** The video for "White & Nerdy," at the line "I edit Wikipedia," has Weird Al vandalizing the Atlantic Records page on ThatOtherWiki, replacing the article with "'''YOU SUCK!'''" WebVideo/AMVHell noticed. In Number 4, there is a clip for "White & Nerdy", where a character edits the Wikipedia page on Obesity, changing it to "'''YOU'RE FAT!!!'''" This shot at Atlantic Records was actually the ''end'' of an extended TakeThat. See below.

** "Mean" is also seen as a TakeThat toward critics (whom she does not specifically name) who claimed she could not sing nor belonged in the country music genre.



* Music/JohnnyCash and his 1996 album ''Unchained'' won great critical acclaim, but few at country music radio were willing to even so much as play anything from the album ... the main reason being their fascination with "new" country artists of the time, including Music/TimMcGraw, Music/FaithHill and Music/ShaniaTwain. So when ''Unchained'' won a UsefulNotes/GrammyAward for Best Country Album in 1998, Cash and the album's producer, Rick Rubin, decided to show their "appreciation" for country radio's non-support by taking out a full-page advertisement in a March 1998 issue of ''Billboard'' magazine. The ad featured a photograph of a circa-mid 1960s Cash sticking up his middle finger, along with a message reinforcing country radio's lack of support. Cash's statement triggered a renewed debate over what constitutes country music.

Added DiffLines:

* Roy Clark and "The Lawrence Welk-Hee Haw Counter-Revolution Polka," which is a take that to both CBS and ABC, which cancelled, respectively, ''Series/HeeHaw'' and ''The Lawrence Welk Show'' in 1971, in what was clearly a case of those shows (perceived, at least) to be drawing in older viewers, rather than the more desirable younger demographic, even though both shows becoming long-running ratings winners in syndication.

** "Swish Swish" (featuring Music/NickiMinaj) is widely seen as this towards Music/TaylorSwift's "Bad Blood", which was aimed towards her. So much that Swift's friend Creator/RubyRose was very pissed off.

* The 1966 Dutch protest song ''Welterusten Mijnheer de President'' (Sleep tight, Mister President) by Boudewijn de Groot balances between this and an outright TheVillainSucksSong. The song is listing several of the horrors of the VietnamWar, but tells President Johnson [[SarcasmMode not to worry about it all]] and have a good night's sleep.

** Another notable take that is "Choosing Your Masters", which mocks {{MTV}}'s "Rock The Vote" campaign. The song makes the argument that MTV's audience, consisting of "the world's biggest losers", is too unintelligent to make informed voting decisions, and that "...there ought to be a law / if you can sit through a Music/{{Silverchair}} video, you shouldn't be allowed to vote at all". Other specific artists mentioned in such a light include Music/StoneTemplePilots, Music/BlindMelon, and [[Music/HenryRollins The Rollins Band]].

** Pete did it again at the 2009 {{MTV}} Music Video Awards when he leaked the phone number of Cobra Starship's Gabe Suporta though a shirt that had the number hidden under black pieces of tape. Gabe freaked out when Wentz removed the tape and MTV had to be quick about blurring the number. The shirt was latter auctioned off; no word if Cobra Starship has gotten revenge on him or not.

* Music/MojoNixon's 1989 song "Debbie Gibson Is Pregnant With My Two-Headed Love Child" includes in its lyrics a slam at then-MTV golden boy Music/RickAstley. Because of Astley's all-too-fleeting but immensely profitable popularity at the time, {{MTV}}'s management refused to broadcast the video. In response, Nixon broke with the network, which had previously featured him in several promotional spots; his refusal to work with MTV continues to this day. The lines that were so offensive?
