* In ''Series/{{Daredevil}}'', a Dogs of Hell gang member is shown power-washing a semi truck the gang just hijacked while listening to "The Price of Punishment" on his headphones. This renders him oblivious to the Punisher entering and killing everyone else in the room until one of the bodies lands at his feet. To boot, Castle then proceeds to kill him, then use the guy's body as bait for the ESU team while he tries to make another attempt on Grotto.

* In ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan'', Creator/StanLee makes his requisite [[TheCameo cameo appearance]] as a school librarian listening to classical music on his headphones, oblivious to [[spoiler: the Lizard-v-Spider-Man fight destroying the library right behind him.
