* ''MagicTheGathering'' has this with older enchantments' "verse counters", and with other cards like Glorious Anthem (and its green counterpart, Gaea's Anthem), Joraga Bard, Hymn to Tourach, and the like. Mostly music is seen as healing or inspiring others to go on. And yes, there was a Lotus Cobra is Evil cartoon about the Mirran-aligned planeswalkers forming a band because Mirrodin is a plane of [[StealthPun metal]].

* [[Myth/GreekMythology Orpheus]], who had music to soothe the savage beast. And trees and rocks. And Hades himself. But not the Maenads, unfortunately for him.
** It's also worth noting that there are, canonically, precisely three ways for a seafarer to escape the sirens' song. The first two, as seen in ''The Odyssey'', are to stuff your ears with wax so you can't hear the song or be tied up so you can't go to them. The other, as seen in ''Jason and the Argonauts'', is to bring along Orpheus and have him tune up his lyre and sing, ''[[BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame enchanting the sirens themselves into shutting up and just listening]]''.
* In Finnish folklore, Väinämöinen creates the first Kantele and his singing and playing is magically powerful and beautiful, such that he can charm the beast and birds.
** In fact, one of the most famous scenes of the Kalevala is the song battle between Väinämöinen and Joukahainen. When angered by the arrogance of the latter, he sings songs so powerful that lakes swelled up and mountains trembled. With his song he then turned Joukahainen's sled runners into saplings, turned his horse and dog into stone, turned his sword into a lightning bolt and crossbow into a rainbow, and far more. This, of course, led to the younger hero admitting defeat to keep from dying.
* In [[Literature/TheBible The Book of Joshua]], the walls of Jericho fall after the Israelites march around the city for seven days blowing horns, "rock music" being OlderThanFeudalism. Music/TheClash referenced this in their songs "Jericho" and "The Sound of Sinners".

A piece of sheet music which can be played, irrespective of any known ability to play the guitar or lack thereof, by anyone who knows how it is supposed to sound and has access to an electric guitar and amp (playing on any other instrument causes mild revulsion in onlookers). Playing causes apparently permanent effects, from the player simply appearing more attractive; through the spontaneous manifestation of various stage effects; vehicles in the area of effect being polymorphed into classic hot rods or muscle cars, motorcycles becoming custom bikes; female observers being regressed to around 18 years old, with 68% of cases also experiencing transmogrification of clothing into lingerie, G-string bikinis and leather fetish gear; manifestation of female 18-year-olds if none are present, as well as large quantities of alchohol, dinosaurs, dragons and female angels; resurrection or reanimation of nearby corpses; spontaneous pregnancies... However if played too long, a being known as SCP-1987-J-1 will appear, and demand you stop playing or challenge him to a guitar duel he calls an "Epic Rockdown of Rocktimate Rockstiny" for the title of "ultimate Rockness". Noone knows what that is, as noone has won, and the penalty for failure is being polymorphed into a middle-aged guy named Earl who works in a garage. These are now being classified as D-class, as there are far more of them than is needed for the site's motor pool.
