''Carmina Burana'' can be used for a little bit of musical snobbery, distinguishing the people who recognize the work for what it is[[note]]"O Fortuna" is basically [[EmoTeen a college student complaining about how life isn't fair, and probably lamenting a loss at the gambling table]][[/note]] from those who only know it as the music from ''Film/TheOmen1976'' (or ''{{Finlandia}}'', or ''Film/DieHard2'') or indeed from the Old Spice TV advert for aftershave.[[note]] - This ran for forever at least on British TV. Less well-kinown, more pastoral themes from later in the Burana have also been used to sell bread, potatoes and butter on British TV[[/note]]

* ThirtySecondsToMars used to play "O Fortuna" before they came out on stage (more than likely to evoke the same reaction it gets when it's played right before a sporting event). Used most commonly during touring in support of ''A Beautiful Lie'' and used infrequently since then to create some cheap heat amongst older fans and pump up the rest of the crowd.
