* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'': 3rd Edition has a bard spell called "Insidious Rhythm" that consists of a catchy, silly tune that stay stuck in the mind of the target. This imposes a penalty on all activities involving reflection and concentration, and can even make a spellcaster flub his incantations.

** One 2nd edition ''Forgotten Realms'' priest spell, known only to the clergy of Milil, would cause a similar effect by getting ''part'' of an Ear Worm stuck in a target's head, leaving them unable to concentrate as they struggle to either get it out of their head or come up with the missing next line.

* An In-Universe Example: In ''Fanfic/OriginStory'', Alex Harris is trying to concentrate during a strategy meeting with ComicBook/TheAvengers and she finds herself half-humming, half-singing a MajorGeneralSong (that started with the line , “I am the very model of a busty superheroine…” -- ItMakesSenseInContext) she'd seen on YouTube that just happened to have been about Alex herself. When the Black Widow asks her if something's wrong, Alex tries to explain, badly. She specifically calls it an EarWorm, and can't figure out whether she is more annoyed by the fact that she can't get it out of her head, or that the damned thing exists in the first place.
