** The film ''Film/{{Eraserhead}}'' loves using it, and to great effect; an especially unnerving drone is played at the end, matching the equally terryfing imagery.

* Several pieces in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'', eg the first and last parts of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EbbVBNOtRzk "Sacred Icon Suite"]], use choral drones. The first game has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CcqYoGP44io "Suite Autumn"]](even creepier [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxnV0u1RkCU in the remake]]), the bass drone in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cr3ViZXl5Ws The Gun Pointed at the Head of the Universe]], the middle of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VQPFpIjz18 "Truth & Reconciliation Suite"]], which also uses PsychoStrings, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDUnp0I5YJU "Lament for Pvt. Jenkins"]], and parts of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxCWvaQjpg0 "Library Suite"]] (remastered as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSwHXY3_Vwc "Dewey Decimate"]] in ''Anniversary''). Also, the first half of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s07rRQqmpJc "Nightfall"]] in ''VideoGame/HaloReach''. Other reworked ambient tracks in ''Halo: CE Anniversary'' that turn the creepiness factor UpToEleven include [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dtl5IvMZ6NM Unfortunate Discovery]] (originally What Once Was Lost) and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXgkXWdypAc Bad Dream]] (originally Trace Amounts).

* OGRE & Dallas Cambpell prominently utilize Drone of Dread to horrific effect on their ''All Hallows'' and ''[[https://telefuturenow.bandcamp.com/album/beyond-the-infinite Beyond the Infinite]]'' albums, notably in "Tomorrow's Headline", "Lockstep", "Of Terror", and "Carve" on the former, and "Monolith I", "A Great Big Mystery", "Monolith II", "Open the Doors", "Daisy", and "Jupiter" on the latter.

** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOmOzWdHzHU Fire Temple]] (v 1.0) music from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' combines this with [[OminousLatinChanting Ominous Arabic Chanting]], somewhat reminiscent of the aforementioned "Requiem" from ''[[TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey 2001: A Space Odyssey]]''.

* ''Film/{{Citizenfour}}'' has an eerie, static-y noise that appears whenever the US government is doing something sneaky like surrounding Edward Snowden's house (and his unsuspecting girlfriend) with "maintenance vans" shortly after Snowden's leaks hit the news or detaining one of the reporters' partners for nine hours at an airport under "national security".



* ''Series/LawAndOrder'' makes extensive use of this (at a low pitch) when the (usually disturbing) key relevation comes out, either on the witness stand or (better yet) in chambers or an interview room.

* ''[[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Pokémon Yellow]]'''s version of [[TheMissingno Missingno]] causes the battle music to become dead static. Not quite a drone, but close and creepy as hell.
** As for deliberate musical uses, the Distortion World theme in ''Platinum'' features a lot of drone.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPzp05Q4Vf8 "Modern Ruin Part 2"]], the HiddenTrack on {{Covenant}}'s ''Modern Ruin'' album (only on the CD, not the digital release), is reminiscent of the forementioned ''{{Quake}}'' soundtrack, as well as the otherworld hospital ambience in ''Franchise/SilentHill''. Likewise for the ambient piece "Cryotank Expansion" from their first album. The opening track of ''Skyshaper'', "Ritual Noise", starts with a siren-like drone.

Not to be confused with the similarly named part of a [[EverythingsLouderWithBagpipes bagpipe]] (which however ''does'' produce a droning sound), an AttackDrone, the sound made by a [[UsefulNotes/SuperiorFirepowerBombers heavy bomber aircraft]], or a male honey bee (even though the musical element, the instrument part and the robot are all named after the animal, [[RecursiveReality which in turn is named after the onomatopoeia for the sound it makes]]). Note that old-fashioned bagpipes and the like do rely heavily on the more contemplative drone in place of a bass section.
