** "Only The Good Die Young" has some less than flattering words to say about Catholicism, including outright accusing it of limiting peoples' life experiences: -->Well, they showed you a statue, told you to pray -->They built you a temple and locked you away -->But they never told you the price that you pay -->The things that you might have done.

* Music/{{Spoon}}'s single [[PunBasedTitle "The Agony of Lafitte", and it's b-side "Lafitte Don't Fail Me Now"]] are both about their former A&R man Ron Laffitte. Laffitte quit his job shortly after their album ''A Series Of Sneaks'' met with disappointing sales, despite his promise to the band he'd stick with them, and Spoon were subsequently dropped from Elektra Records.

* The Swedish Rock[=/=]Pop singer Magnus Uggla often incorporate this trope into his various songs. The song "För Kung Och Fosterland" (For King And Country) for example may sound like some patriotic song title but is in fact used with heavy irony as the song criticizes consumer society.

* When John Addison won an Emmy in 1985 for scoring the pilot of ''MurderSheWrote'', he commented in his acceptance speech it was a surprise this won because the music "was played by people." At the time, synth scores - spearheaded by ''Series/MiamiVice'' - were all the rage (and indeed ''Miami Vice'' had fielded one of the nominees that year, as did the also-electronically-scored ''StElsewhere'').[[note]] The other nominated scores came from ''Series/CagneyAndLacey'', ''Series/{{Dynasty}}'' and ''Series/HighwayToHeaven'', if you're wondering.[[/note]]

::Referring to Mr B being the brain behind the infamous "Eat my goal" phenomenon and subsequent song "Mr B's World Cup Anthem" in which he blasts the corporate nature of [[TheBeautifulGame football]] and suggests we should celebrate when the footballers are out of the country, making him seem something of a hypocrite though the intent may have been an apology.

* Music/FallingInReverse has several toward EscapeTheFate (their lead singer's former band who kicked him out), like "I just learned that my fate is something I can't escape."

* 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 TimMcGraw, FaithHill and 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.

** 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 StoneTemplePilots, Music/BlindMelon, and [[HenryRollins The Rollins Band]].

* Music/{{Hopsin}}'s "Ill Mind" series has directly attacked several other hip-hop artists, on top of bemoaning the state of the rap industry as shallow, materialistic, misogynistic, violent crap. "Sag My Pants" was a sarcastic take on this, sung in the same style as said crap, mockingly encouraging violence against women and brainwashing kids to be like the violent, materialistic, mainstream artists, among earnest insults at Music/{{Drake}}, Music/LilWayne, Music/SouljaBoy, and even ''Music/LupeFiasco''. (He later clarified that he was attacking Lupe on his claims that he could skate in the song "Skater".)

Lastly, the skit "No Words" on ''Pound Syndrome'' is an unambiguous shot at [[{{Trapmusic}} trap]], particularly the heavily slurred, extremely processed, and often downright incomprehensible nature of the rapping (though he would probably take issue with even calling it "rapping").
