** Curb so badly mismanaged The Clark Family Experience (who had a minor hit in 2000 with "Meanwhile Back at the Ranch") that the band ended up owing $800,000 to Curb, blaming mismanagement and bad contracts on the debt. In return, Curb tried to dismiss the bankruptcies as an attempt to leave the label, and tried to file an injunction to keep the band from recording for any other label, but this was later dropped. The band broke up in 2002 and never recorded again, although three of the members later founded a second band which won the only season of Creator/{{FOX}}'s ''The Next Great American Band'' and appeared on a Music/CarrieUnderwood album cut before disappearing again.

* Defied by Marc Almond and his then manager, Stevo, in the infamous office-trashing incident of 1983. Phonogram planned to promote [[Music/SoftCell Soft Cell's]] latest single by giving away free copies of the duo's breakthrough hit "Tainted Love", but Stevo considered this to be "degrading". Marc agreed with him and the pair (who continued to work together for several years after Soft Cell split, though they have since parted company) expressed their disgust by invading Phonogram's offices, where they smashed gold discs, let off a fire extinguisher and stabbed a set of speakers with scissors. Following this, Phonogram backed down. The episode inspired parts of the video for "Soul Inside", released later the same year.

* Music/{{Alabama}} drummer Mark Herndon revealed that Creator/RCARecords always treated him like a hired hand and not an official member of the band: he rarely played the drum tracks in studio, and the label seemed to keep him around solely because they wanted to pitch Alabama as a quartet. He stopped receiving credit on the albums entirely starting with ''Dancin' on the Boulevard'' in 1997, and was ultimately booted from the band in the early 2000s. [[http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/country/7271744/alabama-drummer-mark-herndon-autobiography According to his autobiography]], he was also banned from the tour bus in 1984 due to complaints about its temperature, was woefully underpaid relative to the other members, and was sued by the other members who said that he was overpaid for merch on their 2003 farewell tour. Lead singer Randy Owen [[http://tasteofcountry.com/alabama-mark-herndon/ even said]] that Owen was never officially a member, and that the label pressured them into keeping him on the album covers.

* ...but Big Machine Records has blatantly manipulated the ''Mediabase'' charts just to get the first three singles from TaylorSwift's ''Speak Now'' album to #1 there (they only got to #2, #3 and #2 on ''Billboard''). This involved playing the song at the right times in the right markets.

* In 1992, {{Music/KMFDM}} recorded an album called ''Apart'', where members Sascha Konietzko and En Esch each wrote and recorded one side of the album separately. Their label, Wax Trax!, rejected En Esch's side for not sounding enough like KMFDM, then sent Sascha back to record more songs: As a result, the finished album, re-titled as ''Money'', barely features En Esch at all and includes remixes of previously released songs intended to pad it to album length. A year later, En Esch produced his solo album ''Cheesy'', which was also released on Wax Trax! and included songs that would have appeared on ''Apart''.
