    help is definetely necessary

    alright here is my problem..


    In the movie a knight's tale(set in the medieval times) they play the song "We will rock you" a 1980's song.

    A "persiflage" I think.

    It makes the whole medieval scene slightly ridiculous

    I would call that "an anachronism".

    All the best,

    I agree.

    That's also how such contradictions/errors are listed in the IMDb.

    That's why I posted that wikipedia link.
    Note:
    The film combines action, comedy, and romance, and is notable for its anachronistic use of classic rock songs, such as Queen's "We Will Rock You" and David Bowie's "Golden Years", in a film that takes place during the Middle Ages.

    Yes, definitely anachronism. I should have looked it up in the first place.
