** Laibach turned this on a classic Music/{{Queen}} song with their cover of "One Vision", titled [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZAD7W3M4zc "Geburt einer Nation"]]. The original song is generally held to have been either about [[UsefulNotes/CivilRightsMovement Martin Luther King, Jr.]] or inspired by Queen's Live Aid performance, while Laibach's version translates it into German and gives it a far more martial feel but keeps virtually all of the lyrics word-for-word. Suddenly, lines like "one flesh, one bone, one true religion" [[https://mookidmusic.com/2016/09/06/gebert-einer-nation-how-laibach-turned-queens-one-vision-into-a-totalitarian-anthem-without-changing-freddies-lyrics/ don't sound so uplifting.]]

* Invoked by "fashwave", a subgenre of UsefulNotes/{{synthwave}} and {{vaporwave}} made by avowed neo-fascists, many of whom turned to electronic music out of a rejection of the "African rhythms" of rock and its derivatives (like punk and metal). [[https://thump.vice.com/en_us/article/trumpwave-fashwave-far-right-appropriation-vaporwave-synthwave This article]] describes fashwave as "the neon-lit cityscapes of synthwave visuals... populated with red-eyed cyborg death squads", appropriating the dystopian satire of [[TheEighties '80s]] culture employed in films like ''Film/EscapeFromNewYork'' and ''Film/RoboCop1987'' (and which many synthwave and vaporwave artists have taken after) and unironically "embrac[ing] that decade's grim sci-fi forecasts as paradise."

* Invoked by "fashwave", a subgenre of UsefulNotes/{{synthwave}} and {{vaporwave}} made by avowed neo-fascists, many of whom turned to electronic music out of a rejection of the "African rhythms" of rock and its derivatives (like punk and metal). This contrasts with Synthwave, with artists like JohnCarpenter [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mjsic8hiQ5k utilizing the music to satirize 80s neoliberalism]] or Vaporwave's snark towards consumerism. [[https://thump.vice.com/en_us/article/trumpwave-fashwave-far-right-appropriation-vaporwave-synthwave This article]] describes fashwave as "the neon-lit cityscapes of synthwave visuals... populated with red-eyed cyborg death squads", appropriating the dystopian satire of [[TheEighties '80s]] culture employed in films like ''Film/EscapeFromNewYork'' and ''Film/RoboCop1987'' (and which many synthwave and vaporwave artists have taken after) and unironically "embrac[ing] that decade's grim sci-fi forecasts as paradise.""
** That said, given that fashwave, like most of synthwave and vaporwave, tends not to contain lyrics, it's practically impossible to tell simply by hearing if you're listening to a fashwave song. Most of what constitutes of fashwave literally relies on the title and thumbnail the musician [[BecauseISaidSo gave it.]]

* The "Breen National Anthem", {{Leitmotif}} of ''WesternAnimation/AeonFlux'''s primary antagonists, has a deliberate Wagnerian sound to it. Originally it was meant to represent a single character, a very Germanic-looking soldier in one of the original ''WesternAnimation/LiquidTelevision'' shorts (who died a minute into his first and only appearance), but the music was kept because it was felt that it suited the nation of Bregna's authoritarian character.
* In one WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy special, Alex Borstein objected to Seth [=McFarlane=] singing "Edelweiss" on account of her being Jewish. Nevermind that the song was written for the extremely anti-Nazi ''Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' Mr Burns has a taped version of 'Ride of the Valkyries' ready for when he was going to get Homer's mother arrested for [[spoiler: being among the protesters who destroyed his biological weapon lab]]. Unfortunately, [[SoundtrackDissonance the music immediately switched]] to 'Waterloo' by Music/{{ABBA}}.
---> '''Mr Smithers:''' I'm sorry, Sir. I must have taped over that.

* Particularly weirdly, ''Music/{{Madness}}'' of all groups have been accused of being (depending on the source) Nazis, members of the right-wing National Front or just fascists in general, in no small part because they ended up having quite a skinhead (as in National Front / BNP) following during the 1980s. This is in spite of the fact that they wrote a sad song about a woman being exiled for being pregnant with a mixed race baby, and later wrote a song which was a massive TakeThat against apartheid. The extreme-right-wing element probably latched onto them as they were the only major TwoTone group to have an all-white line-up.

* Alluded to in the [[Anime/Patlabor Patlabor: The New Files]] OVA. After having his cover blown by the [[SuperPrototype Griffon]]'s pilot revealing his voice, [[TheChessmaster Utsumi]] states that it was stupid to even install external speakers on the thing, [[TheDragon Kurosaki]] is quick to reply that it was his own idea, so he could play Wagner as it moved. Utsumi then complains that they haven't got to do that yet.
