* Music/BetweenTheBuriedAndMe's "Arsonist" is a furious tirade against the Westboro Baptist Church.

** The Embrace That Smothers which theme is "the danger involved in organized religion." The songs therefore contain ideas that could be considered "anti-religious," which they share with AfterForever (Mark Jansen was a former member).

to:

* Astral Doors did a few of these. The most notable are the title track from ''Of the Son and the Father'', which is about the pedophilia scandals in the Catholic church; and "Pentecostal Bound" from ''New Revelation''. No points for guessing who the latter is attacking.

* Music/{{Edguy}} did some type 3 on their early albums, most notably the title track from Theater of Salvation and Down to the Devil from Hellfire Club. Addidtionally, Music/{{Avantasia}}, a Main/{{Supergroup}} formed by Edguy's lead singer's first two albums are Main/{{Rock Opera}} length examples. All of these carry the sentiment that religion prevents humanity from reaching their full potential, and the Avantasia example adds a condemnation of religious leaders' disregard for others in pursuit of power.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZeWPScnolo "Thank You God (For Fixing the Cataracts of Sam's Mum"]] is probably the ultimate example of Type 2.

to:

* Priestess' little-known B-side "Castle Dracula" has three verses, ''each of which seems to conform to one of the three types of RRS,'' but the very last verse is a barb directed at a "false prophet", suggesting the song is just a Type 3 and discusses the journey of one frustrated with religion who initially disavows God, then wonders if GodIsEvil before concluding He's not the problem, just someone claiming to work on His behalf. As the band never spoke about the song publicly, we may never know what its true meaning is.
