* Music/{{Journey}}: Remember from earlier on the list, "Yummy Yummy Yummy"? Erm, well...It gets taken [[UpToEleven up to eleven]] with "Homemade Love". Oh gosh...It's just so...Okay, here! Just flipping read it!:http://songmeanings.com/songs/view/3530822107858555041/ Here, listen to it!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYbArdRzqOU [[PunctuatedForEmphasis Dirtiest. Journey song. EVER.]] (Somebody ask Steve, Neal, or "Smitty" about it. Let the laughter and blushing ensue.)
** There's also "Walks Like A Lady"---well, erm, at least in one live version (I do believe from a show in Houston); Steve sang this line: "Oh she walks so good, she walks so nice...Oh baby, baby...I think we'll do it twice..." [[FlatWhat WHAT?...?]]
** Oh, and "Just The Same Way". In the first verse, Gregg Rolie supposedly says "Everyday we will fly", but it's completely obvious that he says "Everyday we will [[PrecisionFStrike FUCK]]". That's riiiiiight... If it's not though, then YOU can let us know, Mr. Rolie.
** From Steve Perry's "For The Love of Strange Medicine", there's "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvCwyJj584M Can't Stop]]", which has a few subtle things in it (Just check the Journey page for more info). Like, um, "Talk real nice/You know, just a little bit of that, uh sugar and spice/Some cutchie-coo"; and the moan says it all...Now, uh, run that last last line through your head again, but now with THIS in mind: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgoVCx3ajYg&list=PLB6DB4D01058BA670&index=5 Well? I'll give you a minute. Got it? Yeah. That's right. You may be right. Go and listen to the song again, I dare you. [[ShmuckBait Go ahead, go listen to it if you don't believe me...~]]

* 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 (Music/GreenDay would be a close second for Longview's drawn-out "Shiiiii~", mentioned below).

* ''Woah'' boy. It's truly a wonder how the song 'Hey Mister' by Custom got radio play, especially considering it comes from Canada. Even if it's censored, it still has lines such as
--> Hey Mister how'd it get so bad
--> You raised her so well
--> And now she's calling me dad
--> In the back seat naked of a new Volkswagen
--> The perfect little gift for high school graduation.
The singer's PerishingAltRockVoice does not help.

* In the video for Junior Senior's ''Move your feet'', there's a VisualInnuendo scene where [[ItMakesSenseIncontext rtotally plastered animated squirrel]] has an hallucination about a champagne bottle and a champagne glass... [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPlQpGeTbIE where the bottle "explodes" and its white contents fill the glass]] in a way that [[DoesThisRemindYouOAnything looks very suggestive]]... The band probably got away with it just because the video was made with pixel animation, but ''still''.

* 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"

* 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!")
