* At the peak of their popularity, Brazilian band Mamonas Assassinas were frequent guests on local television shows, such as ''Domingão do Faustão'', which was (and still is) broadcast on Rede Globo. During [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PwXplj3ssNs one of their performances]] at ''Domingão'', the host, Fausto Silva, proclaimed "For the first and last time on Globo!", which turned out to be eerily accurate when a plane crash killed all five members of the band.

* Pop singer Christina Grimmie's very popular cover of Sia's "Titanium," a song which revolves all around an "I'm bulletproof, guns can't kill me, go ahead and shoot me" metaphor, is very difficult to listen to since she was murdered at a fan meet and greet via gunshot to the head.

* It's either this or FunnyAneurysmMoment, but "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superman%27s_Song Superman's Song]]" by Music/CrashTestDummies is a mournful dirge that tells the story of Franchise/{{Superman}} who had the power [[SuperDickery to commit great evil and bring himself unfathomable riches]], but instead chose to use his powers for good, while expecting no payment for his deeds (the song also compares him to Franchise/{{Tarzan}} of the Apes, who is considered to be a crude, rouge, and uncivilized AntiHero). The song focuses on the death of the superhero, and its chorus says it all: "Superman never made any money / For saving the world from Solomon Grundy / '''''And sometimes I despair the world will never see''''' / '''''Another man like him'''''". As if that wasn't chilling enough, there is even a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihUIPlLw2ZE music video]] that shows his funeral! And this was over a year before the ''[[ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman Death of Superman]]'' StoryArc!

Added DiffLines:

** "When I'm Sixty-Four" is not only harsher for Music/JohnLennon and Music/GeorgeHarrison--who did not live to 64--but it was harsher for its writer, Music/PaulMcCartney. Between the death of his first wife, Linda, and his separation from his second wife, Heather Mills, the answer to "Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm sixty-four." was sadly, "No".

** And then it turned out he didn't even write the damn song.
* Post-metal band Isis formed in 1997, naming themselves after the Egyptian goddess. By 2014, the band had long broken up, but their name started carrying rather different connotations due to the existence of ISIS, the Islamic terrorist group - it doesn't help that the band had usually stylized their logo in all capital letters, making it look like an acronym. Their facebook page, which was mainly being used to promote former band members' other projects at that point, started being inundated with angry comments apparently confusing them with the Islamic militants, and fans noted being understandably reluctant to wear their t-shirts in public anymore. They did take a small measure against the facebook issue, changing the name of their page from "ISIS" to the less ambiguous "Isis the band".

* Miss Kittin & The Hacker's electroclash single "Frank Sinatra" was originally released in July 1998 and featured the lyric "You know Music/FrankSinatra? He's dead" - Sinatra was still alive when the single was released, but died in May of 1998. Miss Kittin has said she meant the reference as a ShoutOut (and as a [[PainfulRhyme very loose rhyme for]] "VIP area"), but apparently genuinely thought he was already dead when she wrote the song.

* ''Rise Above'', a 2002 Music/BlackFlag tribute album performed by [[Music/HenryRollins The Rollins Band]] and various guest vocalists, included Nick Oliveri ({{Music/Kyuss}}, Music/QueensOfTheStoneAge) singing "Jealous Again". The song's narrator, addressing his girlfriend, claims "I won't beat you up / No, I won't push you around / 'cause if I did that the cops would get me for doin' it"; this became ironic after an incident in 2011 where Oliveri was [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nick_Oliveri#Legal_issues arrested on suspicion of domestic violence]].

* In May 1929, popular blues singer Bessie Smith recorded [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MzU8xM99Uo Nobody Knows When You're Down and Out]], a song about a millionare who loses all their money and becomes a pauper. Barely two weeks after it was released, the stock market crash of Black October led to the Great Depression and the complete wreckage of the American economy, making this song a bitter reality for many.
