* Quite possibly the TropeNamer (although not the first instance by at least 28 years): the last song on the second side of Music/PinkFloyd's ''Music/TheWall'' is "Goodbye Cruel World", which - while not a suicide note - is a final message from the main character to the world before cutting all his emotional ties and going behind the Wall.

* A decent number of TheSmiths and later, Morrissey songs read as excellent suicide notes.

* 'Stan' from {{Eminem}} has someone try to record one of these in anger.
* The lyrics to BillyJoel's "Tomorrow is Today" are actually based on his ''own'' suicide note from when he tried to kill himself by drinking furniture polish in 1970.

* At the end of Season One of ''{{Soap}}'' Chester tries to write a suicide note when he decides to commit suicide (PlayedForLaughs mind) because [[spoiler:Jessica is about to be arrested for Peter's murder and he's about to lose pretty much everything (money and home, etc.)]] but he couldn't figure out the correct spelling of "suicide" and guessed that everybody would get the picture when they found him dead over a piece of kitchen roll with writing on it (because he couldn't find any paper).

** A somewhat straighter example is the title track of their following album ''The Final Cut'', which sounds like a suicide note, and ends with the protagonist about to slash his wrists, when the phone rings, causing him to lose his nerve.

The suicide note. The final explanation for why one is shuffling off this mortal coil, quitting the earthly sphere, leaping off to join the choir invisible. The composition of such a note - rife with anguish, despair, and turmoil - can take a while; this may, happily, lead to an InterruptedSuicide JustInTime. Instead of writing things down, the victim will leave behind a VideoWill. It could even be part of the elaborate facade involved in FakingTheDead or covering up [[TheCoronerDothProtestTooMuch a murder]]. In a murder mystery, it's often found to be forged in some way by our local AmateurSleuth. The lack of a suicide note will immediately and in all cases prompt law enforcement to suspect that the death is not a suicide even if suicide appears obvious; in this case, the real cause of death will usually be homicide, accident, or natural causes.
