* [[ThisIsSpinalTap Spinal Tap's]] "Cups And Cakes" uses "gay" in the sense of "happy" (what a gay time it will be"). The song was released in 1984, but in the world of the mockumentary it's from, it's supposed to be a song from in the 60's. There was probably some deliberate humor in placing that word in a campy, [[TastesLikeDiabetes overly cutesy]] song by what was otherwise meant to be a heavy metal/ hard rock band.

* The term ''rock'n roll'', itself, is an inversion. Originally, in the early 20th century, it was a slang used by black people for sex. By the time the term was coined for the musical style, its meaning was greatly toned down to refer to sock hops and other such parties.
