Question by Double A plus B: Other than Persepolis and Rocky, what other films played or even mentioned Eye of the Tiger?
I know, I know, we ALL heard it before, but I don’t think I know all the films that have this song: Eye of the Tiger. Can anyone give me the full list of movies that have played or even mentioned this song and who wrote it for that matter?

Honestly, this isn’t a copout answer. It’s just that the song has been used and referred to a lot, even parodied. Here’s the song’s Wikipedia page, which includes how the song came about~by personal request by Sylvester Stallone to the rock band Survivor.
The following are included on the list:
The song is sung in the movie “Asterix and the Vikings”.
The song is heard in “Big Fat Liar” when one of the jocks is doing sit-ups.
Ben Stiller sings the song in the film “Night at the Museum” over the loudspeaker at the American Museum of Natural History at night.
Jim Peterik co-wrote the song, but I can’t find an answer as to his partner or whether he simply co-wrote it with the help of the group members. Here are links to Wikipages for Peterik and Survivor:
