* Music/CannibalCorpse vs. Music/SixFeetUnder.

to:

* Music/CannibalCorpse vs. Music/SixFeetUnder.Music/SixFeetUnder, for the simple reason that the former band's vocalist, Chris Barnes, left it to form SFU. The two bands are also quite different stylistically, with Cannibal Corpse having a more straightforward death metal sound and becoming infamous for their horrific, over-the-top {{Gorn}} imagery and lyrics, and Six Feet Under having a far groovier, Pantera-tinged sound and more socially charged lyrics.
* Music/AskingAlexandria vs. We Are Harlot is a similar scenario, as both bands share their vocalist, Danny Worsnop, but couldn't be any more different musically - Asking Alexandria is a {{metalcore}} band with heavy use of electronic instruments, while We Are Harlot are a GenreThrowback to '80s HardRock and HairMetal. The fact that Worsnop temporarily left AA to focus on We are Harlot only adds more fuel to the fire.

** 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.

** Taylor's fans doesn't do ''not'' 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. The rivalry became even more heated following Taylor's criticism of that same song, leading Kim Kardashian to leak a phone conversation Kanye has had with Taylor where she acutally said she didn't mind of the lyrics targeting her. And then we arrive to the present day, with Kanye fans accusing Taylor of purposely releasing her new album, ''Reputation'', on the anniversary of Kanye's mom's death. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement Yeah, this rivalry isn't stopping anytime soon.]]

* In general, {{Grunge}} fans vs HairMetal fans. According to a sizable group of fans from both genres, you're not allowed to like both -- even though active rock stations typically play both. Although, both groups are in agreement over not liking {{post-grunge}}.

* During the 90's, Music/BackstreetBoys fans vs. 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. 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 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.

*** Similarly, in the 90s, metal fans hated grunge for coming out of nowhere and eclipsing the success of their genre to become the dominant rock subgenre of the 90s, though ironically grunge musicians like Kurt Cobain didn't have anything against metal and even were fans of it (Nirvana's first album is fairly heavy), but only hated ''hair'' metal for being cheesy and lacking substance, which fans of traditional metal would no doubt agree with.



* Music/TupacShakur fans vs. Music/TheNotoriousBIG fans. Which is weird considering how different their music is. One's a Rebellious quasi-political activist, The latter's a new york mafioso. It's like comparing Huey P. Newton to Al Capone.

to:

** The rivalry between the East Coast (eg. NYC) and West Coast (eg. LA) rap scenes is legendary, to the point where people got shot over it. It seems to have quieted down now that several rap legends of the 90s were murdered, showing how petty and dangerous these beefs are.

* [[ThreeChordsAndTheTruth Punk rock/new wave]] versus [[EpicRocking Progressive rock]].

to:

* Post-punk and its cousin Music/NewWave versus progressive rock from the late 70s onward. Prog rock fans hated those genres for bringing back [[ThreeChordsAndTheTruth Punk rock/new wave]] versus simpler]], more radio-friendly song structures while new wave fans disavowed prog for its pretentiousness and [[EpicRocking Progressive rock]].long-winded songwriting.]] Some artists like Music/DavidBowie, Music/{{Yes}} and Music/KingCrimson simply dabbled in both.

* 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.

* 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".

** 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.

** 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).
