* Real life examples are incredibly subjective, but anyone who has met Kristin Hersh or follows her Facebook page or Twitter account knows she really, really fits this trope.
* Music/AliceCooper's No More Mr. Nice Guy is about Cooper throwing down the gauntlet after his mother's church group reacted with disgust to his onstage antics. He contends he was actually a Nice Guy...but not anymore.

* Dave Williams of Music/{{Drowning Pool}}, despite his band persona. Which makes his death all the more tragic.
* Music/RingoStarr. While [[Music/TheBeatles the other guys]] were sniping viciously at each other during the White Album sessions, likely taking their stress out on him as well, he got along great with all of them -- and the one time he ''did'' [[MinorInsultMeltdown snap]], all he really did was go on a few weeks' vacation with his family and [[SomewhereSong write a sweet song about octopuses]] to blow off steam.
* Music/DaveGrohl is often called "the nicest man in rock 'n' roll".

* Paris from ''RomeoAndJuliet''. The poor guy legitimately has no idea that his betrothed, Juliet, is in love with another man, and when she fakes her death, he visits her grave, intending to return every night. Even Romeo feels sorry for him after [[spoiler:he kills him in desperate self-defense]].
