Real Men Wear Pink / Music

Go To

  • "Weird Al" Yankovic's "Truck Driving" song plays this for laughs, with the song starting out talking about a manly truck driver...who wears high heels and various other feminine accessories.
  • Monty Python's "The Lumberjack Song".
  • Johnny Cash's "A Boy Named Sue" is a country music song about a boy named Sue by his absent father. In it, Sue hunts down his absent father to find out why and learns it was done specifically so Sue would grow up strong, which he did, thanks to constant fights with bullies. Sue finds this out after beating the crap out of his father, and in the end, is so moved that he decides to name his own son..."Bill! Or George! Any damn thing but Sue! I still hate that name!"

  • Manowar's cover of "Nessun Dorma". It works surprisingly well.
  • Cam'ron, a rapper with subject matter consisting of crack sales and gangsta lifestyles, began the whole pink phase in Hip Hop. Initially, people mocked his style before swagger jacking it completely. Soon after it became uncool and thankfully died. Ironically Cam'ron was one of the first to stop wearing pink.
  • An unnamed rogue in a song from Cranius has this. The entire song and video are about how most rogues prefer to kill all day, but he would rather be out picking flowers.
  • Brad Paisley's "I'm Still A Guy" is either a Deconstruction of this trope, or evidence that he's unaware of its existence. The song is largely about the narrator feeling persecuted because he still holds onto traditionally masculine traits while the culture turns against them.

  • The Darkness' "I Believe In A Thing Called Love" is a loud, drum-heavy rock song about...well, believing in love.
