Verses and vignettes: Some violent lyrics and scenes

A Clockwork Orange - The lead character Alex de Large gets involved in "ultraviolence," robbing a woman and killing her by dropping a giant ceramic penis on her.

Aliens - In the film's climax, Lance Henriksen is gored by the alien mother's tail. Yikes.

American History X - Contains the infamous curb scene where Edward Norton's character Derek Vinyard gives a would-be carjacker a "smiley" by smashing his face against the curb.

Black Hawk Down - In a pivotal scene, one character is attempting to fend off literally hundreds of Somalians. He is struck by bullet after bullet and basically picked apart.

Dead Presidents - On a patrol, one soldier steps on a land mine. Pieces of him land by Chris Tucker.

Full Metal Jacket - The scene at Paris Island where a young Vincent D'Onofrio shoots drill instructor R. Lee Ermey starts the violence and it comes to a head when Matthew Modine shoots a female sniper; she then begs him to kill her.

Kill Bill - The last half hour contains more violence than many other action flicks combined as limb after limb is severed.

Natural Born Killers - Who isn't killed in this movie?

Reservoir Dogs - As Michael Madsen dances to Stealer's Wheel's "Stuck in the Middle with You," he cuts the ear of a young patrolman.

Saving Private Ryan - The initial twenty minutes of the film is strictly centred around an invasion soaked with blood, blood and more blood.

Britney Spears: "Hit Me Baby One More Time" - self-explanatory

Dixie Chicks: "Goodbye Earl" - "We need a break/ Lets go out to the lake Earl/ We'll pack a lunch, and stuff you in the trunk, Earl."

Eminem: "Kim" - "Don't you get it bitch, no one can hear you / Now shut the fuck up and get what's coming to you/ You were supposed to love me/ Now bleed, bitch, bleed!"

Marilyn Manson: "Cake and Sodomy" - "White trash get down on your knees/ Time for cake and sodomy."

Nine Inch Nails: "Big Man With a Gun" - "I am a big man and I have a big gun/ Got me a big old dick and I like to have fun/ Held against your forehead/ I'll make you suck it/ Maybe I'll put a hole in your head/ You know, just for the fuck of it."

Ozzy Osbourne: "Suicide Solution" - "Wine is fine but whiskey's quicker/ Suicide is slow with liquor/ Take a bottle and drown your sorrows/ Then it floods away tomorrows."

Public Enemy: "Cop Killer" - "Cop killer, better you than me/ Cop killer, fuck police brutality."
