* This attitude ''pervades'' the ''Website/FurAffinity'' forums, as well as the site itself. Mention any popular trend in the ''UsefulNotes/FurryFandom'' and you'll have at ''least'' three responses on why it sucks or is a stupid trend. Mention any popular TV show or anime, and for every response praising the show, you'll see at least three trashing it. Mention artstyles, and, if it's popular, will immediately be decried by the fanbase. The ''Video Games'' forum is also ''exactly'' this trope through and through. Mention ''any'' game that is popular, and the responses will consist of trashing it, saying they don't get why it's fun, saying it's overrated, and naming an obscure/retro/independent video game that is "vastly superior" in every way, complete with {{Fan Hater}}s keeping all the fans of ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' and any game from Japan away from the forums.\\

Furries in general tend to react this way to certain fursonas, due to the assumption that people choose them out of a misguided desire to be cool rather than because they really identify with them. This happens most often with wolves, foxes, and ''especially'' dragons.

* This was predicted with the Internet itself around the time US President UsefulNotes/BillClinton was promoting "The Information Superhighway", and Vice-President AlGore was [[BeamMeUpScotty taking credit for inventing it]]. While the boom in online population has greatly increased the quantity and variety of information and interest-sharing, those watching it in progress didn't feel it did any favors for the ''quality''. Whether it's better or worse now that it's popular depends on the virtual neighborhood, but at least the technology permitting access has gotten faster and smoother.

* Nightcore emerged in the early 2000's as a style of speeding up slow techno songs to make them faster and more upbeat. The phenomenon initially had a small fanbase scattered throughout various online communities, but by TheNewTens, it became wildly popular on Website/YouTube, with lots of nightcore channels being created overnight. Nightcore soon became labelled as "lazy", "uncreative", and "oversaturated". As a result, many older listeners stopped following the nightcore scene. It didn't help that many of the new channels strayed from the original happy hardcore sound, even using non-electronic genres such as rock and hip hop.

Added DiffLines:

* The {{Goth}} and [[EmoTeen Emo]] subcultures. Aside from suffering from being TheNewRockAndRoll, after that stigma had passed, these groups are made fun of by outsiders who hate how surprisingly expansive they've become. Goths get targeted for being either perpetually [[TheEeyore sad]]/[[GrumpyBear angry]] or [[ObviouslyEvil openly]] [[AxCrazy psychotic]] (the latter of which stemming from crimes incorrectly attributed to goths). Emos are attacked for having a similar aesthetic, but being infinitely [[{{Wangst}} whinier]]. There's also the stereotype that teenagers turn to these subcultures as a result of teen angst, and that these are just a phase. The fact that stores like Hot Topic specialize in merchandise appealing to these groups doesn't help.
** Hot Topic, in turn, also suffers from this. People who aren't part of the goth or emo subcultures hate how the store promotes them. On the other hand, abiding by this trope, actual goths and emos hate Hot Topic because it became "mainstream"; this resulted in jokes about "mall goths" who are just wannabe "poseurs" who think that just because you shop at Hot Topic, that makes you goth. (Granted, there are probably plenty of cases of this, but not as many as people claim.)

* Music/FooFighters. DaveGrohl has gone on to achieve huge success since the end of Nirvana, now that he's the face of the band and not just the drummer. This has led to a lot of accusations of selling out.

** ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' has become quite notorious for this. Virtually ''anything'' can get this treatment from the GTA community once it gets too popular, be it a car, gun, mask, shirt, you name it, especially in the multiplayer portion of the game. This especially manifests itself on GTA-related forums, resulting in posts/threads that trash fast supercars as overrated and the like.

Hell, even ''GTA V'' itself gets flacked on from fans of earlier GTA games.

* Music/MyChemicalRomance. People have said this about all of their last three albums; ''Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge,'' ''The Black Parade,'' and ''Danger Days.''
** Even before ''Three Cheers'' was put out, when they signed to Reprise. The album didn't even have to be made yet for [[FanDumb people]] to start calling out this trope.
** On the other hand, each album receives a better score among most music critics than the last one. Depending on the magazine/website, ''I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love'' scored between 2.5 and 4 on 5, ''Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge'' scored between 3 and 4 on 5, ''The Black Parade'' between 3 and 5 on 5 and ''Danger Days'' between 3.5 and 5 on 5. Their [[FanDumb fans]] may think they're sellouts, or they changed, but they're mostly having fun with their music style, and critics like it.'
* Although not as bad as most examples, Nate Ruess of Fun. suffered this with his mainstream hits "We Are Young" and "Some Nights", and there was a lot of HypeBacklash against him because of his band being a hit at the 2013 Grammys. Many of the detractors came from fans of his original band, The Format. Most of the hate has died down since.



* {{Paramore}}
** They did a song for the first ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' film and they now have merchandise at Hot Topic, getting them this treatment. Unfortunate considering how talented they actually are.
** The album ''Brand New Eyes'' mostly cured things, with a lot of fans and critics alike considering it their best album. And other than "[[BlackSheepHit The Only Exception]]", it got no mainstream attention at all, so even better.
** And now they have put themselves back in the rut with their fourth SelfTitledAlbum. It was bad enough that they shifted to cheerful, energetic pop rock from their angsty, emo, PopPunk style, but the fact that "Still Into You" and "Ain't it Fun" being pop hits because of that has not been received by their established fans.
