* Averted with the dozens of various artists/greatest hits compilations issued by record labels such as Time-Life Music, Rhino Records and so forth. While the iconic hits will certainly be included (aside from TheBeatles and RollingStones, whose music is so expensive to license), these compilations are more likely to be genuine representations of what were the most popular songs of the era, including the one-hit wonders, novelty songs, country (if said compilation is pop-oriented and the song was also massively popular with pop audiences) and teen pop.

* ''Series/ColdCase'''s [[FlashBack flashbacks]] use only well-remembered hits to help define the feeling of the historical period. With period settings, this can skew toward the anachronistic, since they once used Glenn Miller's "String of Pearls", which Glenn Miller did not even compose until 1941, in an episode centered around the 1938 broadcast of ''The War of the Worlds''

** In fact, it's so rare that when ''MadMen'' used "Tomorrow Never Knows" at the end of an episode, [[http://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/05/07/how-mad-men-landed-the-beatles-all-you-need-is-love-and-250000/ it made the New York Times]].

* Creator/OliverStone's ''Film/BornOnTheFourthOfJuly'' opens in the suburban community of Massapequa, New York, in the year 1956. The characters are attending a Fourth of July parade, and from one of the floats Bill Haley and the Comets' "Rock Around The Clock" can be clearly heard (and there's also a shot of [[GreaserDelinquents some greaser guys and girls]] sulking at the edge of the crowd, glaring at everyone). [[TheNewRockAndRoll Surprisingly]], no one among the families (with many children) lining the street seems to find this at all offensive (which is especially striking because [[ZigZaggingTrope Stone later goes out of his way to show that these working-class suburbanites are extremely socially repressed]]).

* Averted in ''Film/WhenHarryMetSally'', which is set between 1977 and 1989. Instead of contemporary music, the movie uses much older classics by the likes of Sinatra and Bing Crosby.

* Many movies set in the very early 90's will include ''Fight The Power'' by PublicEnemy. ''Film/DoTheRightThing'', ''Film/BuffaloSoldiers'', ''Film/{{Jarhead}}'' and ''Film/ThreeKings'' all used it.
