** 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.

-->'''[=McCoy=]''': Is that... classical?\\
'''Spock''': I believe it is.

* 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.

** Despite predating rock 'n' roll, the 1949 musical version uses an unformed version of the trope, having the protagonist (played by BingCrosby) teaching KingArthur's minstrels to perform big band music.

* Now for a non-time-traveling example. [[Creator/BongoComics Radioactive Man]] (yes, [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Bart Simpson's]] [[{{Defictionalization}} favorite superhero]]) is a nuclear-powered heroic being who gained his super powers in 1952 and [[DiscoDan hasn't altered his technological or cultural sensibilities since]]. On his last adventure before [[EarnYourHappyEnding being reunited with his long-lost parents]], in 1996, RM ventures out into the city on a dark and stormy night to confront the neocommunist villain Dr. Crab, who plans to use a device called an airwave silencer to censor all the city's radio and TV networks for disseminating "capitalist propaganda." After winning a fight with another villain in an alley, RM is starting to round a street corner when he hears [[HellIsThatNoise an ominous "DOOM, DOOM, DOOM!"]] approaching the intersection. RM is frightened by the sound, and wonders if Dr. Crab "has some weird, fiendish new weapon." But just as he is preparing for a possible fight to the death, the sinister sound is revealed as nothing more than a ghetto blaster pumping out hip-hop beats as it is carried by a Music/VanillaIce-like teenager. (RM gives him a stern lecture about staying out past curfew.)

* In ''Film/TheSmurfs'', Patrick Winslow introduces the time-traveling Smurfs to a little something called GuitarHero. They even bring the music style back to their own time and Brainy forms his own band called the Brainiacs.

** In "Recap/DoctorWhoS35E1TheMagiciansApprentice," the Doctor makes his entrance into a Medieval arena wearing CoolShades, playing and electric guitar, and riding [[TankGoodness a tank]]. As the title suggests, the locals justifiably [[ClarkesThirdLaw believe him to be a magician]].

* The 1944 comedy ''Time Flies'', whose characters travel from then-present New York to late Elizabethan England, features several non-rock examples. All of the pieces are ostensibly SourceMusic, but clearly involve instruments that aren't actually in the scenes.
