* The song "Helpless, helpless" by Music/{{Camouflage}} has the line "Party leaders try to fog your senses" which can be very easily [[ {{Mondegreen}} Misheard]] as "Party leaders try to FUCK your senses"

That's the hand I use...well, never mind.

* Music/{{POD}}, a band known for overtaking Stryper as the TropeCodifier for ChristianRock bands attaining mainstream success in the late 90's[=/=]/[=/=]early 00's, is in general fairly brash lyrically in comparison to other Christian rock bands, albeit mild in comparison to secular bands sharing P.O.D.'s NuMetal designation. The band controversially sidestepped the Christian rock radar entirely by including a PrecisionFStrike in the song "I Am," appearing on the album ''Murdered Love'' (heavily edited in most versions of the album). Before expressly including a profanity in one song's lyrics, however, the band got several mild vulgarities past the radar, including "hell yeah" and "I don't give a damn" on "If It Wasn't for You" and "Kaliforn-Eye-A," respectively. More explicit (yet somehow more often overlooked) examples of vulgarity in P.O.D.'s lyrics include the line "we tore the roof off this mother" (presumably an abbreviation of "motherfucker") from "Lights Out" and the entirety of "On the Grind," an ominous excursion into GangstaRap territory in which a guest rapper brags of his ability to "break the hymen on ears" and explicit references to street violence and pimping appear elsewhere. Finally, the pre-major label P.O.D. song "Live and Die" samples the line "And here's the plot: takin' niggaz out with a flurry of buckshots" from Music/{{NWA}}'s "Gangsta Gangsta."

* EricClapton's "Cocaine" (originally written and recorded by J.J Cale) is [[RefugeInAudacity shamelessly]] about, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin cocaine]] and how fun it is. Clapton describes it as an anti-drug song. He has called the song "quite cleverly anti-cocaine". How in the world it is anti-cocaine with those lyrics, you tell me.

* Dionysos' entire album, ''Jack et la mécanique du cur'', is absolutely ''full'' of this. One song in particular, "Madamoiselle Cle", has a pun, which, [[BilingualBonus when translated]], mentioned a RagingStiffie. This same song mentioned the female character, [[SomethingAboutARose Miss Acacia]], making 'something other than [[Literature/{{Pinocchio}} his nose]]' [[SomethingElseAlsoRises get longer]], while another song, ''Flamme à lunettes'' (which itself is a pun on the French phrase 'femme à lunettes', which basically means 'promiscuous girl with glasses') mentions him [[IntercourseWithYou taking off her clothes with his teeth]]. The kicker? Both of these songs were included in a ''film adaptation'' of a book, titled ''The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart'', which itself was based on the album. The film was given the French equivalent of a [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids PG-13 rating]]. Parents who [[FreudWasRight get the puns]] might have been secretly praying their children were still innocent. Dionysos are masters of this trope.

* Music/LadyGaga's "Poker Face" is even confirmed by WordOfGod as being about the singer's bisexuality/mixed feelings in the bedroom with her boyfriend (hence the chorus), though this is easily passed up by listeners as the song is initially wrapped up in DoubleEntendre-laden Texas Hold 'Em metaphors. She also has a habit of singing [[{{Mondegreen}} Mondegreens]] that are a wee bit naughtier than the official lyrics and getting away with it. Music/LadyGaga also confirms that muffin meant [[AllMenArePerverts exactly]] [[FreudWasRight what]] you thought [[UnusualEuphemism it meant]].

** "Cosmic Thing" is implied to be about male masturbation, especially during the line "shake it till the butter melts"

** "Cosmic Thing" is implied to be about male masturbation, especially during the line "shake it till the butter melts"melts", although the more conventional interpretation (shaking your behind) is there too ("shake your honeybuns!") along with a ShoutOut to President Bill Clinton and his reputation ("don't let it rest on the President's desk!")

*Garth Brooks' "That Summer" has, without being at all explicit, is loaded with innuendo, as well as a very well-done chorus referencing the singer and his older partner having sex.

* Music/{{Aerosmith}} may have inadvertently pulled off a very difficult version of this. The beginning of the fourth verse of "Sweet Emotion" is "Standin' in the front, just shakin' your ---". Yes, an innocent example, but WHERE this went is amazing ... when the Disney company licensed the music for Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, they just happened to pick this line ... uncensored... That's right, even though it's on an attraction not meant for kids, you can clearly hear this word on the ride. The best part? It's a RE-RECORDED VERSION.

** "Pretty Fly for a Rabbi" contains the line "the parents pay the mohel, and he gets to keep the tip." Which certainly seems innocuous enough... unless of course you know what a mohel actually ''does''. Here's a hint:[[spoiler:look at the entry for "Hardware Store."]]

** "My Own Eyes" mentions a stripper [[BeastialityIsDepraved kissing a duck]], along with some more mild references to drugs and alcohol.
