* Bruce Springsteen: The Reagan campaign wanted to use Springsteen's "Born in the U.S.A.", despite it having a line that says "Sent me off to [[TheVietnamWar a foreign land]] / To go and kill the yellow man". There's an interview with the Boss where he basically says "I don't think the Republicans are actually listening to my music, especially not the ''Nebraska'' album." Hell, 90% of all the songs written by Mellencamp/Springsteen are all about how the Republicans are screwing over the working man. Yet their songs are the ones most likely to be heard at a blue collar/conservative event.

* Music/BenFolds' "Rockin' the Suburbs" was originally a profanity-laced TakeThat aimed at bad radio rock and [[EmoTeen whiny suburban teenagers]] who like it. In ''Film/OverTheHedge'', however, the lyrics instead mocked suburban banality in language suitable for a family film.

** Music/TheRollingStones' "Start Me Up" for MicrosoftWindows 95. Note the BrokenAesop variant here; the next line to the song, not appearing in the commercial itself, is "You make a grown man cry." Another line not used is "I can't compete", which [[IsntItIronic some snarkier types have found quite amusing]] in light of Microsoft's apparent monopolistic ambitions, coupled with notorious quality control problems (especially in the area of security).
