** The early Music/PinkFloyd single "Candy And A Currant Bun" was originally written as "Let's Roll Another One"; The BBC objected to the obvious drug reference of the title (as well as lyrics like "I'm high, don't try to spoil my fun"). The recorded version changed these lyrics, but somehow ''also'' slipped in "Ooh don't talk with me / please just fuck with me".

The recorded version changed these lyrics, but somehow ''also'' slipped in "Ooh don't talk with me / please just fuck with me". Syd Barrett did slur the offending word a bit, making it sound more like "fock", whereas in "Let's Roll Another One" he was more clearly singing "please just ''walk'' with me".

** During the fade out at the end of "Phony Calls", Al sneaks in the line "But you're just a pain in the ass" at literally the last possible moment.

Added DiffLines:

** The band's hit "Tonight, Tonight, Tonight" is about a drug addict trying to score. It's not even particularly subtle about it. It was later used in an advert for Michelob beer (which was a big sponsor for one of the band's tours), which could be interpreted as sending the message that beer drinkers are drug addicts. They also have several pretty blatant IntercourseWithYou tracks, most notably "Mama", which is confirmed by WordOfGod as being about a [[StalkerWithACrush creepy teenager]]'s [[ObsessionSong obsession]] with a much older prostitute. Other IntercourseWithYou songs performed by the band, such as "Counting Out Time" and "The Lamia" (both from ''Music/TheLambLiesDownOnBroadway''), weren't big hits in the same way, though that's likely more because they were simply too weird for the mainstream than because of their content.

* The Music/ViolentFemmes did this a ''lot''. From "36-24-36", which spoke of a woman being the perfect measurements and them wanting to bang her, to "Gimme The Car", which was about getting a girl drunk, high and then banging her, to the "Country Death Song", which involved the voice of it pushing his youngest daughter into a bottomless pit and then hanging himself in shame...
* Music/TheSmiths song "A Rush And A Push And The Land Is Ours" contains the line "you're still a young man/so phone me, phone me, phone me", but Morrissey enunciates it so that it sounds like "fuck me."

shame... And, of, course, their best known song, "Blister in the Sun", is about ADateWithRosiePalms.

* The lyric sheet for Music/{{Garbage}}'s psycho breakup song "Vow" (possibly one of the most brutal, vengeance-soaked, unhinged breakup songs ever written) includes the phrase "I came to knock you up, I came to break you down" in the chorus. If you listen to the actual track, however, it doesn't quite sound like that, especially as the song makes a lot more sense with "fuck" in the first clause. (Though Shirley Manson (aka The Creepiest Woman In Rock)'s delivery ratchets the nastiness up to 11 all by itself...)

** For a song so outrageously blunt as The Bad Touch (yeah, the [[RefrainFromAssuming Discovery Channel song]]), it's amazing how the only censored song in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xat1GVnl8-k the music video]] is 'doggie'. Yeah: doggie.

** There's A Moon In The Sky (Called The Moon) - When Fred sings the line "can't get no atmosphere tonight", the girls clearly sing 'can't get no fuckin term tonight' in the background. This line is not printed in the official lyrics.
** Dirty Back Road is about doing it 'doggy style'.
** Legal Tender is about counterfeiting money, and its upbeat music makes it seem like a good thing to do.
** Cosmic Thing is implied to be about male masturbation, especially during the line "shake it till the butter melts"
** Deviant Ingredient is about drunk sex.

** Monster "There's a monster in my pants" - pretty obvious.

** Wave is about sex and the buildup towards an orgasm "Get as wet as we can get"
** What I Want "You pulled me off, and it felt good".

* Music/{{Voltaire}}'s song, ''The Dirtiest Song that Ain't'' is about this trope, though whether it will ever actually get past the radar is doubtful considering how heavy the implications are.

* 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.

* Stupify by Music/{{Disturbed}} prominently features the singer screaming '''FUCK''' at the top of his lungs [[ClusterFBomb in nearly every verse]]. Despite this, most radio stations and day-time TV running the video have decided that the shrill squaking of the words was just incomprehensible enough to go uncensored (ironically, "Shit out of '''LUCK'''" still managed to be blanked out of the radio-edit). The song even made it as a RockBand dowloadable by passing the lyric off as [[SingingSimlish Simlish]], making Disturbed the only band in the game to manage full-on cussing (GreenDay would be a close second for Longview's drawn-out "Shiiiii~", mentioned below).

* ''The Three Shadows, Part II'' by Bauhaus contains the line, "To your faces, and [[OedipusComplex Rex Complexes]], riddle my breast, full of the oppressed pus." The song is an anti-capitalist protest song, and the Rex Complexes bit is a seemingly polite way of calling someone something much worse.
