* Similarly, Music/FranzFerdinand named themselves after the archduke whose assassination served as a catalyst for WorldWarI.[[note]]Well, they say that they named themselves "Franz Ferdinand" after a racehorse named The Archduke. Either way, they're ultimately named after Franz Ferdinand of Austria.[[/note]] However, surprisingly few people make the assumption that it's a person rather than a band, perhaps because "Franz" sounds like an unlikely name for a Scot and the archduke was a rather famous figure. Which still didn't stop at least one talk show host has asked them which was named Franz Ferdinand. And wasn't joking.

* Music/GaMetal is the name of a musical project ''made by'' a man with the stage name and YouTube account name Jonny Atma. The man is not named [=GaMetal=], and the project is not named Jonny Atma. The fact that Jonny [[ScrewedByTheLawyers had to change his stage name at one point]] doesn't make this any less confusing.

* There is no song by Music/ImogenHeap called "Dear Sister" or "Whatcha Say" (You can thank Jason Derulo for the latter confusion). The name of the song is "Hide and Seek". Also, it's not best to mix up FrouFrou with Imogen's solo songs.

* Music/BillyTalent contains no person named William Talent. They're named after a character from the Canadian ''Film/{{This is Spinal Tap}}'' homage ''HardCoreLogo''.
* In one episode of the American ''{{Whose Line is it Anyway}}?'', Ryan Stiles referred to Kid Rock as a band. After Drew Carey pointed out that he's "[[IAmTheBand just one guy]]", they spent the rest of the episode joking about the mix-up.

* 90's R&B BoyBand Dru Hill. Many people thought lead singer Sisqo was "Dru," but the UsefulNotes/{{Baltimore}}-based band is named after Druid Hill Park, which sounds like "Dru' Hill" in the [[AmericanAccents local accent]].
