* Long-running American experimental group Music/ControlledBleeding ran the gamut of punk, {{prog rock}}, {{harsh noise}}, dark ambient, dub, {{industrial}}, modern classical music, folk, free jazz, and pretty much everything in between. Generally they had the decency to limit themselves to a few genres per album, but the results can still be incredibly jarring, particularly on early albums like ''Knees & Bones'' where the music will suddenly shift from shrieking power electronics to trippy yet soothing guitar instrumentals to strange pieces halfway between the two at the drop of a hat.

* Ulver IS this trope - They began as a mix of atmospheric black metal and folk metal and then went dark folk and then a harsher, more lo-fi black metal. On their 4th album they became practically industrial metal and on their 5th they became a mix of trip hop, ambient and breakcore. They now have gone towards a general experimental rock style.

* Music/{{Drake}} does a mild version of this in his albums. He usually has typical BoastfulRap songs, but occasionally does pop/R&B ballad-type songs, such as "I Get Lonely Too" and "Find Your Love". In fact, one of the things he is praised (or criticized) for is his ability to switch from boastful raps to self-examining ballads.

On ''Views'', he has started having more of a dancehall reggae influence on his songs, most obviously "One Dance" and "Controlla" (which even features dancehall artist Popcaan).

* Japanese band ''Music/PuffyAmiYumi'' has this as their signature style. They have flirted with many genres, from PopPunk, Shibuya Kei, ElectroPop, AlternativeRock, Soft Rock, {{Disco}}, Teen Pop, to Pop Rock, CountryMusic, Rumba, Bossa Nova and even DoomMetal. They have collaborated with a wide range of songwriters, and their constant jumping from genre to genre is part of their appeal.

* The second half of Music/{{Outkast}}'s ''Music/SpeakerboxxTheLoveBelow'' is Andre 3000 playing around with this trope. One cut from this project, the 60's-esque "Hey Ya", became a BlackSheepHit for the group.

* The Music/DonnaSummer song "''Queen For a Day'"" from 1977's ''Once Upon a Time'' starts out as proto-electronica, then halfway through the song, abruptly switches to all-acoustic disco. Milder forms of this would become a recurring theme in composer Music/GiorgioMoroder's later recordings.
