* In ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'', the BigBad Immortan Joe brings his background music with him into battle, in the shape of a truck carrying a horde of taiko drummers and a blind maniac playing a double-necked electric guitar that '''shoots fire'''. [[RuleOfCool It's that kind of film]].

* ''Film/ThingsChange'': The soundtrack for the opening credits is an Italian-style solo on mandolin. As the scene fades in, we see someone playing a mandolin. He stops, tunes it, plays some more, tries another mandolin off a wall, and takes it to the cash register of the music shop he's in. He passes by two characters who are actually relevant to the movie, and the plot begins.

* All of the weapons in the original Captain Forever games are quite musical when fired, and change tone as well, enough weapons will make entire songs as you vaporize various foes.

* 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" (a song by Bob Denver, who [[AuthorExistenceFailure died in such a crash]] in RealLife) plays in-universe, it's a warning that Death is about to strike.

[[folder:Web Video]]
* Every once in a while in ''WebVideo/LovelyLittleLosers'', one of the characters will post a video of a song they wrote and performed themselves. Most of the time, the songs comment obliquely on what's been happening in the story. Sometimes, they even clue viewers into what's happened off-screen. For much of the series, these songs are the only real insight the viewers get into the characters' inner lives.
