* Music/{{Hawkwind}} (and particularly its writer, vocalist Bob Calvert) never had a problem with their hit single ''Silver Machine'', but a fair bit of ongoing tension arose over Ian "[[Music/{{Motorhead}} Lemmy]]" Kilminster (bass, backing vocal) taking over the lead vocal on account of him having the best voice for that particular song.

They did, however, get peeved with fans loudly screaming for it during gigs, the implication being that this is the only thing the band recorded that was worth listening to. One LP used a live version as a closing track. It begins with Dave Brock sarcastically responding to fans demanding the song - ''Yeah, my mum's got a washing machine!'' and the mix of the track, performed as an encore, gets to the end of ther first verse and chorus - and then there is a massive explosion followed by silence.

* Music/SirMixALot, who wrote "Baby Got Back", has admitted to being incredibly annoyed by the song, as he has re-written it at least 3 times for different shows and has virtually eclipsed the rest of his career.

* Music/SirMixALot, who wrote "Baby Got Back", has admitted to being incredibly annoyed by the song, as he has re-written it at least 3 times for different shows and has virtually eclipsed the rest of his career. He has since embraced the song's ubiquity, probably because [[MoneyDearBoy it still makes him a lot of money]].

* Mark Chesnutt has said that he regrets letting MCA Records pressure him into recording a cover of "[[Music/{{Aerosmith}} I Don't Want to Miss a Thing]]", which wound up being his last big hit.

* Music/VanessaCarlton was sick of only being known for the traveling piano in her music video for "A Thousand Miles", so she had the video for "Nolita Fairytale" start with the piano getting destroyed by a passing taxi.

** He also hated the song "Stigmata", which was one of the band's first popular songs. He got over his dislike for the song after a while, but it was very rarely played live during the band's career.

** He also hated the song "Stigmata", which was one of the band's first popular songs.songs - he considers it too simplistic and claims he wrote it at the last minute because [[AlbumFiller the album was running a bit too short]]. He got over his dislike for the song after a while, but it was very rarely played live during the band's career.

* [[Music/LaRoux La Roux]] has shown regret over the success of her SignatureSong, "Bulletproof". She has said she "wasn't keen on it", and that she "wouldn't want to have a hit like that again", due to the fact that she feels it doesn't have any meaning to her. She also hates the song's SurrealMusicVideo, saying that she wishes she could "erase it".

* Music/{{Blur}}, particularly [[TheQuietOne Graham Coxon]], are not particularly keen on ''The Great Escape'', the album which served as a rival piece to Music/{{Oasis}}' ''Music/WhatsTheStoryMorningGlory''. Damon Albarn said it was 'messy' and one of what he considered to be the only bad albums Blur had done, and 'Country House' became an embarrassment. It probably doesn't help that the album is associated with the Oasis rivalry and the burgeoning 'lad' culture of the time. Perhaps unsurprisingly, they decided to go in a more lo-fi direction for the follow-up, ''Blur''. (That being said, they did play some songs from it at their more recent comeback gigs, including "Country House".)

Added DiffLines:

** Damon Albarn himself has no good things to say of ''Think Tank'', due to [[TroubledProduction how troubled its recording was]], the fact he had to finish it without [[BestFriend Coxon]], and his own meltdown resulting in a six-year hiatus for the band.
** And he has even less good things to say from "No Distance Left to Run", from ''13''. In order to ''make that song'', he had to ''[[CreatorBreakdown come to terms with the end of his relationship with Justine Frischmann]]''.

Added DiffLines:

** On ''The Marshall Mathers LP2'', we have "Headlights", where he admits he came to ''hate'' "Cleaning Out My Closet" (One of his biggest hits off of ''The Eminem Show'', where he constantly jabs and declares ''hatred'' at his mother for his crappy upbringing) after his overdose in 2008. "Headlights" itself is Eminem actually apologizing to his mother for his horrible attitude ''and the song he made to diss her over ten years ago''.

* The Human League's Phillip Oakey hated "Don't You Want Me" at the time of release, relegating it to the last song on the album ''Dare'' for that reason. He was horrified when the label wanted what he thought of as a [[AlbumFiller "poor quality filler track"]] released as a single, thinking it would spell the end of their recent chart successes. He proposed packaging the single with a fold-out poster of the band, not to help promote sales, but because he thought fans would be disappointed in the song but the freebie would help make up for it. Of course, it ended up being their biggest chart hit yet, and their SignatureSong on top of that. He still finds the song overrated in comparison to the rest of the album, and feels it has a MisaimedFandom as a love song (when he intended it as "a nasty song about sexual power politics"). However, he acknowledges it was key to the band's success... and it's still performed nearly every time they play a live set.
