* 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 [[CrapPastTheRadar through to a kid's movie in the first place is astonishing.]]

** "Pokémon": Yes, it's about that particular franchise, but it's more about the craze it spawned in the late 90's, something that very few kids would understand.



* Because he's made songs about things other than money, bitches, murder, and drugs, many people seem to be under the impression that Music/{{Macklemore}} is a "family-friendly" rapper. Of course, being a rapper, his music is rife with [[ClusterFBomb swearing]], and his music has touched on not-so-family friendly issues in a non-glorfied way, such as drug addiction, gay rights, and having sex.

* Creator/JackBlack is heavily associated with being a kid-friendly comedian thanks to films such as ''Film/NachoLibre'', ''Film/SchoolOfRock'', and ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda''. His band Music/TenaciousD has had PG hits, like "Wonder Boy" and "Tribute", however much of their material is not clean.

* Speedcore artist ''Renard'' (which made albums under the LapFox label) has a dedicated small demographic of 9-year olds. Most of his tracks are indeed kid-friendly (heavy SensoryAbuse notwithstanding), but some others are just fucked up, with outright lovely names like ''Team Murder''. These lines from the track ''Big Shot'' drive the point home:\\
''If I was president''\\
''I got elected on Friday''\\
''assassinated on Saturday''\\
''maybe on Sunday''

* Many people believe that Music/KidRock's "All Summer Long" is a family-friendly road trip song. While the tune is happy, [[LyricalDissonance the lyrics describe two young lovers drinking, doing drugs, smoking weed, and having sex by the beach, likely underage]]. Not exactly kid-friendly material.

* Music/MelanieMartinez dresses in cute pastel dresses and sings [[LyricalDissonance cheery sounding]] songs with names like "Teddy Bear" and "Dollhouse". Despite this she is not a musician you should probably let your toddler listen to. Her songs are often about dysfunctional romances, abuse, [[MurderBallad murder]], and [[SanitySlippageSong mental instability]].

* Music/BrunoMars seems to have a following with kids. A few of his songs have been nominated for [[Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} Kids' Choice Awards]], and songs cowritten by him were featured in [[Film/TheMuppets both modern]] [[Film/MuppetsMostWanted Muppets films]]. [[note]] Though bear in mind that Franchise/TheMuppets were originally aimed at adults, but it later was aimed at families, these performances might as well have been {{Parental Bonus}}es. [[/note]] His songs' lyrics talk about things that kids would not understand, and sometimes contain swearing.

* There exists an 11-year-old YouTube singer, [=MattyBRaps=] who covers inappropriate songs while [[{{Bowdlerization}} bowdlerising]] the more inappropriate lyrics. He covered songs such as Music/ChrisBrown's "Loyal" (changing "These hoes ain't loyal" to "That girl ain't loyal") and Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" (a song which can only be interpreted to be about date rape).

* 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".

* BobRivers, known for his Christmas parody songs, suffers from this. His songs play on many radio stations during the holiday, and while some are innocent (such as The Chimney Song), his other songs are not as innocent.

* "What shall we do with the drunken sailor" seems to have become quite a popular song for children, and has been featured as background music on ''SpongeBobSquarePants''. As the title implies, it's about drunkenness and a few quite horrific ways a 19th century Navy might have dealt with it. And if you misunderstand the line about the Captain's daughter, you might even think there's some sexual innuendo. Although it's anyone's choice if they prefer to tell their child about sex or about the cat-o'-nine-tails...

*** Speaking of Maroon 5, "Payphone" was featured in a Nickelodeon promo for SpongeBobSquarePants. It seems like a cheery song about a person who wants to live a fantastic life, but it drops the F-bomb at one point in the uncensored version. No wonder the promo in question didn't last that long on the channel!
