* The mall and shop musics in ''SpaceQuest IV'' sound like contemporary elevator/lobby muzak, and the Rocket Bar uses 60's rock-n-roll. In the remake of ''SpaceQuest I'', though, the bar music sounds more like 80's dance pop.

If a futuristic movie is made in the '70s or '80s, you can expect at least one scene to take place in a "futuristic disco" which features lots of heavily synthesized music and people in neon costumes writhing around. (The ''Buck Rogers'' TV series featured a lot of scenes like these, as did the movie ''Logan's Run'' and the ''[[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]]'' episode ''SpaceMutiny.'') It helps that a fair amount of the actual synthesized pop music from those decades (Kraftwerk, etc.) still sounds stereotypically futuristic to modern ears. And CyberPunkIsTechno, naturally.

* Similar to the above example, the [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]] fodder ''SpaceMutiny'' contains a random rave scene that is ''painfully'' [[TheEighties '80s]] (in a setting that is supposed to be ''much'' closer to ''Franchise/StarTrek''), for no other purpose than to [[MaleGaze focus on the posteriors]] of women in hi-cut leotards hula-hooping to generic synths.

Added namespaces.
* The popular Moon music in ''TheAdventuresOfPlutoNash'' seems to be either really jerky or techno/pop mixed with autotuning. The dancing is also very jerky. Everyone moves for a second then freezes for half-a-second, etc.

* In AnneMcCaffrey's ''Literature/TheShipWho Sang'', BobDylan is a popular classical musician of the future. Singing in his style is banned on some planets, because it's too persuasive. * In DavidWeber's ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' novels, the heroine spends time on the planet Grayson, whose "classical" music evolved from [[CountryMusic country and western]]. The end product is supposed to be fairly distinct though. * ''{{Remnants}}''. The terror-filled series K A Applegate wrote after Animorphs started off on a light note... with Opera being the new "pop" music.

* The 1970s series ''{{UFO}}'' incorrectly predicts that racism will have died out by 1980, cars will drive on the right hand side of the road in the UK, supersonic transport and Moon bases will be routine, and military pilots can wear a [[SpaceClothes blue catsuit and white vinyl boots]] without being laughed at. However it is correct in assuming that the Beatles song "Get Back" will still be popular.

* On ''NightGallery'', a character who's wandered into the future encounters some teenagers listening to music, which sounds like a random, tuneless assortment of notes being banged out on a synthesizer. Presumably the show's budget didn't cover a theremin for that one...

** The second game also featured "Callista", which was originally made for ''NeedforSpeed: High Stakes'' in 1999.

Added DiffLines:
** Concidering that cyberpunk usually heavily relies on 80s or early 90s state of technology, fashion, culture, and overall aesthetic, even if made after that period, this is actually somewhat justified.

* Series 2 of the science {{Mockumentary}} ''LookAroundYou'' (set in 1980, sort-of) included a spoof competition to find the best futuristic song. Basically, there were three songs. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRMFQxd7ye8 One]] "predicted" the sexiness and electro-ness of later pop music (that fits this trope to a T), [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aR8qtxts1jY another]] was a really poor song which "predicted" rap, and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cMik9jlZDaY the third]] was just someone playing a guitar and singing gobbledygook lyrics, which "predicted" early Nineties rock.

* In the reimagined ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'', colonial music is largely familiar to the viewer, with Classical, Celtic, Tribal, and Rock styles. According to the WordOfGod, the musical similarities are relevant to the show's mythos. [[ArcWords All this has happened before; all this will happen again.]] Apparently including musical fashions.

Not really future music
** Who could forget young Jim Kirk listening to "Sabotage" by Beastie Boys driving a classical corvette while Matt Parkman is shouting at him through the [[ProductPlacement Nokia]] dashboard communicator in ''Film/StarTrek''? Classical car - classical music. *** Could be seen as a ShoutOut to another Beastie Boys song, "Ch-check It Out", that references Star Trek. *** While the song ''did'' mention Franchise/StarTrek, it wasn't exactly complementary. "All you Trekkies and you TV addicts, don't mean to dis, don't mean to bring static, all you Klingons at your grandma's house, grab your Backstreet friends and get loud." *** However, the song "Intergalactic" does contain the lines "Your knees'll start shaking and your fingers pop Like a pinch on the neck of Mr. Spock".

* ''Videogame/{{Halo}}'' has a scene where Sergeant Johnson is listening to "old-style colonial 'flip' music", which is descended from metal. All of the younger Marines complain about it being old and outdated. ** WordofGod has stated that the song Johnson was listening to was originally intended to be "Paint It Black" by the RollingStones, but they could not obtain licensing. ** Later, the Halo 2 {{ARG}} ''ILoveBees'' placed a rather large note on the musical styles enjoyed by Jersey's father - with clues in both timelines. "Ancient music, jazz and swing, always in the mood..." ** ''HaloReach'' has an EasterEgg where you can hear "Never Surrender", the techno remix of the series' theme, in a club in New Alexandria, after activating a hidden switch. Also, 20th century country and jazz music is used in the elevators.
