* A commercial for the UsefulNotes/NintendoSwitch version of ''VideoGame/JustDance 2018'' has a woman dancing to "Despacito" by Luis Fonsi ft. Daddy Yankee with her friends, parents, and apparently her grandparents. The problem is, though many non-Spanish speakers don't realize this, the song isn't [[IntercourseWithYou the type of song you'd probably want to dance to with your mom]].

* A staple of British Halloween compilation albums is the Specials' ''Ghost Town''. They evidentally don't look past the title of the song and look at the lyrics - it's about urban decay, deindustrialisation, unemployment and violence in inner cities.

(That being said, the reason it's stuck around in this usage for ''so long'' is because it is a ''very'' ghostly sounding song. As in, an instrumental version could be used as Haunted House music without any other changes.)

* In RumbleRoses, the song Yankee Rose is used for the entrance music of a character and the intro. The character is Dixie Clements, a Texan, who would probably punch you if you called her a Yankee.(Plus she's a tad more modest than the lyrics describe, but then again considering the game...) Somewhat justified because outside the USA, most countries(including Japan, where the game is made) use Yankee to mean any American. Still, one can't help but think they just looked at the Rose in the title...

* ''Series/AmericanIdol'' had the Season 8 winner Kris Allen perform on stage accompanied by a montage of Haiti relief efforts. The song? ''Music/LetItBe''. Not to mention his fellow ''Idol'' alumni Jennifer Hudson, who sang that same song for the "Hope For Haiti" telethon. Also, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Let_It_Be_%28Ferry_Aid_song%29 these people]].

* {{UsefulNotes/BBC}} family game show ''Series/TheGenerationGame'' used Music/EmersonLakeAndPalmer's ''Karn Evil 9'' (specifically, "First Impression Part Two") for the title music and music stings. One wonders if the Beeb knew about the car-bomb lyrics or the "seven virgins and a mule" bit.

* Creator/{{Disney}} hired Music/BowlingForSoup to redo "I Melt With You" by Music/ModernEnglish; it has worked its way back into advertising culminating in Hershey's Chocolate using it for a Kiss commercial with a mother and child. All of this ignoring the fact the first two lines are "Moving forward using all my breath/Making love to you was never second best." Yeah, sweet sentiment there, Hershey's.

* British pharmacy chain store Boots' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8Ylkpi8k8Y Christmas advert in 2013]] featured a boy buying presents for the special people in his life, one of which is for a girl he presumably has a crush on (calling her "the fittest girl in Year 10"[[labelnote:notes for non-British readers]]"Fit" in this sense equates to physical attractiveness; Year 10 is the one you take when you're 14/15[[/labelnote]]). The music used? Bronski Beats' ''Smalltown Boy'' - a song about a man being rejected by his family for being homosexual.

* WebOriginal/{{Endzone}} ([[http://endling.deviantart.com/journal/13251694/#journal see here]]) and WebOriginal/LawOfTalos ([[http://sins-of-angels.deviantart.com/gallery/?q=law+of+talos#/d3wkfua see here]]) feature a character known as the Chimbley Sweep, a young Victorian chimney sweep who was inspired by Music/TheDecemberists' song "The Chimbley Sweep". Which is mostly perfectly okay, but one can't help but wonder if the creator fully listened to [[{{Shotacon}} the worrying implications in the last verse]] ("O lonely urchin," the widow cried/"I've not [[UnusualEuphemism been swept]] since the day my husband died ...") ...
