Ironically, PunkRock itself, despite the obvious assumption, seems to be absent in many cyberpunk offerings. It may be due to it's dated style in many ways. Many feel that punk rock was at its peak in TheSeventies and stopped being relevant after the [[TheEighties mid 80s]], which is about when cyberpunk actually took off.

If the future consists of [[EverythingIsOnline massive computer networks]], [[MegaCorp corrupt corporations]] / [[CorruptPolitician governments]] and [[{{Cyborg}} augmented humans]], and is [[UsedFuture dirty and grim]] (i.e. CyberPunk), you can bet that the music of choice will be {{Techno}}, Electronica, and/or {{Industrial}} music. All three are forms of ElectronicMusic. {{Ambient}} music of choice? Techno. Hanging out at the CoolestClubEver? No HipHop, PunkRock, or any other dance music here, just techno.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* '90s-era ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' comics frequently had posters up on the walls for Music/NineInchNails, [[Music/RobZombie White Zombie]] and other industrial-metal acts. The tendency of the [[{{Dystopia}} dystopian future setting]] to use this kind of music was lampshaded during the ''Doomsday For Megacity 1'' arc across ''2000AD'' and the Judge Dredd Megazine: Anderson meets a contact at a nightclub and comments that the music is giving her a headache and she can't understand why its so popular.

* Played with in the Tech Noir nightclub in ''Film/TheTerminator'': the music is initially normal 80s pop, until the electric/metallic {{Leitmotif}} of the Terminator kicks in.
* ''The Gene Generation'' soundtrack. Mostly the music is EBM/Industrial (several songs from EBM/Industrial/Electro act Combichrist are used), and even the non-Industrial music is written by Ronan Harris from VNV Nation (a popular Futurepop act). Add the fact that the director and all the characters constantly dress as futuristic goths and you have a film that basically is one giant advertisement for the entire catalogue of Metropolis Records.

* ''VideoGame/BionicCommando Rearmed'' uses techno remixes of the original NES soundtrack. By contrast, the soundtrack to the 2009 sequel is mostly [[OrchestralVersion orchestra]], although there are still a few electronica pieces.
