* The original ''Film/{{Highlander}}'', with the majority of the soundtrack by {{Queen}}, is quite heavy on this. In one scene, the Kurgan puts in a tape of a song that could not possibly be mistaken for anything other than the theme music of an aggressive Immortal - even worse, the full version contains sound bites from the film. And on top of that, the name of the song includes the subtitle "Kurgan's Theme". Also, "One Year of Love" plays when Connor and Brenda meet, and "Don't Lose Your Head" plays on the radio as the Kurgan goes on a rampage in his car.

* In ''TheSimpsons'' episode "Homer Loves Flanders", Homer just misses out on winning two tickets to a football game in a radio phone-in. In rage, he wallops the radio, which starts playing "Two Tickets To Paradise". Most people would find that bitterly ironic; Homer doesn't even notice, and likes the song so much he calms down.
** And starts singing along. "... got, two tickets to paradise, I've got, two tickets to paradiiiise. Doo dew, doo dew, doo dew, doo deeewwww... aah. Excellent guitar riff."
