** Some of [=McLean=]'s lyrics allegedly reference BobDylan (The Jester). Who, incidentally, is famous for his own well-known, mind-screwy song: "Desolation Row"... to name one of MANY in Dylan's catalog.

* Some of the music videos for Music/PoetsOfTheFall are really weird, but the best example has to be "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKk1u5RMTn4 Carnival of Rust]]", where a woman with a gas mask and a lollipop visits a dilapidated [[CircusOfFear Carnival of Fear]].

* Many {{Primus}} songs features a number of psychedelic and amusingly disturbing aspects.

* Shortly before their first hiatus in March 1980, post-punk band {{Wire}} became especially fond of doing this to their audiences when playing live. See TrueArtIsIncomprehensible for details.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/TheMarsVolta's entire style is based around this. For one, they allegedly got the titles from their album ''Bedlam In Goliath'' from a ouija board, and many of them appear to be near-random assortments of letters and various non-English words.

* Music/DonMcLean's song "American Pie" is a Mind-Screwy combination of imagery and references to other songs and historical events.

to:

* Music/DonMcLean's song "American Pie" is a Mind-Screwy combination of imagery and references to other songs and historical events. [=McLean=] did eventually auction off the original notes and lyrics for the song, which ended up providing a MindScrewdriver by explaining what each line was intended to be referencing.


Added DiffLines:

** The saga of Ziggy Stardust is vague and open-ended enough that, when put together into a narrative, can mean many different things. It doesn't help that Bowie's own personal, but unofficial interpretation of the whole thing is a rather bizarre CosmicHorrorStory.

* ''Soundtracks for the Blind'' by {{Swans}}. This double-CD behemoth [[TropeCodifier codified]] the PostRock genre [[UnbuiltTrope before there was a "Post Rock" genre to codify]]. It is also probably one of the greatest continuous Mind Screws in the history of rock music, as well as being a nigh-bottomless well of High Octane Nightmare Fuel. It is best explained as being a kind of [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin soundtrack to an imaginary movie]]. A very long, very weird movie. Directed by DavidLynch.
