* A slew of films have used the Music/DavidBowie[=/=]Music/{{Queen}} collaboration "Under Pressure" in their trailers -- namely ''Film/{{Stepmom}}'' (also used in the film's opening sequence), ''Film/TheGirlNextDoor'', the ''Film/{{Arthur}}'' remake (that trailer also used Bowie's "Rebel Rebel"), and ''WesternAnimation/{{Minions}}''. Never mind that the pressure the song is discussing is that of dealing with a world gone mad, rather than raising stepkids or romantic travails.

* And for kid's comedies that are less gross and more heartwarming, "Walking on Sunshine" by Katrina and the Waves is a popular choice.

** For clarity, the song is called "Lux Aeterna" and was written (by Clint Mansell) as the main theme for ''Film/RequiemForADream''. It's become the default action/sci-fi/epic/drama/pretty-much-any-genre music for trailers, since it was used in the trailers for ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings''.

* Gary Jules' cover of Tears for Fears' "Mad World" is becoming popular for Horror/Action trailers during [[SoundtrackDissonance fast-paced montages of violence and/or desolation]], as evidenced by its use in commercials for ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar'' and ''Film/TheCrazies''.

* Up until the mid-2000s, a handful of tracks ("Name of the Game", for example) by Music/TheCrystalMethod and Music/TheProdigy were very popular in ads for everything from energy drinks to action movies. The use of big beat has become a DeadHorseTrope in advertising now, and has contributed the [[GenreKiller death]] of classic, FatboySlim-style big beat.
* Blink-182's "All the Small Things" is a popular choice for [[DawsonCasting teen comedies starring actors in their late 20s]]. Also, any comedy where something is small (e.g., ''Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'').

* The trailers for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JcpWXaA2qeg ''Toy Story 3'']], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bskgNOXbdiE the English dub of ''Ponyo'']], and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9vRrYrgjAk ''Furry Vengeance'']] all feature the same piece of background music. Considering these were all released around the same time (late-2009 to mid-2010), maybe that piece was a popular and easy option to use.

* As also mentioned above, "Requiem for a Tower" is pretty popular for overwrought Sci-Fi/Action epics. Hell, even ''TheDaVinciCode'' used it.

* "Runaway Baby" by Music/BrunoMars is incredibly popular for fast-paced trailers. An example that comes to mind is ''WesternAnimation/EscapeFromPlanetEarth'', which heavily featured the song in its promotional packaging.

So you're leaning back in your comfy theater chair, next to your significant other, munching on overpriced lobby snacks, when the [[ComingAttractions previews]] come on. The first opens with some dramatic InAWorld narration about the EarthThatWas...but wait a minute. That music sure sounds familiar. "[[Film/RequiemForADream Requiem for]] [[LordOfTheRings a Tower]]", again? The next trailer is for some run-of-the-mill PG-rated EddieMurphy ToiletHumor kiddy comedy. It's "I Feel Good" by James Brown! Again!

* As mentioned above, Music/JamesBrown's "I Feel Good" is the go-to song for inane kids' comedies based around ToiletHumor and EddieMurphy [[ActingForTwo playing all the characters]]. In fact, its status as a cliché was [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in ''Film/TropicThunder''.
