* British TV series ''Freefonix'' is set in the future, where, apparently, The Power of Rock can be used to make the musician fly, control people's minds, and ''reverse time''.

* In Joe Horne's series of 1-minute animated shorts "Stevie and Zoya," which debuted on {{MTV}} in the late 1980s, there is a scene where the title characters blast rock and roll from a boombox to rescue a group of people who have been turned into [[{{DeaderThanDisco}} disco zombies]] and turn them back into themselves.

* And then there's ''RockADoodle'' (which Creator/DonBluth fans normally [[FanonDiscontinuity do NOT like to talk about]]). The movie is a ''very'' loose re-imagining of the tale of Chanticleer, the singing rooster who believes he alone summons the sunlight with his voice. In this case, Chanticleer is an Elvis {{Expy}} who (very) gradually learns that his golden tones are the ''only'' thing that can stop an evil wizard owl who wants to plunge the world into eternal nighttime.

* Val Hallen, from the ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' ShowWithinAShow "Justice Friends," is based around this concept. He's the Viking god of Rock, and the local parody of the MarvelComics version of Thor. Too bad he [[TheDitz can't actually make it work]].

* One editor said it best in [[http://www.geocities.com/tragicthedragon/reviews/rocknrule.htm her review]] of ''WesternAnimation/RockAndRule'': "A dark magician old-arse rock star's wicked plans are thwarted by [[PettingZooPeople Furries]] who sing early 80's rock music. Yes, that is the actual plot." To be more specific, the Power of Rock can summon a demon, and the PowerOfLove can send it back -- specifically, the power of Debbie Harry of Music/{{Blondie}} and Robin Zander of CheapTrick singing a duet together.
