* Music/ThirdEyeBlind 's second album "Blue", released in November 1999, almost always has the track Slow Motion's vocal track removed (or at the least removed save for the chorus) due to it clearly discussing various forms of violence as well as drug use. (Most notably the opening line, "Ms. Jones taught me English / But I think I just shot her son"). Despite this, Stephan Jenkins (the band's frontman) wrote this song in 1995, predating the attacks and even their debut album.

* ''Film/TheMatrix'' was released three weeks before the massacre, and was accused of inspiring the shooters due to the "[[BadassLongcoat action hero in a trench coat]]" look the film popularized.



* Music/KMFDM was blamed by some for the massacre, not helped by the fact that one of the shooters, Eric Harris, was a fan of their music and posted the lyrics to some of their songs to his website, and the fact that their album "Adios" was released on the same day as the shooting.

* ''Film/TheBasketballDiaries'' was criticized for a scene where, in an ImagineSpot, the main character comes to school dressed in a trench coat, armed with a shotgun, and proceeds to shoot several classmates that he hates. The rest of the film has nothing to do with school violence, yet the scene is still uncomfortable to watch after the Columbine massacre.



* ''Film/NaturalBornKillers'', already considered controversial for its violence, was criticized heavily after the massacre. The killers themselves called their rampage "NBK" as a reference to the movie.



** His first novel, ''Literature/{{Rage}}'', was about a School Shooting. King pulled it from circulation after this incident and several others like it occurred.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' was one of the many alleged inspirations for the killers, as they were avid fans of the game. Eric Harris actually made several custom maps for the game, which are still available for people to download.

* You can't even use ''official Creator/{{Sega}} lightguns'' on the American UsefulNotes/SegaDreamcast because the console was released a few months after Columbine and gun support was region locked out. You had to use the scant few shitty third-party guns that were quietly eked out to Funcoland in order to make games like ''[[VideoGame/HouseOfTheDead The House of the Dead 2]]'' playable.

* One of the characters in the VehicularCombat game ''VideoGame/{{Vigilante 8}}'' drives a bright yellow school bus that is prominently featured on the game's cover art. After Columbine, however, the makers of the games didn't want to risk being associated with anything that so much as reminded people of violence in a school setting, and so, for both the sequel ''Second Offense'' and the UsefulNotes/XboxLiveArcade remake of the first game, they swapped the school bus out for a prison bus.A [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jms2zOU2MZE television advertisement]] featuring a trashed school bus was also pulled for the same reason.

* ''VideoGame/PerfectDark'' faced this problem in terms of there being plans to take photos with the GameBoy camera and use them in game. After the massacre the idea of shooting students and teachers came up and Rare had to pull this feature.
