* Music/HuskerDu's "Masochism World" jumps all over the place.

* Kyrgyzstan's Darkestrah have a habit of this. All three songs on their debut album ''Sary Oy'' use this extensively, and the first and third have rhythms that get very difficult to follow at times (the second one just switches between 13/8 and 4/4). Their later albums don't use this trope quite as consistently, but there's still quite a bit of it.

[[caption-width-right:350:[[Music/DreamTheater Mike Portnoy]] going over the time signatures to "[[MetropolisPt2ScenesFromAMemory The Dance of Eternity]]". Or as it's called among the band, [[ButForMeItWasTuesday just another Dream Theater song]].]]

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YF99oeiaznk Mushroom Hill Zone (Act 1) theme]] in ''VideoGame/SonicAndKnuckles'' starts with 7/8 + 5/8 + 7/8 + 9/8 + 7/8 + 9/8 before switching to CommonTime. This is kept in the Act 1 remix for the Nintendo3DS version of ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'' (though not the Act 2 remix).

* The first half of Plaistow, NH, black/sludge/post-metal band Vattnet Viskar's "Glory" is in 7/4. The second half has segments in plain old 6/4 and 4/4. There is also a riff in "Breath of the Almighty" near the end of the song that is in 5/4.

There is also a riff in "Breath of the Almighty" near the end of the song that is in 5/4. They've since shortened their name to Vattnet and changed to a lighter style with clean singing, but they're using this trope even more now; for instance, "Dark Black" has a riff in 10/4, "Chains" has a segment in 5+5+5+6/4 (or 21/4), and "Time Will Prove Everything" uses 5/4 in parts of its verses.

* Cascadian BlackMetal band Huldrekall use a pattern that adds up to 20/4 in several sections of "The Will to Freedom" (3+3+3+2+3+3+3)/4. There are several other meter signature changes in the song, some of which add up to UncommonTime and some of which don't. It's a pretty disorienting song.

Later in the same album, "Traversing the Borderland State" has a riff that subdivides into patterns of 14/4 (4+2+4+4)/4.

* Used extensively by the norwegian {{progressive|Metal}} metal band {{Leprous}}, they are specially fond of the 7/8 time signature which they use in a good number of their songs.

* The intro to Music/TheAllmanBrothersBand's "Whipping Post" is in 11/4 (or 3+3+3+2/4) time. Interestingly, Gregg Allman didn't realize what he was penning was unusual, but simply tried to make a 3/4 section sound natural by chopping off one beat. Duane had to show him what 11/4 was.

* The intro to Music/TheAllmanBrothersBand's "Whipping Post" is famously in 11/4 (or 3+3+3+2/4) time. Interestingly, Gregg Allman didn't realize what he was penning was unusual, but simply tried to make a 3/4 section sound natural by chopping off one beat. Duane had to show him what 11/4 was. Less famously, "Black Hearted Woman" has an intro in 7/4 and "Revival" has segments in 5/4.
