* Level 1-9 in ''VideoGame/{{Nitemare 3D}}'' had a scripted sequence where your weapon would jam, and the only way to deal with the enemies in the room is to turn on a conveniently placed radio, which makes them dance out of the way of the door you need to open. The radio cuts out after a few seconds and they return to normal. [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything But if you like, you can turn around once your weapon is available again, shoot them, and turn the radio back on]], [[DiegeticSwitch at which point it continues playing until the end of the level]].

* ''Film/Predator'' has the main cast listening to [[{{Music/LittleRichard}} "Long Tall Sally"]] on the chopper's PA during the flight in-country. [[spoiler: Later towards the movie's climax, Mac sings the song himself as he's slowly going mad from being hunted by the Predator.]]

* [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] often in HBO's ''Series/{{Westworld}}.'' The pianola in the Mariposa saloon is often set to play piano versions of various popular songs, such as ''No Surprises'' by Music/{{Radiohead}} or ''Black Hole Sun'' by Music/{{Soundgarden}}. The music is played to please the guests of the park's saloon, but the lyrics of the original songs also tend to relate to the scene at hand.

** In ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMansChest'', [[BigBad Davy Jones']] theme is a haunting combination of a tune first played from a music box and then played on an OminousPipeOrgan, and actually comes from his musical locket which is his only memory of the love he used to have, and is played by him on the [[CoolShip Flying Dutchman's]] organ, respectively.
** There's also the tavern band in Tortuga accompanying a barroom brawl with a merry hornpipe, and Scrum playing tango music to which Jack and Angelica can dance. And there's a subversion in the first movie -- when Elizabeth first sees the cursed pirated in their skeletal forms, two of them are sitting on the capstan and playing music -- but we can't hear what they're playing, just the background music.

* This trope is ''weaponized'' in the first ''Film/FinalDestination'' movie, in which the characters narrowly escape death in a plane crash. Ever since, every time "Rocky Mountain High" by John Denver (who [[AuthorExistenceFailure died in a plane crash]] in RealLife) plays in-universe, it's a warning that Death is about to strike.
** In ''The Final Destination'', when the redneck suffers DeathByRacism, [[{{Irony}} "Why Can't We Be Friends?" by War plays on his car radio]].

** In certain locations, an EasterEgg source music from Bungie's ''VideoGame/{{Myth}}'' games called "Siege Of Madrigal" can be heard.
** During the Pvt. Jenkins helmet cam cutscene, the Marines are listening to "flip music"(heavy-metal type stuff) aboard the Pelican. This song is unfortunately not on the soundtrack album.
