"Hypno K.K." is a K.K. Slider song that first appears in Animal Crossing: City Folk as a live-only performance, and with an aircheck version in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. The song may be based off of hauntology music. The genre is characterized by distorted psychedelic sounds that may give the listener a sense of nostalgia or inner peace. The live version of the song is more akin to neo-psychedelia, a revival genre from the 1980s which modernized psychedelic music from the 1960s by combining it with alternative rock.

Based on its original Japanese name, the tone of the song may have originally intended to be soothing or dream-like. This is reflected by the English name — "hypno-" as a prefix relates to sleep — as well as how Sherb, a sleep-themed lazy goat, plays it in his house. The name may also be inspired by hypnagogic pop, a subgenre of hauntology and neo-psychedelia.
