* One task on ''[[Series/TheApprentice The Celebrity Apprentice]]'' was to make an ad for a Mexican-themed beverage. Ian Ziering repeatedly tried get his team to use his suggestion: a jingle to the tune of "La Cucaracha''. However, he was rejected just as repeatedly. After his team lost, he brought it up in the boardroom. Trump was so infuriated that he wanted to use a song he couldn't use, he fired Ziering immediately.

* ''{{VideoGame/Dishonored}}'' has "Drunken Whaler," which follows the tune and basic premise of the well-known real-life sea shanty ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drunken_Sailor Drunken Sailor]]''--threatening new sailors with severe punishment should they be caught drunk or hung over before their shift. This version, however, replaces the original's mix of cruel pranks, impractical hangover cures, and severe (but not permanently damaging) corporal punishments with torturous, cold-blooded murder. And considering the [[CrapsackWorld Crapsack]] setting and dirge-like reverence with which it's sung, it's heavily implied these threats are deadly serious.
