* Aldous Snow in ''ForgettingSarahMarshall'' and ''GetHimToTheGreek''. Snow is interesting in that he combines [[ExaggeratedTrope exaggeration]], [[SubvertedTrope subversion]], and SelfParody:

** In ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas San Andreas]]'' you meet up with two characters associated with a band who are largely parodies of this trope (though their style leans more towards pre-Britpop, like TheStoneRoses, Music/{{Suede}} and HappyMondays). The lead singer's name is [[Music/TheBeatles Maccer]] (he even wears a Reni hat).

* In ''RegularShow'', a future version of Mordecai and Rigby, who are famous rock stars, speak in vaguely Liverpudlian accents despite being American.

TheBritishInvasion helped cement British artists as big players in the international market. As such many bands or singers found in American media will turn out British. They're generally of the Metal or Rock genre with horrible fashion sense, [[SexDrugsAndRockAndRoll take lots of drugs, drink lots of booze]], have [[TheCasanova incredibly high sexual tallies]] (often [[AnythingThatMoves going for the weird stuff]], too), [[TrashTheSet trash hotel rooms]] and [[ApplianceDefenestration throw TVs out the window]], and are either indifferent or throwing themselves behind [[CharityMotivationSong whatever good cause]] [[ProtestSong might be available]]. Pierced nose and spiky mohawk optional.

* Jetta, the [[SixthRanger later addition]] to The Misfits on ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}''. She's apparently [[AmericansHateTingle popular in her home turf]] but is a part of one of the most popular bands in America. Jetta honestly doesn't like going back to Britain either.

* ''SaturdayNightLive'' sketch "Needs More Cowbell" has the British producer/rock star [[ChristopherWalken Bruce Dickinson]] (not to be confused with [[Music/IronMaiden the real]] Music/BruceDickinson, who is also British).

* In Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia, England invokes this trope in his character songs and versions of "Maru Kaite Chikyuu" and "Hatefutte Parade", all of which have distinctly rock feel to them.

* Axl Low, the time-travelling goofball of the ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' games is designed after this whole aesthetic (''Guilty Gear'' being an {{Animesque}} fighting game chock full of rock/metal references), although it's only in ''Xrd'' he really gets his British accent.
