Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu: Music
  • In Leslie Fish's Filk Song "Where, Oh Where, Has Cthulhu Gone", the Great Old Ones pack up and leave Earth, frightened by the invention of the atom bomb (and man's eagerness to use it).
    Where, oh where are the Old Ones gone?
    Scrambled back to their darkling lands
    They have fled with a rare good sense
    The lightnings held in human hands
  • This Ear Worm about narwhals has a lyric that claims "they stop Cthulhu from eating ye", before showing an octopus-like creature (most likely Cthulhu) attacking a boat and subsequently being impaled by the horn of a narwhal.
  • The song "Intergalactic" by the Beastie Boys has a music video that depicts what appears to be a robot made of Erector Set taking on what looks like Cthulhu. Erector-Bot wins by punching the Eldest One into some power lines.
  • In their song "Tribute" Tenacious D claim to have bested a demon by The Power of Rock.
  • In the Charlie Daniels Band song "The Devil Went Down to Georgia", Satan challenges a violinist named Johnny to a fiddle-playing competition. A solid-gold fiddle against Johnny's soul. Johnny takes the bet, warning the Devil, "I'm the best that's ever been." Once they play, the Devil doesn't even need to be told that he lost, handing over the gold fiddle without a word. Johnny responds with one of the most badass lyrics, ever. Ever. "Just come on back if you ever want to try again. I told you once, you son of a bitch, I'm the best that's ever been." (it appears in Guitar Hero III as BGM to a guitar-battle with Lou)
    • The Devil tries again in the follow-up song "The Devil Comes Back To Georgia" after Johnny has married and has at least one kid. Predictably, Johnny beats him again.
  • The GWAR Concept Album Beyond Hell ends with GWAR threatening to "kick The Devil's ass" and succeeding.
