* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* ''Fanfic/{{The Racket-Rotter Chronicles}}'' seems to change genre with every new Arc; It starts off as a SliceOfLife Romance with comedic overtones (Arc 1), then becomes more of a dramedy (Arc 2), then turns into {{Gorn}}/Horror (Arc 3), and is now currently a sort of horror/friendship hybrid (Arc 4).



* ''Marathon'' and its sequels are as much a novella as they are shooters and much of the player's time is spent reading in-game.

* Music/MichaelJackson is mostly known as a pop singer, but he liked to make songs from several different genres for every album. So he could make rock songs like "Beat it", "Dirty Diana", "Give in to me", "D.S." as well as gospel-flavored songs like "Man in the mirror", "Will you be there?" and "Keep the faith".

And he also did experiments like "Liberian Girl" (wich is done in a very "tropical" style) and "Money" (where he does his own rapping).
