* ''Series/{{CSI}}'' episode "Targets of Obsession." Many non-CSI fans tuned in just to see Music/JustinBieber get killed. The DistaffCounterpart, "Turn, Turn, Turn," did the same with TaylorSwift.

* Featured spots in popular music (i.e. "Song X" by Alice feat. Bob) exploit this. You take a popular or respected artistand put them on a lesser known or just slightly less popular artist's song ([[WolverinePublicity they might be appearing on every song that summer actually]]) either dropping a verse or just doing the hook. What'll happen is people completely ignore the rest of the song (unless they happen to enjoy the other rapper or they turn out to be really good) and just skip to the guest portions.

* This happens a lot in rap music. You take a popular or respected rapper and put them on a lesser known or just slightly less popular rapper's song ([[WolverinePublicity they might be appearing on every song that summer actually]]) either dropping a verse or just doing the hook. What'll happen is people completely ignore the rest of the song (unless they happen to enjoy the other rapper or they turn out to be really good) and just skip to the guest portions. Music/MichaelJackson definitely started this - Paul McCartney's ''Say Say Say'' and Rockwell's ''Somebody's Watching Me'' would not have sold nearly as well had he not done guest vocals on them. Rockwell is a special case since he is not known for anything else. The only reason why Jackson sang on The Jacksons' ''Victory'' and one track on 2300 Jackson Street is because his family begged him to use his star power to make them money.

** Let's face it, Mark Ronson's song "Uptown Funk" was a (worldwide) megahit only for featured artist Music/BrunoMars. A lot of people outside of the U.K. aren't even aware that [[DirectorDisplacement it isn't a Bruno Mars song]].
** "Bang Bang" by Music/JessieJ, Music/ArianaGrande, and Music/NickiMinaj was only a hit in America because of the latter two artists.

* In the early years, many played ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' just to see the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' and/or Creator/{{Disney}} characters, particularly the latter, which was more heavily emphasized in-game and in advertising. It didn't take long for this to be completely reversed; these days, many people only care about the OriginalGeneration and how their story unfolds (in particular, many players are only in it for [[DracoInLeatherPants Organization XIII]]). While the ''Final Fantasy'' characters retain some popularity, you'd be hard-pressed to find a member of the {{Fandom}} who even remotely cares about the Disney content that's not Mickey and the gang, which, true to the spirit of the trope, makes up the bulk of each game's running time and tends to be the most-advertised feature.

While Mickey's role in the story has been greatly expanded, and the series has an overall tone that's heavily influenced by Disney, the rest of the Disney content has been relegated to being interesting background and side elements at best.

* Many people watch ''Series/AmericanIdol'' in the beginning just to see the horrible no talent singers make fools of themselves on national television and seeing the judges (especially [[MeanBrit Simon Cowell]] mock them). Everything else after that is just a waste of time.

The similar ''Series/AmericasGotTalent'' also attracts viewers just for the ridiculous things people will do for a million dollars, though a few do end up being CrazyEnoughToWork.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/BlackboardJungle'', released in 1955, is remembered (among other things) as the film that launched the Rock and Roll Era thanks to the use of Bill Haley's "Rock Around the Clock" as the theme song. Stories are legion of teenagers flocking to see the movie specifically to hear the song, with little interest in the rest of the picture.
* ''Film/LoveMeTender'': No one cared that it was just a modest Civil War-era western. They just went to see Creator/ElvisPresley on screen. Arguably, this trope applies to every one of Elvis' movies, to the point where the plots and other aspects of the production were pretty much irrelevant.

* Before digitally distributed music (ie. [=iTunes=]), people bought whole albums for a single song, even if the 45 were available. This was especially true of cassettes. Unless the song was at the very beginning of the tape, people would have to patiently wait through other songs til they got to the track they wanted. {{Greatest Hits Albums}} were made for this reason, as the were comprised of only the most well-known songs without all the AlbumFiller.
