* This actually became a fad on Website/YouTube, especially with YoutubePoop, known as "X DOES Y WHILE I PLAY UNFITTING MUSIC". As the name suggests, the fad involves playing completely inappropriate music over a video clip. The first one was a clip of Luigi winding a jack-in-the-box accompanied with a snippet of "Don't Stop Me Now" from Queen.

** The same thing happened during the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Some of the songs played in the wake of the bombing fell into IsntItIronic territory, like [[Music/ThePolice "Every Breath You Take"]], "Stumbling In" and "Ever Changing Times".

* The Muzak remained on in the plaza at the World Trade Center on September 11. A cop described the eerie sensation of being there with no people around and no sounds except for that, sirens in the distance, and debris falling to earth...as well as people jumping from the windows.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=duSGxOwuqNI This]] camera commercial from HP features [[http://www.metrolyrics.com/pictures-of-you-lyrics-the-cure.html ''Pictures of You'']] by The Cure, a song about missed opportunities and the sadness of having nothing at all left except the pictures.

* Parodied in a {{memetic|Mutation}} Spotify commercial featuring the band DNCE. Lead singer Joe Jonas talks about how some of their songs are in a playlist called "Play This At My Funeral", and after he states that the songs would sound out-of-place at an actual funeral, we're treated to some people dancing to one of their songs while holding a casket.

* The Internet meme of Rickrolling, which is the use of a falsely advertised video that, when viewed, actually runs audio of Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up", falls under this trope, because in a piece of irony in relation to the lyrics, the viewer ''is'' being let down.

* 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.
