One particular trait is that they're likely to avert IAmVeryBritish, opting for a [[LondonTown cockney]] or [[OopNorth Northern accent]] (usually Liverpudlian or Mancunian, thanks to the existence of famous rock bands from those cities).

* Once on ''Series/QuantumLeap'' Sam leaped into a British Rock Star, whose band had taken up Music/{{KISS}}esque facial makeup as a gimmick. He has a stalker who claims to be his son from a tryst with his mother 16 years previous (which would make this band a popular British band in America [[TheBritishInvasion pre-Beatles]]).

** In ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCity Vice City]]'', you must escort Love Fist, a Scottish band that is very similar to [[Film/ThisIsSpinalTap Spinal Tap]] around.
** 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 Music/TheStoneRoses, Music/{{Suede}} and Music/HappyMondays). The lead singer's name is [[Music/TheBeatles Maccer]] (he even wears a Reni hat).
** ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoLibertyCityStories Liberty City Stories]]'' has Crow, an ahead-of-his-time, egotistical humanitarian crusader.
* ''VideoGame/DeadRising2'' has heavy rockers named Jeanna Slick, Floyd Stone, and Allen Ash who are members of the band Angel Lust. The trio mistook the zombie horde for fans. Well it's not that much of a stretch to be fair. They had such lines as "Oi mate get off the bloody stage" and "Zombies? Blimey!" They even destroy a crowd of zombies through the Power of Rock.
* Death Metal from ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes'' was one of these before he became the 10th ranked assassin in the UAA..

either. This was an enforced trope. Originally, she was going to be a black American woman, however ExecutiveMeddling didn't want a [[PositiveDiscrimination black villain]] (the show later had a black villain in one episode though). It was decided that she could be either white and British or white and Australian. The [[ComicBook/JemAndTheHolograms comic reboot]] [[RaceLift changed her]] to be a half-Japanese and half-black Brit.
