* Music/TheBand's "Chest Fever": "'She's stoned' said the Swede / And the Moon Calf agreed / But I'm like a viper in shock / With my eyes in the clock." The lyrics were made up on the spot as "filler", just picking random rhyming phrases that fit the right number of syllables, with the intent to go back later and rewrite them. But they never did and ended up just keeping the filler as the actual lyrics.

* Music/KanyeWest's [[AWildRapperAppears rapping bridge]] in Music/KatyPerry's E.T., while mostly coherent, also contains lyrics such as "Tryin' to bathe my ape in your Milky Way" and "Pockets on Franchise/{{Shrek}}, rockets on deck."

** Before Big & Rich, Big Kenny also did this a lot on his 1998 solo album (which was not released until 2005, after which Big & Rich had become famous). Case in point with "Candy Colored Glasses":
-->Oh the birds are dancing sky is turning ebony and gray\\
The trees are leaning swaying to the rhythm of the day\\
Horses running from the thunder rolling by\\
Voices screaming from their nowhere looking eyes\\
Looking at the world through these\\
Candy colored glasses that I'm wearing\\
Staring, noticing that everything is\\
Just the way I'd like for it to be\\
So please knock before you walk into my dream

* A lot of songs by Half Man Half Biscuit don't even try to make sense, but most of ''Four Skinny Indie Kids'' sounds like the singer randomly flipping through a dictionary.

* Music/{{Metric}} embraced WordSaladLyrics straight out the gate - the opening song "IOU" on their first studio album ''Old World Underground, Where Are You Now?'' has these opening lines:
-->Old World Underground, where are you now?\\
Subtract my age from the mileage on my speeding heart, credit cards.\\
Accelerate, accumulate,\\
Looked for you downtown.

** His take on one of the FullmetalAlchemist openings:
--> Come cologne, sue my poo
--> Sue your hickey sue narwhal
--> Classy dead, homo gay wash it my son!
--> Whoa!
--> Sack of shit, so sue gay men
--> Dad'll eat, sue it all!
--> Come and wash all that Billy hotdog meat!
