* Popstar Music/ArianaGrande was promoted as the new darling of pop music. However, there were rumors about her having a JerkAss personality that followed her for years. Those rumors were confirmed when she was caught on video talking disrespectfully to an employee at a doughnut shop for no reason, while licking doughnuts that she didn't buy on a tray. She was also caught saying she hated America and Americans. That is, until a concert of hers in Manchester was bombed by an ISIS supporter. The attack, which killed 22 of her fans and injured many others, reversed her reputation overnight, and she was once again seen as a beloved role model for teenage girls and a brave feminist icon. Time will tell if her image remains that way.

Those rumors were confirmed in the summer of 2015, when she was caught on video talking disrespectfully to an employee at a doughnut shop for no reason, while licking doughnuts that she didn't buy on a tray. She was also caught saying she hated America and Americans. That is, image would follow her for the next year and a half until May 22, 2017, when a concert of hers in Manchester was bombed by an ISIS supporter.

* Despite her rehabilitation and remarkable CareerResurrection in 2009, it may be difficult in some circles for Music/BritneySpears to live down her hard-partying CreatorBreakdown period from 2005-2008, at least where {{Twitter}} trolls are concerned.

* The band Orleans had two big hits in the 1970's with "Dance With Me" and "Still the One". In addition, band leader John Hall has had a successful post-music career as a political activist and Congressman. However, he and the band still have to contend with memories of [[http://roadtickle.com/img/humor/8-album-covers-to-make-you-cringe/orleans-waking-and-dreaming.jpg this less-than-dignified album cover.]]

* Being a winner on a reality singing competition can be especially painful when [[TheRunnerUpTakesItAll the losers become more successful than you]]. Buddy Jewell, Taylor Hicks, Kris Allen, and Diversity have all been overshadowed by acts like Miranda Lambert, (Chris) Daughtry, Adam Lambert, and Susan Boyle, respectively. However, nobody has this worse than Matt Cardle. The winner of the 2010 X Factor, he has been overshadowed by ''three'' acts: Rebecca Ferguson, One Direction, and Cher Lloyd, who finished second to fourth place. As if that wasn't bad enough, add the fact that One Direction have become a global phenomenon and it's not easy being Matt Cardle.

* Our Lady Peace. They were a popular post-grunge band of the late '90s and early 2000s. But unfortunately they'll always be known as the band who made "Whatever", the theme song of Wrestling/ChrisBenoit.
* Fuel, the band best known for hits like "Shimmer", "Hemmorhage", and "Falls on Me", may never live down "Leave The Memories Alone", which has become a huge meme in the ProfessionalWrestling fanbase.


Added DiffLines:

* A tragic example is Music/ChristinaGrimmie. She was a popular [=YouTube=] star and contestant on ''Series/TheVoice'', who is sadly better known for her tragic murder by a crazed gunman at one of her concerts. The worst part of it, however, is the fact that the tragedy took on June 10, 2016 at a concert hall in Orlando, only miles away from the nightclub that two days later was the scene of the worst mass shooting in U.S history.

* Music/TheSweet: Preferring to be associated with their hard rock songs like "Ballroom Blitz," "Love Is Like Oxygen" and "Fox on the Run," this British glam rock group never was able to distance itself from their biggest hit ever, the bubblegum sounding "Little Willy."

* Finger Eleven's biggest hit, "One Thing" is a calming, mellow song with a hard rock edge and riff to it. Unfortunately, it's is also forever known as being used in a promo for a [[Wrestling/ChrisBenoit rather infamous professional wrestler.]]

* Natalia Kills and Willy Moon are far better known for making fun of a contestant on ''Series/TheXFactor'' than for their music career.

* HueyLewisAndTheNews song "Hip To Be Square" was a hit song in the 80s that put the band on the map. Nowadays, it will forever be linked to that one scene in the film ''Film/AmericanPsycho'', or the infamous "[[MemeticMutation Hip to Fuck Bees]]" meme.

* Onyx member Fredro Starr is rarely remembered by many contemporary rap fans, and when they do find out about him, they will always remember him as the guy who got snuffed by rapper Main/FiftyCent over a misunderstood situation at the VIBE Awards back in 2003 despite Fredro's friendly gesture to 50. Even in videos and topics of Fredro where 50 Cent is ''not even germane to'', there are still fans who constantly bring it up to use against Fredro.

** His cocaine-fueled, reputedly in-character moment in an interview during his "Thin White Duke" period (when a controversial British politician gave his infamous "Rivers Of Blood" speech and Neo-Nazi skinhead groups were emerging in England), where he mentioned that "[[ThoseWackyNazis Britain could benefit from having a fascist leader]]" and calling UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler the world's first rock star often haunt him, and it took a toll on his reputation. It didn't help that a photo of him as the TWD in mid-wave, interpreted by BritishNewspapers as a Nazi salute, was tabloid fodder at the time. These events helped lead to the creation of the "Rock Against Fascism" movement.
* Creator/JessicaSimpson will always be remembered for her blunder about "Chicken of the Sea"-brand tuna on her reality TV show ''Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica''[[note]]back when she was still married to former 98 Degrees singer Nick Lachey[[/note]]
