** Music/SmashMouth is this level, except for some of their songs on their debut album Fush Yu Mang ("Flo" and "Walking on the Sun" which are both at a 5, being surprisingly political songs for a band best known for making songs for Shrek.)

* Music/In The Aeroplane over the sea averages around here. There's no gory imagery or swearing, but the sexual imagery and themes of the holocaust push it up here.

**Some songs would be a 4, such as "King of Carrot Flowers Pt. 1" or "In the Aeroplane Over The Sea" if the lyrics weren't so unsettling and strange.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRsh_vbaVvY The opening]] for ''Manga/ThreeLeavesThreeColors'' [[note]](This level is '''rare''' for a straight SchoolgirlSeries!) [[/note]]. Behind the [[EarWorm inviting and catchy]] melody, [[LyricalDissonance the lyrics actually refer to Youko's maddening depression from intense loneliness]]. The last two stanzas make [[TearJerker the pain]] very apparent upon reading them.

--> This never-ending torment
--> Has become a part of my everyday life.
--> Sobbing, Screaming,
--> My pleas fall on deaf ears.

--> Is this my fate?
--> Is this my punishment?
--> If that's the case,
--> Maybe it would be better [[DrivenToSuicide just to die]].

* Music/Meshuggah tends to fall towards the higher end of the scale; not as high as the similarly heavy bands who tend to write outright {{Gorn}}, but still fairly high. [[http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/meshuggah/newmilleniumcyanidechrist.html New Millenium Cyanide Christ]] is an example of a song of theirs residing at this level due to it being a song about a man giving up his humanity to become a [[DarkMessiah messiah of sorts]], with the painful process of transformation being described in some detail.
