The FrameStory involves a customer listening to the title sketch in a listening booth at a very strange record store ("She came over all dead so we gave her the afternoon off"). The record sticks, there's another bit involving the customer, then the sketch resumes. Later the record sticks again, the customer complains and then the FrameStory also sticks. There's a very loud RecordNeedleScratch and the next sketch begins.
** ''Monty Python's Previous Record'' starts off with Terry Jones shouting "Not this record! Not this record!" followed by

Usually happens when a tender scene gets derailed by harsh dialogue, but can also be an unsubtle LampshadeHanging cue accompanying weird moments in the animation or plot - like in Episode 3 when Sailor Moon's tiara [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands suddenly becomes able to bind a monster]] (something it never did before or after).
* This happens in ''WebVideo/AvatarTheAbridgedSeries'', when Chong starts playing the song "Secret Tunnel" about half a season ahead of schedule. He gives the excuse that he's "baked like an apple pie right now, man."
* A favourite trope of ''WebVideo/RanmaOneHalfAbridged''[='s=] editor it seems, as this occurs far more often than properly faded-out music. Used in tandem with a character's [[{{Leitmotif}} personal theme music]] for maximum effect.

* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' loves this trope, using it in [[http://www.hrwiki.org/wiki/Sound_Effects at least ten cartoons so far]]. They use a distinctly different sound effect for it than most works.
* ''WebAnimation/SilverQuill'': At the start of "After the Fact: Keep Calm and Flutter On", the club house music screeches to a halt when Silver Quill in full [[Film/DollarsTrilogy Man with No Name]] get-up shows up, replaced by the appropriate leitmotif. Then it screeches again as the initial music resumes, and we're shown it is Vinyl Scratch (appropriately) who's doing that. It happens a third time when Silver Quill says he's looking for a reviewer for a Discord episode, and DJ Pon-3 gives him a glare.
