* There was an odd variation in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' ("Saddlesore Galactica") that used Cake's "The Distance". The rights weren't cleared in time for the original broadcast and a soundalike instrumental track was used instead, but later on they did get the rights, and repeats (as well as the DVD) use the actual song.

** When FUNimation restored Shunsuke Kikuichi's background music for the 5.1 track in their ''Dragon Ball Z'' season box sets, this did not include any vocal [=OSTs=] in the background soundtrack. Those simply played silent. Similarly, their dub of the original ''Dragon Ball'' (whose US soundtrack ''always'' featured Kikuichi's music) also couldn't feature the vocal songs, and the narrator was usually given more dialogue to fill up the silence.

* ''Series/WKRPInCincinnati'', because of the expiration of all the license agreements regarding music, also had a significant number of songs cut (keep in mind this is a television show about a radio station). The syndicated version also replaces a fair amount of its music.

** In 2014, ShoutFactory finally released the show on DVD in a complete series set. They cleared most of the music, and used special new technology to replace background songs they couldn't clear (the show's raw soundtrack tapes are long gone).
* Sadly this trope is the reason ''Series/{{Werewolf}}'' isn't on DVD at all. When ShoutFactory tried to release the show on DVD, they couldn't clear all the music. Instead of replacing it, they discovered the raw soundtrack tapes were gone, and could not replace the music. They were forced to let the rights revert back to Sony.

* Any time insert songs were used in ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'', about half of them were replaced for the show's DVD releases with generic music. These edits went into the reruns on {{Nickelodeon}}, The N/TeenNick, ABCFamily, and TheHub.

* The ''VideoGame/DragonBallZBudokai HD Collection'' (containing the original Budokai and Budokai 3) replaced all the music due to issues with the composer (see DragonBallKai above). This causes outrage among game enthusiasts and folks who grew up with the original games who didn't know why the music was replaced.

* Wrestling/RingOfHonor and Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} tapes tend to use generic themes in place of the ''The Final Countdown''(the theme of Wrestling/BryanDanielson and Wrestling/SaraDelRey) or heavily synthesized versions there of.(actually trying to change Danielson's theme outright caused a near riot)[[/folder]]

* The SegaGenesis version of ''VideoGame/MichaelJacksonsMoonwalker'' originally had "Thriller" as the dance special theme in the third stage (it was never a stage theme in any version of the game), but later replaced it with "Another Part of Me" (which is also the stage theme).

* ''Series/TheState,'' a sketch comedy show that took advantage of MTV's music licensing opportunities, had its music replaced on its DVD release. This is prevalent with MTV, which has licensing deals with record companies allowing them to use music freely as it counts as advertising, but doesn't have those rights carry over to video releases. (See ''{{Daria}}'' under Western Animation.)
