* Music/TomLehrer. On his debut album, he included a ditty singing the praises of the neighborhood dope peddler. This was in ''1953''.
** Then there's "TheMasochismTango", which is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin exactly what it sounds like]], and includes such romantic exhortations as
--->My heart entreats,
--->Just hear those savage beats
--->And go and put on your cleats
--->And come and trample me.
** Lehrer himself says that probably his most controversial song is "The Vatican Rag" which pokes fun at the Roman Catholic Church (specifically at Vatican 2's allowing 'modern' music to be used during Mass.) Even if you don't come from a religious background, it is downright hilarious, even more so if you're a former Catholic. The recording, which is a live one, has the audience breaking out in laughter every few seconds. They really did find it just that funny.

** After she suffered from a WardrobeMalfunction at a show and the ''[[BritishNewspapers Daily Mail]]'' did their typical lurid, misogynistic sensationalism about it, Palmer responded by writing a song that epically {{deconstruct}}s the trope's misogynistic overtones. During performances of the song, she defies the trope by outright stripping completely naked onstage. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IY8qkJSQJ8M Link NSFW, obviously.]]

* Music/TheFugs applied this with an intensity that still shocks people to this day - And they were still at it as late as 2008, a pretty amazing feat itself for a garage band formed in 1965. While they did release a few songs that actually got airplay in the US, such as "Ramses the Second is Dead, My Love", most of their work - which was much performance art as music - used language and attitude that would get them barred from not only radio but most live venues of the time. Songs like "Wide, Wide River" (which [[RefrainFromAssuming people often assume]] is titled "River of Shit" from its refrain) and "Virgin Forest" (in which a caveman explicitly has sex, first with a woman, [[BestialityIsDepraved then with a chimpanzee]]) are among their better know pieces, and they aren't even close to the raunchiest they get. And, oh yeah, their second album - titled ''Thrown Off Atlantic''- includes a recording of the signing party for their ''first'' album with Atlantic Records, on a track titled "The Village Fugs Sign the Worst Recording Contract Since [[{{Blues}} Leadbelly]]". Now '''that''' is a TakeThat of legendary proportions.

** Their song "Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo" ''composed'' of sexual innuendo. And yes, the title DOES spell 'Fuck' in NATO phonetic spelling. The music video takes it even further, with such things as a car [[FreudWasRight shaped like a banana]] becoming [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything unpeeled]] as it goes through a tunnel.
