* Ed Markey is the junior Senator from Massachusetts. Good luck finding anyone outside of Massachusetts who could tell you that, though, because the ''senior'' Senator from Massachusetts happens to be a populist firebrand named Elizabeth Warren who eats national attention for breakfast.

* In TheSixties three men created titles that were the foundation for Franchise/MarvelUniverse and Creator/MarvelComics as we know and love - Creator/StanLee with artists Creator/JackKirby and Creator/SteveDitko. However, while Lee had a much lesser role than many believe, often providing just general plot outline or the idea and writing dialogue on the already finished pages, he also had a much more media presence and popularity among the fans, overshadowing latter two even in the mainstream eyes. This, combined with their increasing mistreatment ended with both of them leaving the company, a move that for many was the beginning of UsefulNotes/TheBronzeAgeOfComicBooks

* NuMetal was often seen as the most commercially profitable genre of metal during its prime, with numerous acts gaining massive commercial success. In reality, this only applied to a handful of bands. Namely Music/{{Korn}}, Music/{{Deftones}}, Music/LimpBizkit, Music/{{Slipknot}}, Music/{{Disturbed}}, Music/{{Godsmack}}, Music/LinkinPark, Music/PapaRoach, and Music/{{Evanescence}} (and Music/SystemOfADown, if you consider them nu metal). Music/{{Sevendust}}, Trapt, Saliva, P.O.D., and Music/DrowningPool also had success, but not to the same extent. Compare this to the glut of acts who failed to have that same success such as Coal Chamber, 36 Crazyfists, Alien Ant Farm, Martyr AD, Guano Apes, Crazy Town, Stereomud, Ultraspank, Spineshank, Systematic, Injected, Skrape, Primer 55, Unloco, Orgy, Presence, Hot Action Cop, Demon Hunter, Nonpoint, Mushroomhead, Shuvel, Twisted Method, Skindred, Static-X, Flaw, Cold, Dry Kill Logic, Kittie, Machine Head, hed (p.e.), Ra, Lifer, Otep...

* After the Steiner Brothers split up, Wrestling/{{Scott|Steiner}} became the genetic freak "Big Poppa Pump" while Rick has more or less faded into obscurity, which is ironic because Rick was more popular with the fans than Scott was prior to the split.

* Wrestling/MattHardy is far from unknown, but still not nearly as recognized as his younger brother [[Wrestling/JeffHardy Jeff]].

* Ever heard of Christian Friedrich Henrici (aka Picander, his pseudonym), the lyricist for Johann Sebastian Bach's cantatas? Chances are even those who are into Bach's music haven't heard of him. Picander (as he is known on TheOtherWiki) wrote the lyrics for many of Bach's religious and secular cantatas, yet he is obscure to all but the most learned Bach scholars. Part of the reason why he is so unknown is because it is general practice to attribute a classical work to the one who has composed the music; hence, Picander is unknown while Bach is always in the spotlight.

* On a more macro level, there's are entire swaths of musicians that aren't talked about. Who plays the instruments during a BackstreetBoys concert? Who wrote CelineDion's hits? Who records, mixes, engineers KatyPerry? What ''is'' a RecordProducer? These people provide contributions to the music industry that are absolutely vital, but it's an easy bet that the average troper reading this entry hasn't once spared them a thought.
