* The German band "Die Ärzte" demonstrate this in their animated music video for the live-performed song "Elke".

* Punk band "Templeton Pek" (yup, an A-Team reference) turn up their speakers Up to Eleven...visually. ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNSzHU9hazY Barriers]]'' (at the end)
* {{Rush}} fell victim to this trope with their 2002 album ''Vapor Trails''. Coming out in the thick of the "loudness war" of the early 2000s, it was mastered so loud that most of the subtle details (including Alex Lifeson's acoustic guitar) were buried, distorted, or badly obscured. In February 2011, the band announced plans to remix the whole album.

* The song "The Man Who Couldn't Cry," recorded by JohnnyCash in 1993, starts out as a typical song of despair about a man down on his luck. As the song progresses the litany of misfortune thrown at the protagonist continues to build and build (loses his dog, his wife, his arm, his Broadway show is a flop, a prostitute laughs at him, his ex-wife dies of stretch marks, the earth suffers perpetual drought, etc.) to the point where it reveals itself as a spoof of "doom and despair" ballads.
* ''Music/{{Halestorm}}'s'' ''I Like It Heavy'', a tribute song to how much the singer like heavy metal, features a lyric about cranking the dial up "one louder than ten."

* DeepPurple has been rated as the loudest Rock-band in the world, and that's not without a proper reason either. During all of their favorite songs, they tend to bring the volume up, just a bit... well, a lot, actually. "Average" songs, by their standards, are played loud. When they get to "Smoke On The Water", "Hell To Pay" or "Black Night" (or "[[SpellMyNameWithAnS Black Knight]]". They're not sure themselves), or any of their AudienceParticipation songs, for that matter, the volume goes up. If you didn't already need earplugs, you'll need them when those songs come around, and you get ''no warning'' before the songs start!
