This is especially prevalent in bands that are named for one or more of the founding members (Santana, Gladys Knight and the Pips), bands with rotating casts aside from one or two consistent members, or [[TheSmurfettePrinciple bands with one female member]] (even in the rare case where she doesn't sing lead, she'll at least be the ''other'' Face Of The Band simply by virtue of being TheChick). It's also rather fascinating just how often this tends to be a rare human-specific case of WhatMeasureIsANonCute. (Not really ''surprising'', but fascinating.)

* Bad Meets Evil is Music/{{Eminem}} and Royce the 5'9', but most people can only recognize one half of the group. Guess who that person is?
* Try to name anyone from Young Money that isn't Music/LilWayne, Music/{{Drake}}, or Music/NickiMinaj.

is? In fact, more people attribute their songs, and in the case of their biggest hit "Lighters", to guest vocalist Bruno Mars, to Eminem alone than to "Bad Meets Evil".

* Music/ArchEnemy has a odd variation on this with at first the face of the band being Michael Amott (formerly of influential grindcore/melodeath band Carcass) who many saw as the band's only important member. However when female vocalist Angela Gossow joined the band, she became the face of the group and Michael became an afterthought.

When Alissa White-Gluz took over, ''she'' became the face of the group.



* Music/TheAgonist has Alissa White-Gluz (although being voted one of ''Revolver's'' "hottest chicks in metal" might have had something to do with that). She and/or Danny Marino do most of the band's interviews.

* The only member of Metro Station that most people could name is Trace Cyrus, the lead guitarist and ''a'' vocalist. Why? For having a [[Music/MileyCyrus famous sibling]]! Some might also be able to identify the ''actual'' lead vocalist, Mason Musso; even ''that'' is probably because of ''Series/HannahMontana'' (Mason's younger brother Mitchel plays Oliver). However, having a more famous relative completely overshadows his top position in the band. Granted, the band ''does'' owe something to the show, as the two were introduced to one another by their mothers on the set, but good luck finding anyone who can name the members that ''aren't'' directly tied to Creator/{{Disney}}'s cash cow.

In a strange twist, despite Musso being the lead vocalist and Cyrus only being a guitarist and back-up vocalist, the latter completely eclipsed the former in the public eye given how much more famous relative completely overshadows his top position Miley is than Mitchel. Virtually everyone knew that Trace was in the band.band, but only hardcore fans even knew of Mason's presence, let alone the fact that he, not Trace, was the lead singer.

* Music/TheSmiths are, to the wider world, Morrissey, with the possible addition of Johnny Marr, and...two other guys, right? Modern fans might remember Mike for long enough to hate him over the 25%.

** The current bassit, Robert Trujillo, is often just referred to as "that bouncer looking guy". Interestingly enough, the rest of the band are extremely fond of him, and openly refer to him as "the man who saved Metallica", even though the fans, by and large, have no idea who he is. Those familiar with Mike Muir's SuicidalTendencies and InfectiousGrooves, on the other hand...

* Attempted aversion with Tin Machine, which was supposedly a group with four equals... one of whom happened to be DavidBowie. Failed, as the group is now only remembered as a David Bowie folly.

* Sick Puppies is Shimon Moore, Emma Anzai, and, err...the other guy. [[http://kingdom-leaks.com/uploads/gallery/category_3/gallery_6_3_13081.jpg In fact, the band put Emma front and center in the cover of their single "Stick To Your Guns". Shim is over on her right]].

* G-Unit is Music/FiftyCent and a bunch of other guys. Lloyd Banks might get a mention, and also Music/TheGame due to being Fiddy's EvilFormerFriend.
* Music/LilJon & the Eastside Boyz. ''Oh come on!''.

* Music/ModestMouse is generally regarded as Isaac Brock, maybe that guy from TheSmiths who was in it for a while, and the rest.
