* When guitarist Brett Gurewitz left BadReligion on bad terms, both sides took musical potshots at each other. Bad Religion would preform "Stranger Than Fiction" (which was written by Brett) replacing the lyric "I wanna know why Hemmingway cracked" with "I wanna know why Gurewitz cracked" or "I wanna know where Brett gets his crack". On the other side, Brett wrote the song "Hate You", which was dedicated to Bad Religion bassist Jay Bentley. One wonders whether there was an amount of sheepishness from multiple parties when Brett rejoined a few years later.

* Just about all of Music/TomLehrer's songs could be said to be examples of this trope, but the one that really stands out is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QEJ9HrZq7Ro his "ode"]] to the [[strike:Nazi]] German rocket scientist Wernher Von Braun.
-->''Don't say that he's hypocritical/Say rather that he's a-political/"Once ze rockets are up, who cares where zey come down?"/"Zat's not my department," says Wernher Von Braun.''
** Let's not forget his classic "Send the Marines," about US foreign policy.

* The musical comedy duo Kit and the Widow have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBXsYNf1l5Y a song]] which ([[GettingCrapPastTheRadar without actually mentioning him by name]]) directly accuses AndrewLloydWebber of plagiarism, [[ShownTheirWork with examples]]. They have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbBh69Pa4PY another one]] with some less than flattering comments on StephenSondheim and his fans.

** "Look What You Made Me Do" is this to Spotify, Perry, Creator/KimKardashian, Music/KanyeWest and her exes Music/CalvinHarris and Creator/TomHiddleston. It's also seen as this to fans who missed the "old Taylor" (as in from her self-titled debut album to ''Red'').

* Music/TheBlackDahliaMurder wrote "Denounced, Disgraced" about former guitarist John Kempainen, who spent virtually all of his run in the band as little more than a mouth to feed due to his complete lack of contributions (he didn't even really write his own leads; whenever it came time to track them, he improvised them with some aid from Strnad and Eschbach) and quit with virtually no warning right before a major tour.
