* When Yoko Ono (who'd had piano lessons from the age of 4) played Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" to John Lennon, he was inspired to write Music/TheBeatles' song "Because". Lennon later claimed that the chords of "Because" are based on the "Moonlight Sonata" played backwards. [[DidNotDoTheBloodyResearch They aren't.]]

** Yet it can be argued that ole Ludwig gave us rock and roll... the last of his piano sonatas feature a very rock and roll-like section. Some performers play it like a dirge. Others nearly light the piano on fire (metaphorically speaking). Those who do make the rock sound come out.

* MoneyDearBoy: The notorious "Wellington's Victory" was hardly his greatest work, but Beethoven took the commission knowing the martial theme would be a popular hit and help pay the bills.

* QualityOverQuantity: Unlike his teacher, [[Music/JosephHaydn Haydn]], who wrote more than a hundred symphonies, and the person who he wanted to study under, [[Music/WolfgangAmadeusMozart Mozart]], who wrote a few dozen, good ol' Ludwig only wrote a symphony when he was inspired to, and, in effect, only wrote nine. Most musical historians say that his symphonies were also the pinnacle of western music.

* ''Series/KamenRiderGhost'' features Beethoven as one of fifteen main Eyecons, based on fifteen different historical people. Assuming Beethoven Damashii, Takeru/Ghost can create energy constructs of musical notes through sound and use them in a manner similar to how a conductor controls an orchestra via hand gestures.
