-->-- '''Faye''' of ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'' learning about "[[HeavyMithril Mythic Slaughterbeast]]".

%% Note: Examples should cover lyrics. Musical styles fall under "Neoclassical Punk Zydeco Rockabilly".

* 'Praise be to Jesus... Praise be to Magic Woody Allen Zombie Superman Komodo Dragon Telepathic Vampire Quantum Hovercraft ‘Me’ Jesus!' TimMinchin in Woody Allen Jesus
* This forms the basis for many of neo-acidrockers Monster Magnet's lyrics, and the band's entire image for that matter. What's more, they took the band's name from a song by the [[Music/FrankZappa Mothers of Invention]] called "The Return of the Son of Monster Magnet". Emphasis on "son" here.
** Even more so for the obscure metal band Manilla Road, who have written concept albums about KingArthur returning in the far future to fight demons on Mars or Creator/HPLovecraft's Great Old Ones battling the Aesir for the control of a newly risen Atlantis.
* In the music video for "I Believe in a Thing Called Love" by British glam rockers The Darkness, the band's spaceship is attacked by a giant space octopus, which they destroy with ThePowerOfRock. Yes. A literal rock.
* Similiarly, the video for "Burn It Off" by the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion has the band landing an ocean liner on a mysterious island, and being attacked by a variety of monsters from the films of Ray Harryhausen, which they fight off with [[ThePowerOfRock the power of blues-influenced rock 'n' roll.]] It also involves shark-airplanes flown by [[DemBones skeletons]].
* Continuing on that theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3fa-sjsvno the video]] for Jason Forrest's "War Photographer" features [[HumongousMecha Giant]] TransformingMecha, piloted by vikings, battling each other with the power of rock. And the power of an acid-spewing marching band.
* Music genres tend to be created this way. Blues + country = rock. Rock + classical = prog rock. The most obvious is Psychobilly, which is rockabilly about zombies and skeletons played by people in corpse paint.
** One such psychobilly band has the improbably awesome/hard-to-remember name "The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster". One of their songs, "Puppy Dog Snails", is about a juvenile delinquent being pursued by ogres and beating them up. Or something.
** Symphonic power metal, which can be described as heavy metal but more epic and with an orchestral backing.
** [[http://tinpan.fortunecity.com/laudanum/622/cdmetal.html Christian Death Metal]].
** Folktronic: folk music + electronica.
*** [[http://www.jamendo.com/en/album/4722 Xera]] is a Spanish Celtronic (Celtic + electronic) band.
** Folk Metal. Metal? Good. [[EverythingsLouderWithBagpipes Bagpipes]]? Great. Metal with bagpipes? Fucking amazing.
** "Ompa" + a pump organ + rock+ Norwegian = Music/KaizersOrchestra
** klezmer + reggae + rap + hassidic breakdance = [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRvcf7CKpOo crazy awesome unleaded]].
** Shamisen (Japanese tradition music) + metal = God of Shamisen (the musical equivalent of a ninja pirate)
* The third album of ''Psychostick'' is named "Space Vampires [=VS=] Zombie Dinosaurs [[ThirdIs3D in 3D]]".
* Music/{{Muse}}'s video for "Music/KnightsOfCydonia" features a BadassLongcoat in the Old West, kung-fu, laser guns, robots, the Ku Klux Klan, a holographic rock band, Communist imagery, and a heroine in a chainmail bikini on a unicorn. It ends with the hero using a laser disc to kill the corrupt sheriff, then riding into the sunset on a motorcycle.
* The Cat Empire - already awesome enough, as they are an Australian Latin-jazz ska funk band - have a song called "Voodoo Cowboy". What's more, the song lives up to the name. The eponymous cowboy's mother was a snake, and his father was a scarecrow, "Born in the desert with his hat on his head". The desert "was his bitch". Oh, and he had a horse and died finding a woman to love at the bottom of a lake at the edge of the world.
* The Plastic Constellations' "Let's War." HOLY CRAP, THAT SERPENT'S BREATHING FIRE!
* "The UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny" by Music/LemonDemon, which deals with an enormous battle between practically every action movie star and superhero from the past twenty years. And [[spoiler: Mr. Rogers]] is the winner.
* The Russian Rock song "Gorbachev" by ANJ is a perfect example of this trope. The music video features not only an army of [[ZombieApocalypse zombie]] [[DirtyCommunists Stalins]] with [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampiric tendencies]], but also an enormous battleship, the band's drummer in a gas mask, and a Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian-esque Mikhail Gorbachev armed with an axe, a gun, and laser eyes rushing into battle to save hot girls.
* SongsToWearPantsTo's [[http://www.songstowearpantsto.com/songs/we-are-the-robot-pirates We Are The Robot Pirates]]. Both for the reason you'd expect, and because the song is performed in a style that could be best described as Techno Hip-Hop Sea Chantey. [[http://www.songstowearpantsto.com/songs/step-in-2-tha-barber-hop-hip-shop/ Step Into Tha Barber Hop Hip Shop]] and [[http://www.songstowearpantsto.com/songs/celtic-techno-burrito Celtic Techno Burrito]] probably apply as well.
** Now there's the opposite of robot pirates: [[http://www.songstowearpantsto.com/songs/zombie-ninjas/ Zombie Ninjas]].
* On the subject of album art, take a look at Music/JudasPriest's [[http://www.joxerecordings.de/Judas_Priest_-_Painkiller-front.jpg Painkiller]]. It's a chrome-plated cyborg angel riding a dragon motorcycle with buzzsaws for wheels.
-->Faster than a bullet\\
Terrifying scream\\
[[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Enraged and full of anger]]\\
He's half man and half machine\\
Rides the metal monster\\
Breathing smoke and fire\\
Closing in with vengeance, soaring high
** Along with Painkiller example above, take a look at other Judas Priest characters:
*** The Hellion, giant robot bird with missiles which ''screams for vengeance''.
*** Less popular ones are Metallian, Master of all metal (a giant psychedelic devil-horned tiger tank with missiles, from ''Defenders of the Faith'') and Jugulator from Tim "Ripper" Owens era, an [[TheAntiChrist antichrist]] to Painkiller's [[MessianicArchetype messiah]]. Almost all of their covers have been pretty intense:
*** ''Sad Wings Of Destiny'' - A FallenAngel in Hell.
*** ''Sin After Sin'' - A decayed [[AncientGrome Greco-Roman temple]] surrounded by skulls.
*** ''Stained Class'' - A steel mannequin having its head pierced by a multicolored laser beam.
*** ''Killing Machine'' - A plaster likeness of Rob Halford, wearing his trademark [[CoolShades shades]] and biker cap.
*** ''British Steel'' - A razor blade being wielded like a shiv.
*** could go on....
* Many Metal band mascots venture into this territory:
** Music/RunningWild's mascot is Adrian, undead werewolf pirate who is also son of Satan.
** US Power Metal band Phantom had a cyborg werewolf with wings.
** Most famous is Music/IronMaiden's Eddie, who is a time-traveling undead evil albino metalhead with too many occupations throughout history to list.
* Music/{{Apocalyptica}}, the Sibelius-Academy-trained cello-metal ensemble, who began as a Metallica tribute band. Seriously, though.
* The video for Music/VanHalen's cover of "Pretty Woman" features a transvestite being molested by midgets working for Napoleon and being rescued by Tarzan, a samurai and a cowboy at the behest of a hunchback.
* Somewhere in Website/YouTube, you will see the ultimate {{Otaku}} music fantasy: A song made for ''VideoGame/TheIdolMaster'' with a Music/{{Vocaloid}} Creator/RieKugimiya-bot [[EarWorm singing]] the ''Manga/MariaHolic'' [[{{UsefulNotes/Kawaisa}} version]] of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSCS_rLgEHQ Kimi Ni Mune Kyun]].
* The videos and backstory of Major Lazer have a lot of fun with lasers, zombies, vampires, pimps, mummies, rockets and partying hard.
* "[[LongTitle Dixie Rose Deluxe's Honky-Tonk, Feed Store, Gun Shop, Used Car, Beer, Bait, BBQ, Barber Shop, Laundromat]]" by Trent Willmon, which describes an impossibly well-stocked store and the narrator's relationship with the characters inside.
* Battalion 88's black metal techno album ''Tie of Times'' has Nazi viking space marines. They are 100% serious.
* Gor-Gor of Music/{{GWAR}} is a zombie T-Rex who ends up fighting a cyborg in live shows.
* [[http://www.jamendo.com/en/artist/Man-Witch Man-Witch]] project has a lot of fun with this. Song titles include ''Flaming Pillow Of Fear'', ''Wrastle[[Franchise/{{Castlevania}} vania]] [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} 65000]]'', ''Thunderhogg'', ''Necro-Atomic-Abominomicon'' and ''Superultramegaterrifyafearinator''. And two latter tongue twisters are {{title drop}}ped in the refrain, no less.
* Though done more for [[RuleOfFunny laughs]] than for awesome: Music/TheBeatles + Music/{{Metallica}} = [[http://www.beatallica.com/ Beatallica]], authors of songs such as "Fuel on the Hill", "The Thing That Should Not Let It Be", "And Justice for All My Loving" and "Blackened the USSR".
* Music/{{Lordi}}'s song ''Get Heavy'' begins with the lyrics "Spasmodic '84 Electric Dinosaur Desperado Vampire" and then continues later with "warp into monster disco hell" as well.
* Then there's Dread Zepplin, about which The Other Wiki says that they [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dread_Zeppelin are best known for performing the songs of Led Zeppelin in a reggae style as sung by a bulky Vegas Elvis impersonator.]]
* The video for "Country Song" by Music/{{Seether}} has clowns, soldiers, astronauts, luchadores and many others in a western setting. Understandable since it's the personification/realistic depiction of a small boy's play-time (these characters are all toys and dolls).
* The stories in Music/{{Gackt}}'s music contain many of these, such as [[StupidJetpackHitler Cyborg Nazis]] and [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampire Knights]]. His concerts can also be said to be this, since they're designed to be combination's of rock concerts, movies, and musicals.
* Anything by Music/NinjaSexParty. The name speaks for itself. Also see: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LcmBALxDkRY Dinosaur Laser Fight]] (Lyrics NSFW)
* From the concept album ''The Last Hero on Earth'' by Music/TomSmith, we have the Pirate Ninjas from Dino Island. Even better, they're SpacePirates!
* In "One More Drinkin' Song" by Jerrod Niemann, he says that his favorite drink is a "marga-daiquiri-screw-olada on the beach".
* Junior Brown is a guitarist known for playing a "guit-steel", a double-necked guitar where one neck is a regular electric guitar, and the other is a lap steel.
* Music/{{Gloryhammer}}:On their second album, ''Space 1992: Rise of the Chaos Wizards'', it is revealed that the HOOTSMAN is a conquer and movie star, and near the end it is revealed he is named Marion and "is a cyborg powered by a neutron star."
* Music/OingoBoingo's "Dead Man's Party" is a musical version. A combination of surf rock and psychedelia, with bossa nova horns and vaguely Southeast Asian chimes in the background.
* A [[https://soundcloud.com/cyriak-1/sets/music-for-video-games set of songs]] created by WebAnimation/{{Cyriak}} includes song titles such as "Attack of the Spider-clowns", "Mega Robo-Clown Boss Battle" or "Hiding from the Robo-zombies".
* In Hip Hop, Music/{{Kool Keith}} (as Dr. Octagon), provides Halfsharkalligatorhalfman. Probably tucking in Music/{{Nas}}' [[https://youtube.com/wstch?v=3h0aTGnHU4 half man half amazing]], anted up by the Illmatic song's proclamation of being an Afrocentric Asian.
* Hellblinki's song "Sanjula's Junk" explicitly mentions saving up the "princely woe-begotten orphaned zombie pirate kings" that didn't fit into other stories.
