** 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.

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 [[ImpossiblyTackyClothes horrible fashion sense]], who [[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.

* Very early example - the Creator/AmericanInternationalPictures movie ''Bikini Beach'' (1964) had Frankie Avalon playing pop star Potato Bug (a ShallowParody of a [[UsefulNotes/TheBritishInvasion British Invasion]] pop star) in very cringe-worthy IAmVeryBritish mode (apparently all Britons acted like Creator/TerryThomas at the time.)

* Stillwater in ''Film/AlmostFamous'' is this trope applied to an American band (given its main inspiration was Music/LedZeppelin...).
