* 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.

* Invoked by "fashwave", an appropriation of UsefulNotes/{{synthwave}} and {{vaporwave}} 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", unironically embracing the dystopian satire of [[TheEighties '80s]] culture that filmmakers like Creator/JohnCarpenter and Creator/PaulVerhoeven employed (and which many synthwave and vaporwave artists have taken after) and "embrac[ing] that decade's grim sci-fi forecasts as paradise."

* 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.

* ''After'' having invaded Poland from the East and having been invaded himself by the guys who had invaded Poland from the West, Stalin ordered a song for the Great Patriotic War to be written. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HK2lNuiD7gM Listen yourself.]] Like the Imperial March from Star Wars, this one is somewhat atypical in that it's in a minor key, though it uses major chords in the chorus.

* Invoked in ''WebVideo/HellsingUltimateAbridged'' as a prelude to the attack on London.
-->'''The Major''': ...ze accompaniment tonight has been selected by popular survey... ''and I hope you're as excited as I am!'' Ze song tonight is ze most appropriate for... ironic reasons. ''Ze best reasons!'' But first, a toast... to ze answer of an age-old question.
''(the attack starts to the tune of Edwin Starr's ''War'')''

* Swedish band {{Sabaton}} get this a lot. They make bombastic power metal, their vocalist rolls his Rs in a very particular way, and most of their songs are about WW I and II, quite a few of them from the perspective of German forces. Disregard that they have several songs from the perspective of the nations fighting ''against'' Nazi Germany as well as definite anti-war anthems, and that their eight minute epic about the Nazis' rise to power is called ''Rise of Evil''. One of their songs, "Counterstrike", is about the ''Israeli victory'' in the Six-Day War. They also have three two songs ("40:1", "Uprising", and "Inmate 4859") celebrating the Polish soldiers who fought off the Nazis, making their music a case of "Music To ''Defend'' Poland To". Particularly funny would be "Panzerkampf", which is often flagged on Website/YouTube as "inapproppriate", despite its lyrics in clear and unambiguous English describing the ''Soviet'' counterattack at Kursk, which finally broke the invasion.
