''Also Sprach Zarathustra'' (''Thus Spake Zarathustra'') is a tone poem composed by Richard Strauss in 1896 (named after the book by Creator/FriedrichNietzsche). The melody of the "Sunrise" movement is undeniably ''epic'', so it's a perfect way to tell the audience, "This is where you're supposed to be impressed."

* When you view the credits in ''EA Sports''' ''NHL 2001'', a remixed version of the song is played in the background- perhaps in reference to the year in the game's title.

* ''VideoGame/{{Forza}} Horizon 3'' has ''Also Sprach Zarathustra'' in its soundtrack as part of its classical music station Timeless FM. It also plays during a Bucket List challenge where players drive a [[CoolCar Koenigsegg One:1]] down an airport runway at sunrise to hit a top speed past a speed trap.



* Parodied in ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'': Hannelore [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=707 mentions]] one of the big drawbacks of living in a space station is having to listen to Also Sprach Zarathustra every time the sun rises.

* ''Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' had a scene with Zaphod dramatically speaking while AlsoSprachZarathustra grew in volume under him, until Zaphod tells Marvin to cut it out, whereupon the final two notes barely make it out.

* Used in ''WesternAnimation/WallE'', when the Captain becomes the first human in centuries to [[spoiler:[[Awesome/{{Pixar}} stand up]]]]. They originally put the score in as a joke, but test audiences cheered, so they [[ThrowItIn left it in]].
