* The 88th Annual UsefulNotes/{{Academy Award}}s had a campaign with the tagline, "We all dream in gold", and commercials with Music/ImagineDragons' "Dream" playing in the background. These commercials pair up inspirational footage of past winners with...a song warning against getting caught up in selfish and probably unreachable dreams of fame and fortune, which could leave the dreamer oblivious to real-world problems. Indeed, despite the ad's best efforts to edit out the lyrics that make this lesson especially explicit, the line "We all are living in a dream / But life ain't what it seems" somehow made it in.

* Music/DavidBowie has suffered from this '''a lot''' -- ever since his work first got mass media attention. In 2008, all the trailers for ''Film/{{Milk}}'' (a biographical movie about Harvey Milk, the first openly gay person to be elected to public office in California, as a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors) used his song "Queen Bitch" from ''Music/HunkyDory'', which raises unfortunate questions about how the marketing team felt about the film's subject. Then there was the jeans commercial that put videos of masculine men to the song "The Jean Genie" from the same album. The only appropriate response is "You're all aware the song is about gay sex, right?"

* Animal Planet once used Men at Work's "Who Can It Be Now", a song about a guy who is paranoid and/or being stalked, to advertise a dog show. They just used the [[TitleOnlyChorus chorus]], and it was in the context of "who has what it takes?", but still.

* In the pilot episode of ''WesternAnimation/AllenGregory'', after the titular character meets his principal for the first time, he starts fantasizing about himself having all sorts of romantic encounters with her. This fantasy sequence is set to the chorus of Music/PhilCollins' "In the Air Tonight"...the very same "In the Air Tonight" that, in its verses, features lyrics like "Well, if you told me you were drowning/I would not lend a hand", and, for extra points, was inspired by Collins' divorce from his first wife.

* [[KingCrimson Greg]] [[EmersonLakeAndPalmer Lake]]'s "I Believe In Father Christmas" is faithfully trotted out by radio stations each December for their "all-Christmas-music" programming, despite the fact that the song mocks the holiday rather bitterly.

* Some might ring in the New Year with [[Music/{{ABBA}} ABBA]]'s "Happy New Year". While the song has an Auid Lang Syne feel, the song is actually about things that are wrong in the world and how at the end of the celebration, nothing will have changed. -->The man is a fool, -->and he thinks he'll be okay. -->Dragging on, feet of clay. -->Never knowing he's astray. -->Keeps on going anyway. -->Seems to me now, -->that the dreams we had before are all dead, -->nothing more than confetti on the floor.

* The driving-lesson montage in Disney/WreckItRalph set to... Rhianna's "Shut Up and Drive". That song [[IntercourseWithYou isn't about motoring]]... * RegularShow used Filter's "Hey Man Nice Shot", a song about Bud Dwyer's televised suicide, for a basketball scene. The lyric "A man has gun/Hey man have fun" could even clearly be heard.

* Disney used "Semi-Charmed Life" by Third Eye Blind in its ads for ''WesternAnimation/TheTiggerMovie''. That's right, a song about ''doing crystal meth'' to promote a ''Franchise/WinnieThePooh'' movie! Unsurprisingly, people took notice and had Disney play a different song over the ads.
