One of the first examples is Arnold Schoenberg's Pierrot lunaire.

Atonal music is, roughly, any music without a key.

We had to study it in a music history course and I actually came to enjoy it - although it was a bit hard on the ears the first time through.

Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes hurtling down the highway.
