* In ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', Dean listens to music from the '70s and '80s on his collection of ''cassette tapes'', while driving his late-'60s muscle car. It's a shaky example, as Dean has a strong emotional attachment to his car and simply likes the older music, but it's less clear why he thinks Sam installing an iPod jack is heresy.

Later seasons do show them updating their phones to modern smartphones, however, and becoming aware of things like Netflix.

* Although the works of Creator/PGWodehouse are best known for (and indeed written during) their GenteelInterbellumSetting, Creator/GeorgeOrwell pointed out that their depictions of aristocracy and the class system make them fit much more in TheEdwardianEra when Wodehouse himself came of age than the 1920s or 30s in the aftermath of [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI the war]] that destroyed it.

* The (thankfully) canned 2004 Larry Doyle directed ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short "My Generation G-G-Gap" is an almost literal example of this trope. Not only does it depict music and fashions that seem straight out of 1984, but it suggests that rock and roll is still somehow controversial among parents and MoralGuardians, even though it hadn't been controversial since probably the mid-late 1980's at the latest.

* Besides their record of racial oppression, the white minority government of UsefulNotes/SouthAfrica during TheApartheidEra also had very conservative sensibilities, meaning that South Africa was culturally out of step with the rest of the world for a long time. How bad was it? Television wasn't introduced there until 1976!

** Likewise, nearly any Christmas ''album'' will often have a lush, orchestral, 1950's vibe for much of the same reasons, especially if the songs being covered come from approximately that generation (e.g. "Santa Baby").

The "wall of sound" throwback holiday tunes have also gained some traction from TheNineties onwards, most notably in Music/MariahCarey's definitive "All I Want For Christmas Is You" and Music/KellyClarkson's "Underneath the Tree".

*** A humorous anecdote: shock rocker and heavy metal pioneer Alice Cooper (born in 1948) once mentioned in an interview, circa the early 2000s, that when his teenage sun was playing music in his room, Alice would frequently bang on the door and say "Turn that UP!!!"
