* 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.

** 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]].

* 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.

* 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.

* 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.
