** In one episode of ''TNG'', a Ferengi has a bar entertainer play some Ferengi music (instead of the Klingon opera she was playing before), which turns out to be rather monotonous serialist twelve-tone music (whose mathematical structures are fitting for a culture of accoutants and merchants).

The performer's own taste runs to (unheard) "Andorian blues".

Future-themed movies (especially those made in the 50s) will often feature lots of creepy {{theremin}} music, à la BernardHerrmann's score from ''Film/TheDayTheEarthStoodStill1951''. The soundtrack may also feature lots of weird alien-y or spaceship-y noises, which are hard to describe accurately, but if you pop in a DVD of ''Film/ForbiddenPlanet'' you'll hear them going off in the background all the time.

* Amusingly subverted in ''Series/{{Firefly}}'''s "Shindig"; the music is classical (specifically, a [[LudwigVanBeethoven Beethoven]] string quartet), and the dance seemingly Victorian-esque... until you realise that it's slowed-down and fancied-up orchestral interpretations of a ''square dance''.

Anytime a character sings a song or turns on a radio (or the [[SubspaceAnsible futuristic movie equivalent]] of a radio) you can expect to hear music which sounds not unlike a top 40 hit dating from the decade the movie was made, with a few "futuristic-sounding" instruments (like synthesizers or the aforementioned {{theremin}}) thrown in. The [[TheJetsons Jetsons]] episode featuring Jet Screamer, a 60s-ish pop idol, singing "Epp Opp Ork Means I Love You" is a prime example of this. (Although [[WeirdAlEffect more people today may be familiar]] with the Violent Femmes' particularly faithful cover version of this song...)

* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** The First Doctor episode "The Chase" features a clip of the Beatles. 25th-century companion Vicki has heard of them, but is surprised to learn they played "classical music".
** In the revival's second episode, "The End of the World", Music/BritneySpears' "Toxic" is described as being "a traditional Earth ballad".

* ''[[Film/BillAndTed Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure]]''. Contemporary music ''creates utopia in the future.'' The movie makers wisely never actually give an example of whatever composition Bill and Ted create that brings about world peace.

* ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'' has an inversion (see also the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' entry below): a 22nd century starship has in its music library 80s\90s rap music filled with what the alien Jaylah describes as "beats and shouting". These include Music/PublicEnemy (Scotty describes as "too old-fashioned for my taste") and Music/BeastieBoys (which apparently is now "classical").
