* Pretty much any band of youngsters identified as "boys", "girls" (maybe less so) or "kids" (i.e. BackstreetBoys, TheBeachBoys, NewKidsOnTheBlock) where the members have grown up automatically becomes this. It happened to Music/SonicYouth long before their hiatus and will apply to Youth Group (whose biggest hit to date is a cover of Alphaville's "Forever Young") if they ever emerge from their own hiatus.

* DuranDuran's 1983 followup to their breakthrough smash album ''Rio'' was called ''Seven and the Ragged Tiger'', after a storyline that Simon [=LeBon=] had originally envisioned going through all the songs about a group of rebels challenging a repressive state. During the album's [[TroubledProduction/{{Music}} difficult production history]], that idea was dropped in favor of just getting the record finished on time. Other than the title, it survives only in the concept for the "New Moon on Monday" video (more evident in the longer version).

* The "TVT" in now-defunct record label TVT Records technically stands for "[=TeeVee=] Toons": The label's first release was ''Television's Greatest Hits'', a compilation of TV {{theme song}}s. Though TVT kept releasing the occasional collection of tv themes or commercial jingles throughout it's run, it became better known for music well outside that niche, signing successful acts such as NineInchNails and LilJon.

* ''Music/{{Ayreon}}'s title character dies at the end of the first album, and subsequent albums don't feature him at all or have anything to do with him, apart from one song on a later album. Now a completely new story has started, making the title even more of an artifact.

* Music/GeorgeStrait's ''50 Number Ones'' contained all 50 of his #1 hits to date, plus the new song "I Hate Everything" as a 51st track. Said song was released as a single... and it went to #1 as well, thus invalidating the album's title in mere months!
* Music/{{Blondie}} was so named because there were two other blonde singers present for their early rehearsals, both of whom left before they ever played live or recorded anything.

** Similarly, we still refer to discrete selections from an album as "tracks" or "cuts", which makes the most sense on vinyl, even in the digital-download/subscription-streaming era.

* AlternativeRock used to be a less known alternative for the more mainstream sounds at the time of their origin. Nowadays it doesn't make as much sense due to popularity. In fact, it's rare to find a modern rock band without "alternative rock" or "indie rock" on their Wikipedia page.
** Although some interpret this to be in contrast to the 60s-70s-80s 'classic rock' genre.
