* Finnish AlternativeRock band Music/PoetsOfTheFall have a very devoted following in their native Finland, but have also had surprising levels of success elsewhere. They produced a special BestOfAlbum [[NoExportForYou in India]], have toured a lot in Russia and of course have a North American and European fanbase that know of them from their work on ''VideoGame/MaxPayne2'' and the ''VideoGame/AlanWake'' games.

* Swedish indie pop band [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloudberry_Jam Cloudberry Jam]] never hit it big at home... But enjoy much more popularity in Japan, to the point that a ''GuiltyGear'' character was [[ShoutOut named after them]], Jam Kuradoberi.



* The EurovisionSongContest began in 1956, with some West European countries participating. Today, these countries still participate, but regard the contest as a joke [[labelnote:*]]and an expensive one for the winning country's state broadcaster, which then has to host the contest the following year - Ireland's RTÉ was nearly bankrupted after they won three contests in a row during the 1990s, largely because Eurovison's "must be in the country's native language" rule meant only the UK and Ireland could use English.[[/labelnote]], and send largely unknown artists. The Nordic and East European countries, which joined the contest later, take it seriously, and send their top artists. (see: Music/{{ABBA}}, who had their big break at Eurovision)

** Also quite big in the Philippines. But unlike in other parts of the world, where hard rockers like "Rock You Like a Hurricane" are among their most recognizable, it's exclusively the Scorps' power ballads Filipino fans go for -- "Still Loving You," "Always Somewhere," and "Winds of Change," to name a few.

* American HardRock / BluesRock band Rival Sons are almost completely unheard of back home, but have four Top 5 hits on Canada's rock charts, including two #1s. Also, their albums have charted fairly high in Europe, whereas they never touched the ''Billboard 200'' in the US.

* They might not be as wildly popular as Fifth Harmony in their homeland, but sister group Music/{{Cimorelli}} is largely loved outside the US, despite most of their output being occasional covers on Youtube or 4-track digital [=EPs=] of their original songs. They have already played live in the UK and Spain, but South America, Europe and The Philippines in particular love these girls a bit more or equal to 5H, especially if local magazines, music video channels and radio stations are to be concerned. In America, however, they only get 1 page in any teen magazine every once in a while, and their song "Made in America" is their only song to get airplay on Radio Disney.
