* The lyrics to Music/{{BT}}'s "Never Gonna Come Back Down" are mostly complete nonsense, courtesy of Mike Doughty. The song ends with BT himself laughing hysterically at Doughty's ramblings.
---> '''BT:''' *laughing* Fucking excellent, man!
---> '''Doughty:''' That's what I do for a living.

* "Summer Girls" by LFO opens with the lyrics "New Kids On The Block got a lotta hits, Chinese food makes me sick" and just gets weirder from there. Although, it really falls more under NonSequitur Lyrics[=/=]LyricalShoehorn overlapping with PainfulRhyme (rhyming "hornet" with "sonnet," for example. It's purported that the song is a demo that blew up and that nonsensical lyrics were merely placeholders for lyrics that would make sense.

* "Oh Industry" by BetteMidler, lyrics to which may be found [[http://www.stlyrics.com/lyrics/beaches/ohindustry.htm here.]] Great song, but... "the mud's prophecy"? "Hydrogen fuel, it burns so clean; throbs in the veins, a mother lovin' machine"? Whaaa?

* The anime ''WeissKreuz'' has image songs for all the major characters. "Spiritualized", the song for psychic Schuldig, is like this, likely to illustrate the [[AMindIsATerribleThingToRead chaotic feeling of touching unshielded minds]].

* Creator/MichaelNesmith's 1967-68 [[TheMonkees Monkees]] songs, which also usually had [[WordSaladTitle inscrutable titles that appeared nowhere in the lyrics:]] "Daily Nightly", "Auntie's Municipal Court", "Tapioca Tundra", "Writing Wrongs", "Circle Sky", "Highway 99 with Melange".
** Also bandmate Creator/MickeyDolenz' "Randy Scouse Git" ("Alternative Title" in the UK, where they knew what "randy Scouse git" meant; Mickey heard it on Series/SteptoeAndSon and thought the words were inherently funny).

** Music/TheyMightBeGiants songs in general. They [[EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory seem to mean something]], but [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible good luck figuring out what.]].
