* Music/AvengedSevenfold has the song "M.I.A." on ''City of Evil'', "Gunslinger" on the self-titled album, "Danger Line" on ''Nightmare'', the title track of ''Hali to the King'' and "Angel"s on ''Music/TheStage''... It's a theme that inspires them apparently.

* The discography of {{Galneryus}} up until 2009 is pretty equally split between this trope and WarIsGlorious. Some of the best for this trope would be "Blame Yourself" and "Stardust."

* The KaizersOrchestra song "170", about a volunteer soldier (given the number "170" and never referred to by name) who leaves behind his pregnant wife to fight in a war. The song ends as his CO sends him over the top first to check if all is clear, and no response comes. The song "Død manns tango" (Dead Man's Tango) involves a veteran who's been forgotten by the world and paralysed from the waist down: It's possible it's the same person.

* Music/BillyJoel's "Goodbye Saigon", about the Vietnam war, is well known for its realism and the many [[TearJerker hearts it broke.]] To give an example, ''these'' are the opening lines.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/{{Kreator}}'s ''Warcurse'' makes it clear what the song is about from the very first lines:
--> Envision World War Two \\
In a land that's ruled by hate and hunger \\
I guide the fading souls \\
As bodies drown in flames

Added DiffLines:

* A lot of lyrics of later Music/{{Dismember}}, particularly on ''Massive Killing Capacity''. From "On Frozen Fields":
--> On frozen fields of horror \\
March through the firestorm \\
Mangeled victims lay \\
Forgotten and forlorn

Added DiffLines:

* The unfinished song "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qefkpHM7SaM Ronin]]" by Music/{{Cormorant}} explores this theme. Even though it was a 1/4 of the way finished, Arthur von Nagel provided the rest of the lyrics.
-->You once visited the graves \\
Of the heroes and the knaves, \\
Asked God why it wasn't you, \\
Why you lost the will to live, \\
Why your homeland wouldn't give

--> ''Now tell me, who won here, tonight?\\
The price of winning worthless fights?''
