* UrbanLegend: The story of Beethoven defacing the title page of the "Eroica" in a rage over Napoleon often gets exaggerated in the retelling. Contrary to some accounts, Beethoven did not rip the score in half, stomp on it, or throw it in the fire; he did however cross out Bonaparte's name so violently that the pen ripped through the page. (It can be seen [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/09/Eroica_Beethoven_title.jpg here]].)

* Music/ChuckBerry titled "Roll Over Beethoven" after him, considering he could roll over in his grave if he heard rock and roll. Chance is good that you only know the [[CoveredUp cover version]] by the [[Music/ElectricLightOrchestra E.L.O.]]

** His Fifth Symphony. During UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, the first measure was an Allied {{Leitmotif}}, its four notes matching the MorseCode for "V" (for Victory). And the irony of using Germany's greatest composer against the Germans.

* OrchestralBombing: Much of his music, especially the symphonies, has a grand and heroic sound that works very well for this trope.

** ''Wellington's Victory'' plays it quite literally with a battery of percussion instruments and other effects meant to simulate the sound of a battlefield. The score actually calls for live cannon and musket fire.

* BrokenPedestal: The third symphony which he dedicated to Napoleon, because he thought that he represented all the good ideals of the French Revolution. When he got the news that Napoleon declared himsel emperor, he destroyed the first page of his work.

Then he started to [[DeafComposer go deaf]], and everything changed. He began to compose dramatic, emotional works on a scale far larger than anything most musicians had worked on before. These would eventually lay the foundation for the Romantic Era of music.

German Composer (c. 17 December 1770 - 26 March 1827) of ClassicalMusic, generally considered one of the most talented and influential of all time.

Born in UsefulNotes/{{Bonn}} to a family of Flemish origin (that's why it's ''van'' Beethoven, not ''von'', and he's not a nobleman--Dutch "van" is no indication of nobility), he moved to Vienna in the 1790s, at first attracting attention for his virtuoso piano performances. His earlier compositions were accomplished but derivative pieces (on the surface, at least) in the Classical Era style of Music/JosephHaydn and [[Music/WolfgangAmadeusMozart Mozart]].
