* "Return of the Giant Hogweed" should be {{Narm}} or NightmareRetardant due to being based on the invasion of a plant species. However, when you actually listen to it, it doesn't come out that way, due to the sheer [[LastNoteNightmare darkness of the ending]], what with its dissonance and proto-[[NewWaveOfBritishHeavyMetal NWOBHM]] galloping rhythms. "The Musical Box" from the same album can also qualify, what with its StalkerWithACrush lyrics and bloody backstory/ending.

Added DiffLines:

* The subject of wrongful imprisonment in "Inside And Out" is a real AdultFear. It is strongly implied that the man's actions were consensual, but that the parents of the girl he made out with have it in for him. The song states that the event took place in August '53, and that he has been out (as of 1977) for 20 years, meaning that he spent four years in prison and then was let out, likely due to insufficient evidence. Several summers pass where he tries to explain his story differently (most likely modifying his story to get a lesser sentence) and he eventually gets out, but the judge tells him that he's 'paid for his lies'. Then, 'with that behind you, you can't plan ahead' - he's been found (technically) innocent, but nobody will hire him. It's still however implied that they can imprison him again, regardless of his claims of innocence, if more 'evidence' turns up, and this time they definitely won't let him go. The effect symbolises the way the man is still paying for the crime he did not commit. It also highlights how sadistic some authority figures can be.

* Visually, many of Peter Gabriels costumes count, such as [[http://rymimg.com/lk/l/w/196d435df03184cdb14593a8d68c2422/3600723.jpg the Watcher Of The Skies]], [[http://api.ning.com/files/UUEeUWW5l*lv*jIcLd0j70qLK6n*-UUCZwvUdVg3RvVWwq-QEiUAR9-nZDZv8I4FoiIsJl1XC0E*v9QRA6ScL66k*gRSk3C6/slipperman.jpg the Slipperman]] from ''TheLambLiesDownOnBroadway'', and [[https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-jur5A0fpBgs/TYqtdpBPbtI/AAAAAAAAABM/2dlt1bMlEUA/s1600/still+9.jpg the Guaranteed Eternal Sanctuary Man]] from ''SuppersReady'' can send nightmares.

* Steve Hackett has an instrumental track on his debut solo album, ''Voyage Of The Acolyte'', sandwiched in between two gentle pieces, called "A Tower Struck Down". It is an aggressive, [[HellIsThatNoise increasingly chaotic and dissonant]] piece with persistant, distorted electric guitars and analog synths, [[spoiler: a sound effects JumpScare in the middle]], and [[spoiler: the sound of a [[ThoseWackyNazis Hitler rally]] of "Sieg Heil"s at the end]].

* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_OzuXh_n3E Mama]]". Mechanical drum machine? Check. Ominous music? Check. Big drumming finale, like in "In The Air Tonight"? Check. Phil almost doing a MetalScream? Check. Phil's EvilLaugh? Check. StalkerWithACrush [[ClingyJealousGirl Clingy Jealous Guy]] lyrics that would make [[ThePolice Sting]] proud? Check. Is there a HONF bingo?

* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3pxvSxv7O8M Snowbound]]" certainly qualifies for this trope. A method of "waste management" that would have done [[Series/TheSopranos Tony Soprano]] proud.
