* When the ITV network introduced all-night weekend TV in the middle 1980's, a cheap infill series broadcast around midnight on a Saturday was called ''The Hit-Man and Her''. This was presented by the Creator/SimonCowell of the day, pop impresario [[Music/StockAitkenWaterman Pete Waterman]], assisted by a very young and toothy Michaela Strachan. It was recorded in nightclubs around the UK, consisted of three hours worth of chart dance tunes interspersed with daft games and interviews, and sure enough nobody ugly ended up on film, nobody got drunk, nobody had the crap beaten out of them by neanderthal [[Bouncer bouncers]], et c. this idealised nightclub, it was later revealed, was usually filmed during the ''day'' with an invited and pre-selected audience consisting of models, aspirant actors and fame wannabees.

* Parodied in TheLonelyIsland's Jack Sparrow. It starts with everyone in a club, singing about how awesome and cool they are. Then Music/MichaelBolton [[OffTheRails derails]] the song by singing about ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean''.

* ''ToddInTheShadows'' ends up reviewing a lot of songs about this. It's safe to say he's getting a little tired of them.

The best way to show that your group is "down with the kids" and "funky" - or [[TotallyRadical whatever it is the under-25s say these days]] - is to stick them in a [[CoolestClubEver hopelessly contrived looking nightclub]] set full of impossibly attractive young women and maybe a few men and have them break it down on the dance floor, generally being the life of the party.

* SystemOfADown's "B.Y.O.B." has the band playing in a club but that club is invaded by soldiers wearing helmets with displays on the front apparently in some sort of sting operation and force all the club goers and the band to wear such helmets.

* Beautifully deconstructed in ''TheOffice'' (UK version), with an episode that ended at a works outing at one of these places... which was depicted as rather unpleasant and sleazy, and no fun at all unless you happened to be completely drunk.
