* Some sources have claimed that Navin Harris sang backing vocals on Olivia Newton-John's songs "Let Me Be There" and "If You Love Me (Let Me Know)". This "fact" stemmed from a piece of vandalism on {{Wikipedia}} that went unnoticed for two years. Mike Sammes was the actual backing vocalist.

** CBS News' insulting headline: "[[{{Vocaloid}} Hatsune Miku:]] [[http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-205_162-57547707/hatsune-miku-the-worlds-fakest-pop-star The world's fakest (sic) pop star.]]" Fans everywhere were ''not'' pleased, decrying the shoddy research and furthering the "[[NewMediaAreEvil creepy Japanese thing]]'' stereotype.

* 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'''. This isn't helped by the fact 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.

* A 1967 article about groupies in the early rock magazine ''Cheetah'' included a section set at the house of Micky Dolenz of TheMonkees describing him practicing ("flailing away") on his drums by playing along with [[Music/TheBeatles a Beatles album]]. "Even though it is a fairly slow song, he can't...quite...keep the beat." Disgraceful! Except, the "fairly slow song" was "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", which has verse and chorus in different tempos and some sophisticated cymbal work. Not to mention that Ringo Starr had the benefit of multiple takes and overdubbing to perfect his part in the studio.

Added DiffLines:

** Another line in the song asks "Who's the other guy singing in Music/VanHalen?" referring to Sammy Hagar...who joined the band ''in'' 1985.

* 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.

* 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 charge, later convicted, of murdering his family with {{an axe|ToGrind}}. 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 and they've been told by law enforcement not to leave the state." In truth, David Brom had likely never even heard of "Christianity Is Stupid"[[note]]Friends and family noted that David had often argued with his parents about religion and music, so Negativland simply said they'd been arguing about "Christianity is Stupid" on the fatal night.[[/note]], but within months the story was in newspapers across the country, and was even made into a special report by Hal Eisner on San Francisco's KPIX-TV. 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 repeated on nationwide television, radio, newspapers and magazines with absolutely no fact-checking or research[[note]]they may even have been called by a reporter trying to get a statement for ''Rolling Stone''[[/note]]; [[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]]''.

** In the Music/SonicYouth entry, it's mentioned that Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore divorced in the early 2000s (Gordon and Moore split in 2011, but when the book was published, they had been married for over 20 years. The indie rock couple that divorced in the early 2000s was Robert Schneider and Hilarie Sidney of Music/TheApplesInStereo)
** The sentence "The Music/NineInchNails won a Grammy for their cover of Music/JohnnyCash's classic song 'Hurt'". ''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, which probably hasn't been helped by the fact that Trent Reznor said this about Cash's version: "I pop the video in, and wow... 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. [Somehow] that winds up reinterpreted by a music legend from a radically different era/genre and still retains sincerity and meaning different, but every bit as pure." Nine Inch Nails never received a Grammy for the song either.
