* {{Lady Gaga}}'s video for "BadRomance." White walls and furnishings, bright lighting, lots of white and/or sparkly costumes, and the plot ([[MindScrew as far as the audience can tell]]) involves slavery and murder.
** "Alejandro" has her character as dressing white, saint like robes; depending on who you ask, she was meant to represent the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy (although, if you're an homophobe, she would probably be your hero). And the infamous ending had her face melting away while her eyes and mouth were replaced by light; many will be glad to inform you of how terrifying that looked.
* [[ColdPlay "Lights will guide you home/And ignite your bones]]
* From, ironically enough, [[{{Anastasia}} "In The Dark Of The Night"]]: "Let your evil shine!".

* {{Rammstein}}s "Hier kommt die Sonne": "The sun is shining out of my hands/ Can burn, can blind you/ When it breaks out of [my] fist/ Lays itself hotly on [your] face" ("Die Snne scheint mire aus den Händen/ Kann verbrennen, kann euch blenden/ Wenn sie as den Fausten bricht/ Legt sich heiß auf das Gesicht")
