* Music/JohnnyCash wrote some shockingly dark songs. For example, "25 Minutes To Go" is sung in the first person by a man counting down the minutes until he's hanged.
--> Well they're building a gallows outside my cell I've got 25 minutes to go\\
And the whole town's waitin' just to hear me yell I've got 24 minutes to go\\
Well they gave me some beans for my last meal I've got 23 minutes to go\\
But nobody asked me how I feel I've got 22 minutes to go

* Music/Throbbing Gristle's Slug Bait, which is basically a home invasion nightmare that ends with a pregnant woman's child getting cut out and mutilated, among other things.
* Many songs in Eminem's discography easily fit in here. Songs such as "Kim", which describes him, in vivid detail, killing his ex-wife (The song's namesake, Kim). Another example would be "Guilty Conscience" which involves Eminem and Dr. Dre acting out as the conscience of various characters. The consciences argue over different things such as whether not characters should commit murder, rape, and other crimes.

* Biz Markie's ''Just A Friend'' has something of a downer in the lyrics (being about unrequited love) but it's effectively a joke song where the lyrics are sung as [[LargeHam over-the-top]] and [[HollywoodToneDeaf tone-deaf]] as possible, putting it here.

The name has a certain [[JustForPun punny quality]] to it. After all, this is Mohs' '''Scale''' of Lyrical Hardness. [[DontExplainTheJoke Get it? Because of the musical scale?]] Ahem.

* 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.

* Old school ''narcocorridos'', Mexican folk songs that tell stories of drug smuggling and organized crime life, usually rank around this level of hardness: while they tend to merely stick to the facts with a small bit of romanticism, these facts also usually involve gun fights, passional crimes, lots of drugs, and organized crime being portrayed in a neutral or positive light. They have since mutated into even harder songs -- the ''corridos alterados'' subgenre actually ranks at level 11 and beyond.



* The so-called "unhinged corridos" ''(corridos alterados)'', a subgenre of the traditional Mexican narcocorridos[[note]]songs that tell stories of drug smuggling and organized crime life[[/note]], usually rank somewhere between 10 and 11, with the most extreme examples being basically songs about how awesome it is to behead random civilians and start random shootings in the busiest intersection during rush hour just for fun and without ever getting punished because your closest business partners are El Z-40 and the President.
