* * "White Lines (Don't Don't Do It)" is not by Grandmaster Flash, but by Melle Mel, a former member of Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five. It doesn't help that originally the record label, Sugar Hill Records, perpetuated the confusion by crediting the single to Grandmaster Flash and Melle Mel, despite Grandmaster Flash not being present on the song at all. That said, the Music/DuranDuran cover of the song did feature guest appearances from both Melle Mel and Grandmaster Flash.

Added DiffLines:

* Not every bluegrass song is by Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, or Ralph Stanley. And if you hear a female vocal on a bluegrass song, it won't always be Music/AlisonKraussAndUnionStation.

Added DiffLines:

* No, "Empty Frames" is not by Creator/NeYo, bur rather by Davon Farris. Can't blame those who uploaded the song on YouTube and [=P2P=] networks though, as Davon's voice sounds kinda' similar to Ne-Yo's.
** Ne-Yo has since addressed this discrepancy in a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YwR4HbCyrM short video promoting Farris]].

* "American Girls" is not by Music/{{Weezer}}, but by Homie - a short-lived side-project of Weezer's Rivers Cuomo. Matt Sharp was also featured on the studio version of the song, which means that half of the original lineup of Weezer were involved.
** Not just half; Brian Bell also sings back up vocals, and Pat Wilson plays drums, though technically he only played a little bit and that got looped for the whole song. So the entire original lineup of Weezer is on the song, it just happens that most of them aren't doing anything other than singing, and there's a bunch of other musicians on the song.

While mainly the work of Rivers Cuomo, Matt Sharp was also featured on Sharp, and a bunch of non-Weezer affiliated musicians, the rest of the ''Blue Album''/''Pinkerton'' era band made minor contributions to the studio version of recording: Pat Wilson played a short drum part that was looped throughout the song, which means that half of the original lineup of Weezer were involved.
