This trope also has applied to some other musicians: for example, Music/TupacShakur and [[Music/HidetoMatsumoto hide]] both have rabid fans that insist both are still alive but [[HesJustHiding just]] [[JustForPun hiding]]. On the other hand, check out the story below of the folk rocker, Music/{{Rodriguez}}, with whom this ''actually happened!'' And contrast the "Music/{{Paul|McCartney}} is dead" UsefulNotes/ConspiracyTheories, which are a sort of inversion.

Added DiffLines:

* Played with on an episode of ''Series/{{ALF}}''. A man named Aaron King moves to the neighborhood and ALF is convinced the man is Elvis (he does look a little like him). ALF confronts him later in the episode, and the man manages to prove he isn't Elvis by picking up a guitar and singing very badly.

* In ''Funky Cops'', Aaron King (a NoCelebritiesWereHarmed version of Elvis) faked his death so the press would stop harassing him. His family's in on it and he still lives at their mansion, though.

* ''ComicStrip/TheWorldOfLilyWong'' had played with it by saying that Elvis was alive because he was actually then paramount leader of mainland China, [[UsefulNotes/ToGetRichIsGlorious Deng Xiaoping]]. This turns into a case of FollowTheleader with other dictators claiming to be dead pop stars, like UsefulNotes/MuammarGaddafi being Music/RickyNelson and UsefulNotes/SaddamHussein being Music/MarvinGaye.
