* Music/FiveFingerDeathPunch has one with the female-fronted Music/InThisMoment. Both are groovy alt-metal bands with hard-hitting yet radio friendly sounds, frequently subject to NarmCharm with how over-the-top their music is, and have received a very [[LoveItOrHateIt divisive]] reception by metalheads. Fittingly. they've toured together and frontwoman Maria Brink appeared in their song "Anywhere But Here".

** The convergence between men's and women's basketball, at least in the U.S., is NewerThanTheyThink.

A fifth (North Carolina Courage) is run by a team in the second-level United Soccer League (North Carolina FC).[[/note]] In still others, the women's club is technically independent, but has agreements to use the facilities and (often) trademarks of the men's club.[[note]]A current example is [[UsefulNotes/EnglishPremierLeague Arsenal]] in England; a past example in the States was FC Kansas City (linked with MLS team Sporting Kansas City), which folded after the 2017 season.[[/note]]
