* [[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.

* The final boss theme (appropriately named "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ftJWsVCikg Crocodile Cacophony]]") from ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry 2'' combines this with a techno beat.

* György Ligeti's compositions spanned a large array of different styles, but some of them featured really prominent drones, notably the pieces ''Requiem'' and ''Atmospheres'' (both heard in ''[[TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey 2001: A Space Odyssey]]''). The former combines drones with OminousLatinChanting, and the latter features the largest cluster chord ever written, with every note in the chromatic scale over a range of five octaves being played at once that's ''60'' different notes.

* Music/AphexTwin's ''Selected Ambient Works Volume II'' has a lot of songs that incorporate this trope to [[NightmareFuel unnerving]] effect, but "Stone in Focus" manages to have a drone that sounds '''''[[SugarWiki/SweetDreamsFuel nice]]'''''.
