** 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]]

* Music/TheBlackCrowes front man Chris Robinson will never live down that time he spat on a woman in a convenience store. At first, he denied it even happened, but later admitted the truth. According to him, their tour had stopped in a town that stopped selling beer after sundown, and he was waiting for the store to empty in hopes of bribing the clerk to sell him a six-pack. A woman recognized him from tv, and her friend started yelling at Chris (apparently trying to talk her friend out of leaving with him). Fed up, Chris spat in her face, then ran around the corner to his hotel room. [[CaptainObvious It was not hard for the cops to find him]].

* Publicly admitting that your views on Intellectual Property mimic the ones of the Profit-Happy American Entertainment Industry can be a tough thing to live down; his crusade against Napster is the first thing that comes to mind whenever many people think of [[Music/{{Metallica}} Lars Ulrich]].

* Tim "The Ripper" Owens is a pretty good metal vocalist, but he's likely doomed to be known as the guy who ruined Music/JudasPriest and IcedEarth.

* Jonathan Richman led an illustrious career, leading [[Music/TheModernLovers The Modern Lovers]], had John Cale produce their album, and being an influence to punk rock in the process. If you've never heard of him, you might otherwise be familiar with him being the singing troubador in [[Film/TheresSomethingAboutMary There's Something About Mary]].

* Billy Squier will never live down the bizarre [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZvl2aqIyNg Rock Me Tonight]] video that showed him cavorting on a bedroom set in a pink tank top and led to suspicions that he was gay and an irreversible career decline.

* John Greely, who sang on Iced Earth's Night Of The Stormrider, will never live down the rumors that he was kicked out of the band for being anti-semitic whilst on tour in Germany. In reality, he never did this - he just wanted to leave the band to be with his family (albeit in the middle of a tour). This annoyed band leader Jon Schaffer so much that he made up the story to make himself look good for the media.

* Mention Decca Records in the presence of anyone who knows rock history, and you're sure to be greeted with a likely-apocryphal quote: "Sorry, Mr. Epstein, but guitar groups are on their way out." Yes, Decca turned down the Beatles. Of course, it was true at the time that their loud and hard style WAS out of favor on the charts (they were the ones who brought it back into fashion a year later), and besides that, their audition tape (which is now widely available for anyone to buy) really isn't very good. Whatever its charms, there is no way anyone listening to it in January 1962 could identify what they later proved themselves capable of. Besides, every other major label in Britain also turned them down (the label they did end up on, Parlophone, was known as a sort of backwater for novelty acts before they became stars on it). But Decca had the bad luck to have a specific date (January 1, 1962) and a surviving audition tape, and a pithy quote that was probably never really uttered in the first place.

* 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''.

* Deathcore act Rose Funeral is still best known for The Uno Incident - at a show in Tulsa in 2010, they repeatedly assaulted a small group of young metalheads after the group chose to play a game of Uno in front of the stage during their set, and eventually got one of the fans ejected. The band was savaged all across the net, with members of the other bands from that tour (headlined by Death Metal veterans Nile, who were also supported by fellow Death Metal acts Immolation and Krisiun; most fans were there for these bands and unimpressed by RF's presence as the opener, not to mention that the other bands had issues with RF before this) encouraging their fans to further harass them. Most of the more vitriolic hate died off within a year or so, but to this day it's not uncommon to find Uno jokes in their Website/YouTube comments.

* 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.]]

* Music/{{Disturbed}}'s SignatureSong "''Down with the Sickness''" is probably most known for the staccato scream-[[BuffySpeak thing]] that David Draiman does near the beginning and end (Oh-wa-ah-ah-ah!!). He's only used this technique possibly three or four times in the band's discography, but since the song has seen use in a number of film trailers and other media, the group's detractors have taken to calling them "The Monkey Noise Band".

* B.o.B. will never live down "Flatline", which he released after a Twitter beef with UsefulNotes/NeilDeGrasseTyson. Thr song expresses B.o.B.'s belief that [[FlatWorld the Earth is flat]] (among other conspiracies), and has speech clips by Tyson himself disproving the theory.
