** Sweetie Belle tries to conduct Scootaloo and Apple Bloom in "On Your Marks" and grows annoyed that neither of them can carry a tune. In what could be seen as an animated take on GameplayAndStorySegregation, about a minute later Apple Bloom is given a solo song and pulls it off perfectly.

** Bowie played a bad singer again in [[Film/MerryChristmasMrLawrence]], in which he sings noticeable off-key with the other prisoners when the group sing hymns. He even lampshades this in-character later in the film.

* Averted in ''Series/{{Dexter}}'': When he's singing his girlfriend's children to sleep, Dexter's voice isn't horrible, just a little off-key. In real life, Michael C. Hall's a trained singer with a very good voice. Jennifer Carpenter, on the other hand...

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' justified it in "No Rest For The Wicked". JensenAckles is known to be a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuACuW519Zo very good singer]] yet when Bon Jovi's "Wanted Dead Or Alive" comes on the radio, Dean (and later Sam) sings it obnoxiously loudly and badly. Why? Because it's his last day alive and he wants to cheer Sam up like the awesome big brother he is, that's why.

* WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow has Stimpy portrayed as this in the Games Animations-era episode "Hermit Ren", where he butchers Kumbaya, despite having previously appeared on the "You Eediot" music CD where he sings quite well.

* Creator/DavidSpade and Creator/ChrisFarley have a scene in ''Film/TommyBoy'' that ends with them singing along to "Superstar" by TheCarpenters at the top of their lungs. They're realistically bad (i.e., not great, but not terrible either).

* Played straight in the film ''Film/FlorenceFosterJenkins'', a {{biopic}} of the famously GiftedlyBad opera singer mentioned above. Creator/MerylStreep (who is of course a trained and experienced singer, as seen in [[Film/MammaMia some of her other film roles]]) does a spectacularly bad job at screeching and warbling entirely out of key and tempo, reducing several characters to [[{{Corpsing}} helpless giggles]]. However, the trope is {{averted}} a bit as far as the "Hollywood" aspect goes-- although it sounds completely over the top, the real Florence [[RealityIsUnrealistic really did sing that badly]], and Streep is doing a dead-ringer imitation of her recordings.
