* OkGo's Chevrolet-sponsored video for [[http://youtu.be/MejbOFk7H6c "Needing/Getting"]] involves the band playing the song with a car. The main way this is done is with retractable pneumatic arms on the vehicle, which strike carefully arranged and "tuned" objects as the band drive by them. There ''are'' some very unconventionally-used pianos and guitars involved, but mostly these are things like barrels, steel poles, and tires.

* Music/{{Sophie}}'s [[SignatureStyle production style]] is a strange DoubleSubversion, and also bleeds over into AnythingCanBeMusic. While most of the sounds she produces are synthetic and are based on simple waveform synths, she often crafts them from scratch into weird sound effects that make the basis of her songs. Such examples include the bloopy "bubble" sounds and water drops that make up most of "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdLvp630plc Lemonade]]", or the metallic whips, plastic-y smacks and rubbery squeaks used throughout "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8fwWZD159k Hard]]".
