Faux Cyrillic

  • Frank Zappa's "I Don't Wanna Get Drafted" single features the text "IБ ТНIБ ТЯIP ЯEДГГУ ИEСEББДЯУ ?" (IS THIS TRIP REALLY NECESSARY ?).
  • The poster in the scene on the cover of Firesign Theatre's album How Can You Be in Two Places at Once When You're Not Anywhere at All reads "ДLL HДIL" (Groucho) "MДЯX" (John) "LЗИИФЙ".
  • The British indie rock band ¡FФЯWДЯD, RUSSIД! (FORWARD, RUSSIA!) use both faux Cyrillic and decorative inverted exclamation points to add the effect of foreignness in their wordmark.

Metal Umlaut

  • On their second album In Search of Space (1971), Hawkwind wrote on the backside of the cover: "TECHNICIÄNS ÖF SPÅCE SHIP EÅRTH THIS IS YÖÜR CÄPTÅIN SPEÄKING YÖÜR ØÅPTÅIN IS DEA̋D".
  • German punk band Die Ärzte have been using three dots over the "A" in Ärzte since their 2003 album Geräusch.
  • In the mockumentary film This Is Spın̈al Tap (spelled with an umlaut mark over the n), fictional rocker David St. Hubbins (Michael McKean) says, "It's like a pair of eyes. You're looking at the umlaut, and it's looking at you."
