* Parodied in Music/TheArcticMonkeys' "A Certain Romance", where the singer is complaining about a bunch of violent, drunken chavs, and surmising that if anyone pointed out to them how vulgar they are they wouldn't take the blindest bit of notice. It then goes on to admit that the singer's ''own'' group of friends are also drunken, brawling louts who "might overstep the line, but you just cannot get angry in the same way".

** On ''Music/{{Doppelganger}}'', "Do Big Boys Cry", they wonder: "Do big boys cry? / Are they a step beyond / Shouting ‘bout right / But living wrong?"



* Metallica got famous by tape trading their cassette demo "No Life Til Leather", which landed them a record deal. They also were known to allow fans to record, visual and audio, their sets and circulate them freely. But the moment they got big and started making real money off their music they sued Napster over doing the same things that got them their fiercely loyal fan base to begin with.
* Several songs on Music/MichaelJackson's ''[=HIStory=]'' have him railing against injustice and persecution, both of people at large and himself specifically, as he was being hounded by the mass media at the time over child molestation allegations. In "Childhood", a key lyric is "Before you judge me/Try hard to love me" -- i.e., don't be so quick to condemn based on assumptions. On the same album is "D.S.", a song about Tom Sneddon, the district attorney who ultimately headed up both of the investigations of Jackson's behavior with children. Sample lyric: "You think he brother with the [=KKK=]?/I know his mother never taught him right anyway"...what was that about '''judging''' people again, Mike?
** In ''Film/{{Moonwalker}}'', he included the song "Leave Me Alone" which railed against the public/tabloid attention he was always hounded with -- in the middle of a film that can best be described as a 90-minute commercial for the Music/MichaelJackson brand.
