** The song "Brown Shoes Don't Make It" from his second album ''Music/AbsolutelyFree'' has become a HUGE, almost to the point of being prophetic, FAM for the 2016 Presidential Election.

** It gets better: the song describes the titular nightclub as a "Lugar de ambiente", which maybe at the time meant "the It place" but in many Spanish-speaking places is slang for "[[WhereEverybodyKnowsYourFlame Gay Bar]]". Juan Gabriel's act was {{Camp}}ier than Liberace's, and the popular perception of him was that of a CampGay, but he denied every accusation of being gay himself, either by deflecting the question or claiming that he just didn't want his and his partner/mother of his kids' private lives exposed to the tabloids.

* One of the first hits by Mexican showman Juan Gabriel is ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vOD7PawjlU El Noa Noa]]'', a song about a night club in Ciudad Juarez where he began his career. Now that the Noa Noa club no longer exists (it was damaged by a fire in 1994 and demolished in 2007) and Ciudad Juarez has become a WretchedHive... eeeeeeeep.

** Back when "Trigger Happy" was released in 1992, it was a darkly humorous song about gun nuts. But two decades later, when mass shootings are a nigh weekly feature on the news...



* Music/GirlsAloud are also prone to this. Their single "No Good Advice" from 2003 had a SurrealMusicVideo featuring them [[MsFanservice dressed in silver]] posing on a 1980s Buick Regal. It may have seemed slightly funny, or even sexy back then in May 2003, but now, as of May 2014, it seems ''much'' less funnier than before with current concerns over sexualization in music videos (e.g. MileyCyrus), the GM Chapter 11 reorganization of 2009, and the fact that GM now has lost its individuality with regard to models and there being a lot of badge-engineering in GM as well (also, the Buick Verano is a rebranded Opel Astra, the Buick Regal an Opel Insignia).

* Music/CourtneyLove ([[YokoOhNo controversial wife]] of Kurt Cobain) was in a band called Hole, which released an album called ''Music/LiveThroughThis'' on April 12, 1994 - only four days after Kurt Cobain was found dead in his home. To make matters worse, one of the songs (entitled "Rock Star", a thing Kurt was never comfortable with being) has a line "Barrel of laughs to be Music/{{Nirvana}}, hope you'd rather die". Even if you're aware that the album was completed before Kurt died, it's still pretty creepy (especially if you believe that Courtney murdered Kurt). It's possibly worth noting that Hole's bassist, Kristen Pfaff, died of a heroin overdose several months later. The unfortunate release date, much like the [=Slayer=] example listed above, was just bad timing.

* In 1984, Music/{{Prince}} sang the line "Are we gonna let the elevator break us down?" in the song "Let's Go Crazy". In 2016, he was found dead on his Paisley Park complex...in an elevator.

* While the video was released in about 6 months after Jenny survived a home invasion, one of the songs recorded AceOfBase debut album was titled "Living in Danger", which was done in 1993. The video had a woman in fear that she was about stalked by a man [[spoiler: a former fighter pilot seeking redemption]], and Jenny was watching the woman in question. It was a woman who attacked Jenny in [[OhCrap real life]], who targeted Malin. Malin wasn't there at the scene but it did have an [[CreatorBreakdown effect on her mental health]].

* There are two filk albums with solstice carols inspired by [[HPLovecraft H. P. Lovecraft's]] horror writings, intended for the listener who's sick of the usual [[TastesLikeDiabetes Christmas soundtrack]] and relying heavily on LyricalDissonance for it's 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.
* When ChuckBerry appeared on ''Top of the Pops'' to perform "My Ding-A-Ling", the BBC only let him do so on the condition that they provide illustrations to show what a "ding-a-ling" actually was. They did so by bringing in a family friendly artist to draw along to the performance. When you consider that Rolf Harris was convicted in 2014 of molesting underage girls, it takes on a whole new meaning.

* Music/CledusTJudd made a RunningGag of courting Music/ShaniaTwain in his parodies of her material. The last one he did, "Shania, I'm Broke" (a takeoff of "Honey, I'm Home"), contained a lyric about praying that she and husband Creator/RobertJohnMuttLange would get a divorce one day so that Shania could be his wife instead. Twain and Lange divorced in 2010.
