* Music/ChildishGambino's "This is America" starts out sounding like a South African choir song, before suddenly switching to a heavy, booming trap beat.

* "Supernaut" by Music/BlackSabbath is a heavy boogie, but has a Caribbean flavored acoustic shuffle in the middle. "Symptom Of The Universe" does something similar, starting as a heavy metal tune before going into another acoustic shuffle at the end.
** The first four and a half minutes of "Symptom Of The Universe" are proto-ThrashMetal... Then it segues into two minutes of acoustic-guitar-based latin rock. The last two minutes of the song originated as a totally unrelated in-studio improvisation that they decided to incorporate into the song.

* "Born to Be Blue" by the Judds. The first 1:05 is a slow, bluesy piano piece, then the guitars and drums kick in and the tempo increases.

* According to a survey done by Komar and Melamid in the mid 90s, this was one of the most disliked musical tropes of the time, resulting in its inclusion in "The Most Unwanted Song."

* Music/RollingStones' "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" shifts from a hard rocking howler to a gentler but building sax solo piece that takes up more than the last half of the song

* MiracleOfSound's ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite''-inspired song "Dream of The Sky" goes from faux-Christian hymn about the game's city in the sky and WhiteMansBurden, to a soul music anthem of rebellion that sounds like it could be sung by a prison ChainGang, to an Irish folk song about the opression of that minority within the city, back to the hymn for the chorus, to an oddball section about quantum physics, and finally to a LonelyPianoPiece that serves as a CallBack to his song for the first ''VideoGame/BioShock1'' game. All of that in ''one'' song!

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKjOJuPjiu4 Infinite's theme]][[note]]preformed by ''Music/{{Dangerkids}}'' from ''Videogame/SonicForces'' starts as a generic [[{{Glitch}} glitch hop]] beat. Then it drops, and immediately shifts into some of the heaviest metal in the entire franchise, with the occasional dubstep/glitch hop shining through.
