* 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'').

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* "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''.

* From 1999 until a few years into the TurnOfTheMillennium, "All Star" by Smashmouth was in ''every'' ad for ''everything'' ever. Those ads included the trailers for the ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' movie, the ''InspectorGadget'' movie, and ''{{Shrek}}''.

* KT Tunstall's "Suddenly I See" was used in ''Literature/TheDevilWearsPrada'', and ever since has been used in various trailers for movies, TV, and commercials, usually in scenes where women are empowered. It was even parodied by ''Best Week Ever'' in 2008, which played it with scenes of women working in sweatshops.
