* Music/DukeEllington: The first jazz band leader with a serious image, much like a composer of classical music. He inspired Music/CountBasie, Music/TheloniousMonk, Music/MilesDavis, among others.

** In fact, Coldplay themselves are often accused of ripping off Travis and/or {{Radiohead}}. So was {{Music/Muse}}, but they essentially became an alt-prog band after their second record.

** And depending on where you go, you may hear people say that Korn was mostly just following Music/AliceInChains' and FaithNoMore's lead.

** Nirvana also led to the signing of many acts that were underground, but not grunge, such as GreenDay. This occasionally led to ''incredibly'' mainstream-unfriendly acts getting signed (Music/{{Boredoms}}, anyone?). Those acts seldom lasted long on the labels, however, which was probably for the better, as they didn't have to worry about being screwed by the label.

** When Nirvana was the most successful "grunge" act, most PostGrunge bands looked and sounded like them. When Pearl Jam outsold them, you started seeing [[{{Yarling}} yarling]] and bands like Music/{{Creed}} and Days Of The New

* Back in TheEighties, UsefulNotes/{{Europe}} was all about the Music/NewWave, synthpop, hi-NRG, italo disco or whatever other type of dance pop music was popular at the time. Once the German duet Music/ModernTalking started making tracks that were like an eclectic mix of synthpop & italo disco, everyone wanted to follow their style of music, like Bad Boys Blue, C.C. Catch, Blue System (formed by one of the founders of Modern Talking after he quit), etc..

*** In turn, an alternate scene dubbed by the media as the "anti-[[BritneySpears Britney]]" movement made headway after the success of AvrilLavigne, a teenage star who countered the trend of teenage pop performers by [[ThreeChordsAndTheTruth writing (or co-writing) their own material and performing with musical instruments]], adopting a more "rock" image and sound, downplaying the sexualized, slick, choreographed IdolSinger image Britney and her fellow pop stars adopted, and by asserting (or giving the impression of asserting) control of their musical input, often with a feministic "[[GirlsNeedRoleModels Girl Power]]" message attached to it. Artists like MichelleBranch, VanessaCarlton, Skye Sweetnam, and SaraBareilles followed Avril, while DemiLovato and TaylorSwift took strong cues from that scene within more commercial styles. Music/MandyMoore, who began as a Britney-like teen pop starlet (with dyed blonde hair), re-emerged in the movement after her reinvention with her album ''Wild Hope''.

** The success of The Beatles also created something never seen before: a British musical invasion. Every British pop/rock artist who made it big internationally (Music/DavidBowie, Music/EltonJohn, Creator/GeorgeMichael, Music/BlackSabbath, Music/LedZeppelin, Music/DeepPurple, Music/TheSpiceGirls, Music/TheWho, Music/TheKinks, Music/TheYardbirds, Music/TheRollingStones, Music/TheMoodyBlues...) might have never been taken seriously if the Beatles didn't do it before them.

Added DiffLines:

* It's safe to bet that three quarters of electronic/EDM artists (or even artists, period) working and producing today wouldn't be where they were without Music/AphexTwin, hailed as the founding father of contemporary electronic music as a whole, but especially as the father of IDM (intelligent dance music, [[InsistentTerminology although he requests that people use the term "braindance"]]). Besides that, Aphex has even influenced non-electronic musicians like Music/{{Radiohead}}.
