* The Argentinian humor group LesLuthiers has several songs specifically created to sound as foreign language songs, but they really have nonsensical lyrics, usually in Spanish. Among these are ''Oi Gadoñaya'' (presumably Russian, but really absurd Spanish) and ''Gloria Hossanna, that's the question'' (nonsense yuxtaposed Latin words). They even have an instrumental song, ''Miss Lilly Higgins sings shimmy in Mississippi's spring'' which includes [[http://youtu.be/uAVVPI72qVE?t=1m26s a section of "scat-like" sounds]]. They really are (again) nonsensical Spanish phrases:

* Many Soul Coughing songs seem to just consist of cool-sounding nonsense. Which may possibly be explained due to the lyricist's fondness for...[[WatchItStoned recreational pharmaceuticals]].

* Glassjaw is certainly fond of this trope, with {{Word Salad Title}}s thrown in for good measure.

** The R.E.M. song "Losing My Religion" also has bizarre lyrics; WordOfGod declares it to be a song about obsession and unrequited love, although good luck figuring that out by listening to it.

** The R.E.M. song "Losing My Religion" also has bizarre lyrics; WordOfGod declares it to be a song about obsession and unrequited love, although good luck figuring that out by listening to it. The name is also a Southernism for "losing my temper", which helps explain a lot but isn't immediately obvious.

** Since they started their ever-increasing tendency to go more Pop on every album since 2013, this is one of the major criticisms. On ''Save Rock and Roll,'' this was mostly due to mixed metaphors that Pete Wentz wrote in some of the songs. ''American Beauty/American Psycho'' has more of these, particularly in 'Uma Thurman,' a song they specifically written because some people suggested to them that the ''Munsters'' theme that they had ready to sample reminded them of ''Film/PulpFiction'' and ''Film/KillBill'', with Uma's roles in those movies. Then some of the singles on ''Mania'' definitely have this, with them directly name dropping Nikki Sixx, but then referencing Britney Spears' song 'Oops I Did It Again' not two lines later, and some the choruses of their more recent songs not being directly relating to the stories of their songs, but more so being a part of the song because they sound nice. An example from 'Uma Thurman':
