** How come you can buy all of Music/TheBeatles' music, but not the videos for songs like "Strawberry Fields Forever"? Because Apple Corps, the corporation that manages Music/TheBeatles' copyrighted materials, is slow and inefficient and has strange priorities when it comes to group productions. For instance, before the 9/9/2009 remasters of the band's discography, most Beatles songs (the exceptions being the ones present on the ''1'' compilation) had not been properly remastered since 1987.
*** Strangely, Apple Corps has posted 30 second clips of the remastered music videos (they're on [[http://www.youtube.com/user/thebeatles/videos this channel]] if you want to see them) but can't be bothered to release most of the full videos.
*** ''Film/LetItBe'' is an especially annoying case. It was last legally released in 1991 (VHS and laserdisc). If it is released again, it will likely not be the same edit as was first aired in theaters. And, geniuses that Apple Corps are, they released the remix tie-in to the film, ''Let It Be... Naked'', teased us to think the film would be coming out shortly, but didn't actually release it! (It was available for some time on Netflix, though.)
*** The video for "Hey Bulldog" has been put on iTunes. The others aren't so lucky (yet).

* Music/{{Morrissey}}'s 2014 album ''World Peace is None of Your Business'' was pulled from sale after three weeks following a disagreement between the famously opinionated singer and his record label at the time. The album was removed from all digital sales and streaming sites at the same time. While copies of the album aren't impossible to find, the album hasn't been re-printed from its original worldwide run. Morrissey promised fans that he'd find a new home for it before the end of 2014, but that didn't happen. As of 2017, a re-release has yet to materialize.

* Music/DexysMidnightRunners had three albums released in their original formation years. ''Searching For Young Soul Brothers'' and ''Too-Rye-Aye'' are regularly reissued and listened to by fans. Their final album, ''Don't Stand Me Down'', however, was a commercial and critical failure, and has thus failed to have any successful print runs on CD. Throughout the 80s and 90s, nobody seemed to really care. However as the band quickly got VindicatedByHistory people heard some of the songs on YouTube and were drooling over how great the album really sounded. The album runs for about $119 minimum on Amazon and that just seems to be for the Vinyl version. The [=CDs=] are somehow even ''more'' expensive despite them being more recent. The album isn't even available on iTunes and critical opinion of the album has vastly improved, with it now being named one of the band's shining moments.

* Wild Man Fischer's debut album, "An Evening With s Man Fischer" is one of the earliest OutsiderMusic albums and by far his most popular album. That said, after its release in 1968 it was not rereleased on LP or CD for over 40 years. The reason for this is that the album's producer, Music/FrankZappa, had a falling out with Fischer after the mentally insane musician threw a bottle at Zappa's infant daughter. Luckily he missed, but this angered Zappa so much that he ordered Fischer to get out and vowed to never re-release the album again. From that moment on Fischer basically became an UnPerson to Zappa. He never referred to him again in public and never gave singles from the album airplay whenever he was a guest DJ during radio shows. Fischer arguably made things worse by claiming that Zappa had exploited him and blamed him for the fact that this album didn't become a commercial bestseller. Zappa died in 1993, Fischer in 2011, with "An Evening With Wild Man Fischer" still unavailable. Bootlegs and old copies however are treasured cult objects.

* ''VideoGame/ChildOfLight'''s OST does not include the second boss (Elemental Serpent and Umbra's daughters) or third mook (Flooded Lands and Cynbel Sea) battle themes, and for some reason omits the awesome OminousLatinChanting from "Metal Gleamed in the Twilight" and "Hymn Of Light".

* ''VideoGame/PN03'' never had an official OST release, and the one widely available soundtrack rip is missing the Mission 9 EscapeSequence music, which is [[WastedSong difficult to hear in-game]] due to the blaring klaxons.

* There is one known copy of the album ''Around The World'' by Swedish bubblegum band Cosmo4 in existence, in the hands of a music blog owner who reviewed the album. Not even the members of the band have any idea how on Earth he got it, nor do they have copies of the tracks. The record label announced the album's release back in 2007, constantly delayed it until December 2009, and its supposed December 2009 release date came and went without another word. The songs "Peek-A-Boo", "What's Your Name", "Mexico", and "Adios Amigos" are fairly easy to acquire due to receiving official single releases. Other songs are harder to come by, but they're out there if you look hard enough - they're mostly available on Thai bootleg compilations. Two songs, however, "I Think We're Alone Now" and "What's Not To Like", remain non-existent.
