* 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.

* TrapMusic originally began in the Southern United States as a variation of hip-hop, categorized by its aggressive lyrics and uses of 808 kick-drums. It had a niche following that was limited mostly to the area. Then, in TheNewTens, elements of it were fused with [[ElectronicMusic EDM]], and it exploded in popularity. Trap music of today sounds little like it used to, yet it continues to carry the name, much to the confusion of original trap fans.

* Music/ProgressiveRock originally got its name from the "progressive" FM radio stations it was played on in the U.S. These were so-called because the [=DJs=] would, between playing the bands' latest ''magna opera'', spend almost as much time as the songs themselves took to play discussing politics from a progressive (i.e., very leftish) perspective. The name for the subgenre has remained even as the stations became increasingly all about the music, and even as FM radio of the early 1970s evolved into today's classic-rock format.
