Led Zepplin-Stairway to Heaven:  A woman has spent her life worshipping the almighty dollar, so she will never get into heaven.

Black Sabbath-Iron Man:  A man travels to the future, sees the apocalypse, and while traveling back, is turned to steel...no one believes him, so he kills everyone, thus creating the apocalypse he saw.  (Yay for irony!)

I take it the only other people on this board have never met a southern person who wasn't either on the news, on tour with Jeff Foxworthy, or on Hee Haw.  Okay, fair enough.  I'm sure if somebody judged whatever group you are in by the absolute worst people in that group, and did it with a blatant tone of smug superiority, you wouldn't feel offended.

Sleater-Kinney - all of One Beat:  "I am not particularly a fan of George W Bush".

Flaming Lips - Fight Test:  "I lost a chick because I'm a passive wuss."

John Lennon - How Do You Sleep At Night:  "You suck Paul, you sellout."

Paul McCartney - Heart Like A Wheel:  "Look at me, I'm John!  I have Mommy issues!  Ooohhhh!"

Paul McCartney - Everything on every album since:  "...Okay, I am a sellout.  You got me."

I'll do a couple at random...

Tegan and Sara - Monday Monday Monday: You're acting like a jerk and I don't quite care for your behaviour but I still have a certain soft spot for you.
White Zombie - Blood, Milk and Sky: We're kinda creepy and haggard and this song may or may not be about drugs.
Pearl Jam - Breath: Life seems to be a little stifling so maybe you should get out and see the world before it is too late.
Anaal Nathrakh - The Oblivion Gene: Rarrrrr graaahell kraaaaaaaaaaooooooofiiiichaarrg!
Nine Inch Nails - All The Love In The World: You act like a jerk almost constantly and yet everybody thinks you're this amazing person and I feel this is unfair.
Grade - Bleeding Warm and Newly Dead: So we've been arguing a lot recently and it's making me feel bad about myself and life in general and I really hope things will get better soon.

I'm gonna do this with albums:

The Sword - "Age Of Winters"... We play a lot of D&D, really, a LOT!

Immolation - "Harnessing Ruin"... We are ever so slightly dissatisfied with religion and the state of the world as a whole.

Nick Drake - "Pink Moon"... I am not too happy with myself, and feel quite sad.

Jethro Tull - "Thick As A Brick"... We have an ambivalent relationship with the label "prog" and all the ensuing cliches, and thus we have decided to lovingly take the piss out of it, while still producing one of the genre's finest ever records.

I don't really agree with your sentence, and I'm too lazy to write my own right now (also don't have the song on hand) but I'd like to mention the line:

She looked like a lesbian revolutionary
so tough and scary I though maybe I
wouldn't try

'I eat boys like you for breakfast' she said
I said I'd like to make breakfast for you
ooo


It probably works better in song.
