* LyricalDissonance: In some circles, "Semi-Charmed Life" is famous for this. In fact, it was most likely chosen as music to accompany the trailer for ''Disney/TheTiggerMovie'' because the people putting the trailer together didn't know what it was actually about. Sure, the catchy, energetic beat is very fitting for a character like Tigger, but let's not forget that the song is about doing crystal meth ([[AccidentallyAccurate though when you consider how hyperactive Tigger is...]]). Luckily, none of the lyrics that explicitly refer to crystal meth made it into the trailer.

Third Eye Blind is a commercially successful AlternativeRock band that emerged during the late 1990s (though, as the article says, "Alternative Rock" certainly wasn't the "alternative" at the time). Their story begins with the release of their SelfTitledAlbum in 1997. The band catapulted to fame on the back of the album's two big-hit singles: "Semi-Charmed Life", a wildly upbeat and [[EarWorm extremely catchy]] song about a man suffering from a crystal meth addiction, and the powerful anti-suicide ballad "Jumper".

Added DiffLines:

* AnswerSong: "Semi-Charmed Life" was written as one to Music/LouReed's "Walk on the Wild Side".

Added DiffLines:

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: When they [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2WUyaNgFH8 performed "Graduate"]] at the 1999 American Music Awards, instead of singing "Can I graduate?!", they intentionally changed it to "[[ADateWithRosiePalms Can I masturbate?!]]".

Added DiffLines:

* NonAppearingTitle: Jumper, Darwin, a few others.
* RefrainFromAssuming: Jumper (likely since it's a NonAppearingTitle) often gets called "I would understand" as well as a few other repeated lyrical excerpts.
* PrecisionFStrike: Darwin (from Blue) has the line "the spaceman fucked an ape, then cut out on a date".

Added DiffLines:

* MyLifeFlashedBeforeMyEyes: The premise of "My Hit and Run" from ''Out of the Vein''. The narrator is a motorcyclist who gets hit by a car, and while he's flying through the air, he thinks back on his life and sees the person he's singing the song to. The song ends with:
---> "I'd like to thank Mr. Death now for what he's done, 'cause I got to walk away from [[TitleDrop my hit and run]], life's mysteries are not so empty now. Because I saw you, at my hit and run."


* TalkingDownTheSuicidal: "Talk You Down" is actually about a relationship, but uses the imagery of talking someone down off a ledge to convince them not to destroy it.
