** Taylor's fans doesn't get along with Music/KanyeWest fans, for obvious reasons. You would have thought this rivalry would have ended in 2015 when they made up, but it is still going on thanks to West's unhealthy, continuing obsession with Swift, especially with the song Famous (and the music video) which upset her fans.

* Old school Music/{{emo}} (Rites of Spring, Moss Icon, etc.) fans vs. new "emo" fans. The new emo fans had an advantage, what with getting mainstream coverage and VASTLY outnumbering old school emo fans (and probably listening to music released in the [[TurnOfTheMillenium same decade]] ). Then the new emo fad ended.

* Music/{{Korn}} fans vs. Music/{{Deftones}} fans. This one has a lot of history behind it. They're the two most influential bands in the NuMetal genre, with the former being the TropeMaker while the latter places a comfortable second. However, while Korn continued their style throughout their entire career, Deftones became artsier and more experimental from their third album onward while essentially abandoning the genre they pioneered. What really set it off however was when Deftones frontman Chino Moreno [[TakeThat infamously dissed]] Korn frontman Jonathan Davis in an interview, and it caused a bit of a feud between them. However, the two have a long history as friends, even recording a song together ([[CoverVersion a cover]] of "[[Music/IceCube Wicked]]"), and have toured with each other in the past. They since patched things up and remained friends, but it's not uncommon for fans to insult the other's band and get into flame wars. That said, there's a [[FriendlyFandoms good number of people who enjoy both bands]].

** And that's not even getting into subgenre wars. It's not at all hard to find fans of most every sub-genre who have a beef with every ''other'' sub-genre simultaneously (for example, Brutal Death Metal fans who think MelodicDeathMetal is [[ItsPopularSoItSucks too close to the mainstream]] be a legitimate sub-genre, while Melodeath fans tend to think Brutal fans are too obsessed with their bands sounding as abrasive as possible to actually care about the musicianship). About the only thing most other Death Metal fans will agree on is that Slam and Deathcore are sewage genres full of idiot [[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy wiggers]] and whiny {{Emo Teen}}s. Slam and Deathcore fans, for their part, hate the rest of the death metal community due to that attitude.

* Music/YokoKanno vs. Music/YukiKajiura, both among the most acclaimed composers for Japanese anime and Japanese films and both have their dedicated followers. Kanno fans argue a vast and versatile style and a [[Anime/CowboyBebop strong]] [[WolfsRain work]] [[VisionOfEscaflowne resume]] of [[Anime/GhostInTheShell shows]] is what makes Kanno a great composer, while Kajiura's iconic style and hit-and-miss history of [[Franchise/DotHack not]]-so-[[Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle great]]-[[Manga/ElementalGelade shows]] makes her a weak composer. On the flip side some fans who love Kajiura's savvy style will tell you Kanno is nothing more than a plagiarist.

* Music/MarilynManson and The Spooky Kids fans vs. Marilyn Manson fans vs. fans of certain eras. And you have the ones that just want Manson to make more albums like ''Music/AntichristSuperstar''. Daisy Berkowitz himself, the epicenter for the Spooky Kids vs. Manson fight, is much more relaxed on the subject, since it's 20 years old now. Manson doesn't talk about it at all. The main fan forum before Provider Module, which was The Heriophant, had to be shut down due to Cease and Decist orders because of the multitude of hate and death threats being posted against Manson for his changing style and look. This was the fan forum. Oddly enough, there's not much fighting between NineInchNails fans and Manson fans, although Trent and Manson still bitch about each other occasionally. [[YokoOhNo Dita Von Teese and Evan Rachel-Wood are hated in part of the fandom due to the ex thing]]. And Motionless in White is the most hated of all by all the fans, as well as by longtime allies, the Rammstein fans.

** Whilst the bands both have considerable shared fans, there is something of a rivalry between FaithNoMore fans and MrBungle fans. MrBungle fans often say MrBungle's progressive structures and [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly genre mixing]] represents the true genius of Mike Patton, and that FaithNoMore are a dumbed down poppy equivalent. Conversely, there are FaithNoMore fans who say that MrBungle's frequent switching of genres in song is a gimmick that hides the fact they can't write complete songs, and feel that Faith No More's songwriting is catchier and more focused in comparison. Fans of both do tend to like the album "King For A Day, Fool For A Lifetime", since it features MrBungle's Trey Spruance on guitar and features the most varied selection of genres the band produced.
** In the FaithNoMore fanbase there are MikePatton vs Chuck Mosley fans. Most people who like Chuck like Patton too, but a lot of people who like Patton tend to talk about how much Chuck sucks. This is not the only fanbase where something like this is the case though, many IronMaiden fans who like Paul Di'Anno are frustrated by the BruceDickinson fans who post how much better Bruce is on every Youtube video of a Paul era song.
