* Naturally, "Gay Fish" from ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' is sung with a heavy dose of auto-tune, as it's a parody of Kanye West's "Heartless."

* Naturally, "Gay Fish" from ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' is sung with a heavy dose of auto-tune, as it's a parody of Kanye West's "Heartless."" Trey Parker often relates a humorous story about having to sing badly on purpose just to make the effect sound right.

Added DiffLines:

* [=ZdoggMD=] and a pediatrician named Dr. Harry poke fun at auto-tune in their video "Auto-tune Bad News." They use auto-tune singing to inform one patient that her fiance has been cheating on her and gave her gonorrhea, and another patient that they amputated the wrong leg. It's also used against them by a patient asking for opioid pain medications and disability forms.

Added DiffLines:

* Flex Entertainment is an American record label founded in 2018. Many of their signed artists abuse Auto-Tune for comedic effects, making them sound like incomprehensible robots. Flex's worst offenders include Submarine Man, Lil Meerkat, and Footye North.

Added DiffLines:

* Guy Diamond from ''WesternAnimation/{{Trolls}}'' can Auto-Tune his voice at will, and does this randomly when he talks.


* Music/BonIver uses Auto-Tune in the songs "Wolves" and "Beth/Rest". Taking it even further, "Woods" is nothing ''but'' Auto-Tuned vocals, layered one on top of another.

* Music/BonIver uses Auto-Tune in the songs "Wolves" and "Beth/Rest". Taking it even further, "Woods" is nothing ''but'' Auto-Tuned vocals, layered one on top of another. The vocals to the album ''22, A Million'' are processed almost entirely through Auto-Tuning.


* In ''Series/TheNewEdtionStory'', the majority of Woody [=McCain=]'s vocals are clearly heavily processed with Auto-Tune any time he sings one of Music/BobbyBrown's songs. This is partly justified since he was originally a dancer, not a singer, prior to being cast as Bobby Brown.

* The opening to "Keep Your Distance" by Music/PattyLoveless ("If I ''cross'' your ''path'' again"), and oddly, nowhere else in the song.
* Joe Nichols uses it for the entirety of his album ''Old Things New'', causing him to sound unnaturally cold and tinny, particularly on "Gimmie That Girl".
* Music/FloridaGeorgiaLine frequently have their voices corrected with Auto-Tune, especially on songs where Brian Kelley shares the lead vocal due to him having a weaker voice than usual lead singer Tyler Hubbard. The remix of "Cruise" featuring Music/{{Nelly}} drowns the whole song in it, and "May We All" also applies it liberally to duet partner Music/TimMcGraw's voice.
* As with Fast Ryde above, Music/TimMcGraw's 2014 single "Looking for That Girl" was originally recorded with Auto-Tune, but an alternate mix was also sent out with it removed.

It's most noticeable with Music/FloridaGeorgiaLine, but he has also done it on songs where Brian Kelley shares the lead vocal due to him having a weaker voice than usual lead singer Tyler Hubbard. by Music/JakeOwen, Chris Lane, and Dallas Smith.

* ''WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesOfHistory'' uses this for StephenHawking rather than the program the real Hawking uses to speak. This is because if you've ever heard Stephen Hawking speak, you know you can't ''rap'' with that program.

* {{Rihanna}} uses this in a few songs, notably "Disturbia" and her T.I. collaboration "Live Your Life". Justified in these two; in "Disturbia" it is used to create distortion to aid the dark atmosphere and vibe of the song, and in "Live Your Life" it's used only on the chorus, and there's a slight surprise when it's not used on her verse.
