* Music/{{Nightwish}}'s "Master Passion Greed" is a shot at the supposed greed of Turunen's husband, Marco Cabuli, and his contribution to the process that led to Tarja's firing.\\
\\
"Bye Bye Beautiful" is a shot at Tarja herself, accusing her of not paying attention to the rest of the band.
** Tarja has since fired back with her new single "Enough" which is her story about... basically what it says on the tin.

* Music/HilaryDuff's song "Dignity", from the 2007 album of the same name, also takes a shot at the same subject as P!nk, and/or the travails of the likes of Creator/ParisHilton, Creator/LindsayLohan, Nicole Richie and Music/BritneySpears (In early 06-late 08), and the scandalous jet-set lives of other Hollywood starlets. Other songs from the album allude to her father's infidelities (gypsy woman, stranger) and her broken relationship with Good Charlotte's Joel Madden (Happy, Outside Of You), as well as a stalker who she won a restraining order against(Dreamer, Between You And Me)

Added DiffLines:

* "Hook" by Blues Traveller pokes fun of how popular songs can be made out of anything as long as they're sung a certain way and have a catchy tune. Most listeners will probably ignore the meaning anyway. Naturally, it also has a MisaimedFandom of people who ignore the lyrics.

* Music/ElP kicked off a feud with Demigodz (largely just Esoteric) on his guest verse on Music/AesopRock's "We're Famous" after Esoteric called his music "nerd rap", basically calling him an irrelevant never-was who was stuck in the 90s and going nowhere with his music, while El-P was the head of a major underground label and managed to be relevant and successful ''because'' he dared to be unconventional. In return, Esoteric fired back with "Mercy Killing" (which also targeted Vast Aire of Cannibal Ox), the first verse of which accused El-P of making hip-hop for hipsters and not even really being part of the hip-hop scene and insinuated that he wasn't as comfortable enough in his status as he wanted to appear if he was taking the time to respond to Eso's diss. After this, El-P finished with the absolutely ''brutal'' "7700 Years to Date", pointing out that 7L & Esoteric sold less copies in a year than Aesop Rock sold on his first day, that El had just played a sold-out show in Boston that Eso didn't even bother showing up to, and that Eso was probably still around despite the fact that he clearly wasn't making any money off of his music solely because he had a rich dad that he could sponge off of.

He did give him credit for one thing, however - introducing fellow Boston rapper Mr. Lif to El, who later signed him to Def Jux.

* Music/{{Aerosmith}}'s "Dude (Looks Like A Lady)" was a good-natured Take That to Vince Neil, lead singer of MotleyCrue ([[http://api.ning.com/files/7uBoPkLU-nOyDxNRqMAdf5hERDqpRpq63biKUuS3lne8xwGbCjYbBfQ*6IMdSO0z7*HfoqKGQCMxw8ElyGNAUHh3XHcqB5Lo/Bio.jpg It's obvious why.]]) The band still thinks it's hilarious.

*** "Word Crimes" also includes this lyric: "You should never/Write words using numbers/Unless you're seven/Or your name is Prince." [[{{Prince}} The artist formerly and once again known as Prince]] is apparently so averse to song parodies that his lawyer instructed Al not to make eye contact with Prince at an awards show. At this point in the song, the video displays the weird symbol Prince briefly adopted in lieu of his name.

* Music/BringMeTheHorizon has the song "No Need For Introductions, I've Read About Girls Like You On The Backs Of Toilet Doors", which is aimed at a "fan" who claimed that the band had assaulted and pissed on her to sully their reputation.

* The video to "Starfuckers, Inc." by NineInchNails features Trent Reznor throwing a Music/MarilynManson album in a toilet. Considering Manson co-directed the video, appeared in it, has performed the song live with NIN before, and that the video digs at least a dozen other artists, his involvements seem to be purely self-parody, perhaps to keep the targets themselves from taking it too seriously. Not to mention that a Music/NineInchNails album is also in the toilet... and Manson was both signed by NIN's record label and had albums produced by Reznor.
