* The grindcore band Discordance Axis are a bunch of sci-fi and anime nerds who have written songs based on Creator/PhilipKDick novels, ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', and ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. Many of the songs on their last album ''The Inalienable Dreamless'' reference ''Evangelion'' in particular, with the song "Pattern Blue" directly mentioning AT fields. Vocalist Jon Chang also has another band called Gridlink where he continues this trend, including straight up having a song called "Asuka" about the eponymous character in the show.

* Music/KingCrimson's "The Court of the Crimson King"

to:

* Music/KingCrimson's early albums often incorporated lots of abstract, fantasy based imagery that often bordered on WordSaladLyrics. "The Court of the Crimson King"King" is the most famous example, along with "Moonchild", about a MysteriousWaif, and "Lizard", about a medieval battle. Their later albums dialed this back a fair bit due to no longer featuring Peter Sinfield as the band's lyricist.

** Most recently, 'All Nightmare Long' on their 2008 album Death Magnetic, which is about the 'Hounds of Tindalos'.
--> James Hetfield: It was an attempt to get back to the H.P. Lovecraft mythos with Thing that Should Not Be, Call of Ktulu.[sic] This was about the Hounds of Tindalos, which was another crazy mindfuck about these wolves that hunt through their nightmares and the only way you can get away from them is stay with angels. You can't even escape through sleep.

Added DiffLines:

** The booklet that comes with the CD from their second album even goes a step further, with spread sheets of their classes and character stats, as if they where straight out of some Fantasy RPG.
