%%* ''Music/AvengedSevenfold'', although their music is still dark-and-edgy by general music standards.

* The first two albums by Music/MotleyCrue, ''Live Wire'' and ''Shout at the Devil'', were dark and gritty HeavyMetal albums with lyrics that dealt with things like drug abuse and Satanism. Beginning with their third album, ''Theater Of Pain'', they moved in a more MTV-friendly hard rock direction with rock anthems like "Smokin' In The Boys' Room" and ballads like "Home Sweet Home."

* Music/{{Alabama}} went through this as the decade turned from TheEighties to TheNineties. Their sound had most of the rock edge turned down, and they began doing more contemporary, mainstream country with slicker production while phasing out their IntercourseWithYou tendencies almost entirely. 1989's ''Southern Star'' seems to be the approximate turning point, as it was when they switched producers to Josh Leo.

* In the beginning, Music/{{Sevendust}} gradually got lighter with each release. Their SelfTitledAlbum was very aggressive, raw metal with some songs bordering on [[ThrashMetal Crossover Thrash]], a far cry from the more accessible sound of their later albums. ''Home'' and ''Animosity'' featured more clean vocals and less screaming, but were still relatively heavy. ''Seasons'' and ''Next'', however, really toned things down, with half the songs being borderline radio rock that wouldn't sound out of place on a LinkinPark album. Which makes it rather jarring to hear the album that came after ''Next'', ''Alpha'', which is their angriest, loudest, and heaviest album to date.

** Specific rapper example: The early works made by South Korean rapper Music/{{PSY}} [[OlderthanTheyThink during his debut years were dark and gritty, with his ''Urbanite'' took that UpToEleven by turning Workaholic [[CrapsaccharineWorld Crapsaccharine social phenomenon]] into SarcasmMode. Then come to TheNewTens, his recent songs like ''Music/GangnamStyle'' and ''Napal Baji'' becoming brighter and sillier, with a few serious moments.

* Music/{{Katatonia}} was a TropeCodifier for the death/doom metal sound on their first few releases, but they proceeded to drop the DeathMetal elements in favor for AlternativeMetal, while keeping a heavy DoomMetal influence still.
