** Similarly, many writers give John's death date as late in November (possibly confusing it with JFK's death date of November 22nd). It was December 8th.

** In a case of MisattributedSong, there's a strange misconception in some corners of the Internet, shared by a [[http://www.sing365.com/music/lyric.nsf/Ballroom-Blitz-lyrics-Blue-Oyster-Cult/6F0B4EAD534CAA4648256E6700094C2C surprising number of lyrics archives]], that the BlueOysterCult recorded ''Ballroom Blitz''. The fact that British glam-rockers the ''{{Sweet}}'' recorded this and had the hit single does not stop it being attributed to the BOC. Nor does the fact it was written by another songwriting team [[note]]Chinn and Chapman[[/note]] stop it being credited to Eric Bloom and Donald Roeser. OK, it ''sounds'' like something the BOC might have recorded or at least covered live - but they've never been anywhere near it. Consider the opening lyrics, strange for a band whose members are called Eric, Buck, Allen, Albert and Joey. Mick, Andy and Steve are, in reality, the first names of the Sweet.

** There also seem to be a large number of people who believe that Yankovic's work consists of nothing but straight parodies of popular songs. While this does make up a large chunk of his work, he has never been a parodies-only artist, and in fact, even many of his parodies have parodied musical styles or approaches of some artists, rather than songs themselves. For Example "I'll Sue Ya" is a parody of Music/RageAgainstTheMachine's ''style'' but not on one particular RATM song. Ditto "Germs" being a parody of Music/NineInchNail's style rather than (as people assume) being a direct parody of "Closer" or "Terrible Lie." "Don't Download This Song" is a parody of benefit songs like "We Are The World" and pokes fun at the recent hysteria of people being arrested for even so much as ''listening'' to a pirated song. Also, not all the songs he parodies are modern pop. The most prominent example is "Jurassic Park", which is about the popular film, but is set to the tune of "[=MacArthur=] Park".

* The Partners in Kryme performed a ThemeTuneRap for the first ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' movie. Apparently they were not familiar with the franchise, because their song labeled Raphael as the leader of the Turtles, when everyone who's so much as heard the theme song knows that position is actually Leonardo's.

** 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 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 Pokemon. The confusion is slightly understandable to a layperson: Kirby, for all intents and purposes, looks like he could be a Pokemon 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.

* As if its actual musical credentials weren't already questionable, ''Magazine/RollingStone'' created a bunch of confusion by claiming that 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).

* The artist that appears to suffer from this trope most consistently is Music/WeirdAlYankovic. A huge amount of humourous music, especially music available for download on [=P2P=] services, is misattributed to him. This is something of a sore spot with the artist. He has gone on record saying that he doesn't mind people sharing his music; but strongly dislikes the misattribution, mainly due to the lyrical content. Although a frequent user of DoubleEntendre, he still makes an effort to keep his work family-friendly. Interestingly, the majority of the mislabled songs are the work of another, almost as well-known, parody musician, Bob Rivers and his Twisted Radio show. Rivers' work is decidedly less family-friendly than Weird Al's, and often includes profanity and sexual references.

*** Also, there are a number of people who believe "You Don't Love Me Anymore" is a parody of Extreme's "More than Words". The ''video'' is a parody of the video for said song, but the songs themselves are nothing alike.

** A passing mention that the band Music/CamperVanBeethoven had recorded a cover of "Music/PinkFloyd's classic "[[Music/LedZeppelin Stairway to Heaven]]". The passage refers to the band's "Stairway To Heavan (Sic)", but it seems that the author didn't even listen to or look up the copyright information on that song - its an original instrumental that isn't even a cover of the Led Zeppelin song they incorrectly attribute to the Floyd.

** There was a mention that Dischord Records was founded in 1970 (ten years before it actually was) that can be attributed as a typo, but listing Music/NeutralMilkHotel's ''In The Aeroplane Over The Sea'' as being released in 2003 rather than 1998 has no excuse.

** The sentence "The Music/NineInchNails won a Grammy for their cover of Music/JohnnyCash's classic song 'Hurt'". It was their song to begin with, ''Cash's'' version was the cover. Of course, since the release of Cash's cover in 2002, [[CoveredUp this has been an]] [[NewerThanTheyThink astonishingly common mistake]] by media types. Nine Inch Nails never received a Grammy for the song either.

Tears welling, silence, goose-bumps... Wow. [I felt like] [[BetterThanCanon I just lost my girlfriend, because that song isn't mine anymore]]... It really made me think about how powerful music is as a medium and art form. I wrote some words and music in my bedroom as a way of staying sane, about a bleak and desperate place I was in, totally isolated and alone.

* Sound collage group Music/{{Negativland}} pulled off a media stunt, effectively lampshading this trope. The Bay Area band self-released a falsified news article based around the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Brom David Brom]] murders, in which the 16 year old boy was convicted of murdering his family with {{an axe|to grind}}. Negativland released a report that stated, in essence, "Negativland has been forced to cancel a planned tour because their song 'Christianity Is Stupid' is suspected of being a catalyst in inspiring the David Brom murders." In truth, David Brom had likely never even heard of "Christianity Is Stupid", but within months the story was in newspapers across the country, and was even made into a special report on a Californian news station. They were forced to cancel their tour for external reasons: They simply could not allocate the money necessary to provide for a full tour. This "report" was spread with absolutely no fact-checking or research; [[https://thedailywrazz.wordpress.com/tag/joe-brom/ The entire debacle]] can be promptly heard in an odd, documented form on a Negativland album, ''[[https://www.youtube.com/user/helterstupid Helter Stupid]]''.
