* Music/FrankZappa remixed and re-recorded some parts of ''Music/WereOnlyInItForTheMoney'' and ''Music/CruisingWithRubenAndTheJets'' in the mid 1980s with New-Wave style sounds. Not surprisingly, fans were pissed, and as a result, Zappa's estate restored and released ''Money'' to its original form in 1995, while the original mix of ''Ruben'' wouldn't appear again for another 15 years.

The Not Remix is different from what people think of when they hear the term 'remix'. This type of remix doesn't set out to add a new backing track to pre-existing lyrics. They're extremely similar to the original song. In fact, some people may not even realize that it ''is'' a remix. And that's sorta the point. These remixes aren't made to be different; they're made to be 'better' than the originals.

* Music/{{Weezer}} have a couple of individual songs that were given a slightly different mix for their single versions: "Say It Ain't So" received a subtle remix, which the band liked enough that they replaced the album version with it (the remastered deluxe version of ''The Blue Album'' has the original mix as a bonus track). "Pink Triangle" was given a slight remix for its release as a single, including a newly recorded bass guitar part, played by someone from outside the band: It was decided the bass line needed some revising, but usual bassist Matt Sharp wasn't available due to work with his other group The Rentals, so Scott Riebling of Letters To Cleo filled in.

* Music/TrishaYearwood's Greatest Hits album ''[=PrizeFighter=]'' had all of the songs re-recorded, not only because she was on another label (Creator/RCARecords) than the one on which she had her big hits (MCA Records), but also because she wanted to remove some "dated" production styles such as the reverb on "Walkaway Joe" but otherwise keep the recording close to the original.

* Music/{{Die Krupps}}' Greatest Hits album ''Too Much History'' consists primarily of this. [[WordOfGod Jürgen Engler said this was because]] he felt unsatisfied with the older versions, and that it would be more fair to the fans to give them some new material.

* Music/ThePolice GreatestHitsAlbum ''Message In A Bottle: The Classics'' includes a "New Classic Rock Mix" of "Message In A Bottle" alongside the original: the most noticeable difference in the remix is that the guitars are a bit louder and the bass is a bit quieter.

* TheB52s "6060-842" was remixed for single release to make Fred Schneider's vocals more prominent in the mix than they are on the album version (this is immediately noticeable in the intro). When releasing the album on CD, Island accidentally included this version on the album instead of the album version. The original mix is only available on that on the Warner CD.
** In 1990, the band remixed "Party Mix" and "Mesopotamia" as they weren't happy with the original mixes. Whilst Party Mix is a simple case of bringing up the percussion, 'Mesopotamia' is a more pronounced case of this trope. There is a notable difference in 'Deep Sleep', as they turned off some of the delay. Elsewhere there are a significant amount of panning differences (notably, the harmony vocals will be panned to different channels to hear them separately and Ricky Wilson's guitar jumps to different channels). They were planning to do this with other albums but the project fell through. Fred Schneider did however remix his own first album 'Fred Schneider And The Shake Society' around the same time.

* The 2008 Music/{{Genesis}} remasters. No real changes to the songs, but the mixes bring a lot of softer parts out (the counter-melody lyrics at the end of "Lilywhite Lilith," for example. It especially takes "The Battle of Epping Forest" a ''lot'' further away from EndingFatigue than the original CD release.)

* Music/{{Rush}}'s 2002 ''Vapor Trails'' was highly criticized as being a casualty of the LoudnessWar, which is why it was remixed from the original masters to give it better dynamic range and re-released in 2013, including a vinyl pressing.

* The Music/FlamingLips' ''Music/TheSoftBulletin'' is mainly produced by Dave Fridmann, but as potential singles, "Race for the Prize" and "Waitin' for a Superman" were given somewhat different mixes by Peter Mokran, who mostly mixes or engineers for pop and R & B artists like R. Kelly. They couldn't decide which versions of the songs should go on the album, and ultimately ended up including both versions of both songs by tacking on Fridmann's mixes of "Race For The Prize" and Mokran's mix of "Waiting For A Superman" at the end of the track listing. Oddly, the Mokran version of "Buggin'" is listed as a "remix" on the packaging despite the fact that the original mix was only released on ''The Soft Bulletin 5.1'' in 2006 - more than 16 years later. Also, the band made "stereo mixes" of a few songs from ''Zaireeka'' (an album consisting of four discs meant to be played simultaneously) and used them as ''The Soft Bulletin'' b-sides.

* Music/IggyPop remixed 'Music/RawPower' by his old band The Stooges in 1997. This was particularly divisive - Raw Power was originally supposed to sound over-loud, crunchy, and ugly, [[BrokenBase and a lot of people think Iggy's remixes of the album are much more like how the songs were supposed to sound.]] [[LoudnessWar Others, including two of Iggy's bandmates criticised the mix.]]

** The '02 reissues of 'Blizzard Of Ozz' and 'Diary Of A Madman' had the original drums and bass parts replaced. This was so Ozzy could avoid paying royalties to Lee Kerslake (Drums) and Bob Daisley (Bass), who sued him for unpaid royalties back in '86. Many fans were ... 'displeased'.
** Bark at the Moon was also remixed in 2002. Some guitar parts are missing. [[FlatWhat What?]]

** Update: In 2010, all of John Lennon's albums were remastered (by the same team who remastered the Beatles in '09), and have used the original mixes, which are now the standard again!
* Two of Music/TheBeatles records (Help! and Rubber Soul) were remixed in the 1987 by George Martin. He did this because he considers the original stereo mixes of these albums experimental, and [[GratuitousPanning not very good]]. He had intended to remix the first four albums as well, but was not given enough time to by EMI. When Music/TheBeatles' catalog was remastered in 2009, the 1987 George Martin remixes were used for the stereo version of the albums; the original stereo mixes showed up as 'bonuses' on the mono discs.

* Many compilations of Neil Diamond's hits do contain re-recordings or live recordings in some manor. On comprehensive compilations that were issued by Columbia that claimed to span his career, often times, only the 1960s hits on Bang Records and the 1970s-1980s hits on Columbia are originals while those on Uni/MCA were live recordings, and on MCA issued comps such as Glory Road, the songs from the Bang era are live versions. On original vinyl issues and 1996 CD issues of his best selling "His 12 Greatest Hits," Sweet Caroline and Holly Holy are represented by live versions while on the Half Speed Mastered LP and the 1985 CD issue of it, Sweet Caroline and Holly Holy are the originals with some remixing done. There have been multiple mono and stereo mixes of the Bang recordings that were done in the 1960s that each compilation of this era of his work on LP either has mono mixes, stereo LP versions, first time stereo mixes for songs never released in stereo, etc. The only comprehensive compilation that uses all of the originals of everything is the "In My Lifetime" boxed set issued by Columbia.

** Joan Armatrading's best known song is probably "Love and Affection." One of her compilation albums was reported to contain a version which had been remixed to sound more like people remembered it.

* In 1987, Music/ZZTop released a BoxedSet titled ''Six Pack'', featuring not-remixes of six of their first seven albums[[note]]''Degüello'' was not included[[/note]] - The band opted to remix the songs and add drum machines and occasional guitar effects, with the intention of making their early work sound more in line with their more commercially successful 80's material. Fans of their more straight blues-rock 70's sound were not happy. ''Tres Hombres'' and ''Fandango!'' had their original mixes restored for individual re-releases - if you buy a new cd copy of any of the other early albums, chances are you're getting the 1987 remixed version, unless you buy "The Complete Studio Albums" boxed set on Rhino from 2003 which consists of all original mixes of everything including the 6 albums that were remixed in 1987.

* The Warner Bros. CD issues of Peter, Paul & Mary's 1960s catalog is remixed from the multitracks by Lee Herschberg and Peter Yarrow to make the music sound more "current" for the time with added reverb, etc. in 1989. The "Very Best Of" compilation and the "Carry It On" boxed set on Rhino revert to the original mixes and audiophile labels have issued some of their albums on SACD using the original mixes.

** "Valerie" by Music/SteveWinwood was originally released as a single in 1982; it's highest position was #70 on Billboard. It was remixed in '87 for Windwood's best of 'Chronicles'. This version peaked at #9, and is the one most listeners are familiar with.
