* 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]] [[Anime/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.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/FKATwigs fans vs. Music/{{Banks}} fans play both this trope and FriendlyFandoms. While it's easy to find people who like both artists within their fandoms, it really isn't a good idea asking them who's better between the two. Twigs fans accuse Banks of [[TheyCopiedItSoItSucks essentially being a dumbed-down copy of Twigs]], while Banks fans think that [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible Twigs' material can be far too difficult for first-time listeners to understand]].

* Music/MariahCarey fans vs. Music/WhitneyHouston fans. Ironically, Mariah and Whitney were not rivals of each other, especially that they both denied any rumours of a feud between them and that they recorded the hit "When You Believe".

* During TheEighties there was Music/{{Madonna}} vs. Music/JanetJackson vs. Music/PaulaAbdul vs. Jody Watley fans
* Music/NewKidsOnTheBlock vs. New Edition (for obvious reasons)
** Repeated with the Music/BackstreetBoys vs. Music/{{NSYNC}}. In some parts of the internet, the fans still fight over who was better.
*** And 'twas done in ''WesternAnimation/CelebrityDeathmatch''.

* During
the 90's, Music/BackstreetBoys fans vs. Music/{{NSYNC}}. Music/{{NSYNC}} fans got into bitchfights of EPIC proportions. When BSB's 1999 album ''Millenium'' became the fastest-selling album in history, NSYNC fans were determined to beat that record by buying multiple copies of ''No Strings Attached''. In some parts of the internet, the fans still fight over who was better.
*** And 'twas done
better. What made this such a classic rivalry is that the two groups were similar enough to appeal to the same demographic, but different enough that listeners strongly preferred one over the other; Backstreet was more soft rock while NSYNC was more urban. Ironically, the boys were anything ''but'' rivals in ''WesternAnimation/CelebrityDeathmatch''.real life. Not only were they friends, but they were signed to the same label, had the same management, and worked with many of the same producers. Their "feud" was purely a creation of fans and the media.

** For a while(about 2002-2004), Eminem vs. Music/{{JaRule}}, which was an extension of the fandom rivalry between [[FiftyCent 50 Cent]] and Ja Rule.

Added DiffLines:

** In Australia, some Asian music fans feel radio station and weekly TV show ''SBS [=PopAsia=]'' plays too much K-Pop and should play more Japanese/Chinese/etc music, while K-Pop fans counter that K-Pop is the most popular and requested music (which may be self-perpetuating).

* {{Music/Vocaloid}} and {{Music/UTAU}} fandoms fighting over which one is the best singing voice synthesizer. VOCALOID fans claim that UTAU produces lower quality results, is for "amateurs" and is a nest of poorly-recorded voicebanks and bad (when not [[TheyCopiedItSoItSucks outright plagiarized]]) avatars. UTAU fans, in turn, claim that VOCALOID sounds flat and robotic, that the amateur recordings provide more expressive and flexible results, and that UTAU is an overall better option due to the variety, price (the software itself is free), and the possibility of making your own vocals. Of course, many people still appreciate and use both.

* Skyhooks vs Sherbert - as the two biggest Australian pop bands of the 70s, it's natural that there would be some sort of fandom rivalry, although it's questionable how much was genuine and how much was the media beating things up and egging fans on.

* Music/LCDSoundsystem vs. Death from Above 1979. This rivalry started because DFA Records (full name Death from Above Records), the label of LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy, forced Death from Above 1979 (which had Death from Above as its name) to change its name. This battle can be defined as a draw, a result influenced by the fact that exist fans of both LCD Soundsystem and Death from Above 1979 and also by the SongAssociation: both bands appeared in the soundtracks of ''ProjectGothamRacing 3'' and ''SaintsRow2''.
