* Played with interestingly in the Music/IronMaiden song "Lord of Light." The Lord of Light in question is, of course, Lucifer, but there is room for doubt as to how evil he's meant to be (not helped by the fact that he's one of the narrators in the song, ''all'' of which are [[UnreliableNarrator unreliable]]). [[WoundedGazelleGambit Is he trying to tempt the character(s) he's speaking to into sin?]] [[TragicVillain Warn them away from the fate he's consigned himself to?]] [[SatanIsGood Provide them with a suitable alternative to]] [[GodIsEvil their own corrupt religion?]] It's impossible to say.

* The Music/SpawnOfPossession song "Apparition" has the titular angel who appears as a being of light, who convinces the father of a family to murder his wife and daughter. It later reveals itself to be a demon as it [[FateWorseThanDeath takes his son away]].

* The general message of Music/MarilynManson is half this, half DarkIsNotEvil. Even the original ThemeNaming was about this. The first half of the names was taken from a female sex symbol, and the second half from a convicted murderer. As Marilyn Manson himself said, Marilyn Monroe had bad qualities about her, and Charles Manson has good ones about him (environmentalism, for example). We see only the badness in people we're told are bad, and only the good in people we're told are good. Much of the band's songs and videos highlight these subjects, ranging from the video for Dope Hat's [[UpToEleven even darker]] take on ''Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory'''s boat scene, to Coma White, a song about suicide by OD, to the entire character of Omega (pronounced oh-me-ga) from Mechanical Animals, who is completely white as paper besides for his hair and makeup (and sometimes even his hair is white), but is a dead inside [[ShoutOut rock star]] [[DavidBowie androgynous space alien]]. TheUnseen, Alpha (also called Mar1lyn Man5on due to Manson's obsession with [[ArcNumber 15]]), meanwhile, is a hopeless romantic, who is the other protagonist of the album and sings the emotional songs on it. Manson himself, although dressing in all black most of the time, and covered in tattoos, is an intelligent, DeadpanSnarker who often shows that, despite his shocking image, is actually extremely laid back. His closest love in the world is his pet cat, Lily White, who he considers his child.

* Music/LadyGaga's video for "BadRomance." White walls and furnishings, bright lighting, lots of white and/or sparkly costumes, and the plot ([[MindScrew as far as the audience can tell]]) involves slavery and murder.
