeDiabetes Christmas soundtrack]] and relying heavily on LyricalDissonance for its comedic effect. This combination backfires badly when you listen to it on Christmas 2015, while catching up on the outcomes of the just concluded 21st international climate conference, and realize that Cthulu and R'yleh work quite well as a metaphor for the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clathrate_gun_hypothesis "methane clathrate gun"]]. [[note]]It's huge, it's been "sleeping" deep under the sea for countless eons, and when it rises, it will cause TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt through runaway climate change and a mass extinction possibly as big as the "Great Dying" at the end of the Permian era. And there are many people (climate scientists) who really do have nightmares about it, and at least a few particularly pessimist dark-green activists have developed mental illness (depression) and even committed suicide.[[/note]] Suddenly, songs like [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptP0OR-e7rI "Death to the World"]] are a lot less funny.

* Music/{{Soundgarden}} fans got saddened to hear Music/ChrisCornell had died, and once the cause of death was discovered as suicide by hanging, songs such as "Like Suicide", "The Day I Tried to Live" and ''specially'' "Pretty Noose" were found pretty uncomfortable to discuss/listen.

*** The handful of narrative sequences in ''Moonwalker'' get uncomfortable due to the three kids who follow Michael around, including the part where he essentially turns into a giant toy and then comes back to lead them to a dark, creepy backstage area to watch him perform. Shout out to the "Speed Demon" sequence where the director has a frustrated breakdown over Michael Jackson being cast as a villain. In context it's supposed to be a gag on the song (he's the guy who did "Bad", so he's literally ''the Bad guy''), but the backlash against the later child abuse allegations put that whole thing in a different light.

* This page lists the deaths of Kurt Cobain, Layne Staley and Chris Cornell. Of the big four of {{Grunge}}, only Music/PearlJam's [[https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2017/05/19/after-chris-cornells-death-only-eddie-vedder-is-left-let-that-sink-in/?tid=pm_national_pop&utm_term=.b4b112402313#comments Eddie Vedder remains]], and the famous TitleDrop "I'm still alive" takes a whole new meaning.
