Added DiffLines:

* Briefly heard in a cutscene in VideoGame/DestroyAllHumans:
--->I don't know but I've been told\\
Joe [=McCarthy's=] good as gold!

Added DiffLines:

* No surprise that Film/MajorPayne would make his JROTC squad do these a few times. One example being when they complain about the less-than-luxurious barracks and Payne responds by burying them in a mud patch.
--> ''Love my barracks night and day.\\
Won't complain; that's where I'll stay.''

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''WesternAnimation/ReadyJetGo'' episode "Earth Camping":
--> I don't know but I've been told\\
I don't know but I've been told
-->Camping songs will never get old\\
Camping songs will never get old!


* ''Film/HotShots'' has a FunnyBackgroundEvent wherein a group of sailors is doing calisthenics to the theme of ''Series/TheBradyBunch''.

* In a bit of CulturalCrossReference, the Ground Forces trainees in ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' are shown using the "If I die in the combat zone" cadence of ''Film/FullMetalJacket'' [[AllThereInTheManual in the manga set before the third season]].

* TruthInTelevision. Songs like this are very much a part of life in the armed forces, especially during basic training since they allow a person to focus on something other than the monotonous/unpleasant job at hand. They are particularly common in the [[YanksWithTanks US Armed Forces]], which are generally accepted to have originated the "Jody Call" (probably with black soldiers; [[CallAndResponseSong call-and-response songs]] are an integral part of Black American culture). A simple Google search for "Jody Calls" will yield many examples of these songs. Unfortunately, the traditional whimsical tone of Jody Calls isn't immune to abuse, and on occasion, soldiers have voiced discomfort about Jody Calls they've felt are ''too'' racist or homophobic. This trend seems a minor issue at best these days, and most calls (like the ones listed here) certainly aren't meant to be taken as the literal meaning of their words.

Added DiffLines:

* In the novelization of ''{{VideoGame/Wishbringer}}'', the Boot Patrol (at this time the alternate version of Festeron's police force rather than a force of enormous summoned boots) likes loud cadences to accompany their near ceaseless patrol for curfew-breakers. The cadences are seemingly impromptu, usually appropriate to their immediate activity and serve to warn people of their approach or pursuit. [[TheGuardsMustBeCrazy They do this regardless]] because they ''really like'' this trope; that in turn is enforced because they're part of a ritualized struggle for control over the town's dominant nature and are far too effective whenever people ''don't'' hear them coming.
