* By the end of 1980, attempts by heavy metal band Music/{{Accept}} at a commercial sound fell flat. As guitarist Wolf Hoffmann put it,
"Maybe we knew that the old approach from the record before didn't work very well. So we were saying 'fuck it, let's just do what we think is right. Let's not try to be somebody else, let's not try to have a radio hit anymore.'" The gambit paid off, and the result was their breakthrough album, appropriately titled ''Breaker'', setting the stage for their success for the next five years.

* Filipino rock band '''Razorback''' was, for the most part, an {{Expy}} of the legendary Juan Dela Cruz Band in their 1995 debut album ''Hebigat Sounds Vol. 1'', thanks to their classic rock-influenced sound. While that was a critical and commercial success, the band would start growing some musical stubble in the second album ''Beggar's Moon'', before growing a full-blown Beard in the third album ''Star'', where the '70s-style backbone were still there, albeit complemented with more contemporary musical influences.

* While ''Music/{{Paranoid}}'' (1970) is Music/BlackSabbath's greatest commercial success, hardcore fans see ''Master Of Reality'' (1971) as where they hit their stride, in-part due to the band achieving a heaviness the likes of which had never been seen at the time, influencing many metal bands in the process. The band would continue their artistic and commercial success, reaching a peak with ''Sabotage'' (1975), and then a DorkAge followed by a ''second'' Beard in 1980 with the arrival of RonnieJamesDio and ''Heaven And Hell''.

* Depending on who you ask, DeepPurple grew the beard either with their self-titled third album, which perfected their brand of psychedelia, or with ''Music/DeepPurpleInRock'', which shifted the band into hard rock territory and brought vocalist Ian Gillan and bassist Roger Glover into the band.

* Music/{{Tool}} had always had a distinct sound. Their first official release was the EP ''Opiate'' in 1992. It was a heavy, rhythm-oriented hard-rock album that gave us the first taste of Tool's heavy-bass sound. Their second album (and first full-length), ''Undertow'', was released in 1996. It was still bass-heavy hard rock, but not quite as heavy, and with a more melody-oriented tone with longer songs on average. By ''Ænima'', they shifted full-blown in to a very distinct, melody-oriented hard rock band. They became more progressive rock oriented with longer songs. Their next three releases (''Salival'', ''Lateralus'' and ''10,000 Days'') were an even further shift, and those three albums sound most similar to each other. While the post-''Ænima'' albums represent their current sound, the album itself is probably where the band had fully grown their beard out.

* With ''Blackout'', Dropkick Murphys moved toward a more melodic, folk-influenced sound, more distinct from the rest of the Boston hardcore scene. This is the album that cracked the American market at large, after years of local fame.
** Their real popularity started when the mainstream heard Dropkick Murphys later on because of ''I'm Shipping Up to Boston'', featured in TheDeparted and now a trope in itself in Boston sports. This popularity had nothing to do with the musicianship beard they had started with ''Blackout''.

* Music/PearlJam's first two albums, ''Music/TenAlbum'' and ''Vs'', were popular with critics and fans, but their third album, ''Vitalogy'', is seen as this, as it's when they started to get more experimental and cerebral.
