* Trip-hop duo [[Music/CiboMatto Cibo Matto]] toy with this trope in their 1996 album "Viva! La Woman". It's a food ConceptAlbum: Every single song is about food and named for food (except "Theme", which is still about it). Indeed, some are funny: "Know Your Chicken" (a pet chicken gets cooked?), "Birthday Cake" (a hippie mother makes a cake for her son, to his dismay). Most are artsy or poignant. Some are even subversive, such as the creepy, sensual cover of "[[Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory The Candy Man]]". Their thesis? Featuring food in a song, if it doesn't instantly make it funny, at least makes it super-evocative.

* Comedy-metal band {{Music/Psychostick}}'s album "Sandwich" overuses this trope so much they included a spoken-word track called "Too Many Food" that does nothing but hang a lampshade on it.
-->'''One Guy:''' Do you guys realize there's like a ton of songs about food on this new CD?\\
'''Other Guy:''' Dude. What do you have against food?\\
'''One Guy:''' Don't get me wrong man: If food was a band, I'd be at every show. But, uh, don't you think we should write at least one song that would, you know, like... sell?\\
'''Other Guy:''' What if food was a band? [...] What would food play?\\
'''Third Guy:''' I don't know. A sandwich?\\

* [[http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=uw0nCHvU19o Noodles Can't Be Beat]], a [[CookingDuel rap battle]] with the villain of [[VideoGame/ParappaTheRapper Parappa The Rapper 2]] where he espouses the perfection of noodles while Parappa tries to convince him the worth of other foods like sweets. It's given some foreshadowing because the first song of the game [[http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Pv5au5ghmfE Toasty Buns]] involves the big bad's grandfather mentoring you how to make burgers.

->"Is it going to be about food?"
-->-- '''[[{{Music/Nirvana}} Kurt Cobain]]''', in response to Music/WeirdAlYankovic asking to parody Smells Like Teen Spirit



* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NT4OqWAlbfw Slurf Song]]" by Music/MichaelHurley and Music/TheHolyModalRounders is about various kinds of food. It's also pretty hard not to laugh--or at least crack a smile--while listening to it.

** "Call Any Vegetable"...or "Burnt Weeny Sandwich"...etc. Due to the intimidating [[ArchivePanic breadth of Zappa's back catalogue]], an exhaustive list could jeopardize the integrity of the TV Tropes server (or the reader's patience).

It's not really clear why; it's just one of those things. Perhaps it's because eating is (almost) always an entirely pleasurable/joyous experience, but also mundane. Perhaps it's just because eating is such an everyday activity that making a ''song'' of it sounds ridiculous. Perhaps--again--it's just one of those things.
