* {{Europop}} group Novaspace replaced frontwoman Jessica Boehrs with Jenny Marsala after the former left in 2006 to pursue a TV acting career, and re-recorded their prior singles "Dancing with Tears In My Eyes" (Music/{{Ultravox}} cover) and "Time After Time"(Music/CyndiLauper cover) with Marsala on vocals. Needless to say, their popularity and musical quality took a nosedive.

* Music/LynyrdSkynyrd is probably the most extreme example in popular music. In 1977, a plane crash killed Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines (who had performed on the band's just-released ''Street Survivors'' album), his sister Cassie (a member of the band's backup singers, The Honkettes), and several members of the band's production staff. The crash also injured bassist Leon Wilkeson, who needed over two years of physical therapy to recover. The band disbanded after the tragedy, but reformed ten years later with Ronnie's younger brother Johnny and a rotating cast of new blood. Of the original members, only Rossington remains.

* An unusual example is The Shadows. They were formed as a backing group for Cliff Richard, but took to releasing their own records as well, and, as if to emphasise this trope, the majority of their records were instrumentals. But they kept their association with Richard all the while and continued to work with him as well. It's hard to say if they were taking regular vacations or if they had become a successful band in their own right who often collaborated with their old frontman -- of their 69 charting records, 34 were with Cliff and 35 without.

* Danny and the Juniors released "At The Hop" in 1957, and didn't have a whole lot of success after that. Danny Rapp committed suicide in 1983, but the remainder of the quartet - now a trio - continues performing on the oldies circuit as Danny and the Juniors despite the absence of anyone named Danny in the group.

* After Music/MeatLoaf attained popular success of ''Bat Out Of Hell'', songwriter-producer Music/JimSteinman wrote a followup album for the singer. When he proved unable to perform due to illness, Steinman brought Meat Loaf's band into the studio and sang the songs himself, releasing the album, ''Bad For Good'', under his own name. While critics generally deemed it mediocre and found Steinman's voice a poor substitute for Meat Loaf's, it achieved a Top 40 hit with "Rock and Roll Dreams Come Through". Meat Loaf would eventually record most of the songs on the album himself for various projects.

* The Pogues continued for a few years after firing lead singer and songwriter Shane [=MacGowan=], who was temporarily replaced by Joe Strummer of Music/TheClash before the band settled on co-founder Spider Stacy as their new lead singer. Their first post-[=MacGowan=] album, 1993's ''Waiting for Herb'' produced one of their biggest hits, "Tuesday Morning", but the album itself was savaged by critics and suffered poor sales. The band called it quits after their next album 1996's ''Pogue Mahone'' fared worse critically and sales-wise, and did not reunite until the members patched things up with [=MacGowan=] in 2001.

* Music/DaYoopers have continued nearly 20 years beyond the departure of longtime vocalist/guitarist Joe Potila. Since they're a NoHitWonder, it's not as if their success has waned much.

* Music/DaYoopers have continued nearly 20 years beyond the 1995 departure of longtime vocalist/guitarist frontman Joe Potila. Since they're Potila, who co-wrote and co-produced everything with drummer Jim [=DeCaire=], played lead guitar, and sang many of the lead vocals. His replacement Jim Bellmore took over in all of those duties, while also expanding the band's sound through his skills on several other instruments (notably, he also played bass on ''We're Still Rockin''', as it was recorded while the band was between bassists). As the band is a NoHitWonder, it's not as if their like they had much success has waned much.to lose in the first place.

* Little Texas also went through this a lot. Initially, they traded lead vocal duties between Brady Seals and Tim Rushlow (with backing vocals from two other members), but Tim became the lone lead vocalist after Brady left for a solo career in 1995, with Jeff Huskins taking over Brady's role as keyboardist. The band's lone album with Huskins bombed, as did Seals' and Rushlow's subsequent solo careers. After Little Texas re-established in 2004 without Brady or Tim (both of whom had other projects going at the time), they chose Steven Troy as their new lead vocalist. He left after about a year, and lead vocal duties were given to guitarist Porter Howell (who, interestingly, had not even been a backing vocalist before then).

* Exile went both ways with this. In their original incarnation in TheSeventies, with Jimmy Stokley on lead vocals, they scored only one major hit with "Kiss You All Over". Many failed albums later, Stokley was replaced by J. P. Pennington, and the group reinvented itself as a country band which scored ten #1 hits in TheEighties. After several members quit in 1990, the band lost its contract with Creator/EpicRecords but gained one with [[Creator/AristaRecords Arista Nashville]]. At this point, lead vocal duties alternated between existing bassist Sonny [=LeMaire=]

* Music/FunkerVogt's long time FaceOfTheBand, Jens Kastel, left in 2013 after the release of ''Companion in Crime'', being replaced by Sacha Korn on the ill-received single "Sick Man". Luckily, they found a better replacement in the form of Chris L. from Agonoize for their 2017 album ''Code of Conduct''.
