* [[VirtualIdol Sharon Apple]]'s trippy, [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly genre busting]] songs from ''Anime/MacrossPlus'', a notable early work by ''Creator/YokoKanno'' made to sound weird and future-y, which has aged considerably well.

** The first game 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 All of the younger Marines complain about it being old and outdated.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 Music/RollingStones, but they could not obtain licensing.

** Later, the ''Halo 2'' {{ARG}} ''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..."

* ''The Game Of Life'' had a ([[SugarWiki/NoProblemWithLicensedGames surprisingly decent]]) video game adaptation on the original PlayStation. It had "2000s" music which was generic 90s techno.

* In Creator/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.

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 ''ForbiddenPlanet'' you'll hear them going off in the background all the time.

* 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.
