* Music/DemiLovato, which makes sure of showing how ShesAllGrownUp in the R&B parts of her current album, ''Unbroken''. Although she has since [[CreatorBacklash admitted to feeling uncomfortable]] [[http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/pop-shop/1561404/demi-lovato-qa-on-demi-her-x-factor-return-and-being-sick-of-party with the "party songs" years later]].

later]]. Fellow Disney girl alum Music/AshleyTisdale is on the same track.track.
** 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.



* Similar to [=MattyBRaps=], Music/{{Cimorelli}} sometimes dips to this trope with the same {{Bowdlerization}} applied. Some of the songs they cover are sometimes inappropriate but since they cover songs popular at the moment, all they just do is change some words; one example being their take on Meghan Trainor's "Lips are Movin'" (changing Trainor's "You give me bass" to the sisters' own "You give me love"). Another would be their take on Justin Bieber's "Sorry".

* EmilieAutumn's "Miss Lucy Had Some Leeches" might ''sound'' like it's a [[LyricalDissonance cheerful kid's song]], but if you actually listen to the lyrics, you'll discover that it's... [[IronicNurseryTune not]]. In fact, it's about insane asylums, female circumcision and rape.

* For some reason, "Tik Tok" by {{Kesha}} was used in commercials for several children's movies when it first came out. Lyrics sample: "I'm talking 'bout everybody gettin' crunk, crunk / Boys tryna touch my junk, junk / Gonna smack 'em if ya getting too drunk, drunk..."

* 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 DisneyChannel or {{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.

* Music/((Rihanna))'s song "Shut Up And Drive" appeared in ''Film/WreckItRalph'', but if you read the lyrics and see the music video, you'll quickly learn it's... [[DoubleEntendre not about racing.]] The fact a song like this made it [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar through to a kid's movie in the first place is astonishing.]]

Added DiffLines:

* This could easily become the case with ''any'' song in which the [[{{bowdlerize}} radio edit]] is better known than the original. Many people are unaware that the version they are familiar with is actually the censored version, and that the original is much less family-friendly.

* The Black Lace song "We're Having a Gangbang" sounds like an upbeat children's song, but it really isn't meant for them as the title suggests.

* "Eung Freestyle" was played in a YouTube Music ad shown before kids' movies such as ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretLifeOfPets'', ''[[WesternAnimation/IceAge5CollisionCourse Ice Age: Collision Course]]'' and ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory''. Despite the song being sung mostly in Korean, it has some parts with English language, some of which references adult themes. The song also starts with 3 uses of the F word.

* In 1982 - 1983, millions of preteen and teenaged girls were greatly moved as they sat by their record players and listened to then-teen idols {{Duran Duran}}'s hit single "Save a Prayer", and when they saw Duran Duran perform said song live they flicked their Bic lighters on and swayed to and fro. All of this raw emotion was for a song singing the joys of one-night stands.
