Try here: Google Search: We Will Rock You
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.
what is that called?
A "persiflage" I think.
It makes the whole medieval scene slightly ridiculous

I would call that "an anachronism".
All the best,
That's why I posted that wikipedia link.
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.
