    As in Hup, Two, Three, Four.
    A friend of mine asked me this and I was stumped. I can't think of more than a few.

    I did think of The Battle of Epping Forest intro by Genesis.
    Got any?

    Pink Floyd - High Hopes

    This song is perfect in so many levels. Best ever lap steel solo. One of the best ever music videos. Best ever last song of a band (not counting 'Endless River'), etc

    My Chemical Romance's "The Black Parade" has marching music in the beginning, and in the outro. Love this song.

    It hit #1 on the Hot 100, so I suppose it counts as a pop song.

    "The Battle of New Orleans" - Johnny Horton

    One reason march music is not prevalent in rock music, leaving out stylistic issues , is it requires an academic drumming technique and since many people have heard real march music deviations are noticeable.
