** Even though she thought the aforementioned album of hers still says it by bit, later songs of hers (with some MV's of her recent songs in the mix) do play the trope well, as if she's pulling a [[Anime/MacrossFrontier Sheryl Nome]] (Cool For The Summer, anyone?), at least in her singing career.
* Music/MileyCyrus is now becoming a crowning example of this - to the point her "HotterAndSexier lead single" has right in the intro "It’s our party we can love who we want, we can kiss who we want, we can screw who we want". Series/HannahMontana this is not.

* This trope can apply to many of the songs, or at least artists, chosen to be played on Radio Disney stations. Besides the cases where a Creator/DisneyChannel or Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}-connected IdolSinger may opt for DarkerAndEdgier or HotterAndSexier content [[ContractualPurity as they grow older]], often artists outside of the Disney/tween/family-friendly orbit like B.O.B., Music/KatyPerry, Music/JessieJ, Music/{{LMFAO}} or Music/{{Pink}} might be found on their playlists, in spite of recording many explicit lyrics-laden (or at least less-than-G-Rated) albums and singles. Often, the songs are [[{{Bowdlerise}} edited for content]], but it may give those artists an impression of being more appropriate for children than they are. Often this is true of PG-13 or R-rated artists like Music/LadyGaga who are freely and frequently namechecked on the [[{{Kidcom}} kidcoms]] as well.

** Tom Lehrer's ''hilarious'' take on it (in several ''very different'' musical styles) features the line "when she said I could have her, her sister's cadaver must surely have turned in its crypt."

* One of Todrick Hall's albums, Straight Outta Oz, falls under this trope. Yes, it's based off [[Film/TheWizardOfOz a popular family film]] and some of the songs are pretty G or PG-rated, but then you get tracks with titles such as "Whoop Dat Ass" and "Wrong Bitch", along with lyrics such as "It's just another box of tricks/Some crock of shit/And good dreams go wasted" and "Your seat's a floating device, but who cares?/'Cause if the plane goes down in flames/You won't be floating nowhere".

* "Clementine" has become a well-known children's song and has been covered countless times on various kids' [=CDs=]. It may seem like a song about a cute young girl, but if one listens closely to the lyrics, it's about her tragic death when she accidentally falls into a river. This is made worse by the fact that some versions of the song include a verse where her father jumps into the river after finding out that she drowned.

Added DiffLines:

* "Sonic Best Pal" by Starbomb looks like it's for kids, just because it's about ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog''. It's not. The song's about Tails who develops low self-esteem, goes on drugs, and eventually [[EnfantTerrible goes on a murder spree]], thanks to himself always hiding in Sonic's shadow. [[ClusterFBomb There's a lot of profanity in the song, also.]]

* Music/FallOutBoy has always attracted a fair amount of teenagers and the older crowd due to their innuendo laced lyrics. That didn't stop Kidz Bop for wanting to put "Dance, Dance" on ''Kidz Bop 10''. [[http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1533265/fall-out-boy-take-on-kidz-bop.jhtml The band and their manager weren't pleased]], especially since Kidz Bop technically didn't need their permission to use it. Kidz Bop eventually dumped the track from the list. Later on, "[[DoubleEntendre Sugar, We're Goin' Down]]" got away with being used for the trailers of the Tim Allen movie, ''Zoom: Academy for Superheroes'', and eleven years after this incident did this, the group would appear in the second ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' TVMovie "The Day the Night Stopped Beginning to Shine and Became Dark Even Though it Was the Day".
