* Many of the songs by LemonDemon have a very mind screwy lyrics, such as "The Saga of You, Confused Destroyer of Planets" or "Your Evil Shadow Has a Cup of Tea".

** There have been many analyses of this classic song. One of the best is one of the earliest, [[http://sparkbbs.dreamwiz.com/cgi-bin/rbbsview.cgi?section=WAREHOUSE&start=3&pos=288 by Bob Dearborn]]. One of my favorites is the very Mind-Screw-friendly site [[http://www.imissamericanpie.com/ IMISSAMERICANPIE.COM]].

* ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLrnkK2YEcE Frontier Psychiatrist]]'' by Music/TheAvalanches. The song is very strange, with lyrics and backing track all comprised from samples from a wide range of sources. The real stars of the show are the visuals. Sheet ghosts, a turtleguy, a monkey drummer, lots of old people, a skeleton with a golden eyeball, a giant bird, and rapping psychiatrists. You'll need a therapist to recover from the trauma of this mindfuck.

* The music video for Fatboy Slim's ''Weapon of Choice''. Christopher Walken dancing around a Los Angeles hotel is strange enough in its own right. But ChristopherWalken ''flying'' around a Los Angeles hotel? Woah...

* Doseone (perhaps best known for his involvement in {{cLOUDDEAD}}) was an ordinary battle rapper once upon a time. Nowadays his lyrics tend to form weird, tightly-interlocked cadences that may or may not actually mean anything in particular.

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.
