* 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 Music/TheBeatles and Music/TheRollingStones, 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.

* Many movies set in the very early 90's will include ''Fight The Power'' by PublicEnemy. ''Film/DoTheRightThing'' (1989), ''Film/BuffaloSoldiers'', ''Film/{{Jarhead}}'' and ''Film/ThreeKings'' all used it.

* Nearly everyone in ''Series/{{Life On Mars|2006}}'' listens to The Who, Led Zeppelin, Cream and Lou Reed. Never Chicory Tip, The Osmonds, Lieutenant Pigeon or Gilbert O'Sullivan. For those who don't understand, the latter bands all had #1 hits in the '70s... but don't get airplay today outside of syndicated reruns of ''AmericanTop40''.

* ''Everybody Wants Some!!'' is meant to be a SpiritualSuccessor to ''Dazed And Confused'' but set in the early eighties, so fittingly it has a similar mix of iconic eighties hits and less-remembered songs from the era. At one point, the character Willoughby dismisses Music/VanHalen, who were very popular at the time, then puts on "Fearless" by Music/PinkFloyd, a song that was never a single and was released in 1971. This turns out to be {{foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler: Willoughby later gets kicked out of school because he faked his transcripts and is secretly a decade older than the rest of the main characters; the song was probably new the ''first'' time he went to college.]]

* A somewhat odd example happens in ''Film/TheWackness'' and ''Hardball'' (that Keanu Reeves baseball flick) Where The NotoriousBIG is constantly played. Averted in both as the main character in ''Film/TheWackness'' constantly carries a walkman with him. And in Reeves in ''Hardball'' requests it at a bar.

** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': The song selection leaves no doubt that the story is set in TheEighties. Music/{{Metallica}}'s "Four Horsemen" plays when Archangel is "born," and the Music/{{Eurythmics}}' most famous song, "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)," is heard during Quicksilver's rescue of Xavier's students. Both were released in 1983. An Egyptian cover of Music/AFlockOfSeagulls' "I Ran (So Far Away)," a smash hit in 1982, is blaring from a boombox at the Cairo market.

Music/MenWithoutHats' "The Safety Dance," another classic from that year, accompanies the deleted mall scene.

* All your favorite tunes from the '70s in ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast''. The first thing Wolverine hears in 1973 is Roberta Flack's "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face"; Quicksilver listens to Music/AliceCooper's "Hello Hooray" and Music/JimCroce's "Time in a Bottle"; the disco in Paris is playing Claude Francois's French '70s hit "Stop au nom de l'amour."
