Cluster F Bomb: Music

Will Smith don't gotta cuss in his raps to sell records
Well, I do
So fuck him and fuck you too
Eminem, "The Real Slim Shady"

As that old Mondegreen says: "Play that Fucking music, white boy!"
  • Many people associate this with rap in general. There's a pretty wide variance from rapper to rapper.
    • Special honorarily mention to "Fuck Martinez" by "2 Live Crew" - that's already 90% of the lyrics and it's tempting to list the song under Smurfing.
  • Nakayubi by Buck Tick. My Fuckin' Valentine and Jonathan Jet-Coaster are close.
  • Insane Clown Posse's "Fuck the World" holds the record of expletives, with 95 F-Words in 3:43 minutes. It declares this fact near the end: "Don't bother tryin' to analyze these rhymes / In this song I say 'Fuck' 93 times!" (at least, he says it 93 times - the extra 2 come from Jumpsteady, the brother of ICP member Violent J).
    • Tim Minchin, however, beats it in terms of density with the Pope Song, with 84 in 2:18 minutes. (.6/second versus .43/second)
  • Limp Bizkit's "Hot Dog" uses the F-word 48 times. It even lampshades: "If I say "Fuck", two more times, That's forty six 'Fucks' in this fucked up rhyme".
    • Also their song Break Stuff has fuck in almost every line; and if fuck isn't there then they say shit.
  • The song LAX by ska band Big D and The Kids Table.
  • Eamon's 2004 track "Fuck It (I Don't Want You Back)" holds the UK record of most expletives in a #1 song, with 33, 20 starting with F. Frankee, who alleged to be Eamon's girlfriend (he denied it), made a answer song titled "F.U.R.B. (Fuck You Right Back)", which contains 22 expletives (18 with F).
    • This song contains so many profanities that the censored version (in which all profanity has been deleted from the vocal track) neither sounds halfway right, nor does it make much sense.
  • The UK chart record for most expletives in a Top 40 song is "The Man Don't Give A Fuck" by Welsh space rock band Super Furry Animals, with 50 uses of the F-word in its 5 minute running time. Also, the live, 18 minute version contains over 100 F-words. Oh, and all the swears are from a line of a song by Steely Dan repeated over and over and over and over and...
  • "Houston" by Soul Coughing ends with 45 seconds of "Roller boogie motherfucker".
  • Frank Zappa's "Cocksuckers' Ball". Old but gold.
  • The British band Muse rarely uses profanities in their lyrics. But during their live-in-the-studio appearance on Spain's Radio 3, they were told that their songs couldn't contain any swearing. In response, Matt Bellamy replaced the first line of the third verse of the single "Feeling Good" with the lyrics: "Fucking, fucking, fucking, fucking little fucking, fucking little fucking, fucking fucker, yeah." They've been banned from Radio 3 ever since.
    • Don't forget this hidden track, which is often referred to as 'Fucking Motherfucker' by fans.
  • Eric Idle (of Monty Python fame) had the "FCC Song", where he expresses his anger towards the titular agency by using the word "fuck" fourteen times. It's also commonly referred to as the "Fuck the FCC" or "Fuck You Very Much, FCC" song.
    • The Python guys also beautifully subverted this trope with the song, I bet you they won't play this song on the radio where all the naughty bits are bleeped out, possibly making the song dirtier than if they were actually cussing.
    • Eric Idle later wrote a song entitled "Fuck Christmas". A sample:
    ''Fuck Christmas, It's a fucking Disney show
    Fuck carols and all that fucking snow
    Fuck reindeer and fuck Rudolph And his stupid fucking nose
    And fucking sleigh bells tinkling
    Everywhere you fucking goes
    Fuck stockings and fuck shopping
    It just drives us all insane.
    Go tell the elves to fuck themselves
    It's Christmas time again!''
  • Almost Anything by Rapper Lil B.
  • The Sex Pistols have a reputation for swearing, especially swearing involving the word "cunt" though they're fairly fond of the f-word as well. Here's a sample from from "Bodies":
    Fuck this and fuck that
    Fuck it all and fuck the fucking brat.
  • From 1982 through 1995, Kiss frontman Paul Stanley's between-song speeches were often peppered with gratuitous uses of the F-word, among other profanities. The cursing disappeared with the 1996 reunion of the original band, and a return to a more "family-friendly" image. Example here
    • Fuck was an alternative band name idea for Kiss. An additional joke would have been to name the albums "It", "You", "Off", and such.
  • The fact that "Fatboy Slim is fucking in heaven" surely deserves a mention (from the album You've Come a Long Way, Baby). According to The Other Wiki, it uses the loop 108 times.
  • The band Splatpattern would be completely unknown if not for their song Fucking Fucking Fuck, which can be found on the iTunes store, along with a censored version. It's amystery why they even bothered with the censored version.
  • Eminem's entire career is one big Cluster F-Bomb, as the opening quote on this page shows.
    ''Eminem's gotta cuss in his raps to sell records. Well me too, so fuck Will Smith!"
    • And then it's lampshaded on "Remember Me?"
    I'm trying to clean up my fuckin' image, so I promised the
  • During Woodstock, Country Joe and the Fish got the crowd of 500,000 to sing along to a song that starts with, "Give me a F! Give me a U! Give me a C! Give me a K! What's that spell?!".
  • Though "fuck" only being included 33 times makes it comparatively tame, "America Fuck Yeah" deserves a spot here out of sheer American jingoism. The first lines being "America - FUCK YEAH! Coming again to save the motherfucking day yeah!" should be enough.
  • Canadian comedy duo Bowser & Blue have a song called "Use Of The F Word In Canada", where they logically go through every grammatical and tonal use of the word ("the imperative", "the reflexive", "the ominous"), and also note that fuck isn't a bad word in Canada — "it's not even a word; it's simply a form of verbal punctuation".
    • However, Canada does have standards - Australian comedian Kevin Bloody Wilson released a song called "You Can't Say Cunt in Canada".
    • Also by Kevin Bloody Wilson: "Hey Santa Claus You Cunt!"
  • As is implied in the mention of The Proposition above, Nick Cave has occasionally lapsed into these. Since it's him, though, it's more scary than humorous.
    • Nick Cave: "I'll fuck Billy Dilly in his motherfucking ass"
  • Seattle band the Supersuckers have a 30 second ditty called "I Say Fuck". The song IS a Cluster F Bomb.
  • "So What" by the Anti-Nowhere League, a British punk band (it was also covered by Metallica on Garage Inc.). The song is based on the band members listening to two men in a bar going back and forth about things they've done in their life, each trying to top the other in vulgarity and audacity. It's a pretty safe bet that this song probably didn't see much radio play.
    • Metallica played this song, together with "Last Caress," during the 1996 MTV European Music Awards. And it was awesome.
    • While we're on the topic of Metallica, Ain't My Bitch (despite not having any actual f-bombs) fits this trope. As does St. Anger (the song) during its chorus.
  • Rage Against the Machine ends the song "Killing in the Name" by repeatedly chanting "Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me!"
    • Famously (or infamously), the uncensored version of "Killing in the Name" was played on BBC Radio 1's UK Top 40 chart show on a Sunday afternoon on February 21st 1993 thanks to Bruno Brookes, leading to 138 phone call complaints and causing him to be nearly sacked.
    • English DJ Jon Morter and his wife Tracy organised a campaign behind the song in 2009, to prevent The X Factor winner getting the Christmas Number 1 in the UK for the fifth year running. The campaign was successful, helped by {Simon Cowell} declaring it "stupid and cynical." Rage Against The Machine played a thank-you concert in Finsbury Park the following year, handing a cheque for £160,000 to the Morters, representing their royalties from the sales and further Just Giving donations, for the homeless charity Shelter.
      • During the campaign Rage Against The Machine played the song live and uncensored on BBC Radio 5 Live, despite hosts Shelagh Fogarty and Nicky Campbell asking for a clean version. Shelagh and Nicky were forced to make an apology afterwards. Considering that the song rails against censorship and conformity, they should have seen it coming.
  • Reel Big Fish's "Another F-U Song": 'Fuck living, fuck dying, fuck laughing, fuck crying, fuck this song, but mostly fuck you. Fuck loving and friends, fuck following trends, fuck this song, can't wait till it ends'.
    • "Fuck everything! (but fuck you the most.) Fuck everyone! (But fuck you the most.) With a big rusty pole or a splintery post, yeah, fuck you the most. Fuck you!" The best part of this song being that it's entirely upbeat and cheerful.
    • Link here. Prepare to laugh at the Cluster F Bomb-ness!
  • Of course, ska bands do this a lot. One gem from Big D and the Kids Table is "L.A.X":
    Well first of all, fuck your fucking attitudes.
    How can you be so fucking rude?
    You fucking look at me like when girls are jealous.
    And fuck your fucking L.A. bars,
    You're all a bunch of wannabe superstars.
    Yeah, fuck your fucking act,
    You're a bunch of dressed up fucking rats."
  • The Buzzcocks "Oh Shit!", which ends 'Admit, you're shit, you're shit, you're shit. Admit, admit, you're shit, you're shit, you're shit, you're shit, you're shit'. But only one 'fuck' in the whole song.
  • While no longer holding any records, it is amusing to note NWA's "Fuck tha Police" is 12.1% profanity with a solid 42 seconds of the song being unplayable on the radio.
  • We simply cannot go without mentioning Wednesday 13 / The Frankenstein Drag Queens From Planet 13 / Murderdolls's "I Love to Say Fuck!". There's nothing quite like being in a live crowd all singing along.
  • The track "X-plicit" on the Evangelion: VOX album. Apparently, it's supposed to represent someone's reaction to that scene where Shinji masturbates over Asuka's comatose body.
  • Many rock band concerts are loaded with this. For example, a recent concert by Mötley Crüe had singer Vince Neil mention, after a pre-adolescent was brought up on the stage, that he doesn't let his children say fuck, after which he says to the child's parents (still in the audience), "I'm fucking sorry about that."
  • The song "K@#0%!" by Korn has roughly 10 seconds of radio-friendly audio. The rest of the song is a string of nearly any obscenity one can imagine.
    • Their song "Y'All Want a Single" (a protest against the music industry) has 87 instances of the F-word. The chorus goes "Y'all want a single say fuck that, Fuck that, Fuck that!" three times.
    • "Break Some Off", from the same album. has a breakdown where Davis growls eight Atomic F Bombs in a row to the beat.
  • The Amateur Transplants' "London Underground".
    "Where the fuck's my fucking train?!/London Underground (London Underground)/They're all lazy fucking useless cunts..."
  • A pearl of wisdom coming from a Brazilian funk song: "The fucking cunt is mine and I can fuck whoever I want with it!"
    • Most Brazilian funk songs are loaded with F-words and the like.
  • Black Sheep's "For Doz Dat Slept" applies this trope to baroque.
  • Evidently Chickentown by John Cooper Clarke. Just one of the verses: The fucking pies are fucking old/The fucking chips are fucking cold/The fucking beer is fucking flat/The fucking flats have fucking rats/The fucking clocks are fucking wrong/The fucking days are fucking long/It fucking gets you fucking down/Evidently chicken town.
  • Fuck You, by Norther is an obvious example.
  • "I'm On A Boat" by The Lonely Island. "Fuck land, I'm on a boat, motherfucker"
    • Their other songs contain enough four-letter words that quoting them to excess led to their page on this wiki being deleted for "shouting of obscenities for no reason."
    • Want to hear Natalie Portman drop a massive ClusterFBomb?
  • Anything by DJ Felamanski, but most notably "Fuck That Bitch". (That's pretty much the entire lyrics.)
  • Somewhat subverted by Ozzy Osbourne. Those who were introduced to him through The Osbournes would assume that his music was laden with swearing (given that Ozzy and his entire fucking family swear their asses off. It wouldn't be surprising if the barking dogs were swearing in doggy language.) However, his music is practically devoid of "fuck". Only two songs with the word come to mind. However, his stage banter makes up for the loss, with concerts often beginning with his yells of "I CAN'T FUCKING HEAR YOU!".
    • Similar case: Bruce Dickinson is prone to F-bomb rants, and yelling "FUCKING SCREAM IT!" on stage. His solo career is profanity free. And Iron Maiden, besides some b-sides recorded as jokes (among them, a discussion), has only one song with profanity ("I've lived in filth, I've lived in sin, and I still smell cleaner than the shit you're in!").
      • There is another Maiden studio track ("The Thin Line Between Love and Hate") that includes a couple of f-bombs, though Studio Chatter than in the actual song itself. At the end of the track, which closes Bruce's first album back with the band, right after the song ends you hear drummer Nicko McBrain say "Ah, I fucking missed it," then laughing and saying "Did I get that on tape? 'I fucking missed it!'"
    • Also, the Foo Fighters have a few Precision F-Strike songs... but Dave Grohl swears copiously in live performances and interviews.
  • Slipknot's first two albums were rife with F bombs and other profanities. However, Vol. 3 The Subliminal Verses doesn't have any swearing stronger than "Jesus", and All Hope Is Gone only has a handful of F bombs, just enough to earn a Parental Advisory label.
  • "Hollaback Girl" by Gwen Stefani has 38 shits in 200 seconds: "this my shit" in the first verse, a "talking shit" in the second, four "shit is bananas" in the fourth, and eight "this my shit" in each of four choruses.
  • "Stupid MF" by Mindless Self Indulgence.
    • Not to mention "Shut Me Up" by the same band.
    • "Shut Me Up" is actually rather minor, considering the band. Try "Bitches," "Backmask," "Holy Shit," "Bullshit," "Never Wanted To Dance..." It would be easier to list songs by them that DON'T have swearing, actually.
  • "Family Reunion" by {{Blink 182} is almost entirely composed of cuss words, primarily because it's a reference to George Carlin's "Seven Words You Can't Say On Television" bit.
    • The song was originally released on a compilation called "Short Music for Short People", featuring 101 different punk, ska/punk, and hardcore bands doing 30 second songs. About a third of them were nothing but profanities or otherwise scatological jokes.
  • Soundgarden's "Big Dumb Sex" uses the F-word in the... Biblical sense, to parody songs which metaphorically talk about sex. The straight and repetitive chorus ("Hey, I know what to do! I'm gonna fuck fuck fuck fuck you!") leads to over 20 F-bombs.
    • Speaking of Soundgaden, "Ty Cobb" is another one of their most explicit tracks ("Hard-headed, fuck you all! Hard-headed, fuck you all!").
  • System Of a Down's song Fuck The System, among others.
  • While the studio version is profanity-free, the 10 minute live version of "Stigmata" from Ministry's In Case You Didn't Feel Like Showing Up suddenly turns into an f-bomb filled rant towards the end ("Fuck me! Fuck you! Fuck everyone! Fuck the church! Fuck Jesus!" and so on). Parodied by Wckr Spgt: their cover of the song consists of nothing but this for a minute and a half, with some original additions ("Fuck Japan! Fuck Hawaii, it's near Japan!").
  • The Rolling Stones' "Star Star", from the Goats Head Soup album, is better known to many fans as "Starfucker", due to that word's repeated appearance in the song's chorus. (Indeed, "Starfucker" was originally intended to be the actual title of the song before Ahmet Ertegun, head of the band's then-distributor Atlantic Records, made them change it.)
  • Skrillex's "Fuck That" is nothing more than "Fuck that beat up" looped over and over.
  • The German band Knorkator has a song called Ich will nur ficken (I just want to fuck). The chorus translates to: "I just want to fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck / I just want to fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck".
    • To be fair, about half their songs are nothing but shouting and swearing. It's hilarious.
  • Die Ärzte do this in German, too, and like Kiss between the songs. They use the word "ficken" (German for "fuck") so often that the only way to top it was to write a song in which this one word would be sung again and again and nothing else. And they actually made such a song for this purpose.
  • Staind's song Waste:
    Well fuck that!
    And fuck her!
    And fuck him!
    And fuck you!
  • Nobody mentioned Oasis? The Gallagher brothers' quotes, interviews, blogs, and casual conversations are laced with this (not the lyrics, though).
    • Apart from once, 'Pass Me Down The Wine', b-side to 'The Importance Of Being Idle'.
  • Self's "Trunk Fulla Amps" consists of three elements: electronic noises from toys, the names of famous musicians, and the repeated lines
    I got a trunk fulla amps, motherfucker
    Like [insert musician's name] motherfucker!
  • Standard way of rapping for Bodycount's Ice Motherfuckin' T Bitch.
  • The child abuse rant in Down with the Sickness by Disturbed.
    • Their song Liberate. Says it 16 times.
  • Yoshiki of X Japan. Look up "Yoshiki curses at staff member" and for an in-concert example, "Yoshiki you guys fucking rock" on Youtube. Vocalist Toshi also fits this trope, due to his onstage antics at the LA Wiltern show.
  • The chorus to Marilyn Manson's "Irresponsible Hate Anthem": "Fuck it! Fuck it! Fuck it! Fuck fuck fuck!"
    • It's "Arma-Goddamn-Motherfucking-Geddon"!
    • Also the song "Para-Noir", which features the word "fuck" 31+ times. Fuck you because I loved you, fuck you for loving me too...
  • Cleverly subverted by the Irish band The Script. They have a song about a guy who screws up his relationship with his girlfriend, a woman named Kay, and so he asks people that if they run into her, can they pass on a message for him? The song is titled, "If you see Kay." A lot of people never got it.
    • In which case you have to include Britney Spears here, for her song "If you seek Amy tonight"...
  • Underground hip-hop group Extended F@mm promoted Happy F* ck You Songs, with an average of 4.5 swear words per minute. And it features profanity at 200bpm... curiosity of member Tonedeff.
  • Averted in Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge by My Chemical Romance, in which the word "fuck" is used only once in the whole album. This is balanced out during the band's live tours, as anyone who has gone to a show can tell you.
    • "Our Lady Of Sorrows" is this. Not as extreme as some examples, but it says 'fucking' eight times in a two minute song.
  • Maynard James Keenan doesn't swear too terribly much on his music, particularly when compared to others listed on. Ænima (from the album of that name) is the song that comes up on a google search of "Tool Lyrics Fuck", and with good reason - It has the highest amount of swearing in it, with 15 Fucks (including "Fuck L Ron Hubbard and fuck all his clones") and 6 shits, and the "fucks" are easily distinguishable in radio edits with the "f" and the "k" still audible.
  • Thrash Metal Band Gama Bomb lets out one of these in the track, "Sentenced to Thrash". "Off to the big house, you're out of luck. how do you plead? Guilty as FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK!"
  • Primal Scream's "Pills" has 31 occurrences of the word "fuck" in 40 seconds to close out a veiled political diatribe.
  • King Missile's The Psychopathology Of Everyday Life mainly earns it's parental advisory sticker due to one song and a recurring series of poems: "The President" is a 3 minute rant against George W. Bush that borders on angrish and contains 61 uses of the word "fuck", while "The Pain Series" is a set of equally profanity-filled reactions to physical pain, the causes ranging from hitting one's thumb with a hammer to getting a paper cut. "Martin Scorsese" definitely qualifies as well.
  • A lot of Ween songs are good examples of this trope, especially on their more punk influenced songs like "Pumpin' 4 The Man."
  • This soldiers' song from World War II, complaining about being stationed in the town of Halkirk in Scotland:
    This fucking town's a fucking cuss
    No fucking trams, no fucking bus
    Nobody cares for fucking us
    In fucking Halkirk

    No fucking sports, no fucking games
    No fucking fun, the fucking dames
    Won't even give their fucking names
    In fucking Halkirk
    ...And there's ten more verses.
  • Inward Singing by Tenacious D. Skip towards near the end for good old fucking cluster-F-bombs!
    Shut up! Fuck you! You fucking dick! Always naysaying everything I create! You piece of shit! You create something like inward singing! You fucking shit! You fucking sit in your tower! Fucking nap- What's funny? You fucking bitch! Fucking fuck you! Fucking cock ass!!
    • A little tamer, but certainly worthy, would be "Hard Fucking" and "Fuck Her Gently."
    • From the song Kickapoo:
    It was I who fucked the dragon/fuckalizing fuckaloo/and if you try to fuck with me/then I shall fuck you too...
    • In The Pick of Destiny, the Devil is introduced in a cluster f-bomb set to the song Beezleboss
    The D: FUUUUUUUK—
    The Devil: Yes you are fucked! Shit out of luck! I am now free and my cock you will suck!
  • Detroit Metal City has this fucking down with the track off the fuck-awesome live-action movie sound track "Fuckingham Palace". 3:20 long, and most of that shit is just a fucking continuous string of "fuck"s. The total fucking count ranges from what you consider counts. Moderate fucking counts start as low as 200.
  • Nick Cave's incredibly foulmouthed version of "Stagger Lee"
  • Angelspit, Lust Worthy. "Fuck you for selling it, fuck you for buying it, fuck him for making it, fuck it all."
    • Another Angelspit example is Fuck Fashion: Fuck fashion, fuck (fuck) fashion. Suck my addiction 'cause you got to fuck fashion, fuck (fuck) fashion. Spit out victims fashion FUCK YOU.
  • Tim Minchin's poignant Pope Song.
    If you don't like the swearing that this motherfucker forced from me
    And reckon it shows moral or intellectual paucity
    Then fuck you, motherfucker; this is language one employs
    When one is fucking cross about fuckers fucking boys!
  • Mercenary by The Mission is a long list of insults about an unidentified recipient. Roughly half do not involve swearing, although the first line sets up a high ratio.
  • In her song Mercyfuck Mary Prankster wishes she could fuck all her sorrow away and fuck 'til the dawn of the next fucking day, fuck the chorus and verse, fuck the pain getting worse, fuck it all...
  • Korn? Eric Idle? Pussies. Here's Alexei Sayle, showing you how it's done.
  • Alan Cumming makes this a declaration of love on his album "I Bought A Blue Car Today".
    You're fucking beautiful
    And when I kiss your lips
    I hear those fucking angels sing
    [...]
    So give me a fucking break
    And be my fucking turtle dove
    Because it's fuck-fuck-fuck-fuck
    fuck-fuck-fuck-fuck-fucking love!
  • A song consisting wholly of sampled swearing, of all things.
  • "Rockin' the Suburbs" by Ben Folds.
    You better look out because I'm gonna say "fuck".
    You better look out because I'm gonna say "fuck".
    You better look out because I'm gonna say "fuck".
    You better look out because I'm gonna say "fuck".
    You better look out because I'm gonna say "fuck".
    You better look out because I'm gonna say "fuck".
  • The Front Bottoms song "Swimming Pool" uses a voicemail in the bridge featuring the speaker (apparently the father of a friend of theirs) berating the recipient (the son) over his handling of a breakup and manages to use fuck in some form or another about 14-15 times in a little over 30 seconds. Despite that, they decided to make this their second single
  • "House Party" by 3OH!3
    Everybody say fuck the clubs (FUCK THE CLUBS)
    Fuck the clubs (FUCK THE CLUBS)
    Fuck the clubs (FUCK THE CLUBS)
    I’m not going out
    Everybody say fuck the clubs (FUCK THE CLUBS)
    Fuck the clubs (FUCK THE CLUBS)
    Fuck the clubs (FUCK THE CLUBS)
    I’ll be getting love in my house
  • "Fuck the Shit", by Sons of Butcher. For the audio/link-deprived, here are the lyrics in their entirety:
    Fuck the shit / Fuck the fucking shit fuck / Shit the fuck / Shit the shitting fuck shit / Shit fuck / Fuck shit / Shit fuck / Fuck shit / Fuck the shit / Fuck the fucking shit fuck / Shit the fuck / Shit the shitting fuck shit / Fuck the shit / Fuck yeah
  • Cee Lo Green's viral sensation "Fuck You!" probably qualifies. Better still, it's received Grammy nominations for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Urban/Alternative Performance.
    • The censored version, "Forget You", is notable for actually working pretty well, rhythm-wise. And then there's the chicken cover for The Muppets...
  • Children of Bodom are quite prone to using profanity, but the song "In Your Face" gets special mention for its chorus:
    I don't give a flying fuck, motherfucker!
    I don't give a flying fuck, motherfucker!
    I don't give a flying,
    I don't give a flying,
    I don't give a flying FUCK!
    Fuckin' music...how does it work?
  • Latin-American example: "Ch bah, puta la wea!" by Chilean group Los Pettinellis is all about this trope.
  • Reggie Watts of Maktub created the song Fuck Shit Stack as a Take That at modern rap culture.
    You take some fuck
    Then some shit
    Then some fuck
    Then some shit
    You got a fuck shit stack
    A fuck shit stack
    It's a stack of fuck shit
    On top of itself, nigger
  • The Offspring begins "Sesson" with:
    Aw, fuck! Fuck, fuck, FUCK!!
    • Also, in Bad Habit - "Drivers are rude, such attitude. When I show my piece complaints cease. Something's odd, feel like I'm God, you stupid, dumbshit, goddamn, motherfucker!!"
  • Wire's "Mr. Suit" is a Stealth Parody of this trope, especially "Bodies".
  • Dope's "Die MF Die".
  • Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz' "I Don't Give A Fuck" (featuring Mystikal and Krayzie Bone) features 151 curses in the span of 3:41 — roughly one curse every second and a half — with the majority predictably being variations of the word "fuck."
    • The same group's "Real Nigga Roll Call" is a combination of Cluster F Bomb and Cluster N Bomb: 159 N-bombs during just over 5 minutes.
    Ya'll niggaz can't fuck wit my niggaz ho!
  • S.O.D.' s "What's That Noise" is an outtake of an unused song, where something keeps making a mysterious noise, thus ruining the song. Billy Milano was not happy.
    ALEX, FIX THE FUCKIN' THING.. WHAT THE FLYIN' FUCK IS GOING ON AROUND HERE! FIX THE FUCKIN' THING, MAN! WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT FUCKIN NOISE?!?! WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT FUCKIN' NOISE?!?! I can't fuckin' take this anymore...
And that's just the last few seconds.
  • A Wilhelm Scream's entire career, but specifically the song "Brand New Me, Same Shitty You":
    Flip the fucking lever on the light switch.
    Turn that fucking fan all the way up.
    I'm gonna get first fucking place for the worst fucking attitude
    And I don't give a fuck at all.
  • Schaffer the Darklord's songs have a tendency to get into this, featuring titles like "Attack of the Clonefucker". Most egregiously features in the song "Fuck This Song" which is a song literally about saying "fuck"
  • "Platypus (I Hate You)" by Green Day probably contains the most swearing from Billie Joe Armstrong in one song.
    DICKHEAD,
    FUCKFACE,
    COCKSMOKING,
    MOTHERFUCKING,
    ASSHOLE,
    DIRTY TWAT,
    WASTE OF SEMEN,
    I HOPE YOU DIE,
    HEY!
    • Or possibly "The Grouch", which signs off each verse with "fuck you", as well as describing life as a bitch and chronicling the narrator's erectile dysfunction.
    • And when Green Day's show gets cut short, the response could only be fucking hostile.
  • FAQU by Cripper, as the Mondegreen title suggests. They sound like they had some fun recording it.
  • Warrant put a hidden track on their album Cherry Pie called "Ode to Tipper Gore," which consists entirely of Jani Lane swearing at concerts.
  • Steve Earle's "F The CC" does pretty much the same thing as the Eric Idle song above.
    Fuck the FCC!
    Fuck the FBI!
    Fuck the CIA!
    Livin' in the motherfuckin' USA!
  • Mylo - Drop The Pressure:
    Motherfucker's gonna drop the pressure (the only lyric in the song)
  • Veteran F-bombers The Wildhearts subverted the trope Python-style with their 2007 single The Sweetest Song, the radio edit of which had to be bleeped so heavily that the verses are all but unintelligible. The point about censorship is underlined by the way the verses deal with a serious subject while the chorus is generic throwaway pop-rock.
  • "It's Yours" by kHz:
    This motherfucker has no shame
    This motherfucker wants his fame
    This motherfucker sold his soul
    This motherfucker wants it all
    It's motherfuckin' yours, so go get it
  • Nearly every line of the Butthole Surfers' song "Goofy's Concern" starts with the words "I don't give a fuck about...". Oddly enough, that didn't stop the song from being used as a Repurposed Pop Song in a Super Nintendo commercial: The ad edited the track to be mostly instrumental, except for the lines "I don't care who you want me to be / I don't care what you want me to see", the only consecutive lyrics in the entire song that could be played on TV without any censorship.
  • Lily Allen has "Fuck you", in which she drops about 30 in the chorus alone. All to cheerful showtune-style music.
  • During every Yellow Fried Chickenz live concert, Gackt rips of his shirt and launches one of these.
  • Bring Me The Horizon's song "Fuck". Need I say more?
  • Bands like Emmure or The Acacia Strain tend to be pretty liberal with their "fucks". Quite a bit of other "bro-core" bands qualify as well.
  • The climax of The Doors' "The End" has Jim Morrison chanting "Fuck" over and over.
  • In general, Slayer's music has very little swearing. However, two songs off God Hates Us All are heavily prone to this trope.
  • "DIE MOTHERFUCKER DIE YOU PIECE OF SHIT FUCKING LOW LIFE!" (Suicide Commando)
  • Although replaced with an electric guitar riff in its place, possibly the first song to contain the word "fuck" that topped either one of the three major Billboard singles charts — country, R&B or Hot 100 — was Del Reeves' "Girl on the Billboard," in May 1965. The song is about a long-distance truck driver who falls in love with the image of a scantily clad woman on a billboard along a busy highway; the lyric in question comes late in the song where the truck driver, horrified to learn that an artist had painted over the woman, confronts the painter, who then tells him "Girl wasn't real, better get the (bleep) on my way!"
  • Anything by Blood Kry$tal Wolf, a Seattle witch-hop duo (basically industrial meets Gangsta Rap).
  • Swedish rocker Eddie Meduza was infamous for his obscene lyrics (even though at heart, he was a serious composer who had written a great deal of straight Rock, Blues and Pop songs). One of his most infamous songs is called "Fruntimme ska en ha å knulle mä" ("Your supposed to fuck with women") which is so misogynistic that it Crosses the Line Twice, basically describing how women should live in complete sexual and social subjugation to men. He recorded several versions of it, among them a "naughty" version wich ends with Eddie screaming NOTHING but obscene nouns for a FULL MINUTE! ("WANKING! FUCKING! PISSING,SHITTING, FUCKING!" etc.)
  • Math Rock act Shellac unleashed what may be the most intense cluster f-bomb on this page in the song "Prayer To God" from their 1000 Hurts album. How did they do that? Well, first take Steve Albini, one of the most legendarily irate men in independent music, then steal his wife. The result is a minute and a half of him yelling variations on "Fuckin' kill him." Yeah.
  • Damien Rice provides a radio-friendly-while-still-emo opening to "Rootless Tree," which then promptly dissolves as the singer wails "FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU" into the microphone as the instrumentals swell.
  • The Movement - "Jump (Motherfucker Mix)". "Are you motherfuckers ready? Jump motherfucker jump motherfucker jump!(many times) That's some jumping motherfuckers".
  • Edguy has a few of these, most notably in "New Age Messiah":
    PARDON FUCKING ME
    WHO THE FUCKING FUCK IS JESUS?
    MOTHERFUCKING NEW MESSIAH
    FOR THE FUCKING WORLD!
  • The explicit version of "Forget You" by Cee-Lo.
  • As mentioned on the Video Games page, Rockin' the Mic from Jet Set Radio Future. While it doesn't use the F-word (this is in a Teen-rated game, after all), it does use the S-word and the N-word, and it uses them a LOT.
  • Though most Suicidal Tendencies music in profane, Suicidal For Life in particular was an attempt at so much profanity that it would alienate fans who knew of them as a mainstream metal band. Of particular note are these song titles (in order on disk): "Don't Give a Fuck", "No Fuck'n Problem", "Suicyco Mothafucka", "Fucked Up Just Right", and "No Bullshit".
  • While it's taken for granted now, back in the early days of Metal in-song swearing was about as common as facial hair. Pantera were one of the bands to popularize both of these. Their 1992 album Vulgar Display of Power has a song on it called "Fucking Hostile" which features the song title in the chorus, and uses the f-word multiple times in each verse. The end of the song is "fucking" being said four times before the title is dropped one last time.
  • "Nigga Nigga Nigga" by Gangsta Rap is all one big Cluster N-Bomb.
    Nigga nigga nigga nigga nigga nigga nigga, Why you call yourself a nigga?
    Nigga nigga nigga nigga nigga nigga nigga, Cause I'm a motherfucking nigga!
  • Black Moth Super Rainbow's "Hairspray Heart" has the following passage repeated twice in a row, making ten repetitions of the word "fucking":
    Like a fuckin' diamond
    Like a fuckin' diamond
    Like a fuckin' diamond
    Like a fuckin' diamond
    Fallin' from my fuckin' eye
    • It stands out because they've hardly ever used any such language in songs before, and these particular lines seem to have single-handedly earned the album Cobra Juicy their first parental advisory sticker.
    • "Eruption (Gonna Get My Hair Cut At The End Of Summer)", a solo single by their vocalist Tobacco, easily beats "Hairspray Heart" in terms of profanity, thanks to passages like "Lick that popsicle / like a motherfuckin' babe in the motherfuckin' wood / It's a nice fuckin' day and I'm feelin' fuckin' good".
  • Quite a few songs by Strapping Young Lad could qualify, but special mention should go to "You Suck," which includes 27 f-bombs in under 3 minutes, most of which are contained in a couple of 30-second bursts filled with lines like "I don't give a fuck, you fucking fuck."
  • MC Lyte Crosses the Line Twice with "Fuck that Motherfucking Bullshit".
  • Robbie Williams ended his album "Rudebox" with the rude "Dickhead".
  • "War" by Hed P.E.:
    I go to the club
    Get fucked up
    Get my dick sucked
    I don't give a fuck
    I'm an American
  • Daft Punk's Alive 2007 tour features a remix of 'Technologic' that features the phrase 'fuck it' made from 'lock it' and 'fill it' 24 times in succession.
  • Lordi's "Sincerely with love" from their album To beast otr not to beast features the phrase "fuck you" 26 times.
  • The Beach Boys with 1974's "Rollin' Up To Heaven".
  • 311's "Fat Chance", AKA "Fuck the Bullshit
  • Played with in MC Mr. Napkins' "F Bombs": At first, it seems like the joke is that it's profanity-free and the "f-bombs" of the title are just inoffensive words with the syllable "ef" in them (e.g. "Learn a thing or two, and stop confronting me / with your inefficient ephemeral effrontery"). However, halfway through the song he repeats the verse again "with the f-bombs back in it" (e.g. "Learn a thing or two, and stop confronting me / with your infuckicient fuckemeral fuckfrontery")
  • Nine Inch Nails' "Starfuckers, Inc." (natch) contains 30 instances of "fuck", far more than any NIN song before or since.
  • Awolnation's song Mf contains six uses of the titular curse per chorus.
  • Guns N' Roses are famous for using the word "Fuck" a lot. Appetite didn't really see it used that much. Most noticable on Appetite is "You're Crazy", which was even originally called "You're Fucking Crazy". Then there's Use Your Illusion 1&2, which feature some slightly more aggressive lyrics, especially "Get In The Ring", which probably features the word more times than any other Guns N' Roses-song. And then, in 2008, Chinese Democracy was released, which features the song "Riad N' The Bedouins", which is the only track on the album, where the word "Fuck" actually appears (but he makes sure it appears, as early as line 3).
    Riad N' The Bedouins
    Had a plan and thought they'd win
    But I don't give a fuck 'bout them
    'cause I am crazy!
  • Jonathan Coulton's "First of May" drops thirteen of these. Quite unexpected the first time around.
  • Several of Iggy Azalea's songs have several of these.
  • "Fxxk Boyz Get Money", by FEMM. Eighty-three instances of the word "fuck". ICP might have competition.
  • TISM's "The Last Australian Guitar Hero", especially this line:
    "Have you seen those fuckin' clubbers
    In their peroxided dreads?
    Dressed up in fuckin' adidas
    Like fuckin' fucked fuckheads"
