* Dionne Farris' "I Know" was a hit single in 1995 (#4 on Hot 100, #1 on Pop radio), but nowadays, the song is not on iTunes (by extension, nor is the remainder of its parent album, "Wild Seed -- Wild Flower", making the whole album nearly impossible to obtain), and the music video is the only thing accounted for on the internet, in several uploads, but not in very high quality. The whole aforementioned album seems to occasionally circulate in several affordable copies on eBay, but that's pretty much your best bet at hearing any of its songs.

* Most of Music/BobSeger's albums prior to 1975 are out of print and may never be released again as long as Seger is still alive, because Seger has made [[OldShame his displeasure to those albums]] well-known. A select handful of those albums, including his debut LP ''Ramblin' Gamblin Man'', ''Smokin' O.P[='=]s'' and ''Mongrel'' have seen limited distribution on CD (and consequently, making those as rare as the original vinyl issues) in the early 90's, but are not as widely available as his post-mid-late 70's career. This means that the original studio version of "Turn the Page" (included in the out-of-print ''Back in '72'') and his anti-Vietnam anthem "2 + 2 = ?" have become valuable rarities. Update: Smokin' O.P.'s has been reissued and remastered on CD in 2005, Ramblin' Gamblin' Man has been reissued on vinyl and can be streamed on Spotify.

* Literally days after releasing their second album ''Pageant'', queercore duo [=PWR BTTM=] were hit with allegations of sexual assault and abuse. The controversy [[OvershadowedByControversy grew so big]], that record label Polyvinyl dropped the band, deleted ''Pageant'' from distribution, and pulled their music from every streaming retailer. If you want to hear their music, you'll ever have to find it via torrents or buy their CDs, which are growing more expensive due to them going out of print.

** His 1996 Christmas single "Grandpa Got Runned Over by a John Deere" was backed by a parody of Music/TimMcGraw's "I Like It, I Love It" called "I Hate It, So Shove It", written about the O.J. Simpson trials. This parody never appeared on an album, and outside a single magazine column, there is almost no evidence that it even exists.



* Creator/{{CMT}} has done a good job archiving most country music artists' videos, but they are by no means complete. Some can be found only on Website/YouTube, while the existence of others is known only through the video listings in back issues of ''Billboard''.
** When exactly the first country music video was produced has been disputed, with several sources making various claims. Country music historian Bill Malone has made the claim with Music/DonWilliams' 1973 single "The Shelter of Your Eyes," while ''Series/HeeHaw'' producer Sam Louvillo has claimed the same for his show, with his videos airing four years earlier. In addition, Music/BuckOwens (who later starred on ''Hee Haw'') has said he was the first to produce a country video, for his 1969 hit "Tall Dark Stranger." And, a video of Glen Campbell's 1969 hit "Galveston" is known to exist. Except for "videos" aired in repeats of ''Hee Haw'' (the show currently reruns on {{RFD}}) the Owens' and Williams' videos have never been aired on TV, at least not since the late 1970s, while "Galveston" has been uploaded to Website/YouTube.
** The videos that aired on ''Hee Haw'' were not true music videos as they are known today, but rather were of cobbled-together footage of rural settings and/or sped-up stop-action films of people dancing and/or acting goofy, and were used more for comedy than serious promotion of the song it was played under. The concept was short-lived, as several prominent country artists expressed their discomfort with their songs becoming little more than an instrument for comedy.

* If it wasn't for Website/YouTube a lot of old school hip-hop videos (and old skool vids in general) would have been lost into the ether. There isn't a VH1 Classic for urban music videos. There was BETJ but they only played a few token old skool vids -- same with Centric. Even then HipHop was ''persona non grata.'' But Website/YouTube was a great source for old school urban music vids....Excluding the whole WMG thing of course.

*** There is an alternate version of the "Fame '90" video that has a substantial number of different clips -- some of which are from ''Film/PrettyWoman'', as the song appeared on its soundtrack as well as his 1990 GreatestHitsAlbum ''Changesbowie''. Created for VH1, this edit does not appear on compilations but has turned up on VH1 Classic.

* After Music/{{Aaliyah}}'s tragic death in a plane crash in 2001, her albums except for her first one are near impossible to obtain legally except through illegal downloads, or as used CDs. This is because her uncle and head of her record label controls the rights to her music except for her first album. After she died, he subsequently just let her music go out of print and refuses to release or allow online access to it. Unfortunately, as a side effect from her death, he refuses to release ''any'' music at all on the label, stranding its artists and producers in DevelopmentHell, forcing them to sue him to release them from their contracts.
