* Music/TheyMightBeGiants try as hard as they can to avoid this by splitting their tours in two to cater to their two distinct fanbases (their original alternative rock fans and their new children's music fanbase). The "adult shows" (the one where they play their non-children's material and back catalog) have a 18 (or 21 in some places) cover for when someone tries to bring their kid into an adult TMBG concert expecting to hear music from their children's albums.

In addition to the difference in content, this is because "adult shows" tend to take place in venues that serve alcohol, so bringing someone under 18 would generally be illegal.

* The children's movie ''Film/TheOogielovesInTheBigBalloonAdventure'' uses NickiMinaj's "Starships" in the trailers. The chorus sounds pretty innocent, but the line directly after the chorus is "We're higher than a motherfucker".

** Gets even worse if you understand Portuguese, as it basically an ode to the drug dealer lifestyle[[note]]the cover that became popular, that is; the original was a ProtestSong[[/note]]. And knowing it was used in [[TheEliteSquad one of the most violent Brazilian movies of the 2000s]].

** 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.]]
