* ''BrutalLegend'' is practically built around this {{trope}}. Though, with a twist: [[spoiler:Heavy Metal actually came *before* the time Eddie travels to, but was lost to the ages. Eddie actually comes from the future, where it has been re-discovered, and brings Metal back.]]

* {{Averted}} in "Journey Through Time", a particularly trippy episode of {{Jem}}. The Holograms are unknowingly sent back in time by Eric's goon, Techrat. They visit Mozart's period and Woodstock without even getting a song in, but they do a swing song in 1941 London.

* ''Fanfic/MyMetal'', a ''MyImmortal'' HeavyMetal {{Parody}} by Creator/MonicaGilbeyBieber has Rainblood introduce Tom Riddle to heavy metal music by playing [[{{Music/Metallica}} Fade to Black]] for him on a guitar that can operate only on magic. The consequences of this action are then heavily deconstructed in the next chapters.

** ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'' also uses this after Jaylah uses "Sabotage" by the Music/BeastieBoys to [[spoiler:disrupt the signal coordinating Krall's swarm ships]].
-->'''[=McCoy=]''': Is that... classical?\\
'''Spock''': I believe it is.

Added DiffLines:

* Aliens visiting the Earth rather than time travel, but Secret Scout David introduces the WesternAnimation/{{Dinosaucers}} to rock music; they find the sounds incredibly painful and can't imagine why humans would like it. Eventually, during a concert where David and his band members had been performing in costumes of the Dinosaucers, the Tyrannos end up kidnapping them from off stage, forcing the real deal to briefly stand in for the band, and they're unable to do so with any semblence of ability.

** It's weird to think that a movie in the 1990s about people from the 2370s in the 2060s who hear a song from the 1960s caused that song to be a belated hit in the 1990s.

* Non-time-travel example: at one point in the miniseries ''[[TheTenthKingdom The 10th Kingdom]]'', Virginia, trapped in a rural part of a a fairy-tale world, must compete in a singing contest wherein all songs must relate to sheep and shepherding. She chooses "We Will Shear You", in the style of Queen's "We Will Rock You".

** Used again in [[Literature/ElevenTwentyTwoSixtyThree 11/22/63]], where the protagonist accidentally outs himself as a time-traveler when he sings [[TheRollingStones Honky Tonk Woman]] while on a roadtrip with his 60's girlfriend, who's understandably shocked by the lyrics.
