In 1968 their label re-released the song "Time of the Season" in the U.S. which became a huge hit. There was an attempt to revive the band, but after a few recording sessions the band [[IncrediblyLamePun stayed buried]].

* IDW Comics had a {{Crisis|Crossover}} CrossThrough miniseries called "[[http://trekmovie.com/2010/10/08/idw-infestation-series-to-mix-zombies-with-star-trek-other-licensees Infestation]]", crossing ''Comicbook/ZombiesVsRobots'' over with ''Franchise/StarTrek'', ''[[ComicBook/TheTransformersIDW The Transformers]]'', ''Franchise/GIJoe'', ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'', and ''ComicBook/PocketGod'' (but not said five licensed properties with each other), with canonical consequences for everyone involved. ''Trek'' and ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' fan reactions has been... about as bad as expected.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'': The episode "Strange New World" deals with this, where Doctor Strange releases a serum that effectively turns the citizens of Gotham into zombies. It being a kid's show, Batman has 42 hours to administer an antidote before the effects become permanent. [[spoiler: Subverted at the end of the episode, when it's revealed that no one was really zombified, it was just a hallucination caused by Strange.]]

* In Austin, TX, pranksters broke the locks on highway construction signs and altered them to read: [[ZombieApocalypse THE END IS NEAR]]! ZOMBIES AHEAD! RUN! [[WorldWarZ RUN TO COLD CLIMATES]]! [[Film/DeadSnow NAZI ZOMBIES]]! Unfortunately, this happened once during a hurricane evacuation. Nobody panicked, thankfully, but it could have been a lot worse with the evacuees who were already under stress from the possibility of having lost most of their Earthly possessions.

** ''VideoGame/{{Metroid Prime}} 2: Echoes'' starts out with Samus entering a Galactic Federation base, only to find that all of the soldiers she had been tasked with rescuing have been brutally murdered. As she investigates further, all of the corpses suddenly come back to life as undead "Dark Troopers" and start attacking her (they're kind of rubbish, though). They continue to shamble about the base even after she leaves, but they never have a significant appearance later on in the game's plot.

* When the makers of TheLordOfTheRingsOnline had to bring the barrow-wights to life, they went the traditional "rotting animate corpses" route. Wights aren't much described in Tolkien's works, but they do have a physical form (Frodo cuts off one of their hands) so going with a medieval zombie look isn't such a stretch.
* ''{{Postal}} 2'' features its own [[OurZombiesAreDifferent mad-cow-tourettes]] zombies when an inevitable apocalypse hits Paradise, causing havoc alongside terrorist attacks, insane protesters, drunken rednecks, fanatic church workers, and cats raining from the sky. [[ButForMeItWasTuesday Just one of those days.]]

* The Inferi from ''Literature/HarryPotter'' are zombies in everything but name (with the Frankenstein monster's PopCulturalOsmosis fear of fire).[[note]]It should be noted that Romero zombies are also scared of fire, as seen in ''Night of the Living Dead'' when they use fire to keep the ghouls from entering the house.[[/note]]
