* The {{Music/Disturbed}} song "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbGlhVHvBkU 3]]" (which is BasedOnATrueStory) is about three boys [[MiscarriageOfJustice who were falsely accused of murder]] just because they [[{{Goth}} wore dark clothes]]. Also a case of LightIsNotGood:
-->''I was a boy who had to live his own way / I never fit into the model they had designed''\\
''I chose a path less taken... / I stood with others who had often felt the same''\\
''We got stares from passersby / Our dark attire seemed to frighten people away''\\
''And when three young boys died / They pointed fingers and entangled us in a lie!''
** This also seems to be the theme of the chorus to "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VyctTU_0FiM The Night]]":
--->''There can be no better way of knowing / In a world beyond controlling''\\
''Are you going to deny the savior / In front of your eyes?''\\
''Stare into the night / Power beyond containing''\\
''Are you going to remain a slave for / The rest of your life?''\\
''Give into the night''

* [[{{Music/IcedEarth}} Iced Earth's]] [[FilkSong Filk]] ConceptAlbum "The Dark Saga" which is about ''{{ComicBook/Spawn}}''. Also their multi-album saga of [[MetalBandMascot Set Abomiae]], which features a sympathetic alien AntiChrist [[VillainProtagonist as the protagonist]]. He's sympathetic because HumansAreTheRealMonsters who have committed genocide and untold atrocities against his kind and [[spoiler: [[AntiAntiChrist ultimately he decides to spare humanity]] with the caveat that if they become [[ANaziByAnyOtherName galactic-conquering monsters]] again he'll come down on them HARD.]]
* Many songs by {{Music/Nightwish}}. Romanticizing darkness (particularly the depiction of night-time as fantastically romantic) is a running theme, seen even in the band's very name.
