* {{Rihanna}} uses this in a few songs, notably "Disturbia" and her T.I. collaboration "Live Your Life". Justified in these two; in "Disturbia" it is used to create distortion to aid the dark atmosphere and vibe of the song, and in "Live Your Life" it's used only on the chorus, and there's a slight surprise when it's not used on her verse.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPoNpJ29bvE This]] fan-made remix of "[[WesternAnimation/ToyStory You've Got A Friend In Me]]" auto-tunes RandyNewman's voice, which, considering Newman isn't much of a singer to begin with, works surprisingly well,

The act of distorting vocals for a robotic effect is not new in and of itself, having been used since the 1970s with the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vocoder vocoder]], but this was mostly relegated to funk and electronica, both niche markets. Using Auto-Tune for a similar effect didn't become prominent until the arrival of Music/TPain in 2005. Unlike other artists that relegated it to subtle uses or genres aiming for a digitalized sound, T-Pain used it obviously and flagrantly on nearly all of his releases. His huge success led to a [[FollowTheLeader slew of imitators]] within pop, R&B, and hip hop. Within a very short period, Auto-Tune distortion became the norm rather than the exception.

Auto-Tune was originally intended as a way to correct notes sung flat or sharp by less than a semi-tone, but it was discovered to create a robotic sound when driven much further and combined with abrupt pitch shifts. The first (successful) usage of this style was on the 1998 number one Music/{{Cher}} single "Believe", but because this method was kept as a trade secret at the time, it took a couple years for other artists such as Music/DaftPunk to discover it.

* A non-musical example in ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'': when the family's dog builds himself a bipedal robot suit capable of translating his thoughts flawless english, his lines are auto-tuned to make him sound more robotic.
