* No, "Da Dip" isn't by 2 Live Crew or 69 Boyz, and it also isn't called "When I Dip" either. It is in fact by a little-known Atlanta rapper named Freak Nasty.

* There's a strange misconception in some corners of the internet, shared by a [[http://www.sing365.com/music/lyric.nsf/Ballroom-Blitz-lyrics-Blue-Oyster-Cult/6F0B4EAD534CAA4648256E6700094C2C surprising number of lyrics archives]], that the Music/BlueOysterCult recorded "Ballroom Blitz". The fact that British glam-rockers the ''Music/TheSweet'' recorded this and had the hit single does not stop it being attributed to the BOC. Nor does the fact it was written by another songwriting team [[note]]Chinn and Chapman[[/note]] stop it being credited to Eric Bloom and Donald Roeser. OK, it ''sounds'' like something the BOC might have recorded or at least covered live - but they've never been anywhere near it. Consider the opening lyrics:

** Strange for a band whose members are called Eric, Buck, Allen, Albert and Joey. These are, in reality, the first names of the Sweet.

* [[SpeedyTechnoRemake Freeform/happy hardcore remixes]] from the 2000's are often misattributed to the Norwegian duo Nightcore, and some even misapply their name as a (sub)genre.

* No, "Die Trying" is not by Linkin Park. It's by Art of Dying. It doesn't help that it sounds a lot like "From The Inside."
** No, it's not by Three Days Grace, but there is a connection; Adam Gontier's cousin Cale is the band's bassist.

* "All The Young Dudes" by Mott The Hoople is constantly misatributed to DavidBowie. He wrote it, sang the chorus and recorded his own version, so they are right, FromACertainPointOfView.

* No, "Epic" ([[RefrainFromAssuming not "You Want It All"]]) is not by the Music/RedHotChiliPeppers. It's by FaithNoMore. For starters, Mike Patton doesn't sound ''that'' much like Anthony Kiedis. Though he may be trying, and the song is kind of a parody of them (the video sure as hell is), so we can see where you would make that mistake.
