please read the instructions / trope description on the [[EvenEvilHasStandards main page]] before posting.
* In the song "Music/AlicesRestaurant", when the singer describes being sent to the Group W bench (for those who possibly "may not be moral enough to join the Army") full of "mother-rapers, father-stabbers, and [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs father-rapers]]", one of them ask him why he's there. When they hear his response "littering", they all move away from him on the bench. But he regained their respect by adding "And creating a nuisance".
* In the JonathanCoulton song "Re: Your Brains", the zombie singer informs his prospective victim that he and his colleagues are "not unreasonable" because while they intend to eat his brains "No one's gonna [[EyeScream eat your eyes]]." Then again, they're saying this as a bargaining chip to convince him to let them in.
* The song "Date Rape" by the ska-punk band Sublime is an example because the band members did a lot of shitty things, but they'd never date rape.
* In TomLehrer's "The Irish Ballad" the little girl protagonist kills her entire family and then willingly admits to it when the police show up, because "lying, she knew, was a sin."
* [[EqualsThree Your Favorite Martian]]'s "Club Villain" is a song about dance club full of [[BigBad Big Bads]], [[PsychoForHire psychos]], and monsters, where the only person to get kicked out was ChrisBrown.
* In NickCave's "Curse of Millhaven," the protagonist is a self-confessed evil teenager, happily singing to police and townfolk about [[SerialKiller her outrageously long]] list of murders but is '''adamant''' though, she didn't kill the schoolteacher's dog: that was two other school-age psychos she has no respect for. To be fair, Lottie doesn't seem to have a lot of respect for much of anyone or anything. It could be read that she wouldn't have minded killing the dog but never got the chance, or that she'd gone beyond the point where animal cruelty was fun anymore. Mostly though, she just didn't want to be pegged for something she didn't do.
* T.I.S.M. combined this trope with RefugeInAudacity and [[ClusterFBomb Cluster C Bomb]] to create their song "I Might Be A Cunt, But I'm Not A Fucking Cunt." The lyrics include such protestations of virtue as, "I might have screwed your sister, but I'll never screw your mum" and "[[AustralianRulesFootball I might barrack for Port Power, but never for the Crows.]]" The whole pretense is dropped near the end with, "I mightn't tell the truth all the time, but hey, [[CrossesTheLineTwice what's your mum's number?]]"
* In the song ''Banned From Argo'', some space pirates (or in the original rendition of the song, Klingons) planned to commence a raid on the titular shore leave planet. However, when they discovered the debauchery that a Starfleet crew (implied to be that of the ''Enterprise'') is doing while on shore leave, they decided against raiding the shore leave planet and wanted to get out of there, implying that even they felt that what the crew on shore leave was doing was terrible.
* In Tom Smith's song ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_jrqaRZ1RIU Rocket Ride]]'', he describes how sci-fi villains in the old days would "Honor a promise (even) if it meant they died, give me a villain with professional pride!"
* The Music/BarenakedLadies' song "Bank Job" narrates the aftermath of a failed bank robbery. Midway through, we learn the reason everything went bad: one of the robbers panicked when he realized the bank's lobby was full of nuns.
* "We're Crooks" (lyrics by Creator/PGWodehouse) makes variations on this the punchline of each verse (e.g. "we've never been in Congress, for we draw the line at that").
