* Music/{{Negativland}}'s song "Christianity Is Stupid" takes the piss out of [[Film/IfFootmenTireYouWhatWillHorsesDo a terrible Christian propaganda film]] by {{Sampling}} a sermon that describes loudspeakers constantly blaring "Christianity is stupid! Communism is good! Give up!", repeating them obsessively and completely out of context over a musical backing of insistently pounding drum machines and ominous HeavyMetal guitars.

Conceived and produced by the late Richard Lyons after he found an album by Pirkle in a thrift shop, it was later used to create [[https://thedailywrazz.wordpress.com/2009/12/21/we-dont-have-enough-data-negativlands-helter-stupid-20-years-later/ one of the group's more massive scandals]].

* Chinese propaganda towers in ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerGenerals''. They ''heal'' friendly units who hear them. You can even install them on the Overlord tanks and Helix choppers to turn them into pseudo-Medics.

* ''Film/{{Dredd}}''. Likewise in the crime-plagued dystopia of Mega City One, a recorded voice cheerfully announces that the food court will be ready in half an hour, as a robot cleans up the blood and dead bodies.

** At one point, Sisko, O'Brien and Jake were busy in one of the old ore-processing centers when they accidentally triggered a leftover Cardassian program designed to put down a Bajoran workers' insurrection; Dukat repeatedly popped up in pre-recorded videos telling the "workers" to quit before they get killed and such. It eventually sends out a pre-recorded distress signal.... which Dukat himself picks up.

* Though not really propagandistic, the civilians aboard the ''Macross'' in ''Film/MacrossDoYouRememberLove'' are on the receiving end of a couple throughout the film, usually warning that the ship is under attack/about to transform and that it would be a ''very'' good idea to seek shelter or shelter in place.
** A later sequence shows Admiral Global taking over the ship's civilian broadcasting network to announce the brokering of a peace treaty between the ''Macross'' and Vrlitwhai's[[note]]Britai/[[{{Robotech}} Breetai]]'s[[/note]] fleet.

* While ''Series/{{Community}}'s'' loudspeaker announcements are usually basically the kind of announcements you'd get in a community college with as much craziness as Greendale, when a social rating app leads to Greendale becoming a dystopia straight out of 70s science fiction so does the loudspeaker announcements.

* In ''VideoGame/SplinterCell: Chaos Theory'', during the mission in Seoul, North Korean troops have set up a series of loudspeakers that are blaring poorly-translated propaganda. Sam can shoot up the loudspeakers as a bonus objective, and will eventually find the broadcasting station by a command vehicle on the way to his objective primary objective, allowing him to permanently deal with ''that'' annoyance.
* Baby Panau's broadcasting vans, in ''[[VideoGame/JustCause Just Cause 2]]''. Absent from the rest of the game however; not even the bases have a PA system, just alarms.
