* In ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', Red Team's jeep always rolls into battle with bouncy Tejano music blaring, since they can't figure out how to work the radio. This gives certain pitched battles a surreal quality...

Added DiffLines:

* The music video for Music/GunsNRoses's "November Rain".
* The original [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbNrqYOAkYU Music Video]] for Norazo's {{Superman}}, song made popular by PumpItUp. The music is upbeat and is assumed to be a parody of the superheroes genre, but the video is made out of lyrical dissonance, and it opens and closes with this trope. It's no wonder Andamiro chose to replace the music video with something more whimsical and delete the opening and closing.

Added DiffLines:

* "Pumped Up Kicks" by Foster the People is certainly a catchy, even relaxing song with a music video seemingly designed to appeal to hipster kids. Of course, with lyrics like "All the other kids with the pumped up kicks, you better run, better run, outrun my gun," it appears to be sending the exact opposite message.
* "Why Do You Let Me Stay Here?" by She and Him sounds like a pleasant melody without watching the video, but the light red blood and the scooby-doo like spooky graphics are a very good showing of mood Dissonance. [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=dtlO0RXktlo The music video]]
* Music/ReginaSpektor, "That Time". "Hey, remember that time when you OD'd?" "Hey, remember that other time when you OD'ed [[CrossesTheLineTwice for the second time]]?"
* The Music/NewOrder song ''True Faith'' is about the singer's struggle with a drug addiction ("I used to think that the day would never come that my life would depend on the Morning Sun"), but the video features dancers jumping around in colorful inflatable suits.

** Interestingly, that's similar to the setup for the famous OnlyFoolsAndHorses episode "A Touch of Glass", AKA "the falling chandelier episode"; long before the chandeliers are even mentioned, Del Boy has just bought a massive shipment of gaudy cat ornaments which play ''How Much Is That Doggie in the Window'', an incongruity which leads Rodney to be less confident than Del that they will be able to sell the cats at a profit.

* The ''{{Music/Gorillaz}}'' video for El Manana depicts air-pirates destroying the band's floating windmill while a band member runs for her life. Most of the video is pretty action packed and it ends on a cliffhanger. Despite this, the song is very somber and soothing.
** This also happens in the "sequel" video, On Melancholy Hill. The video fits the music for the most part except for the opening in which the aforementioned bandmate takes her revenge agaisnt the air pirates, shooting them down with a machine gun. The song is pretty mellow as well.
* {{Music/Devo}}'s music video Beautiful World may codify this trope for music video—a song that sounds happy and upbeat, at first set to cherry images of dancing women and sci-fi future, quickly takes a turn towards war footage, and race riots. [[HumansAreBastards "It's a beautiful world,"]] indeed.
* MyChemicalRomance's video for SING can be called a similar case to El Manana, the song itself is upbeat and somewhat encouraging, the video shows the Killjoys blasting their way through BL/ind HQ to save the little girl, the girl makes it out alive, but the Killjoys all die doing so.

* ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup'''s musical number, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcbazH6aE2g Slaughter Your World]], takes the tune of Creator/{{Disney}}'s ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'''s "Part Of Your World", exchanges Ariel for [[TokenEvilTeammate Richard]], and exchanges the lyrics describing [[IWantSong a young mermaid's wish to experience life with feet as opposed to fins]] for a PsychopathicManchild's [[CruelAndUnusualDeath graphical descriptions]] [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill of what he gleefully does]] [[BloodyHilarious to the people that unfortunately (for them) happen to cross his path.]]

*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hwT-RbU03vc And now, the same thing]], with a {{Babar}} musical toy. This hits home as Soundtrack Dissonance because ''How Much Is That Doggie In The Window'' is the last thing you'd expect from a toy featuring elephants.

** Somewhat similarly, the signal for Portugal's [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnation_Revolution Carnation Revolution]] almost a year to the day earlier (25 April 1974) was [[SillyLoveSongs E Depois do Adeus]], Portugal's entry for the EurovisionSongContest. The revolution was nearly bloodless, but it ''could'' have gotten quite bloody if the forces loyal to the regime had opted to make it so.

** Played for [[TearJerker considerably less laughs]] in the episode "Heroes and Monsters."
