** Played more straight in ''Minutes to Midnight'' with the song "In Pieces", which could be a description of Chester Bennington's divorce. It's essentially the speaker telling his partner to do her worst, because he will endure and not "be the one" to abandon his vows before she does.

* Music/TheReignOfKindo has their song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rVEy0zDh6E "Romancing a Stranger"]], about the futility of unrequited love. From the second line, the singer is already fully aware that "She doesn't love me," yet he still wastes a lot of time and effort on the girl, which eventually leads him to realize, "How pathetic that I care for the romance of a stranger's wanting eyes/Oh, she doesn't love me..."

* The musical numbers in ''Series/Galavant'' thrive on LyricalDissonance, so it's no surprise that ''every'' love song in the first season comes in some flavor of this. To list a few, there's one where Galavant and Isabel affectionately list each other's flaws, another where Madelena sings about how she loves Galavant as much as any sociopathic narcissist can, and a third where Gwynne and the Chef plot to murder their bosses:

* As a non-American example: a Ukrainian band Skryabin made a song in 2008 that started as a love song... until its third line, then for the remainder of the song the singer threatened to mutilate his girl if she even disobeys him or cheats on him (basically a creepy song about domestic violence).

Among the most memorable ones: ** "Vidstan'" ("Let me be") , a song released in 2008 2003 where the singer basically characterizes his girlfriend as bipolar and aggressive, and the chorus includes the lines "You moron, let me be, I'll kill you... I'll put poison in your tea". All that started set to a lovely piano tune. ** "Shmata" ("Whore") released in 2007 where the singer accuses his girl of cheating on him while he was away on his military service. ** "Mumitroll", a song released on the same album as the above that starts as a love song... until its third line, then for the remainder of the song the singer threatened threatens to mutilate his girl if she even disobeys him or cheats on him (basically a creepy song about domestic violence).violence). *** To add irony to that, the two songs were released on an album called "Pro lubov" ("About love") . Meanwhile, in real life, the singer/songwriter was happily married.

* "Easy" by the Commodores overlaps this with the BreakUpSong; the singer's actually pretty relaxed about his impending break-up because the relationship has been unhappy for quite a while.

* Music/Maroon5 songs fall victims to this sometimes. "If I Never See Your Face Again" is about an unhealthy relationship about two that kind of hate each other but have sexual chemistry that keeps them coming back to each other.
