* Created for the [=7DFPS=] competition, ''VideoGame/GameOfTheYear420BlazeIt'' assaults the player with loud dubstep, flashing lights, and internet memes. The game was created as a {{parody}} of montage videos put together by some [[LetsPlay Let's Players]] that features the previously mentioned dubstep, flashing lights, and memes, taking them, cranking them UpToEleven, and rendering it playable. [[https://youtu.be/9R_G0kFPIzo Here, enjoy the fucking madness.]]

** While Vinny himself often encounters accidental examples through corrupted games and others that are just awfully made, the Toad Games stream has an ''epitome'' sent by a {{Troll}} masquerading as an actual game sender, which [[https://youtu.be/WEbQnvTqnwI&feature=youtu.be&t=869 can be heard here]] if you want to euthanize your headphones.

It's played at a glacially slow pace with pretty much the gloomiest instrumentation possible, and the only vocals are [[HarshVocals incomprehensibly low growls]].

* Music/PorterRobinson directly addresses this in the lyrics of "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ardc3nrQMxw Fellow Feeling]]," wherein the girl singing asks the listener to "hear what she hears" before they're graced with synthetic beats and distorted sound, as a parody of modern EDM. She then proceeds to call it "ugliness" and "cruelty." While it's not extremely painful to listen to, it's diegetically considered as such.

* Much like the [[Theatre/TheRiteOfSpring the original version]], ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'''s ''Rite of Spring'' piece features a ''lot'' of sudden loud noises, shrill instruments, loud trumpets, and staccato that can be ''quite'' grating when people (especially children) hear it.

* Odio, the FinalBoss of ''VideoGame/LiveALive'' has an attack called "St. Alicia", which ''also'' assaults the player with a bloodcurdling scream ''very'' much like ''Chrono Trigger'' later did. What's more, [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm emulators sometimes have difficulty recreating the sound effect]] (Same with Lavos's scream), which can make it turn into something even ''worse''.



* Theatre/TheRiteOfSpring by Music/IgorStravinsky is possibly the earliest example of both auditory and visual Sensory Abuse working together. Made in 1913, when this ballet debuted the discordant music, disturbing jerking motions of the dancers, and bizarrely jarring sets caused the audience to boo within the first 15 minutes, then [[http://www.cracked.com/article_19348_the-5-most-embarrassing-things-angry-mobs-have-rioted-over_p2.html riot before it was over]].
