** The narrator of "Trapped in the Drive-Thru" mentions he's watching "something stupid" on TV. Several lines later, it's implied to be ''Behind The Music''.

* ''Paramore'''s new song "Ain't It Fun" is a TakeThat to people who think living on their own is all fun and games, and that it's easy living alone, but then when it happens you face reality and realize the responsibility that it comes with. And that you can't always have your folks for everything (Don't go crying, to your mama/'Cause you're on your own, in the real world).

Interestingly, though the lyrics are all in the second person, Hayley Williams has said she wrote the song [[SelfDeprecation about herself]]: She had recently moved from Nashville to Los Angeles and wanted to remind herself that moving out wasn't going to solve all her problems.

* "Tiny Town" by The Dead Milkmen is kind of a TakeThat in and of itself, as it's basically a VillainSong about a town of bigoted rednecks. However, there's also a somewhat obscure take that to Boston hardcore band The F.U.'s - the second F.U.'s album, ''My America'', caused massive backlash against the band due to it's right-wing conservative lyrics [[note]] The F.U.'s would later claim the album was [[StealthParody partially sarcastic, and deliberately written to anger leftist punk fans]][[/note]]. Thus explaining the following lines:

* Promising rapper Canibus got into a beef with LLCoolJ which began after Canibus appeared as a cameo on LL Cool J's song "4,3,2,1" where the green rapper mentioned borrowing LL's mic tattoo from his arm. The rap veteran saw this as an insult and responded with a TakeThat against Canibus during his verse on the same track. After fans found out, Canibus quickly responded with a hard counter called "Second Round K.O" which featured the heavyweight boxing legend UsefulNotes/MikeTyson. Despite mostly positive responses, LL Cool J was seen as a rap pioneer above challenging and the good diss track [[GoneHorriblyRight actually backfired]]. The rap veteran then finished him off with a strong response called "The Ripper Strikes Back" which was a sequel to the original "Ripper" track which was a Take That towards Kool Moe Dee back in the 1980s. But that's another story.

** 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 [[HenryRollins The Rollins Band]].

Added DiffLines:

* Collective Soul's "Smashing Young Man" is one towards an unnamed, trash-talking arrogant celebrity heavily rumored to be Billy Corgan: Aside from how the title sounds like a play on the name of Music/SmashingPumpkins, there's the fact that Corgan has long been critical of Collective Soul, alleging that their hit "Shine" was a Smashing Pumpkins ripoff. Collective Soul's criticism is surprisingly constructive so far as a Take That song goes: the second verse makes the point that he could be using his platform for more constructive things.

** In the title track from the same album, one is fired off to TheChurchOfHappyology with "Fuck L Ron Hubbard and fuck all his clones."
** The song "Aenema" is a TakeThat towards the entire city of [[CaliforniaCollapse Los Angeles]]. And a pretty good one, at that.
