Added DiffLines:

* Music/{{Edguy}} has some songs that definitely fit this trope. The weirdest might be [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWR1yzUnaGE "Judas at the Opera"]]. It only (kinda but not really) makes sense once you realize the band wrote it in response to critics who thought the band was "too silly" and "not serious enough". So they made this.

* The infamous {{Vocaloid}} PV ''Tower of Sunz''. Just try to explain [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6P7uUlQOENA this]] load of bull honkey. ''You can't.''

* ''Every'' SoundHorizon album. ''Roman'' is especially infamous for this, but even the seemingly straightfoward ''Märchen'' album starts getting more and more confusing once you start thinking about it. (is Märchen RewritingReality, or [[UnreliableNarrator is he just telling fanciful revenge stories loosely based on depressing happenings?]] Is he in a PlatonicCave? [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane Magic or Mudane]]? Does Idolfried Ehrenberg actually have any significance to the story, or did [[TeasingCreator Revo]] just put him in to mess with the audience? Märchen is Idolfried - [[LukeIAmYourFather and by extension the Well Girl's father]] - isn't he?...)

* Probably the most confusing music video ever made in Russia: "Vremya i Steklo" - [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n3Go8ub9a1k "Imya 505" ("Name 505")]]. It almost reaches "Pon Pon Pon" level of crazy! HotterAndSexier Pon Pon Pon, to be precise.

* Some of Music/PoetsOfTheFall's music videos 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 [[PostApocalypticGasMask gas mask]] and a lollipop visits a dilapidated [[CircusOfFear Carnival of Fear]].

* ''Soundtracks for the Blind'' by Music/{{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.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etxd0z5TfiA The music video]] for the Music/{{Madness}} song "(Waiting for the) Ghost Train" is a fairly mild example. It features the band dressed in suits that look like newspapers, a random [[UsefulNotes/TheLondonUnderground London Underground]] sign for a station that doesn't exist, a man dressed as a frog appearing out of nowhere and disappearing just as suddenly, lead singer Suggs wearing a succession of [[CoolHat funny hats]] for no good reason, the saxophonist dressed as a Japanese man with angel wings being thrown out of a plane and the drummer's head appearing from a pot of baked beans, among other truly weird things. In spite of this bizarreness, the song's meant to be about [[TheApartheidEra apartheid]] in UsefulNotes/SouthAfrica.

* Just try to figure out the plot of any CoheedAndCambria song without the comics. Especially anything from ''Second Stage Turbine Blade'' or ''Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Part One''. Go on, I'll wait.

* BritneySpears has a video where she sees a video of someone complaining about something she did, which made many people mad; then she decided to do it, but at the end the same video is played, at the same time, but she is no longer there to witness it.
