* MitchBenn's "Everything Sounds Like Music/{{Coldplay}} Now" satirises the fact that, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin everything sounds like Coldplay now]]. Whether he was aware that two of the bands that he name-checks in the song [[OlderThanTheyThink did it first]] is unknown. Either way, the song is hilarious.

*** In turn, an alternate scene dubbed by the media as the "anti-[[Music/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 "Girl Power" message attached to it. Artists like Music/MichelleBranch, Music/VanessaCarlton, Skye Sweetnam, and Music/SaraBareilles followed Avril, while Music/DemiLovato and Music/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), even tried to re-emerge in the movement after her reinvention with her album ''Wild Hope''.

Added DiffLines:

* Ever since Ed Sheeran's success countless other English folk singers like James Bay, James Arthur, Passenger, George Ezra and even Niall Horan (despite being Irish) have started popping up on the American charts.

* Another trend that begin at the turn of the millenium. The "Latin Boom." It started with Ricky Martin and Jennifer Lopez, and then there was a long string of people singing in both English and Spanish (Shakira, Marc Anthony, Thalia, Paulina Rubio). Even Music/ChristinaAguilera got in on the game.

* Though Music/NewEdition actually came first, the BoyBand craze of the nineties was actually started by NewKidsOnTheBlock in the late 1980s. These pre-fab moneymakers seemed to be "built" from a mix of stereotypes: one or two pretty boys; a rebel with tattoos (rehab optional); the crazy one who gave the really funny quotes in the interviews; one who could actually sing, but looked funny; the sweet, down-to-earth one; and the schmoe. For the most part, good looks and flashy dance moves were a bigger priority than actual musical ability. PopCultureIsolation is also likely why NKOTB is known for starting the Boy Band craze as opposed to New Edition (not to mention NKOTB had a wide appeal in contrast to New Edition's mostly-black audience), even though their music was hardly different.

* 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.
