* Music/TalkTalk started out as a typical cheesy, NewWave-y [[TheEighties '80s]] SynthPop band shamelessly ripping off Music/DuranDuran. They grew dramatically over their careers, getting more experimental, culminating in their fantastic final album ''Music/LaughingStock'', which pioneered the genre of post-rock and really showed off what they could do. Unfortunately, they broke up immediately afterwards...

* Polish BlackMetal / DeathMetal band Music/{{Behemoth}} has undergone two points which could be called growing the beard. Their first two albums were well written, but not particularly innovative pure black metal, but with the release of ''Pandemonic Incantations'', drummer Inferno joined the band, and they began to experiment with death metal influences. The next album, ''Satanica'', continued to show improvements, but the beard was fully grown with the release of the acclaimed album ''Demigod'', which featured some of the most intense HarshVocals in death metal. With the release of their latest album, ''[[CrowningMusicOfAwesome Evangelion]]'', it's obvious that it's here to stay.

* While there's no denying the quality of Music/TheKinks' early singles such as [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome "You Really Got Me", "All Day And All Of The Night", and "A Well Respected Man"]], a lot of critics feel that their albums were more or less a mixed bag until Ray Davies found his songwriting niche with 1966's ''Face To Face''.

* Although progressive death metal band BetweenTheBuriedAndMe never had a truly hated album, it's commonly stated that they really start to reach greatness with the album ''Colors''. It's where they started some of the [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly genre mixing]] that is one of their trademarks at this point. ''The Great Misdirect'', which is the follow-up album, is also considered about on par with ''Colors''.

* 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''.
