** Dr. Dre rose from the ashes of NWA to release ''The Chronic,'' where he pioneered the g-funk sound that became a benchmark for hip-hop for the next several years. Still one of hip-hop's premier producers.

* Music/NickiMinaj's pop smarts, showmanship and unflappable, dominant personality made her ''easily'' the face of HipHop in the 2010s. Started out as hip-hop's answer to Gaga's theatrics and weirdness, but shook it off for a more mature image, and became the biggest feminist icon on the top 40, with the possible exception of Beyonce.

* While mainstream hip-hop during the '80s had devolved into a gimmick, West Coast hip-hop (DrDre, Music/SnoopDogg, Music/{{NWA}}) gave birth to gangsta rap and made hip-hop a force to be reckoned with.

* Music/RaymondScott, a relentless visionary who's most famous for his bouncy compositions that became the soundtrack to many a cartoon. Like Glenn Miller, he and his Raymond Scott Quintette were more about tight arrangements than the improvisational skills that jazz made its name on. He also helped pioneer ElectronicMusic, including the invention of the Electronium, the world's first synthesizer. Between all this, he scored tons of television shows and advertisements, and made three extremely experimental albums designed for infants.

** Of course, if ever there was a ''true'' American version of Queen, Music/{{Styx}} would be a candidate. Fronted (during their peak years) by high-voiced keyboard virtuoso Dennis [=DeYoung=], Styx were progressive rock gods, prone to huge rock operas, epic power ballads, musical theatre and concept albums, and tethered it all with some solid HardRock chops. Proof that you could be arty and still be a mainstream success.

** From TheOtherWiki: "Over time, his hearing loss became profound: there is a well-attested story that, at the end of the premiere of his Ninth Symphony, he had to be turned around to see the tumultuous applause of the audience; hearing nothing, he wept."

* The success of Music/MatchboxTwenty - who were blessed with Rob Thomas' solid baritone and a solid batch of radio favorites - was probably the point where the willful eclecticism of the 90s began funneling into post-grunge, a slicker, more {{Everyman}}, blue-collar approach to radio rock. Which, of course, lead to the success of bands like Music/{{Creed}}, Music/{{Nickelback}}, Music/ThreeDaysGrace, Music/ThreeDoorsDown and [[FollowTheLeader a hell of a lot more.]]
