* Allmusic's biography of Music/DaYoopers claims that Jerry Coffey and Dave "Doc" Bradbury joined as bassist and percussionist, respectively, on their 1987 album ''Camp Fever''. While it was their first album to feature Jerry Coffey, ''he'' was the percussionist. Joe [=DeLongchamp=] (who is not mentioned on Allmusic's article at all) played bass on that and ''Yoop It Up'', with Bradbury replacing him for ''Yoopy Do Wah'' in 1991. The article also makes no mention of the membership changes after Jim Bellmore replaced Joe Potila as lead guitarist/main songwriter in 1995 (specifically, Dan Collins joined as rhythm guitarist and Bradbury quit, so Jim played both guitar and bass on ''We're Still Rockin''' that year). The entry has also not been updated since then, as it makes no mention of the membership changes after that point (such as Reggie Lusardi and Bobby Symons joining as touring bassist and drummer respectively, the latter freeing up existing drummer Jim [=DeCaire=] for a more frontman role, followed by the departure of both Collins and Coffey at the TurnOfTheMillennium).

* A karaoke "Tribute to Music/TimMcGraw" album includes karaoke renditions of some of Tim's biggest hits... and for some reason, "Lot of Leavin' Left to Do", which is actually by Music/DierksBentley. The latter song is nowhere close to [=McGraw's=] SignatureStyle (if anything, it sounds like an homage to Music/WaylonJennings), leaving one to wonder just how one could so blatantly mis-attribute the song.

* Allmusic's biography for the country band [[http://allmusic.com/artist/blackhawk-p44752/biography Blackhawk]] says that their debut single "Goodbye Says It All" went to number one; it actually went to number 11, and the band never had a number-one hit on Billboard. The biography also says that the fourth single was "Wherever You Go" at number 10. While the fourth single did go to number 10, it was titled "Down in Flames", and it's not like there's any RefrainFromAssuming issue that could have anyone possibly think that the song was called "Wherever You Go" — apparently the writer somehow got it crossed with Music/ClintBlack's "Wherever You Go", released around the same time. Strangely, the biography also fails to mention the album's last single, "That's Just About Right", which peaked at number 7 and is one of their most famous songs.
** Similarly, their biography for [[http://allmusic.com/artist/pirates-of-the-mississippi-p1768/biography Pirates of the Mississippi]] says that their debut album tanked, and that their second album was more successful with the hits "Feed Jake" and "Speak of the Devil". These songs were actually the third and fourth singles, respectively, from their most successful ''first'' album. They do correctly identify "Fighting for You" as a dud single from the (unsuccessful) second album, but make no mention of the far more successful "Til I'm Holding You Again" (their second biggest chart hit). You'd think they would be able to avoid mistakes like this, particularly since Allmusic also includes track listings and chart positions for most albums in their reviews...

* [[https://music.avclub.com/did-1997-contain-the-worst-two-weeks-in-music-history-1798265017 This]] piece from Website/AVClub, in bashing "Fly" by Music/SugarRay, described it as "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reggaeton reggaeton]]". Many commenters pointed out that ''reggaeton'' was still in its infancy as a genre in 1997, is mainly sung in Spanish, and "Fly" doesn't even sound remotely close to ''reggaeton''. Yes, certain mixes of the song featured Jamaican DJ Super Cat toasting during the chorus, but {{Reggae}} and ''reggaeton'' are not the same thing. Even assuming that the writers confused ''reggaeton'' for ''dancehall'' or ''ragga'' doesn't help, because "Fly" doesn't really sound like those {{Reggae}} subgenres either.

* When the "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bro-country bro-country]]" trend of TheNewTens, codified by Music/FloridaGeorgiaLine's "Cruise", began to infiltrate CountryMusic, this trope came up a few times. Even though "bro-country" is an informal and loosely defined derogatory name for a specific type of country music, it is characterized by shallow sexualized lyrics about women and partying, and rap/hard rock influences. Many critics inexplicably lumped "Redneck Crazy" by Tyler Farr into the "bro-country" label, even though it's actually a downbeat song about stalking an ex-lover, with no sexuality or hip-hop influence whatsoever. Likely, people just assumed that a song with "Redneck" in the title and lyrics referencing beer and trucks had to automatically be a jacked-up "party in the woods" tune...

** Breaking news: Chris Brown has decided to take a page from [[Webcomic/{{Sonichu}} Chris-chan]] and try to regain his fame and attract girls with a special medallion close to his heart. No, it's not an OC, but a Franchise/{{Kirby}} medallion. [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1300633/Chris-Brown-desperately-seeks-attention-pink-cat-necklace.html This is the Daily Mail's article on it]]. Apparently, Kirby is a cat Pokémon. The confusion is slightly understandable to a layperson: Kirby, for all intents and purposes, looks like he could be a Pokémon and is owned by Nintendo. So a connection was made by the dimwitted writers. But a cat? In the medallion, he's holding up his arms, which to a stupid person glancing at the picture, looks like cat ears. Sort of kinda not really.
