*** 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.

* 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}}.

* When Music/{{Lifelover}} started releasing experimental albums and doing known performances where vocalist Kim "( )" Carlsson would self harm himself on stage, a lot of bands in the DSBM scene began to follow the band style, even blatantly copying them (Why hello [[http://www.terrorizer.com/terrorizerwordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/vanhelga.jpg Vanhelga]]).

* Music/BillieHoliday: The first female singer to become world famous by singing melancholical songs about unfaithful men, alcohol, drugs and racism. Still copied to this day.

Her album ''Music/LadyInSatin'' paved the way for all albums by female musicians who express their soul in BrutalHonesty, especially those who went through years of drug abuse, such as Music/NinaSimone, Music/JanisJoplin, Music/MarianneFaithfull, Music/AmyWinehouse,...

* Although there's considerable confusion over exactly ''what'' style of music Music/{{Korn}} popularized -- some say RapMetal, but only about 5 songs in the band's entire 8-album career have rap in them -- it's generally agreed that a lot of bands followed their lead. Hence, they made an album called... FollowTheLeader.

* Although there's considerable confusion over exactly ''what'' Music/{{KoRn}} released their SelfTitledAlbum in 1994 to unexpected success. Naturally, many bands looked to replicate that success by copying their style of music Music/{{Korn}} popularized -- some say RapMetal, but only about 5 songs in murky down-tuned guitars, "funky" slap-style bass technique, angsty lyrics, and complete removal of guitar solos. This eventually led to the band's entire 8-album career have rap in them -- it's generally agreed that a lot creation of bands followed their lead. Hence, they made the NuMetal genre. Naturally, [=KoRn=] took note of this and later released an album called... FollowTheLeader.called ''FollowTheLeader'' in [[TakeThat reference to it]].

* Music/ChristinaAguilera's critics like to point out how she seems to be hopelessly behind every trend in pop, the standard 90's pop at the start of her career, the Rnb/Rock/Pop/Jazz second album, the 40's 50's 60's sounds which were popular only 5 years before and Bionic, it's electronic pop sound which happened four years prior never exactly hitting the trend when it's at it's trendiest. "Bionic" was a big blow to her image and her way of working and took the sheen off her for a lot of people.

* Music/JanetJackson could be credited (or blamed) for sowing the seeds of the raunchy {{Stripperific}} R&B dancer types. Starting with Music/{{Aaliyah}} (although she was tame by today's standards) who then paved way for people like Ashanti, Ciara, Music/{{Rihanna}}, Brook Valentine, Mya, Christina Millian, so on, and so on. Some say Adina Howard helped too. Before her some would point to ''Vanity/Appolonia 6''. Making this OlderThanTheyThink.
