* Given the nature of the SCPFoundation, a catalogue of all sorts of detained paranormal entities, it's bound to end up as this. The website started towards it being more orientated towards horror, which is the common way to describe the site, but SCP entries are very varied in tone to reflect that the weird isn't always traditionally scary. The variation of the site includes SCP entities that are:

Musical Genre Roulette is closely related to NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly. The difference is that a Genre Roulette album can have a country song followed by a punk song, while an NPZR album will have a song that's country ''and'' punk at the same time. (For the curious, that genre actually exists and is known as cowpunk.) Making matters more complicated is that it is possible to write a song that ''fuses'' country and punk (which is NPZR) and a song that ''suddenly shifts'' from country to punk mid-song (which is probably more an example of GenreRoulette). For this reason it's often difficult to define where one trope ends and the next begins, especially since some bands liberally use both techniques.

* All of ''Franchise/StarCraft'' is made of this, dependent on which races are shown interacting. When only Terrans are present, it's a heavily character-focused UsedFuture SpaceWestern.

* ''Music/{{Gorillaz}}'', with only three albums, have managed to present genres like Alternative, dub, hip hop, rock and electronic, and the last song (M1 A1) features sounds and clips from ''Film/DayOfTheDead''. ''Music/DemonDays'', the following album, followed a similar pattern, but with a darker and somber sound, along some dance/synth (DARE), some acoustic dark tunes (El Mañana), and even a choral (Demon Days), along with another horror film sample, from the film ''Film/DawnOfTheDead1978'' (Intro). The third album, Plastic Beach, can only be described as "crazy", what with mixing in one song the Lebanese National Orchestra for Oriental Arabic Music with hip hop, and all the album has all over sounds of soul, electro, rock, pop, and even [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking seagulls and sea sounds and a breakfast commercial]]. Of course, Damon Albarn it's clearly doing a good job, so it's not risky business.

* Music/TheBlackCrowes are most easily classified as a {{hard rock}} band, but their specific sub-genre shifts with each album. While their first two albums were pure hard rock, from there they did {{garage rock}} --> {{psychedelic rock}} --> {{soul}}-influenced rock --> {{blues rock}} --> {{southern rock}} --> [[FolkMusic folk]]/[[CountryMusic country]] rock. There's a reasons they're nicknamed "the most rock n roll rock n roll band in the world."
