* [[http://tvskyle.bandcamp.com/track/babaganoush-acoustic "Babaganoush"]] by TV's Kyle describes a man against whom several people commit various acts; the only explanation they give is the title.
* The opening of the video for ''Blow'' by [[Music/{{Kesha}} Ke$ha]] gives us this little gem.
-->"So, I grabbed the bear by the throat, looked him right in the eyes, and I said 'Bear, you have 'till the count of zero to put some pants on and to apologize to the President.' And, um...that's the story of how I was elected to the Parliment of Uzbekistan.
* Music/BowlingForSoup:
** The album "The Great Burrito Extortion Case" doesn't actually refer to anything. That they'll admit to.
** Their song "Somebody Get My Mom" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPARzQYe9x8]]
* Music/PhilCollins, from "In The Air Tonight": "Well, I was there and I saw what you did, I saw it with my own two eyes..." What he might have seen has become the subject of both EpilepticTrees and [[http://www.snopes.com/music/songs/intheair.asp urban legends]]. As the page from Snopes notes, the entire song seems to be a NoodleIncident.
* Music/{{Dido}}'s "White Flag": "I know I left too much mess and destruction to come back again." She doesn't say what, but then again, I don't know if I even want to know what it is, if it's so bad an attractive woman like her can't ever go back to him.
* The ''Music/FlightOfTheConchords'' song "Albi" is apparently "part 6" of a children's TV program, and it starts "...[[PersonaNonGrata and so all the people of the village chased Albi the Racist Dragon into a very cold, very scary cave]]". The song also mentions "the badly-burnt Albanian boy from the day before", whom Albi tried to kill.
* Music/GunsNRoses' album ''"The Spaghetti Incident?"'' (the quotes are part of the title) was named for a food fight between Axl Rose and Steven Adler involving spaghetti. During Adler's resolution lawsuit after leaving the band, the food fight was brought up, dubbed "the Spaghetti incident" by Adler's attorney. Eventually, it was explained by band members Matt Sorum and Slash.
* "[[http://www.google.com/search?q=%2B%22hillary+song%22+%2B%22Marlin+Spike+Werner%22 Hillary Song]]" by Marlin Spike Werner never says what ''exactly'' happened in that Customs warehouse at Kathmandu. The only thing we can be certain of is that knocking the yak was most definitely not a good idea.
* Gail Garnett's 1960s song "We'll Sing In the Sunshine" says she'll live with a guy for one year, then move on. Does not say why, whether it's that she's dying (or he is), she can't be with a guy more than one year because she gets bored, or just likes medium-term relationships.
* The British band [[http://www.invocal.co.uk/ Invocal]], on a partiuclarly reclusive public-transport-user: "Oh, now don't you worry, Madalini's little crossbow / Only launches rods with little orange sucker pads. / She makes a point of never using actual weaponry / (Well, not since The Accident.)", Invocal, [[http://invocal.bandcamp.com/track/madalinis-aversion-to-smalltalk-had-become-really-rather-extreme "Madalini's Aversion to Smalltalk Had Become Really Rather Extreme."]]
* The opening to the song of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DK4NsgklXs Let's All Get Demented]].
-->When mum locked me in the coal shed, after the ''incident'', with the chainsaw and the latex rabbit, and the girl guides in the tent.
* The origin of Music/{{Maroon5}}'s name, which according to most reports is "a secret known only to the 5 of them and BillyJoel" (though the OtherWiki hints it to be a girl the band members had a "[[ReverseHarem collective crush]]" on).
* In PaulSimon's "Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard," "what the mama saw / it was against the law," but what she saw is never specified. [[http://bit.ly/am2h9B Asked in an interview]], Simon replied, "I have no idea what it is. [...] Something sexual is what I imagine, but when I say 'something,' I never bothered to figure out what it was. Didn't make any difference to me."
* When performing the song "My Home Town," Music/TomLehrer always omits a line by saying something to the effect of "we're recording tonight, so I'll have to leave this line out." (The published sheet music just calls for whistling, and in the studio version he says "Shall I? No, maybe better not.") He has subsequently admitted that he never came up with a satisfactory rhyme, and found the implication that he intended to say something so unspeakably racy it had to be censored much funnier.
* Lit's breakout single "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sc5iTNVEOAg My Own Worst Enemy]]" revolves around a moderate one. There was a fight between the singer and his girlfriend, but a lot of specifics are left to the listener's imagination.
* Bonnie Raitt, ''I Can't Make You Love Me.'' A somber melody emphasizes that this is the end of the relationship, and that it will end, "Morning will come and I'll do what's right / Just give me til then to give up this fight / And I will give up this fight." What the fight she has to give up or why she has to give it up, (other than they're just breaking up) remains unstated.
* Rosetta Stoned, from Tool's 10,000 Days album: "This is so real, like the time Dave floated away..."
* Music/TheRunaways, a 70's and 80's rock band whose members included Lita Ford, Joan Jett, and Micki Steele of The Bangles, were kicked out of Disneyland in 1977. According to a Disney rep, one of their offenses was "doing weird things with french fries"
* If the note sailor!Craig sends out to the rest of sailor!Music/DriftlessPonyClub is anything to go by in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4zZzYg2q9YY "Inspectors of Inspectors"]], Driftless Pony Club's been stuck in more than one whale.
* There was a band named [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/String_Cheese_Incident The String Cheese Incident]].
* The song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZ5gKH-V-LM "Such Horrible Things"]] by CreatureFeature explains the evil deeds committed by a person throughout his years. (Ex. "When I was two I poured super glue into my father's hair..." It skips ages by two until it reaches 18) The [[http://www.sweetslyrics.com/460305.Creature%20Feature%20-%20Such%20Horrible%20Things%20Lyrics.html lyrics]] refer to a noodle incident at age 14: "When I was fourteen--nothing much happened. Well, heh heh, ''there was that one time''..."
* While not a song in and of itself, Music/XJapan was, in their early days as X, involved in an ''actual'' NoodleIncident that split VisualKei from just being another part of Japanese Music/HeavyMetal. The band performed their song "Orgasm" at a noodle shop Yashiro, inviting along a TV crew to video them performing. Whether the noodleshop owners were complicit in the publicity stunt wasn't known, though the TV crew ''definitely'' was, and that led to the split at the time - the Japanese Heavy Metal community as it was at the time saw the VisualKei upstarts as being the AttentionWhore to use such promotion as staging a performance outside of a venue and dragging a TV crew along to film it, and as causing needless trouble for everyone. The split would later be mended to some degree (though some corners of Japanese Heavy Metal still look down on VisualKei artists as more interested in attention than music).
* Used to surprisingly dark effect in Music/WarrenZevon's "Poor, Poor Pitiful Me", with the abrupt ending of its last verse:
-->I met a girl at the rainbow bar
-->She asked me if I'd beat her
-->She took me back to the Hyatt House
-->...I don't wanna talk about it.
* The music video for hardcore band Norma Jean's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gXp4hdd2pk If You Got It At Five, You Got It At Fifty]]" starts mid-conversation with guitarist Chris Day casually telling vocalist Cory Putman about how "apparently restraining orders are a really big deal", and Cory responding with deadpan boredom, "Whatever."
* The card game that Music/{{Aborted}} released as a preorder bonus for ''The Necrotic Manifesto'' made reference to Ken Bedene and his run-in with a tow truck. The only other thing that the card confirmed was that he made the mistake of parking the van in a tow zone; the rest of the incident isn't clearly stated, and when Sven encouraged Ken to elaborate in an interview, Ken steadfastly refused on the grounds that he didn't want to "look like a dumbass in a fuckin' interview".
