* One of the more famous examples, the stoner metal band {{Kyuss}} was originally called the Sons of Kyuss. Sons of Kyuss are an undead monster from the original AD&D Fiend Folio, with Kyuss being their horrific worm-god. (And yes, the band got the name from the monster, not the other way around.)

* Inverted in the ''[[Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick Order of the Stick]]'' prequel, ''On the Origin of [=PCs=].'' Roy found a pack of villagers who begged him to save them from some bad-tempered orcs that were hanging around and wouldn't leave. Turned out the orcs were teenagers, who were camping there to await an upcoming rock concert... in a Mithril setting.

* Music/{{GloryHammer}}'s first album ''Tales from the Kingdom of Fife'' is a parody of this sort of music. It starts with Evil Sorcerer Zargothrax invading Scotland with an army of undead unicorns. The second album ''Space 1992: Rise of the Chaos Wizards'' is set in the grim darkness of an alternate version of 1992, and parodies space settings such as TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}.

** ''The Rhyme of the Nibelung'' by Baddd Spellah featuring MC Frontalot, might be an edge case, but it's about someone going to see ''Theatre/TheRingOfTheNibelung'', and mentions a lot about the plot
