Added DiffLines:

* Also subverted in the ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "Bart's Comet": With the citizens of Springfield cut off from any means of escape and the comet hurtling toward the city close enough to not only be seen with the naked eye, but heard with the naked ear, Ned Flanders accepts his fate and walks up to a nearby hill, staring at the comet and singing "Que Sera Sera." The other citizens, seeing him do this, gradually come join him to sing it together. Subverted in that [[spoiler:the comet burns up in the atmosphere until it's too small to harm anyone--though as Bart discovers, it's still very hot to the touch.]]

* "Blue" from ''Anime/CowboyBebop''. (But we're not quite sure he ''is'' dead...)

to:

* ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' has two songs, although one of them is never actually heard anywhere in the entire series proper.
**
"Blue" plays for the ending credits of the final episode, right after we see Spike collapse on the stairs after finishing a fight to the death. Word is still out on whether he actually dies or not, but the lyrics fit this trope.
-->Everything is clearer, now.\\
Life is just a dream, you know?\\
It's never ending.\\
I'm ascending.
** "No Reply", a song that never actually plays anywhere in the series, is part of the "Knocking on Heaven's Door OST Future Blues" soundtrack. The song details how the singer laments how he'll never be with the woman he loves, a woman who doesn't know he loves her, but has always supported him at every turn. A woman who will never know how he feels about her as [[DrivenToSuicide he has already jumped
from ''Anime/CowboyBebop''. (But we're not quite sure he ''is'' dead...)the top of a building]].

* [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in the [[WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill]] episode ''"Tankin' it to the Streets"''. As [[FatIdiot Bill]] floors a tank through a war games field in which soldiers are firing live artillery, he sings ''[[Music/LynyrdSkynyrd Free Bird]]'' in a broken voice, before seemingly being blown up by the artillery. After his friends break down thinking they've lost him, it turns out he was blown into the bushes, alive and having conveniently gotten his carpal tunnel blown off!
