No plastic money anymore die Banken gegen ihn".

Added DiffLines:

* French Punk smash hit "Ca plane[[note]]No, not the "plane", that's perfect French although that might have influenced the English cover version "Jet Boy Jet Girl".[[/note]] pour moi" by Plastic Bertrand. Since the text leans a bit into WordSaladLyrics, it's probably moot to ask what "It's not today" refers to. ("I'm the king of the diwan" is pretty clear, though.)

Added DiffLines:

* The Russian {{trance}} song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qsR3BrXZOTM "www.Germany.ru" by Valday]], despite its name, doesn't feature any GratuitousGerman, but it does have a smattering of gratuitous English words such as "internet", "electronic", "megabyte", and "site".

* The Ayumi song ''Brave Heart'' is entirely in Japanese, except for the words "show me your brave heart", repeated twice, and the last line, "believe in your heart".

* Most Japanese {{Vocaloid}}s are pretty bad at pronouncing any English word (except for Luka, who actually has an English voice bank). Try Miku's "Cinderella romance" (SUPAA POWAFURU SINDERRA, LOVU LOVU LOVU LOVU LOVULII DAHLEEN! SUPA POWA FURU LOVU ATTAKKU!)

* Essentially anything by the Japanese band ''BACK-ON.'' The best part about it though is that most of it is ''rapped'' perfectly (pronunciation, grammar, etc). From ''Blaze Line,'' the theme song to [[EyeShield21 Eyeshield 21]]:

* VisualKei / MelodicDeathMetal band Music/BloodStainChild fell into this pretty hard, until they hired Greek singer Sophia for their album Epsilon, who happened to be a polyglot who spoke five languages, including English. The lyrics of Epsilon are vastly more understandable than anything else the band has put out. For comparison, the first single they released after her departure, "Last Stardust" with Japanese singer Kiki, included the lines "Find out a invisible myself/We will break down thousands darkness fear".
