* Subverted in ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'':
** When Calvin buys a record from a band whose songs "glorify depraved violence, mindless sex, and the deliberate abuse of dangerous drugs". When Hobbes predicts Calvin's mom throwing a fit, Calvin tosses the record into the trash since that's the main reason he got it.
** Calvin asks his mother for money so he can buy a Satan-worshiping, pro-suicide metal album. She explains to him that they're OnlyInItForTheMoney, which is enough to put him off the idea.
--->'''Calvin's Mom:''' Calvin, the fact that these bands haven't killed themselves in ritual self-sacrifice shows that they're just in it for the money like everyone else. It's all for effect. If you want to shock and provoke, be sincere about it.
--->'''Calvin:''' Mainstream commercial nihilism can't be trusted?!
