- "Roll Tide" is the name of a dramatic piece of orchestral music that was composed by Hans Zimmer for the 1995 Hollywood Pictures film Crimson Tide. Most of film's setting is aboard the USS Alabama, an Ohio-class nuclear-powered fleet ballistic missile submarine.
- "Roll Tide" is the name of a song by the California based American folk-rock band Dawes on their studio album We're All Gonna Die which was released in September, 2016. The song is a melancholy lamentation about love, forgiveness, and reconciliation; it alludes to the Alabama Crimson Tide rallying cry and to the state of Alabama itself, but it also draws upon a more literal, water-based metaphor relating to the word "tide".
- The phrase features as a plot device in season 2 of Jane the Virgin.
- The phrase is sometimes used by Conrad Thompson on the popular Podcast Something to wrestle with Bruce Prichard
