* "Lookalike" from ''WesternAnimation/SonicTheHedgehogTheMovie''. It doesn't help that most of the lyrics make little sense.

* Early HardcoreTechno also used to feature unintelligible lyrics -- mostly frantic, excited, sped-up verses that were sung way too fast and slurred to be understood. The few times the lyrics were actually parsable, their meaning sometimes turned out to be gibberish too: for example, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJBRbT4dNtM "Blood of an English Muffin"]].

Added DiffLines:

* The opening lyric/chorus of "Gold" by Kiiara is indecipherable, with many people assuming that it's backwards (a la Music/MissyElliott), or just straight up gibberish. According to [[http://genius.com/8732076 Rap Genius]] and other sites, it's actually various lyrics from the song cut up and pasted together.

* Most (all?) of the new {{AutoTune}} rappers, lead by Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan, whose lyrical prowess could easily be mistaken for squeaky mumbling at best and pure gibberish at worst. The two's song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGt_JGHYEO4 Lifestyle]] is a prime example of this.

* Anything by the Cocteau Twins. Except on ''Four-Calendar Cafe'', on which Elizabeth Fraser was uncharacteristically comprehensible for long stretches. Fandom was split on the merits of this.

Added DiffLines:

* Most Music/PaleSaints songs are rife with this, particularly on ''The Comforts Of Madness''. Mostly averted on ''Slow Buildings'', however.

* Music/SpawnOfPossession is an amusing example: the indecipherable part actually comes from [[MotorMouth how fast the lyrics are being growled]] than said growls themselves.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Shenmue}}'' has the Tomato Mart jingle[[note]]"Anata no conveni Tomato Maato!", lit., "Your convenience store Tomato Mart"[[/note]], which especially applies for those not familiar with Japanese, resulting in a cross between this trope and {{Mondegreen}}.
