** The Python guys also beautifully subverted this trope with the song, ''I Bet You They Won't Play This Song On The Radio'', from ''AudioPlay/MontyPythonsContractualObligationAlbum'', where all the naughty bits are bleeped out, possibly making the song dirtier than if they were actually cussing.

** Their song "Y'All Want a Single" (a protest against the music industry) isn't as much of a Cluster F-Bomb as it is a ''Carpet F-Bomb''. It has 89 instances of the F-word at the impressive mark of under 3 minutes and 20 seconds. The chorus goes "Y'all want a single say fuck that, Fuck that, Fuck that!" four times, some times with two additional "fuck that"s done by a backing vocal.

* Music/TheRollingStones' "Star Star", from the ''Music/GoatsHeadSoup'' 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 Ertegün, head of the band's then-distributor Atlantic Records, made them change it.)

* Music/GunsNRoses are famous for using the word "Fuck" a lot. Most noticable on ''Music/AppetiteForDestruction'' is "You're Crazy", which was even originally called "You're Fucking Crazy". Then there's ''Music/UseYourIllusion'' 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).

* Played with in MC Mr. Napkins' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ax_IpfWDCTY "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")
