Added DiffLines:

* Billy Preston references this trope in his song "Will It Go Round in Circles":
-->"I got a story, it ain't got no moral,\\
Let the bad guy win every once in a while."
* PlayedForLaughs in Sophie Ellis-Bextor's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BsISfQAXE60 Murder on the Dance Floor]]." The BitchInSheepsClothing sabotages all the other dancers for a competition, and bribes the judge. She looks really happy when she wins.
* The theme of rapper Common's single "Testify": The man on trial is a petty drug dealer accused of a shooting. His wife is extremely distraught and disruptive in the courtroom and when he is found guilty she seems to break down.... [[spoiler: until it is revealed she is a criminal "queenpin" who set her husband up to take the fall for the murder she committed. The dramatic outbursts in the courtroom were entirely for show.]]
