Ironically, Music/RichardWagner initially opposed the use and performance of the piece outside of the original opera, even going as far as to write letters of complaint to publishers who sold the sheet music as a separate work. Also ironically, the scene in ''Film/ApocalypseNow'' that served as the TropeCodifier was meant to allude to UsefulNotes/NaziGermany ([[HitlerAteSugar Hitler was a huge fan of Wagner]] and [[MusicToInvadePolandTo often used his music to rally his troops]]), reflecting how the soldiers in that scene are intended to be viewed as war criminals--[[MisaimedFandom not that it worked]].
