A cracking chance to plug the mighty The Sisters of Mercy (more pop 
counterculture than pop culture, perhaps, but nonetheless...)

From 'Valentine' 

The razor bites and the shriek subsides
He arches clutching at his sides
Across the floor across the tiles
The man is dead and the razor smiles
A shiny love song a quick incision
Cut him down on television

From '(Amphetamine) logic':

Watch them do / The falling over
Watch them do / The standing still
Nothing but the knife to live for / One life, all I need
Give me one good reason / Give me more Speed

(Women) And the women come and go
(Talk) Talking about me like they know

From 'Mother Russia'

we serve an old man in a dry season
a lighthouse keeper in the desert sun
dreamers of sleepers and white treason
we dream of rain and the history of the gun
