* Allmusic's biography of Music/DaYoopers claims that Jerry Coffey and Dave "Doc" Bradbury joined as bassist and percussionist, respectively, on ''Camp Fever''. Coffey ''did'' make his debut on that album, but ''he'' was the percussionist; Joe [=DeLongchamp=] (who is not mentioned on Allmusic's article at all) played bass on that and the next album, with Bradbury replacing him around 1990. The article is also nearly 20 years out of date (having originally come from when Allmusic was in book form), making no mention of Bradbury's replacement Reggie Lusardi, nor of "Cowboy" Dan Collins, who spent some time as rhythm guitarist.

The entry has also not been updated since then, as it makes no mention of the membership changes after that point.



** WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows said that he was well aware that the song is actually sung from the POV of music itself… but that doesn't stop Todd from thinking that the song is incredibly egotistical.

* Music/DavidBowie's groundbreaking 'Berlin Trilogy' (comprised of ''Music/{{Low}}'', ''Music/{{Heroes}}'' and ''Music/{{Lodger}}'') is often referred to as being produced by Music/BrianEno. While all parties involved have noted Brian Eno's huge influence on the records, the fact is that the actual ''production'' was down to Tony Visconti (one of Bowie's most frequent and acclaimed producers). Tony Visconti himself has complained about how critics can't seem to be bothered to read sleeve notes which quite clearly state 'Produced by Tony Visconti & David Bowie'.

* A great many weird German songs are attributed to Music/{{Rammstein}} for no better reason than they are simply in German; sometimes songs are attributed to them that are not even German at all. For example, Dutch comedian Frank van der Plas, AKA "Audioplay/OmeHenk", did a parody of Music/{{Aqua}}'s "Barbie Girl" ''in Dutch'' that appears all over the internet as "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ja4Pd3bQ-fA Rammstein Barbie Girl Cover]]". Among the most {{egregious}} offenders is a song called "Juden Hasst" ("Jew Hate"), which is actually the song "Mladshaya Sestrenka" by Russian band Lube and, guess what, doesn't have anything to do with Jews or WW2. They've been slammed as such a great many times, but it just bears repeating: '''Rammstein is not and has never been a pro-Nazi band'''. Quite they opposite: they're anti-authoritarian leftists. Of course, this message never seems to get through to some people. It doesn't help that some enterprising soul set recordings of Adolf Hitler speeches to Rammstein's "Sonne" and uploaded the result to [=P2P=] networks as "Vampire" or "Sieg Heil." The original song is just pure boxer entrance music. See also AllGermansAreNazis and MusicToInvadePolandTo.

* Music/ChrisBrown has been known for his R&B music and singing. After he [[WouldHitAGirl beat the hell out of Rihanna]], news reporters kept referring to him as a [[UnfortunateImplications "rapper"]]. This same thing has happened to plenty of R&B singers, who suddenly become "rappers" in news reports (particularly from outlets that do not have regular music or entertainment writers) when they run into trouble. Other singers that have been erroneously called rappers include [[https://mammothtimes.com/content/rapper-frank-ocean-arrested-marijuana-possession-near-toms-place Frank Ocean]], [[http://www.uniontimes.org/rapper-miguel-gets-sued-for-kicking-a-woman/ Miguel]] and, perhaps most inexplicably [[http://www.contactmusic.net/usher/pictures/4642121 Usher]].

* In a review of a Music/PetShopBoys concert, the reviewer attempted to sound politically correct, identifying two of the dancers as "African-American". The Music/PetShopBoys, and their dancers, are British.

* As if its actual musical credentials weren't already questionable, ''Magazine/RollingStone'' created a bunch of confusion by claiming that Music/{{Outkast}}'s "Hey Ya" was in 11/4, an almost unheard-of time signature for a mainstream pop song. The more plausible interpretation (endorsed by TheOtherWiki and other web sources) is that it's in [[CommonTime 4/4]] with occasional bars in 2/4. ''Rolling Stone'' probably got this wrong by counting the fourths in the verse - giving 22 (4x5+2) and then dividing by two (for no apparent reason).
